All hail the brilliance of Varun Chakraborty!:Kolkata Knight Riders won their 6th match of the ongoing 13th edition of the Indian Premier League by defeating Delhi Capitals by a huge margin of 59 runs in the just concluded match at Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi.

The match that started off as a dream for Delhi Capitals was turned into a nightmare by KKR’s mystery spinners Sunil Narine and Varun Chakravarthy, who shined both with the bat and ball, respectively.

Later, while defending the target runs, DC’s bowlers did phenomenal work as not just they restricted the batsmen from scoring big runs but they also took wickets in quick successions. However, it was the performance of Varun Chakravarthy that shattered all the hopes of Delhi Capitals.

Varun started his brilliance by getting rid of Rishabh Pant(27 off 33 balls) in the second delivery of his spell. Pant couldn’t time his shot to perfection and was caught by Shubman Gill. He then turned lethal and dismissed Shimron Hetmyer and Shreyas Iyer. Marcus Stoinis became the next victim of Varun, who was followed by Axar Patel. The young lad took a five wickets-haul, while he gave away just 20 runs in his 4 overs for five wickets.

As soon as the game came to an end, social media was already flooded with praises for Varun Chakraborty. From cricketers, cricket experts to fans, people are applauding the brilliant performance of Varun.
