Axar Patel then tried to restore sanity before he was dismissed on 24 (17).

Before in the evening, Delhi Capitals’ decision to bowl first was right as they restrained Kolkata Knight Riders to 146/9 in 20 overs.

Bangladesh’s bowler Mustafizur Rahman also ended with 3 wickets from his 4 overs.

In the meantime, Nitish Rana was the remarkable performer for KKR with the bat, smashing 57 runs off 34 balls before he was sent off by Rahman in the final over.

Shreyas Iyer too contributed a crucial 42 off 37 runs in the middle. Andre Russell was removed on golden duck.
