He had so many options under his sleeve and unsettled the middle order of Delhi completely.

Phil Salt

Phil Salt on the run chase of 254 was in a hurry and he made sure that this game doesn't go too far.

Axar Patel

In IPL Match 47 Axar Patel was the only positive for Delhi who bowled really well against these power striker's. Initially when he came onto bowl after the powerplay got the wicket of Sunil Narine in his first over which kinda brought them back in the contest.

The bowlers did not support him much and this was the major reason that rum flow was never stopped from the other end.

He probably came to bowl a bit late considering the nature of wicket so Pant’s captaincy could be questioned as well in terms of utilizing his resources.

The left arm spinner ended with the figures of 25 for two in a four overs spell which was quite superb under the circumstances.

IPL Match 47: KKR vs DC Report

IPL Match 47 KKR vs DC brought KKR back on the winning ways and today the wicket was very unlike from the normal Eden Gardens track.

Delhi after consecutive victories had to bow down in front of the brilliance of Varun Chakravarthy and Vabhav Aroro, both of them bowled brilliantly.

Pant and his men couldn't really identify the ideal score on the surface and kept playing attacking shots which became a reason for their low score eventually as they lost a lot of wickets in between.

Delhi is very much out of the race for the playoffs whereas KKR announced their comeback in a grand way as they progressed further in the race of the top four.

They need to address their bowling performance specially the effort from their pacers who have been below par throughout the IPL so far

It was a clinical performance from the Men in Purple both with the bat and ball and this win would give them loads of confidence which would be reflected in the upcoming games as well.

They will try their best to fight for the second spot in the points table just behind Rajasthan so that they get two opportunities for making it to the final.
