Earlier in the game, KKR skipper Dinesh Karthik won the toss and following the tradition, opted to bowl first. The decision didn’t prove to be spot on as Shikhar Dhawan and Prithvi Shaw got Delhi off to a flying start. The southpaw got dismissed after scoring a fiery 26, but the former went on to register his second half-century of the season, scoring 66 runs from 41 balls. Iyer brilliantly capitalized the start as boundaries were raining in the end overs. During the course of his stellar knock, the skipper also scored seven fours and six massive sixes.

With such a big score on the board, DC are the favourites to win the game. However, they can’t afford to take KKR lightly. With dashers like Sunil Narine, Andre Russell, Dinesh Karthik and Eoin Morgan in the ranks, Kolkata must be backing themselves to defy the odds and climb the mountain. However, tackling the likes of Kagiso Rabada and Ravichandran Ashwin will not be a cakewalk.
