Manish Pandey is the Man of the Match for his scintillating innings of 69 not out, which guided KKR to a memorable victory.

Breathless stuff in the end. Delhi tried their best, and gave KKR some heart-stopping moments. Was a surprise to see Mishra given the ball in the last over, but clearly Zaheer had faith on the leg-spinner's guile. Not wrong in doing that, but there is always the threat of a leg-spinner going the distance when the batting team has to throw their bat at everything, as much as there is a chance of him taking wickets. A brilliant away-spinning delivery totally foxed Chris Woakes, but what an innings by Manish Pandey. Kept his cool under pressure and got a six when he simply had to. Has to be the Man of the Match surely. Another good win for KKR and with that they go to the top of the table. What's good for them now is that they were stretched by Delhi, and won a tough game. Clearly, have been the most dominant outfit in the early part of the league, along with Mumbai Indians.

After 20 overs,Kolkata Knight Riders 169/6 ( Manish Pandey 69 , Sunil Narine 1)

Mishra into the attack for the final over, and he deceives Woakes with a wrong 'un! Starts off with a dot ball! Stumping chance in the second delivery after pitching it well outside Woakes's off, drawing him into the shot. He misses, and replays confirm his dismissal with his foot outside the crease as Pant disturbs the bails. Narine flicks the third ball towards fine-leg for a single, getting Pandey back on strike. SIX! Wide outside off, Pandey connects in his slog down towards long-on beautifully, and sending the ball over the fielder! Pandey steers the fifth ball towards the wide long-off boundary, and collects two runs to guide his team home! 


Kolkata Knight Riders win by four wickets, and move to the top of the points table!

OUT! Woakes is stumped with his foot well outside the crease! What an over this is turning out to be for Mishra! More importantly, we have two dot balls at the start of the final over! KKR 160/6

After 19 overs,Kolkata Knight Riders 160/5 ( Manish Pandey 61 , Chris Woakes 3)

Morris to bowl the crucial penultimate over. Outstanding work by Superman Samson at long-on, saving four runs for the hosts after Pandey looks to clear the boundary. Absolutely stunning! Quick double off the next ball, thanks to some lightning quick running between the wickets by Pandey and new batsman Woakes, who guides the fifth ball towards the leg side for a single. An absolute stunner by Morris to end the over, with the yorker beating Pandey's defence completely. And we're set for an exciting final over! Will we witness the first super over of this tournament? Let's find out! 


Kolkata Knight Riders need 9 off 6 balls.

After 18 overs,Kolkata Knight Riders 153/5 ( Manish Pandey 56 , Chris Woakes 1)

Cummins to bowl the 18th over. Suryakumar tries to ramp the first shot of the over towards fine third-man, though there is a fielder stationed there to save three runs for the side. Wide called for height in the third ball of the over. Good running between the wickets by the two next ball. Cummins gives Delhi a glimmer of hope in the penultimate delivery, with Suryakumar mis-hitting a full delivery straight to Zaheer at mid-off. Woakes walks out, and starts off with a quick single to retain the strike for the next over 


Kolkata Knight Riders need 16 off 12 balls. 

Apr 17, 2017 - 19:28 (IST)

22 runs were needed at the start of the 18th over. It is advantage KKR, but one tight over can tilt it all in Delhi's favour. And who better to bowl at the 'death' than Pat Cummins? An important wicket for Cummins and Delhi as Sryakumar Yadav hits one into Zaheer's lap at mid off. Some hope for Delhi. Who would bowl 19 and 20 though? Morris, Mathews, Mishra, Shami all have overs left. Morris and Shami, you feel, it would be.

Apr 17, 2017 - 19:27 (IST)

OUT! A glimmer of hope for Delhi! Suryakumar Yadav looks to loft the ball down the ground, but doesn't get the distance, and ends up getting caught by Zaheer at mid-off. KKR 152/5

Preview: Beaming with confidence after winning two matches on the trot, a resurgent Delhi Daredevils will be eager to keep the momentum going when they take on two-time Indian Premier League (IPL) champions Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) at the Feroz Shah Kotla in New Delhi on Monday.

Delhi overcame their opening loss to Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) with two huge back-to-back victories -- 97-run win over Rising Pune Supergiant and then Saturday's 51-run win over Kings XI Punjab at home.

Kolkata, on the other hand, have won three out of their four encounters so far, and will aim to consolidate their stay atop the points table.

Going into Monday's first double header, the match promises to be an exciting contest between third-placed Delhi's famed pace battery and KKR's top order batting.

With the likes of South African quick Kasigo Rabada and India's Mohammed Shami still warming the bench, Delhi can boast of a bowling line-up which can demolish any side on their day.

On Saturday, Delhi seized the momentum early on with three early wickets as Punjab struggled to get anywhere closer to the massive total of 188/6 posted by the home side.

The all-rounder duo of South Africa's Chris Morris and New Zealand's Corey Anderson have been the Zaheer Khan-led Delhi's main weapons -- be it slogging lower down the order or getting the important breakthroughs with the ball.

While Morris fired an eight-ball 16 and returned with figures of 3/23, Anderson came up with a breezy 22-ball unbeaten 39 besides taking one wicket.

Delhi's top-order batting also clicked to a great extent with openers Sanju Samson and top-scorer Sam Billings setting the tone with a half century stand.

The return of Shreyas Iyer consolidated the middle order and he along with Rishabh Pant can take the bowlers to the cleaners with ease. Karun Nair will also be hoping to get back his mojo back.

Delhi's spin duo of Amit Mishra and Shahbaz Nadeem have consistently been among the wickets, besides putting the brakes on the scoring rate in the middle overs.

On the other hand, KKR can take a lot of input on the nature of wicket from their Delhi-born captain Gautam Gambhir, who has been in prime form in the tournament so far.

After a rare failure by the top order, KKR's middle order stood up on Saturday with Robin Uthappa slamming a 39-ball 68 and Manish Pandey scoring a 35-ball 46 to guide the team to a 17-run win over Sunrisers Hyderabad.

With the likes of West Indian mystery spinner Sunil Narine, India's Kuldeep Yadav, Piyush Chawla, Umesh Yadav and Trent Boult in their ranks, the visitors will certainly be a test for the relatively young Delhi batting line-up.

Squads:

Delhi Daredevils: Zaheer Khan (c), Mohammad Shami, Shahbaz Nadeem, Jayant Yadav, Amit Mishra, Shreyas Iyer, Sanju Samson, Karun Nair, Rishabh Pant (WK), Chama Milind, Khaleel Ahmed, Pratyush Singh, Murugan Ashwin, Aditya Tare, Shashank Singh, Ankit Bawane, Navdeep Saini, Corey Anderson, Angelo Mathews, Pat Cummins, Kagiso Rabada, Chris Morris, Carlos Brathwaite and Sam Billings.

Kolkata Knight Riders: Gautam Gambhir (c), Sunil Narine, Kuldeep Yadav, Manish Pandey, Suryakumar Yadav, Piyush Chawla, Robin Uthappa (WK), Shakib Al Hasan, Chris Lynn, Umesh Yadav, Yusuf Pathan, Sheldon Jackson, Ankit Singh Rajpoot, Trent Boult, Chris Woakes, Rishi Dhawan, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Rovman Powell, R Sanjay Yadav, Ishank Jaggi, Darren Bravo, Sayan Ghosh, Colin de Grandhomme.
