Even though Kolkata were off to a slow start, a wonderful innings by Nitish Rana and a brilliant cameo from Andre Russell helped them reach a solid total of 200 by the end of the 20th over. The fans took to twitter to praise KKR as they started off with a maiden but went on to score 200 runs.
Life of every KKR fan!
Just checked the score and searching for Gambhir name then realized he is playing for Delhi...— Broken Cricket (@BrokenCricket) April 16, 2018
So that is why he has been doing this!
What a bad DRS decision by Gambhir!
Such a poor DRS from Nadeem, Pant & Gambhir.— Ashish Jha (@DareToZlaataan) April 16, 2018
Playing under Gautam gambhir makes you realize how good a captain Kohli is :D— Bala (@Bala_offl) April 16, 2018
It is always fun to watch the match with Hindi commentary! :P
English Commentary: Right decision to take the review, ball clearly hitting the bat...— Jayvijay Sachan (@JayvijaySachan) April 16, 2018
Hindi Commentary: Ji haan, yahan balla laga h aur review bhi balle ka khoobsurat istemal krke lie...waah!! #KKRvDD
Vijay Shankar, the run giving machine!
Vijay Shankar has to give Half of his IPL money to Gautam Gambhir for trusting him again.#KKRvDD— Mohan...🇮🇳 (@iamnavamohan) April 16, 2018
What a delight it was to watch Rana!
What a knock young Rana is playing, clubbing all bowlers to different parts of the ground with 4s and 6s! Could see another 200+ score here— Cricketwallah (@cricketwallah) April 16, 2018
And then came Big Andre!
Woah! That is an unbelievable stat!
The real reason behind the hammering! :P

I pity you
KKR’s inns:— Bharath Seervi (@SeerviBharath) April 16, 2018
1st over - 0 runs
20th over - 1 run
Still they have posted 200 runs on board!#KKRvDD
This was too much for Gambhir's DD and they lost the match!
Well played @KKRiders . A complete dominance in batting and bowling. Just a few concerns with bowling department, else things will be absolutely on track. Keep this moment going! #IPL2018 #IPL #KKRvDD #KKRHaiTaiyaar 👍❤️🙏— Soumajit Das (@DasSoumajit99) April 16, 2018
Yet another milestone for the guy!
100-plus wickets for a team in IPL:— Umang Pabari (@UPStatsman) April 16, 2018
Lasith Malinga for MI
Harbhajan Singh for MI
Sunil Narine for KKR* #KKRvDD
Just when you thought that they were going to keep winning...
All out in 14 overs. DD, welcome back to your usual self.— Saurabh Malhotra (@MalhotraSaurabh) April 16, 2018
Looks like you just have to win the toss and choose to bat first to win a match!
Three straight wins for the Team batting first now #KKRvDD— Gaurav Kalra (@gauravkalra75) April 16, 2018
BCCI, please take note!
DD and RCB's games should always be scheduled on back to back days. Always helps to share the disappointment. #IPL2018— Shubh AggarWall (@shubh_chintak) April 16, 2018
