Delhi Capitals looked to start their inning well, however, after Prithvi Shaw’s wicket in the 5th over, their inning didn’t really get going. The batsmen struggled to middle the ball and could ultimately score only 135 in their quota of 20 overs. In reply, KKR got off to a flyer and at the time of writing this article, they are way ahead in the game with 61 runs on the board in just 8 overs without losing a wicket.
