KKR vs DC Highlights and Match Recap, IPL 2019, Full Cricket Score: Shikhar Dhawan stars in Delhi Capitals' seven-wicket win

Highlights

00:07 (IST)

That's it from us today. Delhi Capitals were clearly the better side on the day and Kolkata Knight Riders were simply blown away right from the start when Ishant clean bowled Denly on the first ball of the match. Shubman Gill and Andre Russell did provide the base for KKR to fight on but the bowlers were just not up to the mark. 

Tomorrow, another two high-octane contest awaits us. Rajasthan will play Mumbai at Wankhede and in the evening game, Kings XI Punjab will host Royal Challengers Bangalore. 

See you then. Take care and good night. 

00:01 (IST)

Shikhar Dhawan is Player of the Match for his 63-ball 97

Dhawan: I knew it could be my first T20 hundred. I knew the team goal was important and that is why I took the single rather than hit a big shot. It was a beautiful wicket to bat on. Supports bowlers as well. We have to adopt quickly in Delhi. It takes a skill to do so. I knew I had to stay till the last. We wanted to build the partnership. It was good for us in the end. 

23:57 (IST)

Shreyas Iyer, Delhi Capitals captain: It was an amazing feeling. Special win, this has never happened since I have been playing. Back-to-back wins feel nice. It as really tough for us to decide the team.  All the team management decided regarding one change.  I think it was a good moive to get it Keemo PaulIt was an outstanding effort. We love batting on such tracks. The way Shikhar Dhawan played showed his experience and class. Amazing to watch him. We had discussed that one of the top order to take responsibilty. Today he came out and delivered the goods. He is an amazing personality and is good to have him around.

23:45 (IST)

Pant: I just try to keep my head clear and play my game. I wanted to take the game deep. You need to control the innings when you are chasing something like 180. I don't focus on what bowler is trying to do. It was fantastic to bat on this pitch. 

23:44 (IST)

Dinesh Karthik. KKR captain: We did not bat well. Expected bowlers to put up a better fight. Shubman got his opportunity and grabbed it with both hands. Picking wickets have been hard at Eden. There are couples of areas bowlers can work hard on and come sback stronger. 

23:40 (IST)

DC score latest updates

Dhawan misses out on a hundred at Eden Gardens but he will still be happy with this knock (97 off 63), he has guided the team to a great victory at Eden Gardens. As Ingram hit that six, Dhawan was the first one to applaud the shot. Team first, individual milestones later. 

23:40 (IST)

Resounding victory by Delhi and it keeps them in the top four.  Dhawan was exceptional, but overs 7-10 with the ball was then turning point. KKR should have gone harder with the bat. A score of 190-200 was required on this pitch. Consecutive losses now for KKR and there is a concern over Russell's fitness.

Rana comes into the attack and guess what Pant is back in the hut. Yet another failure just before the victory mark for him. He needs to work on this aspect quickly. Needs to finish games for his team, develop that habit. Dhawan is on 95 . Needs 5 for his 100. Delhi needs 12 off 12.

This has been a masterclass by Dhawan. Those vintage cover drives, sweeps and the composure once the game has swung in Delhi's favour. KKR have really missed the services of Narine in tbr powerplay.

Krishna back on. Dhawan smokes him for a boundary through the off side. He is playing at his will. Almost pre-conceiving every shot.

23:18 (IST)

Will Dhawan go past his highest score and score his first century in the IPL?

Shikhar Dhawan's highest score in IPL is 95* which he scored while playing for Chargers against KXIP at Dharamsala in 2011.

KKR vs DC Expert’s Voice

A couple of misdirected short balls have helped Dhawan find form. Delhi are well posied in the run chase and need to be cricket smart. Pant has played a couple reckless shots in tight run chases, he needs to be better tonight.

Pant has had enough of playing the dot balls in the last Kuldeep over and in this over, he goes big straightaway against the chinaman bowler. Delhi are on top but feel a bad shot is around the corner from either of the two batsmen as they look to play big shots. 10 off this over.

Ricky is into the attack, not Ponting. Carlos 'Ricky' Brathwaite it is. Two short balls and he was lucky to have been not hit for boundaries on the first two bad balls.

22:31 (IST)

KKR vs DC Expert’s Voice 

Dhawan off to a flier and that should help the others like Pant settle into the innings. DC don't quite have the lower order hitting capabilities like KKR, so they need to stay ahead of the rate. Plus couple of dramatic collapses are bound to play on their mind during the run chase.

IPL 2019, KKR vs DC, Today's Match Preview: Another mouth-watering clash awaits the fans of IPL 2019 as Kolkata Knight Riders will take on Delhi Capitals in the 26th match of the tournament. Dinesh Karthik-led side suffered a massive defeat in the hands of Chennai Super Kings, losing the game by 7 wickets. Karthik, however, was unperturbed by the loss. He mentioned at the end of the game that the team had been playing good cricket and the loss was a result of the side playing back-to-back games and that the team will be back to winning ways soon. However, the two-time IPL champions need not get carried away.  In Capitals, they have a much-improved team, who has had a roller-coaster ride so far in the tournament but posses the capability to beat any side on a given day.

Capitals' biggest challenge would be to stop the onslaught of Andre Russell, who went berserk the last time the two teams met in the competition. Not to forget, the first clash between the two teams was decided through a Super Over. KKR choked in that over but would make sure that they don't let the match slip away from their stranglehold this time around.

Delhi Capitals Team 2019 Players list: Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer(c), Colin Ingram, Rishabh Pant (w), Chris Morris, Axar Patel, Rahul Tewatia, Kagiso Rabada, Ishant Sharma, Sandeep Lamichhane, Hanuma Vihari, Colin Munro, Ankush Bains, Harshal Patel, Manjot Kalra, Keemo Paul, Sherfane Rutherford, Jalaj Saxena, Amit Mishra, Trent Boult, Avesh Khan, Nathu Singh, Bandaru Ayyappa
