IPL 2018 KKR vs DD scores update

23:36 pm IST: Terrible batting performance from Delhi. They have been bowled out for 129 in the 15th over, and they lose the contest at the Eden Gardens by 71 runs. After Rishabh Pant got out, their innings just fell apart, with Sunil Narine taking 3 wickets across two overs. He became the 11th bowler in IPL history to reach the 100-wicket mark. After conceding 11 runs in his first over, the KKR spinner returned in 11th over to remove Chris Morris to reach the milestone. With the Morris wicket, Narine joined Lasith Malinga, Amit Mishra, Piyush Chawla, Harbhajan Singh, Dwayne Bravo, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Ashish Nehra, Vinay Kumar, R Ashwin and Zaheer Khan in the 100-wicket club. The next two wickets also brought him the Purple Cap as he overtook Mumbai spinner Mayank Markande. Click here for scores. That's it from us. Do join tomorrow for the Mumbai-Bangalore game. Till then, goodbye.  

10.41 pm IST: Delhi haven't had a good start in pursuit of 201 at the Eden Gardens. Jason Roy, Shreyas Iyer, captain Gautam Gambhir all have gone back to the dugout inside the first six overs. Rishabh Pant and Aussie Glenn Maxwell have improved Delhi's situation a little but there is still a lot more to do. Right now the biggest question is: Can Delhi make a match of it? After six overs, they are 56/3. Click here for scores. 

9.53 pm IST: KKR will be very happy with this score of 200/9. What a lovely innings by Nitish Rana, 59 off 35 balls. Andre Russell appeared to threaten KL Rahul's fastest fifty off 14 balls in the IPL when Trent Boult bowled the West Indies allrounder in the 18th over with a yorker for 41 (12 balls, 6x6s). Rana fell in the next over and then Shubman Gill, Piyush Chawla & Tom Curran in the last over of the innings. To be honest, KKR would have liked 10-15 runs more but these wickets hurt their ambitions a little. But overall they will be happy. It's definitely a match-winning total at this ground. Now the ball is in KKR bowlers' court. Leg spinner Rahul Tewatia bowled the last over and took three wickets to return 3/18. Chris Morris and Trent Boult took two wickets each for Delhi.

9.20 pm IST: KKR (145/4 in 15 overs) are definitely heading towards a big score. Chris Lynn (31) got out shortly after Uthappa's departure but after that captain Dinesh Karthik (19) played some really attractive shots during his innings of 19. However, the real impetus is coming from Nitish Rana and Andre Russell who are putting the Delhi bowlers to the sword. If KKR don't reach 200 from this position, they will be very disappointed with themselves. Click here for scores.  

8.55 pm IST: Since our last update, KKR have improved their situation greatly despite losing Robin Uthappa for 35 (19 balls). Delhi will be relieved with that wicket as Uthappa was looking good for a big score. Tried to hit Shahbaz Nadeem out of the park but got an edge and the bowler himself took the skier to dispatch Uthappa. At 85/2 in 10 overs with Chris Lynn and Nitish Rana at the crease, Kolkata will feel better about their chances of getting a nice total. Another 85 runs and they will back themselves to win on this tricky wicket at the Eden Gardens. Click here for scores.   

8.30 pm IST: Good start by Delhi. They have got rid of the dangerous Sunil Narine for 1, caught by Glenn Maxwell in the slips after the ball comes off Rishabh Pant's glove. The Eden Gardens pitch appears to be full of tricks. Trent Boult, Chris Morris, spinner Shahbaz Nadeem all look excited at the response they have received from the pitch. Chris Lynn and Robin Uthappa are at the crease and KKR will look to them to make things better in the next few overs. KKR 32/1 in five overs. Click here for scores.  

7.52 pm IST: Hello and welcome to the KKR-DD encounter from IPL 2018. Gautam Gambhir returns to Kolkata as Delhi skipper. The two-time winner with Kolkata wasn't retained by the franchise earlier this year and he would definitely want them to regret their decision by leading Delhi to victory at the iconic Eden Gardens. Here is the toss udpate. Gambhir has won the toss and decided to have a field. He knows a great deal about this venue and that's definitely going to stand him in good stead today. One change for Delhi: Chris Morris returns from illness. Out goes Daniel Christian. KKR also make one change. They bring back fast bowler Tom Curran in place of Mitchell Starc. Remember, Delhi won their last game against Mumbai, while Kolkata lost their last match to Hyderabad. Click here for scores.
