DC vs KKR IPL match

Delhi Capitals lost the game to KKR by 106 runs after the latter smashed 272 for seven, the second-highest total in IPL history. It was Delhi Capitals' third loss in four games. After the 106-run loss to KKR, the team's head coach Ricky Ponting said that he was embarrassed with his side's first half of the game and how his side conceded too many runs while bowling at a slow-over rate.

During the post-match press conference, Ponting said, “I was almost embarrassed with our first half of the game today - to concede that many runs. It took us two hours as well to bowl our overs, so we were two overs behind again, which means the guys bowling the last two overs only get to bowl with four fielders outside the circle. There are a lot of things that happened in this game that are unacceptable; we have to fix [them] immediately to go forward in this tournament."
