KKR climb atop point’s standings

The Kolkata Knight Riders climbed to the top of the VIVO IPL 2017 standings after they defeated the Delhi Daredevils by four wickets in a thrilling encounter last evening. Given a target of 169, KKR slipped to 21 for 3 in the third over, but recovered through a massive partnership between Manish Pandey and Yusuf Pathan to chase down the runs. There was a bit of drama at the end of the chase, but Pandey  held his nerve and took his team across the finish line. (IPL website)
