In today’s afternoon match of the 2020 (IPL 2020), defeated by 59 runs at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi. Varun Chakravarthy broke the back of Delhi's batting line-up with a 5-wicket haul. 

Earlier, DC won the toss and opted to field. Nitish Rana and Sunil Narine put up 115 runs for the fourth wicket to help (KKR) get over a poor start to their innings and post 194/6 in 20 overs against at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium here on Saturday.
KKR were tottering at 42/3 in the eighth over when Narine, sent in ahead of captain Eoin Morgan, joined Rana in the middle. The West Indies spinner has been having a lean run with the bat but on Saturday, he turned the tide in KKR's favour hitting six fours and four sixes.

Narine fell in the 17th over to Rabada but Rana carried on. He was finally dismissed on the penultimate ball of the innings on 81 by Marcus Stoinis. Stoinis then dismissed Morgan off the very next ball with the England captain on 17 off 9 balls.

Rabada and Anrich Nortje tore into the KKR top order. Both ended the match with two wickets each.
