KKR 157-4 (16 ovs) vs Delhi | Scorecard


Time for the Andre Russell show!

Shami tries a short ball as Russell slashes it fine on the off-side for a six. He tries to club the next ball over midwicket but skies it high on the leg side as Roy rushes in from long-on but fails to hold on to the catch.

Shami then pitches it up and Russell blasts it straight down the ground over long-off for a six.

The last ball is short and Russell seems to be waiting for it as he pulls it over midwicket for the third six of the over.

Shami goes for 22 runs in the over after giving away just 11 in his first two, with KKR reaching 145 for four in 15 overs.

Russell starting off with a blast, smashing 21 from five balls, at a strike rate of more than 400.

At the other end, Rana is also going strong. In the next over, he pulls a short ball from Morris over midwicket for a six.

The next ball is short and slanting across him as Rana tries the ramp shot but is beaten.

Morris tries the slower bouncer as Rana makes room and carves it over point for another four.

Rana gets an inside edge off the next ball for a single to take his score to 48 from 27 balls.

Russell looks to steer the next ball fine but can't beat the fielder at short third before he swings hard again and gets a single off the miscue.
