.
Lockie Ferguson to Ravichandran Ashwin. Back of a length, outside off stump moves in front cutting, bottom edge to short third man for no runs, fielded by Narine. KKR win by 59 runs. DC have only managed to make for the loss of wickets after 20 overs. Shreyas Iyer top scored with 47 and Pant made 27. None of the other batsmen really got going and the target was just too big. For KKR, Varun Chakravarthy has been the star of the second innings by picking up the first five-fer of this season. Pat Cummins picked up three wickets and Lockie Ferguson picked up one wicket. Excellent performance by KKR with the bat and the ball today, a truly deserved win. Varun Chakravarthy has been adjudged as the man of the match for his top performance with the ball. Join us for the next match tonight played between Punjab and Hyderabad. Until then, cheers.
