DC beat KKR by 4 wickets in a low-scoring match with 4 balls remaining. In this low-scoring match, KKR came to bat first and scored only 127 runs in 20 overs. DC chased this target while struggling in front of KKR spinners.
The match started a bit late because of the rain and that’s why the wicket got slower and started supporting spinners. KKR came to bat first but they didn’t get a good start, they lost 5 wickets in the 11th over of the innings where the score was just 64. Only Jason Roy was looking stable but he also got out after scoring 43 runs. At some point, it seems that KKR will fall below 100 runs. But Russel gave some chargeback and brought his team to the score of 127 runs.
When DC came to bat, it looked like they would chase this target in 15 overs. Warner was in good form, he gave a solid start that DC was expecting from him. The score was 60 runs in 7 overs. Warner was attacking Sunil Narine to not let him settle down.
But when Warner got out, KKR started backing themselves and brought them into the match. It was a slow wicket, Varun Chakravarthy, Anukul Roy, and Nitish Rana gave a great bowling performance. This trip took 2-2 wickets and brought DC batters on the back foot.
However, Axar wasn’t playing attacking shots, he was just rotating strikes to keep the flow of the scoreboard running. 6 runs were required in the final over, Axar scored those runs comfortably and made his team win their first match of this IPL. No one thought that the match would come to this stage. But KKR bowlers did their job very well but unfortunately, they didn’t have a big score to defend and they lost this match.
