Delhi beat Kolkata in Super Over

30th March 2019, 22:24 by Neil Foster

Delhi Capitals and Kolkata Knight Riders both scored 185 in their 20 overs but Delhi won by three runs in the Super Over.

India Test batsman Prithvi Shaw clubbed 99 from 55 deliveries, with 12 fours and three sixes, as Delhi looked to chase 186 for victory but ended up on 185-6 after 20 overs.

Knight Riders were in trouble early in their innings, slipping to 61-5, but Dinesh Karthik, with 50 from 36 balls, and West Indies star Andre Russell, whose 62 from 28 deliveries included six sixes and four fours, propelled them to 185-8 from their 20 overs.

It did not look like being enough when Shaw was in full flow although once he was caught by Karthik off the bowling of Lockie Ferguson for 99, the game turned.

Delhi could not get over the line - despite 43 from skipper Shreyas Iyer - and the match was forced into a Super Over to decide the winner.

Capitals totalled 10-1 from their six balls with Prasidh Krishna bowling and it proved to be enough as Kagiso Rabada managed to restrict the KKR batsmen to 7-1.
