Kolkata Knight Riders won by 59 runs
PLAYER OF THE MATCH
Delhi have lost their second game on the bounce. And they still have MI and RCB to come. Definite problems to address in that batting department. Meanwhile, we have the clash between Kings XI and Sunrisers up next -- neither of whom will be all that thrilled with Kolkata's win. You can head over to that tab for all the coverage. That's it from us here. it's a goodbye from Sagar Chawla on behalf of Nikhil Jadhav, Pradeep Krishnamurthy, Sriram, Kumar Abhisekh Das and Mukesh.
Varun Chakravarthy, Man of the Match - This is a surreal moment for me because I didn't get wickets in the last few games, I wanted to get one or two wickets today, but I ended up with five. I enjoyed Shreyas Iyer's wicket the most. I was told I would be bowling from the shorter end, so I had to attack the stumps. Want to thank my mother, Hema Malini, father Vinod Chakravarthy and my fiancee Neha, the team physios, DK bhai and Abhishek Nayar for their support. I pretty much started my spin bowling in 2018, that's when I got my breakthrough in TNPL, it's been high and lows - last year, I didn't get many chances and I injured myself, I'm grateful for making a comeback this year. I have been working hard, but the motivation and faith has come from a lot of people around me. Around 2015, when I was not making a lot of money (the switch from being an architect to becoming a cricketer), was freelancing and wasn't able to meet my needs, I thought I would do something different, that's when I turned to cricket. I still do it, I like that as well (being an architect)
Shreyas Iyer | DC Captain: Looking at the start we got, we could've put more pressure on them and we could've gone more attacking but the way they played in between especially Sunil Narine coming and changing the momentum towards them. I think that was the changing point and also we could've bowled in perfect areas, we couldn't execute our plans but yeah, we need to come back stronger and will take the blow on our chin. They chose the bowlers really well, knew which bowlers they would target and also the way they executed the plans was pretty much amazing. They were really good in shot selections and outplayed us in all the departments. So, kudos to their approach and their mindset. I feel it's really important that you get off to an amazing start when you are chasing a total in excess of 190, need 50 runs at least in the first 6 overs. Losing two wickets put a lot of pressure on the batsmen coming behind but you can't give that as a reason. We need to be strong in our mind and play with freedom, not have a survival mindset. We are disappointed with the loss but I'm glad it's happening at this point of time because there is a lot of learning from this game and when you go back and do your homework again, it's important that you come up with a fresh mind and see to it that your work is done precisely.
Stat - That is the first outright win for a side batting first since Delhi Capitals' 13-run win against Rajasthan Royals in Dubai on 14 Oct.
