KKR win a thriller
A 110-run fourth wicket stand between Yusuf Pathan (59) and Manish Pandey (69*) gave the Kolkata Knight Riders a much deserved 4-wicket win over the Delhi Daredevils at the Ferozeshah Kotla on Monday, condemning Zaheer Khan's team to their first home loss of the season.
Manish Pandey was the star of the show as he kept his cool in a tense final over to take Kolkata over the line, staying unbeaten on 69.
Chasing a competitive target of 169 to win the match, the Knight Riders were off to the worst possible start as they lost their first three wickets for just 21 runs.
Earlier, the Delhi Daredevils decided to bat first and meandered to a total of 168 for 7.
