Sunil Narine slammed an explosive 85 off just 39 deliveries to guide Kolkata Knight Riders to a sensational victory over Delhi Capitals in IPL 2024 on Wednesday. The knock was instrumental in taking KKR to a mammoth total of 272/7 – the second highest in the history of the competition – and it turned to be too much for DC who were defeated by 106 runs. However, Narine was handed a huge lifeline when he edged a delivery off Ishant Sharma to Rishabh Pant behind the stumps but the DC skipper was late in asking for the DRS review after the umpire ruled in KKR’s favour.

Pant was in two minds about taking the review and after some persuasion from his teammates, he finally took the review but he was denied as the clock had already run out. However, some social media users were not convinced as they pointed out that Pant was wrongly denied.

Kolkata Knight Riders thrashed Delhi Capitals by 106 runs to continue their winning run in IPL 2024. Set an improbable target of 273, Delhi Capitals were all out for 166 in 17.2 overs.

Batting first, the seasoned Sunil Narine and young Angkrish Raghuvanshi struck scintillating half-centuries to power Kolkata Knight Riders to an imposing 272 for seven.

Narine blasted 85 in a mere 39 balls while the 18-year-old Raghuvanshi smashed his way to 54 off 27 deliveries, as the DC bowlers ran for cover.

Andre Russell blazed away to 41 in just 19 balls while Rinku Singh made 26 in eight balls, continuing KKR’s dominance through the innings. For DC, skipper Rishabh Pant hammered 55 in 25 balls while Tristan Stubbs sizzled with 54 in 32 deliveries.
