Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) posted a mammoth total of 200 against Delhi Daredevils(DD) in the match 13 of the Vivo IPL 2018. Sunil Narine opened the batting but failed to deliver today getting out for one. Chris Lynn was also finding it hard to find the middle of the bat. It was Nitesh Rana (59), Andre Russell (41) and Robin Uthappa (35) who set the tome for KKR. Rahul Tewatia bowled a brilliant last over conceding only one run and taking three wickets.

DD had a poor start to the chase losing three wickets the first three overs. Rishabh Pant and Glenn Maxwell added 52 for the fourth wicket. At one point DD were going 10 per over but the Karthik shuffled his bowlers well to get the wickets. Eventually DD were bowled out for 129 under 15 overs. Meanwhile, Narine became the first foreign spinner to pick 100 IPL wickets.
