Delhi Capitals 185 for 6 (Shaw 99, Iyer 43) vs Kolkata Knight Riders 185 for 8 (Russell 62, Karthik 50) Match tied
Super Over: Delhi Capitals 10 for 1 (Pant 6*, Iyer 4, Prasidh 1-10) beat Kolkata Knight Riders 7 for 1 (Russell 4, Uthappa 2*, Karthik 1*, Rabada 1-7)
KKR were sent into bat first. DC bowlers kept things relatively quiet until KKR skipper Dinesh Karthik and the inform orange cap holder Andre Russell came to bat. Karthik went to a brisk half-century from 36 balls but it was Russell who the main aggressor scoring 62 off only 28 balls.
In reply DC opener Prithvi Shaw was unfortunate to be dismissed on 99 when he tried to take on a short ball from Lockie Ferguson but was caught at short third man by Karthik. The match was still in DC favor when they needed 12 runs from 9 balls with 6 wickets in hand but could only manage to level the scores.
DC managed to get 10 runs in their super over which never seemed enough for the inform KKR batsmen. Rabada, however, managed to execute 6 consecutive yorkers which included a 147kph yorker that smashed into Russell’s middle stump.
Match winning yorker from RABADA…
