IPL 11: R trio powers KKR to post 200 against DD

Kolkata: The insane hitting of 'R' trio (Robin Uthappa, Andre Russell and Nitish Rana) pushed Kolkata Knight Riders to a mammoth 200-run total against Delhi Daredevils in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 11 match at the Eden Gardens here on Monday.

After being put to bat, KKR lost its first in the form of Sunil Narine (1) who failed to create any impact.

Then, Chris Lynn and Robin Uthappa shared a healthy partnership for the second wicket. Uthappa remained fiery througout his 35-run knock. He hit two fours and three sixes in his 19-ball inning.

The young Nitish Rana was the major charm for KKR batting. He was the top-scorer for the side with 35-ball 59-run knock. His inning was laced with five fours and four sixes.

Russell ended things for KKR on a high note with his scintillating 41-run kock which came in just 12 deliveries. He never thought of hitting a boundary and dealt in sixes only. Russell clobbered 6-sixes in his breathtaking inning.

For DD, Rahul Tewatia was the leading wicket-taker with 3/18 bowling figures.
