We have witnessed a crackerjack of an encounter between Delhi Capitals and Kolkata Knight Riders and one will have to say that both the team didn't give an inch to the other and eventually the game went to super over. Kolkata Knight Riders had lost five quick wickets up front but Andre Russell and Dinesh Karthik had some other plans and scored 185 runs on the board. Delhi Capitals, while chasing lost Shikhar Dhawan early in the innings but Shreyas Iyer along with star-sensation Prithvi Shaw which made the team look in a strong position. Shaw's 99 made the target look not so competitive. However, just when Shaw departed, Kolkata came well in the last over, pulling off a super over clash. In Super Over, it was Shreyas Iyer's team who held their nerves better and upstaged Kolkata Knight Riders by 3 runs in a nail-biting clash at Feroz Shah Kotla, Delhi.  LIVE SCORECARD
