KKR defeat DD: Who is the winner and sinner?
Kolkata Knight Riders sealed their second win of the IPL 2018. They thrashed Delhi Daredevils by 71 runs in match number 13 at the Eden Gardens. The home side posted a massive 200/9 courtesy of a late blitz by Andre Russell. In reply, Delhi Daredevils could only manage 129/10. Here is our winner and sinner of this game.
Andre Russell is the winner of this fixture. The West Indian all-rounder scored 41 off 12 balls at a strike rate of 341.66 to take the tie away from the Delhi Daredevils. Russell also did a fantastic job with the ball claiming Shreyas Iyer's wicket. Russell was also dynamic in the field and took a brilliant catch to dismiss Rahul Tewatia.
Gambhir's return to the Eden Gardens, where he spent 7 years as the captain, was not a memorable one. Delhi were chasing a target of 201 and the onus was on Gambhir to give the Daredevils the idea start. But the veteran southpaw was outdone by young Shivam Mavi's pace, who knocked off the stumps of Delhi's captain. Gambhir could only manage 8 runs.
