Well, that's that from us as well. But don't forget we also have a second match tonight where Kings XI will be taking on Hyderabad. KKR get the much needed two points and inch closer to the playoffs.

Iyer: We should have put more pressure on them. But they bowled well. We could not execute our plans and we need to come back stronger. I think they chose the bowlers really well. They were good in shot selection. Kudos to them and their mindset. I personally feel you need to get off to an amazing start chasing 190 odd. We lost two wickets in powerplay and they put a lot of pressure coming in. Disappointed with the loss. Glad it is happening at this point, there are a lot of learnings from the game.

After 20 overs,Delhi Capitals 135/9 ( Ravichandran Ashwin 14 , Anrich Nortje 0)

KKR win and win big, they beat DC by 59 runs. Rana, Narine, Chakravarthy and Cummins key performers for them. Chakravarthy especially showed today what he can offer. A five-for for him and a day to remember. KKR now have 12 points and would be very happy with the show today.

IPL 2020 LIVE SCORE, Kolkata Knight Riders vs Delhi Capitals latest updates: Cummins finishes his spell. Good day for him as well. Picked up two key wickets upfront and then removed Rabada on the penultimate ball of his spell. Three wicket for him. Tushar Deshpande, left handed bat, comes to the crease. Delhi Capitals need 63 runs in 6 balls.

Preview: Kolkata Knight Riders lock horns with Delhi Capitals in the 42nd match of the Indian Premier League in Abu Dhabi.

KKR would be looking to bounce back hard after an embarrassing defeat at the hands of Royal Challengers Bangalore in Abu Dhabi. KKR were bundled out for 84 and RCB chased it down with 6.3 overs and eight wickets to spare.

Kolkata's batting has disappointed of late and the collapses aren't helping. The approach also needs to change. Shubman Gill has been slow to start off and possessed a strike rate of 111.82. He needs to play the fearless game he is known for. Dinesh Karthik has averaged just 16.11, Tom Banton hasn't found his groove. When Pat Cummins is your player with the third-best batting average (26), you know the rest of the guys have to stand up. They should look at promoting Eoin Morgan up the order, he's been in form and KKR's best batsman with an average of 39.71.

Lockie Ferguson, who bowled with a lot of heart even while defending 84, will be KKR's go-to man in the bowling department. They would expect more from Cummins when it comes to bowling.

Delhi Capitals, on the other hand, suffered a blip with a thumping loss against KXIP in their last match. Shikhar Dhawan's century went in vain as KXIP chased down 165 with one over to spare.

DC's bowling has been one of the best in the tournament and their batting has looked formidable. Shikhar Dhawan has switched on the fifth gear and is batting magnificently. But DC still need to sort out a few chinks in their armour. Prithvi Shaw has struggled at the top of late with scores of 19, 4, 0, 0, 7. Rishabh Pant is back but hasn't clicked in the last couple of matches with scores of 5 and 14.

In the bowling department, Tushar Deshpande had an off day against KXIP going for 41 from 2 overs and he would be looking to bounce back. The spin duo of Axar Patel and R Ashwin will form the fulcrum of their bowling line-up. They would be hoping that Anrich Nortje, who missed the last match, due to injury will be back. He's been brilliant in the tournament and his partnership with Rabada has been a lethal one.

The struggling KKR batsmen face a huge challenge against a formidable DC bowling line-up. With the other second-half table teams gaining momentum, KKR will have to be on their toes and try to win as many matches as they can to stay ahead in the race for Playoffs.

However, in Abu Dhabi, DC will start favourites.
