Andre Russell's assault of 45 runs from 27 balls in death overs ensured KKR posted a respectable total on the board but that wasn't enough for them as Prithvi Shaw's blistering innings ensured that KKR were never in the game, thus DC registered their 5th win of IPL 2021 without breaking much sweat.
