Ahmedabad: Opener Prithvi Shaw produced a fine 82-run knock  as Delhi Capitals (DC) defeated Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) by seven wickets in an Indian Premier League (IPL) match here at the Narendra Modi Stadium on Thursday night.

Chasing 155 runs, DC reached their target with 21 balls to spare. SHikhar Dhawan scored 46 runs.

For KKR, pacer Pat Cummins took 3/24.

Earlier, Andre Russell’s 27-ball unbeaten 45 helped Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) score 154/6 in 20 overs against Delhi Capitals (DC).

KKR were in danger of getting restricted to a below-par total. They were 109 for six in 16.2 overs. However, Russell’s innings, comprising four sixes and two fours, took the team through to a total with which they can compete.

The Kolkata franchise began well, reaching 73 for two after 10 overs. The platform was set for the batsmen to score big. However, two quick wickets in the 11th over, bowled by spinner Lalit Yadav, pegged them back.

A couple of overs later, opener Shubman Gill followed for 43 (38 balls).

Russell and Kartik then set about resurrecting the innings before the West Indian opened up.

He took 11 runs off the 18th over bowled by Avesh Khan, 18 runs in the 19th bowled by Kagiso Rabada and 13 in the 20th bowled by Avesh.
