Narine, who became the first overseas spinner to take 100 IPL wickets, took three wickets for 18 runs in three overs, while Yadav finished with figures of three for 32 in 3.2 overs. And in the third, young pacer Mavi castled Gautam Gambhir for his maiden wicket and reduced Daredevils to 24/3 in three overs.

Well, Delhi Daredevil had a bad start and none of its batsmen stood for long other than Rishabh Pant (43) and Glenn Maxwell (47).

But Kolkata came back hard and Delhi lost its last seven wickets for 43 runs in 5.5 overs. However, the shining star of KKR Kuldeep Yadav and Sunil Narine took 3 wickets each and snatched the match from the DD's jaw.
