4th Over – Shikhar Dhawan survives LBW appeal. KKR use review but it is the umpire’s call. 7 runs from the over with a boundary from Shikhar Dhawan.

3rd Over – Warrier to continue from the other end. Dhawan in no mood to stop, hits him for two boundaries. 10 runs from the over.

2nd Over – Tim Southee bowls his first over for KKR, Dhawan hits him for a boundary. Just 7 runs from the over.

1st Over – Sandeep Warrier to open the bowling for KKR. Just 5 runs from the over with Dhawan smashing him for a four on a full toss ball.

Playing XI 

Delhi Capitals (Playing XI): Shikhar Dhawan, Steven Smith, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant(w/c), Shimron Hetmyer, Lalit Yadav, Axar Patel, Ravichandran Ashwin, Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje, Avesh Khan

Both team captains at the toss

Rishabh Pant | DC captain: We were looking to bat first anyway. We don’t really know what the conditions are like. 150-160 should be good since the wicket looks slow. We are looking to take one match at a time, and hope we can win this game and qualify for the playoffs for sure. Prithvi is injured and Steve Smith comes in, that’s the only change.

Eoin Morgan | KKR captain: We’re bowling first. I don’t know what the wicket will be like, but it’s not a belter, and not too bad, so somewhere in between. Setting a score might be a challenge, so we’ll try bowling. As a team, we are focused on taking it game by game. We have played good cricket in the second half and we have gone up from second-last position and we want to continue that performance. My performance has been a roller-coaster, so as long as the team is doing well. Sandeep Warrier comes in for Prasidh Krishna and Southee comes in for Andre Russell.
