KKR beats Daredevils in the IPL6 opener
Kolkata Knight Riders have defeated Delhi Daredevils by six wickets with eight balls to spare. KKR owner Shah Rukh Khan gets on top of a railing to celebrate his team’s victory. With this win, the reigning champions looks in no mood to play around while eyeing their second consecutive title this year.
KKR skipper Gautam Gambhir was the highest run-scorer for his team with a match-winning knock of 42 runs. Jacques Kallis and Manoj Tiwary also chipped in with a knock of 23 runs respectively. Sunil Narine(4) was the pick of KKR bowlers alongside Brett Lee(2), Rajat Bhatia(2) and Lakshmipathy Balaji(1) against Delhi Daredevils. Sunil Narine’s 4/13 also earned him the Man of the Match award.
For Delhi, skipper Mahela Jayawardene slammed a scintillating knock of 66 runs but couldn’t help his team win the IPL opener. Shahbaz Nadeem took two wickets while Ashish Nehra and Johan Botha got one wicket a piece.
