    It is all over for DD as KKR win by 71 runs. Great bowling performance by the KKR bowlers tonight. DD have been bowled out for 129 under 15 overs. KKR register their second victory as DD lose another one.

    Delhi are 6 down now and the man hitting has been sent in the dug out by Kuldeep Yadav. Maxwell departs for 47 as Chris Morris walks in, he might be the last hope for DD but the target seems difficult with only 4 wickets in hand.

    50 partnership between Glenn Maxwell and Rishabh Pant and it has come at the time DD needs it. Pant has anchored the innings so far while Maxwell is producing a boundary in the middle.

  • 10:23 PM IST

    This is surely not the start DD has wished for. Whereas, good captaincy from Karthik he got Chawla in the first over, Russell in the second and Mavi in the third. The pace just went on increasing for DD to deal with and it paid for KKR.

    What a brilliant over by Rahul Tewatia he gave only one run and took 3 wickets. Sadly for him he did not get a chance to bowl the hat-trick ball. KKR would believe they have got a good total. Can DD chase down 201 to register their second win?

    Nitesh Rana is playing a great knock here and finding the gaps every now and then. With 2 overs to go will KKR go past RR’s highest total of 217?

  • 9:28 PM IST

    Shami only conceded 11 runs off his first two overs but went for 42 off his last two, courtesy ANDRE RUSSELL. He is smashing the ball to every corner of Eden Gardens. Meanwhile, Nitesh Rana completes his 50 as well.

  • 9:06 PM IST

    Karthik and Rana are looking good in the middle. With Karthik coming at No. 4 means that Shubman Gill will again have to wait for his chance down the order. 14 overs have already been bowled so we might see Russell coming in next.

  • 8:51 PM IST

    OUT! Another one tastes the dust and it is Chris Lynn this time. He was not looking comfortable from the start wanting to play every ball on the off side. Jason Roy makes the diving forward catch so easy. Captain Karthik in the middle.

  • 8:34 PM IST

    OUT! Uthappa was looking to play everything on the leg and was doing it successfully until the last over. Nadeem gets the better off him catching him off his own bowling.

  • 8:27 PM IST

    KKR were 12 for 1 after 3 overs but Uthappa and Lynn have sure the runs kept flowing from there on. Uthappa is seen in better touch than Lynn. The last 2 overs have gone for 31 runs.

  • 8:14 PM IST

    OUT! The wicket was around the corner even KKR knew it. What a brilliant spell Boult is bowling. He already bowled the first maiden over of IPL 2018. Half of the credit of the wicket goes to Glenn Maxwell who was very aware at the first slip.

  • 8:04 PM IST

    Maiden first over by Trent Boult. The pitch seems to assist the pace bowlers pretty well. Lynn struggling with his timing. Let’s see what can Narine do now.

  • 7:37 PM IST

    DD won the toss and opted to …………………..bowl (what did you expect?). Brett Lee in the pitch report talked about the green coverage on the pitch which will help the new bowlers with the bounce and there will be spin as well.

Gautam Gambhir, Dinesh Karthik, DD, KKR, IPL 2018 Kolkata Knight Riders(KKR) vs Delhi Daredevils(DD) latest updates: Hello and welcome to CricketCountry’s live coverage of the VIVO IPL 2018. We head to the Match No. 13 of the tournament between KKR vs DD at Eden Gardens, Kolkata. It would be a match of emotions for the current DD captain and former KKR captain Gautam Gambhir with match being played in Kolkata. Both the teams have won one out their three matches and will go all in for this one.  DD have just opened their account by successfully chasing 195 against Mumbai Indians(MI). Jason Roy who was got in for Colin Munro anchored the innings for DD in the last match scoring an unbeaten 91. His addition has been a big plus for the team. On the other hand, KKR have lost their last two consecutive games against Chennai Super Kings(CSK) and Sunrisers Hyderabad(SRH). In the last game of KKR they seemed to have a total mess with their batting line up. However, the positive they can take from that game is the form of Chris Lynn. He missed his half century by just one run but we all know how dangerous he can be if he keeps going. Will the youngsters Shubman Gill and Shivam Mavi get another opportunity in the playing XI?
