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.

TOSS: Delhi opt to bowl
Gautam Gambhir wins the toss at Eden Gardens and he has elected to bowl against Kolkata Knight Riders. Gambhir says the wicket has changed at Eden and it would be better to bowl and see what the target it
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.
