Punjab pip Delhi Daredevils by four runs in nail-biting contest

These two teams have already met each other in this year's Indian Premier League and Kings XI Punjab emerged victorious in that contest. Liam Plunkett marked his IPL debut scalping three wickets with an economy of just 4.25 as a disciplined bowling effort restricted Kings XI to just 143 in their 20 overs.

6- Mumbai Indians had achieved the same feat against Delhi Daredevils at the Wankhede. So, let's see what happens whether the Gayle storm works for Punjab and leads to its victory like a roaring lion again or the home team seeking its advantages.

The Delhi Daredevils fell to their fifth loss in six games as they failed to chase down a humble target of 144, set by the Chris Gayle-less Kings XI Punjab, and now prop up the bottom of the table.

For the Daredevils, it was middle-order batsman Shreyas Iyer who waged a lone battle with 57 runs off 45 balls and was the last wicket to fall off the final ball from Mujeeb.

When play resumed an hour-and-a-half later, Kings XI required 29 from 28 balls and Gayle wasted no time in lifting the first delivery straight back overhead to bring up his half-century from 24 balls. Liam Plunkett is also on Delhi's books.

However, the major problem for the KXIP innings was that each of Mayank Agarwal (21), Karun Nair (34), David Miller (26) and Yuvraj Singh (14) got starts but did not convert them into substantial scores.

Chasing a low total of just 143, Delhi got off to a bad start losing three wickets in the Powerplay overs. But they then struggled to maintain the momentum after Plunkett uprooted Mayank Agarwal's stumps for 21.

But, while going for one shot too many, the youngster lost his wicket to pacer Rajpoot, who then also claimed the big fish Glenn Maxwell for 12.

AB de Villiers smeared 90 not out from just 39 balls as RCB hammered Delhi by six wickets on Saturday but there was at least one moment for the Daredevils to cherish - Trent Boult's quite remarkable one-handed catch to dismiss Virat Kohli.

Gambhir (Delhi Daredevils), "When you lose three wickets in the first six overs, it's always hard. Good part is that our bowling was really good today but our batsmen couldn't complete the job". AJ (Tye) was my best bowler of the day, so bowled him early because if he got Shreyas Iyer, then that's the game and that's why I bowled him out early. "We are in it to win it and if we win, I will do something special". Plunkett came and went back for a golden duck, leaving Daredevils with an arduous task of scoring 17 in six balls.

Andrew Tye (2/25) continued to prove his worth in the shortest format while Ankit Rajpoot (2/23) was the pick of the bowlers.
