After restricting KKR to a paltry total, DC batters put on a decent performance too as they chased down the target with ease. Captain David Warner starred for the hosts as he hit a 41-ball 57. However, other batters struggled against the KKR spin trio of Varun Chakravarthy, Anukul Roy, and Nitish Rana. All three bowlers bagged two wickets each to put DC off-road occasionally.
