Although Rishabh Pant and Glenn Maxwell tried to restart the run chase, it was becoming too late for the visitors. Knowing that the target was not an easy one, Pant ensured that the required run rate did not go over 11 but in his hurry to keep the scoreboard ticking, he found Chawla at deep midwicket to fall seven runs short of a half century.

WICKET! Shivam Mavi gets the breakthrough. A sharp glove-work from skipper Dinesh Karthik saw in-form Jason Roy stumped off Chawla in the first over.

After the departure of Russell and Rana, wrist spinner Rahul Tewatia (3/18) took three wickets in the last over, but the duos 61-run partnership from 22 balls was enough to take them to 200. Trent Boult with the old fashioned yorker that disturbs the timber. Dinesh Karthik came and scored a breezy 19 before Andre Russell got stuck into the DD bowling attack.

WICKET! Chris Lynn has to go back, Shami with the wicket. "Today I had made a decision to play till the end and waited for the spinners to come into action as spin bowling is an easy option for me to play" Rana said at the post-match press conference. Kolkata Knight Riders beat Delhi Daredevils by 71 runs with 34 balls remaining. And Kolkata Knight Riders won by 71 runs.
