New Delhi: Delhi Capitals edged  Kolkata Knight Riders in a thrilling Super Over here at Feroz Shah Kotla on Saturday. KKR needed 11 runs in Super Over, but they could only manage seven.

Earlier, the scores were tied at 185. Young Prithvi Shaw fell agonisingly short of a hundred (99 off 55 balls) and Delhi, who were cruising towards the finish line, suffered a collapse after his dismissal.

 As Shaw departed in the 19th over, the match went down to the wire. From six off six balls, KKR bowler Kuldeep Yadav reduced the equation to two off the last ball. As Delhi’s Colin Ingram couldn’t complete his second the match had to be stretched to the Super Over.

Andre Russell endured a beamer blow but still produced a blistering knock to lift Kolkata Knight Riders to a fighting 185 for 7.

Yet again proving his worth with the willow, the Jamaican resurrected the innings of KKR, who were reeling at 64 for five at the half-way mark.
