Kolkata Knight Riders skipper Gautam Gambhir expresses relief at beating Delhi Daredevils in their opening IPL match.
Gautam Gambhir, captain of the Kolkata Knight Riders, is relieved after beating Delhi Daredevils by six wickets in the first match of the 2013 IPL.
Gambhir was particularly happy with his bowling attack after Kolkata snatched all 10 of the Daredevils’ wickets before they could complete their 20 overs.
Knight Riders paceman Brett Lee also claimed the scalp of Delhi opener Unmukt Chand with the first ball of the tournament.
It is the first time Kolkata have won their opening match of the IPL since Gambhir took the helm in 2012 and it is the perfect start as they look to defend their title.
