21:29 WICKET! Andre Russell b Trent Boult 41 (12)
The rampage continues
Andre Russell continued to go after Mohammad Shami and for the second time in the match he smashed the Delhi Daredevils bowler for three sixes.
The first was a square-drive over deep point, the second a massive hit over midwicket and the third a mishit that sailed straight onto the sightscreen.
The 17th over netted 20 runs as Russel raced to 41 off 11 balls, including six sixes.
Russell on a six-hitting spree
Andre Russell made his presence felt with a flurry of sixes off Mohammad Shami as Kolkata continued to score big despite the fall of wickets.
Russell hit three sixes, over third man, long off and the third a massive hit over mid-wicket in the 15th over. In between he also survived a scare as Jason Roy running in from long-on could only get his fingertips to a miscued shot off a Shami's slower ball.
It was the most productive over the innings for Kolkata, earning them 22 runs. In the next over, Nitish Rana continued the six hitting spree by depositing a short Chris Morris delivery into the deep midwicket stands before slashing a boundary off the same bowler.
21:26 Coming back from the strategic time out, Russell opens with a six! Couple of singles keeps the score board ticking. Andre then scores two more sixes to end the over. Amidst pressure, Shami appears clueless.
KKR 177/4 after 17 overs.

KKR 157/4 after 16 overs.
21:16 Poor awareness does Karthik in
Dinesh Karthik twice hit pacer Chris Morris to the mid-wicket fence but he showed poor match sense by hitting a similar delivery straight to the fielder, Chris Boult, who had been moved to plug the gap in the deep.
The Kolkata captain who had hit a six off Vijay Shankar’s over earlier was dismissed for 19 off 10 balls. Nitish Rana, at the other end, however continued with his big hitting ways by tonking Morris for a six in the same over as Kolkata closed out the 14th over with a wicket and 15 runs.
21:14 Andre Russell starts off with a six at third man, right inside KKR’s dugout! Then, he hits the next ball high in the air, only to get dropped by Jason Roy. It was a difficult catch, though.
That doesn’t deter Russell. He hits another six at long off before replicating the same on the leg side. Big over for KKR.
KKR 145/4 after 15 overs.
21:08 Dinesh Karthik has completed over 3,000 runs in the IPL! To celebrate, Karthik smashes one over the leg side for a four. Next ball, same result. Karthik times it well and dispatches it for another boundary.

21:06 WICKET! Dinesh Karthik c Boult b Morris

KKR 108/3 after 13 overs.
20:57 Vijay Shankar starts for the Daredevils. Rana pulls a short delivery to the leg side boundary for a four. He smashes it again on the fifth ball with a top edge. The ball however, lands over the boundary, for a six.
KKR 102/3 after 12 overs.
20:55 Shami nails Lynn

Lynn made 31 off 29 balls and Kolkata were 90-3 after 11 overs with Nitish Rana on 22 off 13 at the other end.

KKR 90/3 after 11 overs.
20:49 WICKET! Lynn c Jason Roy b Mohammad Shami
20:48 Rana takes control
Nitish Rana hit sixes in back to back overs as Kolkata batsmen continued to dominate the Delhi Daredevils bowling. Rana first clouted leg-spinner Rahul Tewatia into the midwicket stands and the left-hander then handed out the same treatment to Shahbaz Nadeem by smashing a six and a four.
Kolkata were 85 for 2 after 10 overs with Rana on 21 off 12 balls and Chris Lynn on 28 off 25 balls.
20:45 Rana goes on the leg side: First for a six, followed by a four. 14 off the 10th over.
KKR 85/2 after 10 overs.
20:39 Nadeem gets his revenge
Left-arm spinner Shahbaz Nadeem who was taken to the cleaners by Robin Uthappa in his first over, extracted a sweet revenge by dismissing the batsman with a slower delivery that turned and Uthappa could only top edge it for the bowler to take a return catch.
Uthappa was dismissed for 35 off 19 balls that included three sixes and two fours. Lynn was batting at the other end on 27 as Kolkata were 64-2 after eighth overs.
20:38 Nitish Rana, the promising youngster is the new batsman. He smacks one over the leg side, for a six! Couple of singles to end the over.

20:35 This was probably the breakthrough Delhi were looking for. Robin Uthappa mistimes his shot. Result: He gets caught by Nadeem, ending Knight Riders’ onslaught.
KKR 64/2 after 8 overs.
20:32 WICKET! Robin Uthappa c & b Nadeem
20:31 Lynn, Uthappa on the charge
Robin Uthappa started it with a fluent straight drive and Chris Lynn followed suit with two back to back straight fours in Trent Boult’s third over to step up Kolkata’s scoring rate.
The over fetched 13 runs but they imrproved upon it in the next over bowled by left-arm spinner Shahbaz Nadeem by gathering 18 runs. Uthappa scored all those runs by bludgeoning two sixes and a four as Kolkata galloped to 50 for 1 after the powerplay.
20:30 Wrist spinner Rahul Tewatia comes in to bowl. That doesn’t make any difference. Uthappa strikes one over the leg side for a six. Uthappa edges the next ball. The ball goes high up in the air, but lands safely. That gives Uthappa another life in this match.
KKR 60/1 after 7 overs.
20:26 Perfect bat swing from Uthappa. This time, the ball sails over the boundary for a six. Six off the first ball relieved the batsmen and put Nadeem under pressure immediately.

19:51 Captain’s view
Gautam Gambhir (DD): It looks like a good track and won't change much. It will be good to bat.
Dinesh Karthik (KKR): All teams seem to be chasing. It gives us an opportunity to put runs on the board. Batting with intent is something what we will look to do.
19:50 Delhi win toss, bowl first
The toss threw up no surprises and the trend of captains putting the opposition into bat after the coin spun in their favour continued on Monday night as well. Gautam Gambhir called correctly and preferred to chase in his first game at the Eden Gardens in a Delhi Daredevils shirt after leading Kolkata Knight Riders for seven years.
19:44 Players to watch out for:
Gautam Gambhir, DD captain: Once synonymous with Kokata Knight Riders, having led them for seven seasons, Gambhir returns to his "second home" donning a new shirt. Nobody in his team would know the conditions at the Eden Gardens as much as Gambhir. A perfect situation for him to come good as a batsman and leader.
Dinesh Karthik, KKR captain: Like Gambhir, Karthik has been part of the Delhi squad for four seasons and now he lines up against them as captain of KKR. Barring the last match defeat against Sunrisers Hyderabad, he has led the side well. He will be looking to score big on tactics and as a batsman to trigger a revival.
19:34 Team changes:
Kolkata: Tom Curran comes in for Mitchell Johnson
Delhi: Chris Morris comes in for Dan Christian
19:31 Gautam Gambhir has win the toss for Delhi Daredevils. They have opted to bowl.
