Kolkata Knight Riders vs Delhi Capitals Commentary

5:56 PM IST Right then, that wraps up this encounter where Kolkata emerge victorious against Delhi, making sure they stay at that second position on the points table. Our attention now shifts to the upcoming clash, where Lucknow will play host to Mumbai at the illustrious Bharat Ratna Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee Ekana Cricket Stadium. The action will take place on Tuesday, 30th of April and will commence at 7.30 pm IST (2 pm GMT), but the excitement begins long before that with extensive pre-match coverage. So, be sure to tune in early for all the anticipation and analysis. Until then, it's time to bid farewell with cheers!
5:55 PM IST Varun Chakaravarthy is the PLAYER OF THE MATCH for his brilliance with the ball. He says that the ball was holding a bit and it helped him to do well. States that the ball when Rishabh Pant's catch was dropped was better than the one he got wicket on. When asked about which of the three wickets was his favourite, he replies that he liked the wicket of Tristan Stubbs the most. He says that he wants to stick to the basics. Shares that when the last game did not go well, Abhishek Nayar, Shahrukh Khan and the support staff spoke to him personally and motivated him. On his funny tweet asking the batters to give cheerleaders a break, he jokingly says that the cheerleaders should dance only for the sixes and not for fours.
5:53 PM IST Shreyas Iyer, the skipper of Kolkata says that after the Powerplay the ball started to spin and the deck was playing differently and is glad they bowled first and got a fair idea of how to overcome the tackiness. Adds that Phil Salt is engrossed in the game and wants to learn a lot and every time turns up to put on such a show on top of the order. Jokes about Sunil Narine not attending any batter's meetings. States that the spinners were good and Varun Chakaravarthy came back and delivered here under pressure after tough games and is simply brilliant in the character shown. Concludes that they don't want to look at the points table and just want to take one game at a time and deliver their best.
5:44 PM IST Time for the presentation ceremony..
5:43 PM IST The man of the moment with the chase, Phil Salt is down for a quick chat. He says it is good to contribute and to see a comeback from that tough last game with the bowlers stepping up was admirable. Adds that going hard up top is a high risk but also puts the odds in their favour. States that keeping wickets can help him assess the conditions up close and helps him when he comes out to bat. He appreciates Sunil Narine and says he is a deep thinker of the game and with his experience, he brings a lot to the partnership. Further adds that if one of them gets going well the other one is happy to rotate the strike and it's part of the communication.
5:36 PM IST The skipper of Delhi, Rishabh Pant says that it was a good option to bat first but they did not play well as a batting unit. States that 153 was below par but they have a long break ahead and will learn from their mistakes. Shares that the batting unit has been doing well but it was not their day today. Feels that they fell short by 40-50 runs and a total between 180-210 would have been good. Ends by saying that the batters did not give enough for the bowlers to defend but it is part and parcel of the game.
5:35 PM IST Earlier in the game, Rishabh Pant's decision to bat first appeared to falter, as Delhi found themselves in a precarious position, losing three wickets within the Powerplay. Despite this setback, skipper Rishabh Pant, alongside Axar Patel and Abishek Porel, showcased glimpses of promise with their innings, yet fell short of converting their starts into substantial contributions. Throughout the innings, Delhi continued to face the challenge of losing wickets at regular intervals, placing their total in jeopardy. However, amidst the chaos, it was Kuldeep Yadav who emerged as a beacon of stability, crafting a crucial unbeaten knock of 35 runs towards the end. His valiant effort propelled Delhi to a respectable total of 153 runs. Kolkata exhibited exceptional bowling, with Varun Chakaravarthy standing out as the pick of the bowlers, claiming three wickets. Meanwhile, Vaibhav Arora and Harshit Rana also made significant contributions, securing two wickets each to bolster Kolkata's formidable bowling display which was then rounded off with an even stronger batting performance to seal the game.
5:33 PM IST Delhi, on the other hand, faced an uphill battle defending a modest total and needed to adopt an all-out attack approach from the outset. Unfortunately, they didn't get the ideal start with the ball, as Lizaad Williams endured a torrid time in the very first over, getting carted around the park by Kolkata's aggressive openers and it got worse by dropping Salt when he was on 15. The bowlers struggled to contain the flow of runs during the Powerplay, putting Delhi on the back foot early in the game. By the time the spinners were brought into the attack after the powerplay, Kolkata had already established a commanding position. Despite managing to pick up a couple of wickets, the game had drifted far beyond Delhi's reach, and it was just a matter of time before Kolkata sealed the victory.
5:30 PM IST What a commanding performance from Kolkata! They strolled through the chase effortlessly, clinching victory with 7 wickets in hand and a whopping 21 balls to spare. This win marks a triumphant return for Kolkata after a challenging previous outing, reaffirming their dominance as they comfortably sit at the second position on the points table. With a modest target of 154 runs to chase down, Kolkata wasted no time in asserting their dominance as Phil Salt and Sunil Narine found boundaries with ease. Their explosive partnership at the top, amassing 79 runs in just 6 overs, catapulted Kolkata well ahead in the game. Although Narine's departure momentarily slowed the momentum, Rinku Singh's brief stint at number 3 couldn't replicate the initial fireworks. However, the skipper Shreyas Iyer, alongside Venkatesh Iyer, calmly guided Kolkata to victory, picking off the remaining runs with ease and authority.

Rasikh Dar to Venkatesh Iyer, 6 runs

SIX! BOOM! Venkatesh Iyer finishes it off in style! Angling across the left-hander, fuller in length and outside off, Venkatesh Iyer picks up the length early and leaves nothing in the tank. Goes inside out over extra cover for a biggie. Kolkata get over the line comfortably with more than 3 overs to spare and 7 wickets in hand.


Rasikh Dar to Venkatesh Iyer, no run

Into the wicket and it is slower as well, on off, Venkatesh Iyer gets on his toes to play the upper cut to ramp it over the keeper but changes his mind at the last moment and decides to let it go.
