KKR 123-4 (14 ovs) vs Delhi | Scorecard

Shami nearly strikes again in his second over. A quick delivery which beats Karthik for pace and strikes him on the pads as the KKR skipper is given out leg before wicket.

But he immediately takes the DRS and rightly so as the Ultra Edge shows that Karthik had got the edge before the ball hits the pads.

He gets a leading edge off the next ball which flies through the gap on the off-side for two runs followed by singles off the next four balls.

Morris comes into the attack as Karthik whips the second ball over midwicket for a four and repeats it again off the next ball for the same result.

However, he perishes for 19 attempting a similar shot as Delhi get a fielder at that position, who takes a simple catch at deep midwicket.

The trap was perfectly set for Karthik and he fell right into it after being carried away following a couple of boundaries.

Rana slams the next ball over long-on for a six and keeps strike with one from the last ball.
