KKR 188-5 (18 ovs) vs Delhi | Scorecard

Shami comes under more attack in his final over. Russell continues his attack as he slashes the pacer square on the off-side for a four.

He keeps out a yorker for a single before Rana also takes one.

Russell ends the over in perfect style with back to back sixes. He swings the fifth ball over midwicket and looks to have mishit the last ball but it still carries over the straight boundary for another six.

Shami has conceded 42 runs from his last two overs to finish with one for 53 in four overs.

Boult comes back into the attack. Rana takes a single from the first ball to race to his fifty, from just 30 balls.

Boult then brings Delhi some relief with the wicket of the dangerous Russell, who is beaten by the yorker and bowled after a swashbuckling innings of 41 from 12 balls, having hit six sixes.

Russell in the company of Rana turned the KKR innings on it's head, as they blasted 61 runs from just 22 balls for the fifth wicket.

Under-19 star batsman Shubman Gill gets off the mark in some style, as he pulls a short ball from Boult through midwicket for a four.

Two balls later, Rana makes room and steers the yorker past the fielder at short thirdman for another four as Boult goes for 11 in his final over.
