Delhi marks historic win, beat KKR by 55 runs

Prithvi Shaw

After several losses in the previous matches, finally Delhi Daredevils came out with flying colours on Friday match, played at Feroz Shah Kotla stadium against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) here.

Gambhir, who led SRK's Kolkata Knight Riders to two IPL titles, returned to his home team as the captain. Gautam Gambhir stepped down from his role of captain prior to the match, abd after the toss, new captain Shreyas Iyer announced that he won't be a part of the Playing XI.

The result was a big one for Delhi, picking up just their second win of the season and moving off the bottom of the table.

Shreyas Iyer, who took over as captain from Gambhir, said he was confident of leading the side out of rut with support from seniors like Gambhir and other coaching staff, including the legendary former Australian captain Ponting. It also allowed batsmen like Iyer and Glenn Maxwell to take a bit of time before teeing off.

The India worldwide made his fifty off 29 deliveries before an electrifying partnership with Glenn Maxwell (27) added 73 runs from just 32 balls, helping get Delhi - who announced Junior Dala has replaced the injured Chris Morris in their squad for the remainder of the season - out of sight.

In reply, KKR were off to a forgettable start, losing four wickets for just 46 runs in the powerplay.

Even Trent Boult, the current purple cap holder, said that the captaincy change worked brilliantly for them and it was good as a bowler to see some runs being put on the board by the batting unit. Shubhman Gill contributed 37 runs in 29 balls with the help of three fours and a six.

Shaw's fifty meant that he joined Sanju Samson in becoming the youngest batsman to score a half-century in the IPL at an age of 18 years and 169 days, with Samson reaching the milestone in 2013.

Brief scores: Delhi Daredevils 219/4 (Shreyas Iyer 93 not out, Prithvi Shaw 62, Colin Munro 33; Andre Russell 1/28) vs Kolkata Knight Riders. Skipper Dinesh Karthik would be left to rue his call. "But he's a human, and we need to raise our hands and say we didn't play well today".

"I am really loving the responsibility that they have given me and the faith that they showed in me". Maxwell grabbed his second wicket of the night - that of Piyush Chawla (2) - but Mitchell Johnson (12*) and Kuldeep Yadav (7*) ensured KKR didn't get bowled out.

In reply, KKR were reeling at 77-5 before Andre Russell and Shubman Gill combined to stitch a 65-runs stand.

In their last outing against the Kings XI Punjab, Delhi looked rejuvenated as their bowlers choked the mighty KXIP batting attack and restricted them to 143 runs.
