IPL Score KKR vs DD: Kolkata Knight Riders beat Delhi Daredevils by 71 runs after bundling them out for 129. Chasing a target of 201 runs, DD never looked in control after losing three early wickets in the start of the chase. Rishabh Pant and Glenn Maxwell did provide the visiting team with resistance as the two batsmen stitched a partnership of over 50 runs for the fourth wicket but the departure of Pant saw a fall of wickets in quick succession. KKR spinner Sunil Narine scalped his 100th IPL wicket when he cleaned up Chris Morris. Earlier, riding on a half-century from Nitish Rana and a thunderous batting display from Andre Russell, KKR posted 200/9 in 20 overs. KKR have now moved up to the second spot in the points table.

Ganmbhir insists on focusing on upcoming games

"We have to give it to KKR, they played really well. One stage we thought they couldn't get 170-175 but then getting to 200 was a good effort by them. We knew it was going to be a stiff chase as they have three quality spinners. I thought we tried our level best but we couldn't execute the plans well. Someone like Russell when he starts to take on the bowlers it's difficult to contain him. We even tried bowling from round the wicket. We had difficult plans but it was difficult to execute the plans. Lot of balls we bowled into his radar. It's important for us to win the games at home, there are about 5 of them we're playing at home. The next game is important for us if we can take a win. If we get a win in Bangalore the confidence will be better. We still need to win 10 games, there are lot of games," Gambhir said.

dinesh karthik ipl IPL Live Score KKR vs DD: Kolkata take on Delhi at Eden Gardens. (PTI Photo) In match 13 of the Indian Premier League, Kolkata Knight Riders face a stern test as they take on a resurgent Delhi Daredevils at home. While the limelight will be on Gautam Gambhir's return to Eden Gardens, both teams will know the importance of securing a win in this game as it gives them a huge push for the race to the top four. Despite changing the batting order against Sunrisers Hyderabad, success eluded Dinesh Karthik and co and hence finding the balance in the batting order will be crucial for KKR in this contest. On the other hand, Delhi returned to winning ways after chasing down 194 against Mumbai Indians. Their powerful batting unit clicked together and gave a glimpse of their how dangerous they can be. Hence, if they can build on the confidence gained from the previous result then there is no reason why DD can't make it two wins in two matches. The battle between DD's attacking batting against KKR's spinners will be the contest to watch out for.
