IPL 2017: Clinical Kolkata Docile Delhi By Seven Wickets

Kolkata Knight Riders [KKR] captain Gautam Gambhir and Robin Uthappa's pyrotechnics with the bat handed Rahul Dravid team Delhi Daredevils a seven-wicket defeat and pushed them on the verge of elimination in the Indian Premier League [IPL] on Friday.

This was Delhi Daredevils fourth loss on the trot. Chasing a modest 161, Kolkata were nine for one in the second over, but wicket-keeper batsman Robin Uthappa (59 from 33 balls) and skipper Gambhir put together a 108-run partnership off just 66 balls to lay the foundation. After Uthappa was run out, the former Delhi Daredevils batsman [Gambhir] held fort and led the team from the front with an unbeaten 71 from 52 balls (11x4) to complete the chase with 22 balls to unused. He also completed 6000 runs in T20 cricket.
