IPL 2022: KKR vs DC | Delhi Capitals return to winning ways by out-batting Knight Riders as Kuldeep moves to win

Kuldeep Yadav took four wickets after half-centuries from Shaw, Warner helped Delhi po sr 215/5

Score : DC 215 (5 wkts, 20 Overs) & KKR 171 (10 wkts, 19.4 Overs)

On a batting belter, KKR skipper Shreyas Iyer’s decision to put Delhi Capitals in backfired as they piled up 215 for five riding on half-centuries from Shaw (51 off 29 balls) and Warner (61 off 45 balls).

In reply, KKR were all-out for 171 in 19.4 overs and it was left-arm spinner Kuldeep Yadav’s evening at the Rabourne Stadium as he exacted sweet revenge against a franchise that didn’t treat him too well during his stint as his career came to a halt.

The scoreboard pressure was always telling and Kuldeep’s (4/35 in 4 overs), who is proving to be an asset for Capitals, decisively swung the match in the Rishabh Pant-led side’s favour, getting opposition skipper Shreyas Iyer (54 off 33 balls) stumped with a left-arm wrist spinner’s googly. Iyer had no clue as he came down the track and the ball turned away after pitching.

IPL 2022: RR vs LSG | Hetmyer, Chahal move Rajasthan Royals to three-run win over Lucknow Super Kings

First invited to bat, star West Indies batter Hetmyer scored an unbeaten 36-ball 59 to lift RR from 67 for four to 165 for six in 20 overs

SCORE :   RR  165 (6 wkts, 20 Overs) & LSG :  162 (For 8 wickets in 20 overs)

Shimron Hetmyer lived up to his ₹8.5 crore price tag with a six-hitting exhibition before Yuzvendra Chahal and Trent Bout displayed their wizardry with the ball as Rajasthan Royals outwitted Lucknow Super Kings by three runs in an IPL game in Mumbai on April 10.

Invited to bat, star West Indies batter Hetmyer smashed an unbeaten 36-ball 59 to lift RR from 67 for four to 165 for six in 20 overs.

Trent Boult (2/30) then struck twice in a sensational opening over, while Chahal (4/41) picked up four wickets to achieve the feat of claiming 150 IPL victims but Marcus Stoinis blasted two fours and four maximums in his unbeaten 38 off 17 balls to conjure up hopes of a turnaround.

But Kuldeep Sen, making his IPL debut, showed great nerves as he defended 15 runs in the last over as RR limited LSG to 162 for eight.

With this win, RR bounced back from their four wicket loss to RCB in the last match to take the top position in the IPL standings, while LSG slipped to fifth spot.
