An all-round bowling display followed by a composed fifty from David Warner and a steady finish from Axar Patel saw Delhi Capitals beat Kolkata Knight Riders by a margin of four wickets in match number 28 of the Indian Premier League 2023. With this, Delhi registered their first win in the ongoing IPL season. 

The toss belonged to the hosts in a rain-delayed game as David Warner & Co decided to bowl first. Mukesh Kumar drew the first blood for DC as Litton Das departed for four runs off four balls. Soon, Anrich Nortje banged one to dismiss Venkatesh Iyer in the slip cordon with a fearsome bowling display in the fourth over. From there on DC went berserk against the likes of KKR batters as they piled up wickets at regular intervals leaving the batters clueless. 

However, Jason Roy kept the innings going from one end with 43 runs from 39 balls but succumbed to Kuldeep Yadav’s spin dominance in the 15th over. Andre Russell fought alone in the last five overs. Russell went bonkers against Mukesh Kumar in the 20th over to help KKR post 127 runs on the board in 20 overs. Russell amassed unbeaten 38 runs from 31 balls that included five boundaries. For DC, Ishant Sharma Kuldeep Yadav, Anrich Nortje and Axar Patel picked two wickets each.

Chasing 128, Capitals got off to a brisk start in the powerplay, but Varun Chakravarthy drew the first blood for KKR as Prithvi Shaw departed after an 11-ball 13 runs cameo. Soon, Varun Chakravarthy sent back Mitchell Marsh who departed for two runs off nine balls as David Warner kept going as he struck 57 off 41 deliveries, which included eleven fours. Nitish Rana and Anukul Roy chipped in with wickets in the middle overs as DC's middle-order fell in quick succession and were left reeling at 93/4 in 13.1 overs. However, Manish Pandey (21 off 23) and in-form all-rounder Axar Patel (19* off 22) helped DC register their first win in IPL 2023.
