KKR 12-1 (3 ovs) vs Delhi | Scorecard

New Zealand left-arm pacer Trent Boult to open the bowling for Delhi and he will be up against the dangerous opening duo of Chris Lynn and Sunil Narine.

He makes the perfect start with a maiden over to Lynn, who plays a couple of drives in the over but is unable to breach the off-side field.

Chris Morris to bowl from the other end. Sunil Narine gets off the mark with a single on the leg side before Lynn looks to break the shackles after the previous maiden over.

He tries to heave Morris over the leg side but fails to make connection. Lynn tries the shot again but can't find the gap at midwicket before he finally makes some good connection.

He swings the length ball over midwicket as he gets off the mark with a six, from the ninth ball he faces.

Morris pitches it up further and gets the ball to move away as Lynn has another wild swing but is beaten and punches the last ball to mid-off for another dot.

Boult continues to keep things tight as after starting with a maiden, he follows it up with two dot balls to Narine.

He gets the wicket he so deserves as Narine tries to slash a short ball but gets an edge and is caught behind for one.

The ball kept rising after Narine got the edge off a short ball and wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant does well to gets his hands on it and an alert Glenn Maxwell in the slips takes the rebound.

Robin Uthappa gets off the mark with a single before Lynn blasts the last ball square on the off-side for a four.
