How KKR applied the squeeze on Delhi Daredevils

look at the key passages of play from game two of the 2016 IPL, in which Kolkata Knight Riders beat Delhi Daredevils by nine wickets.

Andre Russell, the big-hitting West Indies allrounder, played a superb role as a frontline bowler during the recent ICC World Twenty20. Thus it was no surprise to see Gautam Gambhir hand him the ball and open the attack on Sunday evening. The result was special, with Russell claiming 3/24 to start Daredevils' slippery slide. Russell's smarts were on display in the third over, in which he got Quinton de Kock to top-edge a bouncer and then sucked Shreyas Iyer for zero with full delivery bowled from wide of the stumps. Mayank Agarwal was Russell's third victim, out slashing to third man.
