IPL 2016: Kolkata Knight Riders crush Delhi Daredevils

Kolkata Knight Riders excelled in everything right in their IPL opener at Eden Gardens on Sunday, right from winning the toss to bowling out Delhi Daredevils in 17.4 overs to chasing their target for the loss of one wicket. Daredevils batting order struggled after being given first use of a sluggish surface and the result was a total of 98. KKR knocked off the target in 14.1 overs.

Gautam Gambhir's decision to field on a turning surface was vindicated early with Andre Russell grabbing three wickets in three overs. The spin pair of Brad Hogg and Piyush Chawla ensured there was no recovery. Quinton de Kock's 17 was the highest score of the innings. Tellingly, Hogg and Chawla bowled 32 dot balls. Hogg, aged 45, underlined his worth as a T20 force with 3/19 in four overs.
