KKR strikes early, twice

press club of india, Indian Tehalka News

Both teams, which look great on paper, will be searching for some consistency ahead of playoffs

DD 32/3 after 5 overs (K Nair 15 off 11 | S Billings 0 off 0)

Narine, yet another Windian, comes in now, and the pacers breathe a sigh of relief. Respite from the sun as well as Samson. And Narine does send Samson (15 from 15) back LBW on the final ball.

DD 30/2 after 4 overs (K Nair 14 off 8 | S Samson 12 off 12)

Holder seemed to have found some stability again as he starts off with a much better line and length. But Nair sends the final ball for four through Fine-leg.

DD 23/2 after 3 overs (K Nair 10 off 7 | S Samson 11 off 7)

Now Russell is infected by Holder’s poor lines. Feed Kuldeep Nair on his legs and he will send it racing through Square-leg for four.

DD 13/2 after 2 overs (K Nair 1 off 2 | S Samson 10 off 6)

Jason Holder begins with a poor over and somewhat eases the pressure that his West Indian teammate Russell had built up with the first-over strikes. His radar all awry, he gifts extras and a couple of fours to Sanju Samson through the off-side.

DD 2/2 after 1 over (K Nair 0 off 1 | S Samson 1 off 1)

Andre Russell strikes really early, in the very first over, and sends back both DD’s openers — Shreyas Iyer (0 from 1) with straight and full delivery that the pads prevent from smashing the wickets, and Quinton de Kock (1 from 3), who miscues a pull shot and is caught at Square-leg.

Kolkata Knight Riders win the toss and Gautam Gambhir decides to have a bowl on a hot Delhi afternoon. If it rains sixes, it wouldn’t bring any cooling relief to the players.
