KKR vs DD Pepsi IPl 2013 Live Score 1st T20 - Kolkata vs Delhi
Watch live score of the match between KKR vs DD. Two form teams of last season, both hit by injuries and absence, take on each other in the Pepsi IPL T20 2013 opener.
Once upon a time IPL whistled into popular imagination with KKR mauling a hapless RCB courtesy some unforgettable fireworks by Brendan McCullum. The innings gave IPL its spurs, and lent credibility to a tournament which many major players (Dale Steyn, to cite one) considered little more than a 'rich holiday'. The cash and glamor on offer has burgeoned since, as have the roster of controversies, the label of 'ruining the technique of young players' etc. But IPL remains the sought after honey pot for international cricketers to cash in on, and a ladder for fringe players (young hopefuls, domestic stalwarts or retired internationals) as long as they can prove their worth. The blueprint of commercial success has generated similar tournaments in almost every country.
Now into its adulthood after five years of bedlam, Kolkata takes on Delhi in the opener.
