Chasing 195 to win, Delhi could only score 135/9 as spinner Chakravarthy turned out to be the star bowler for KKR with his match-winning figures of 5-20.
With this win, KKR brightened their chances in the race for a spot in the playoffs. The former champions now have 12 points from 11 matches and are fourth on the leaderboard.
“The next challenge is to get into the playoffs and lift the cup for KKR,” Chakravarthy told Dinesh Karthik in a video posted by iplt20.com.
During the match against Chennai Super Kings on October 7, Chakravarthy had bowled Chennai skipper MS Dhoni. Recalling the wicket, Chakravarthy said it was a “surreal” experience and he will cherish that moment.

“It felt very surreal. I was a net bowler and before that, I used to go to Chepauk stadium to see the matches. To take the wicket of Dhoni was surreal and I will definitely cherish that moment in my life,” he said.
Chakravarthy is also happy to play alongside Karthik and said: “It feels great to play alongside DK as I started with wicketkeeping because of DK. So it feels great to be standing next to him. I have huge respect for him for what he has done for Tamil Nadu and India. I feel privileged to play under him.”
