Apr 19, 2014
At the end of the 10th over, Kolkata Knight Riders are placed at 63 for the loss of two wickets against Delhi Daredevils in their IPL 2014 encounter at Dubai. Having lost the two crucial wickets of Gautam Gambhir and Jacques Kallis early in the innings, KKR have steadied their ship against a strong pace performance by the DD in their IPL 2014 encounter at Dubai. Manish Pandey and Robin Uthappa have scrapped along till now, and will be eager to up their scoring rate.
The two batsmen have brought up their fifty partnership. Uthappa survived a spill by Jaydev Unadkat, while Pandey has not shown the same form he had in the first match till now.
Earlier in the innings, DD started off well against KKR with Mohammed Shami dismissing Jacques Kallis for a golden duck in the sixth match of the Indian Premier League 2014 in Dubai. Nathan Coulter-Nile struck in his first over from the other end as well removing Gautam Gambhir.
Shami started off with a wide and then delivered a beautiful delivery which forced Kallis to play tentatively and the edge flew to Ross Taylor standing at second slip. Coulter0Nile struck in he next over when a legslip was placed deliberately and Gambhir flicked straight to him.
Though Delhi picked two quick wickets but Shami in particular was erratic delivering wides after wides. KKR skipper Gambhir had won the toss and put Delhi in to bowl.
