IPL 2014 KKR Beat Delhi Gambhir and Uthappa Partnership 2nd century

IPL 2014 7th Season Gautam Gambhir and Robin Uthappa put jointly their 2nd century stand in 2 matches, Gautam Gambhir and Robin Uthappa added 106 in 11.5 overs after Kolkata Knight Riders had allowed Delhi Daredevils to recover to 160 for 5, with Delhi Daredevils Team JP Duminy and Kedar Jadhav looting 54 off the last 4 overs.
Mohammed Shami did begin with a testing opening over, but Delhi Daredevils were never able to create any sort of pressure. Gautam Gambhir and Robin Uthappa began with a four each in the second over off Wayne Parnell. Uthappa took Shami for successive boundaries in the next over, and Knight Riders were always in front for the rest of the chase.

Dinesh Karthik made a fast 36, but Delhi Daredevils still needed a last push if they were to make a competitive total. JP Duminy and Jadhav provided that, even taking Sunil Narine for 29 in his last 2 overs, but it barely tested Gautam Gambhir and Robin Uthappa.
Delhi Daredevils were tied down for 16 overs when they batted, and were 105 for 5 when JP Duminy and Jadhav came together. The openers weren't able to get going and Kevin Pietersen could not handle the spinners before running himself out.
