IPL 2018: Shreyas Iyer steers Delhi to victory

On the day Gautam Gambhir announced his resignation as Delhi Daredevils captain, he did so sitting next to coach Ricky Ponting and CEO Hemant Dua. "Colin [Munro] came in and gave us the desired start". Shreyas said, "I am ready for the new challenge". That in turn helped them beat the Kolkata Knight Riders by 55 runs. The first to stand was former captain Gautam Gambhir, who did not stop clapping till a smiling Shreyas came up to shake hands with his predecessor. 'It wasn't my decision to drop him. He had himself opted to sit out, possibly to make the transition easier for Iyer and also ensure the best XI for Delhi was on the park. The respect has gone really high for him.

While Iyer stole the limelight with his belligerence in the later part of the innings, it was Shaw's 44-ball 62, laced with seven boundaries and a couple of sixes and Munro's 18-ball 33, that set the tone with a 59-run opening start.

Daredevils won the match by 55 runs and climbed to the seventh spot on the table. Everyone was aware of their roles and contributed really well.

This was Delhi's second win in 7 matches and the fourth defeat for KKR in as many games.

"I don't think there was much difference in how we played (earlier), it's just that we got a good start in the first powerplay".

Batting like a man-possessed, Iyer hammered young pacer Shivam Mavi for four sixes and a four in the last over of the innings as Daredevils collected 76 runs from the last four.

The young Mumbai lad though went from strength to strength and along with his new captain Iyer continued the good work before being bowled by Chawla. However, it was a performance which indicated that he is not averse to taking responsibility, which is the need of the hour for the Daredevils. In the middle overs, Russell did cut lose but the pressure of the required rate meant that he eventually lost his wicket searching for quick runs.

Off-spinner Glenn Maxwell, who clean bowled dangerman Chris Lynn in the first over finished with 2-22 while leg-spinner Amit Mishra (2-23) and seamer Avesh Khan (2-29) also picked up two wickets each.

Kolkata needed a fast start in response, but some pinpoint bowling from Trent Boult dislodged the risky Sunil Narine and experienced Robin Uthappa.

The visitors, who won the toss and chose to bowl, had a poor start with the bat during the chase and could never recover.

Delhi's display in the final four overs will have been in Kolkata's mind as they approached the death overs with a hefty deficit to overturn.
