Hyderabad: Scoreboard after the reigning IPL champions Kolkata Knight Riders defeated Dolphins by 36 runs in the 18th match of 2014 CLT20 played at Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, Uppal, Hyderabad on Monday.
Chasing the imposing total, the Dolphins witnessed a horrendous start as they slumped to 57 for four in 8.6 overs.
Opener Cameron Delport and Cody Chetty was dismissed in the first two overs but skipper Morne van Wyk kept alive Dolhins' fight with a 28-ball 34 during which he struck five fours and one six before he became part-time spinner Yusuf Pathan's (2/25) second victim of the day.
In between Vaughn van Jaarsveld (19) was stumped by Uthappa off Piyush Chawla.
