END OF OVER:
20 | 14 Runs 1 Wkt | KKR: 185/8 | RR: 9.25

  • Kuldeep Yadav10 (5b)
  • Kagiso Rabada4-0-41-1
  • Amit Mishra4-0-36-1

In all IPL, this is the most runs scored by batsmen batting No.5 and below in the first innings of a match- 138. Top five are all KKR

9.54pm Right, 186 is the number for Delhi Capitals after they tried keeping Andre Russell quiet, but even after taking a blow on his shoulder from a Harshal Patel beamer, he bludgeoned a 28-ball 62. KKR's start wasn't great at all, they were 61 for 5 in 9.1 overs before the Russell-Karthik stand that put together 95 runs. Can Delhi's India-heavy batting chase it down? Ankur will start the chase soon...

Dre Russ: It was a tough start for me, getting hit on the shoulder but batting with the captain we decided to bat it out. I was backing myself and told DK that 'I'm getting pain so might as well go for it and get out while doing what I do best'. At one point I was trying to get 150, but backing myself and with that partnership with DK…we'll now look to defend it.

Rabada to Chawla, 1 run, OUT, fullish to end the innings, he sends it down the ground to long-on and Kuldeep, for some reason, was saying 'no' for the second run, to be run-out ultimately

Morris to Karthik, no run, bit down the leg side, it deflect off the pad and goes fine before Pant dives to his left and saves four

Morris to Russell, OUT, finally, they've managed to dismiss him! Back to the short ball, Russell pulled, got a top-edge and it went high towards fine leg. Rabada ran from the circle and bumped into Tewatia who came in from the deep and took the catch rather easily. No damage done to either of them, thankfully, Rabada was only ball-watching

AD Russell c sub (R Tewatia) b Morris 62 (52m 28b 4x4 6x6) SR: 221.42

Morris to Russell, FOUR runs, where do you bowl to him? From wide of the crease, this is a yorker just outside off stump, Russell makes some room and steers it wide of point for four in the gap
17.3
2
Morris to Russell, 2 runs, Pant is appealing for Russell's run-out, but he's safe. Morring banged in a short ball, Russell pulled it and then came back quickly to make it back just in time

Morris around the wicket now

Morris to Russell, FOUR runs, length delivery on middle and leg, Russell makes room and smashes to the leg side, obviously, wide of deep midwicket again

Morris to Karthik, 1 run, Dinesh Karthik has fallen on the ground twice on the same delivery! First he gets a yorker from Morris and loses his balance while working the ball to leg. He gets up, runs across for the single and then dives at the other end to complete the single just in time

One over each left for Morris, Mishra and Rabada. Mishra bowling in the death overs might prove to be dangerous for Delhi Capitals. Morris to finish first...
