Delhi 99-5 (10 ovs) vs KKR 200-9 | Scorecard

Leg-spinner Chawla comes into the attack. Pant plays the inside out lofted shot over the covers for a six and then cuts the next ball for a four followed by three singles to get 13 from the over.

Pacer Tom Curran is brought into the attack as he replaces Narine.

He starts with a wide half-volley which Pant drills through the covers for a four and two balls later Maxwell deposits a short ball over the fine leg fence for a six.

Left-arm chinaman spinner Kuldeep Yadav is brought into the attack. Maxwell plays the reverse sweep off the first ball for a four before he takes one.

Pant then misses out on a short ball as he pulls it straight into the hands of Chawla at deep midwicket to perish for 43.

A surprise move by Delhi as Rahul Tewatia is promoted to No. 6, who gets off the mark with a single.

Curran drops short as Maxwell helps it over the fine leg fence for a six before he takes one.

Curran then cripples Delhi further with the wicket of Tewatia, who chips it straight to Russell at short cover to perish for one.

Delhi have maintained the run rate, even though they have lost wickets regularly to reach 99 for five in 10 overs. They need another 102 runs from 60 balls for victory.

Maxwell has stroked his way to 33 from 17 balls but he will need support from the other end.
