Kolkata Knight Riders beat Delhi Daredevils by an impressive six wickets in the opening match of the IPL season.
Kolkata Knight Riders and Delhi Daredevils played out a tremendous match to open the 2013 Indian Premier League season.
The game was won by KKR by an impressive six wickets, and after putting DD in to bat, they bowled them out in impressive style for 128 despite Mahela Jayawardene’s valiant – albeit cautious – knock for 66.
The Knight Riders beat that total for the loss of just four batsmen, and at lightning quick pace.
They took just 18.4 overs to get the 129 they needed to claim victory, and captain Gautam Gambhir led the way for Kolkata with an aggressive and quick 43.
