The change of captain worked for the Delhi Daredevils (DD) team, as they earned the much-needed two points beating Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) by 55 runs in Delhi.

Batting first, Delhi banked on their new skipper, Shreyas Iyer and posted a staggering 219 runs on the board. Iyer remained unbeaten on 93 runs off just 40 deliveries including ten towering sixes.

Moreover, young Prithvi Shaw also registered his first fifty in the IPL, as he contributed with 62 runs.

Meanwhile, in reply, KKR struggled because of their failing top-order. The likes of Robin Uthappa and Nitish Rana have been the mainstays of Kolkata, who failed to get going.

The Delhi bowlers did an amazing job keeping the batsmen in check. However, Shubman Gill (37) and Andre Russell (44) tried their best, but it wasn’t enough, as they fell short by 55 runs.

As a result, Delhi will have now two wins from their seven games and will look to continue the winning momentum.

Here is the players rating:
