Punjab dump Delhi to take top spot

But, nothing great was fore played by the Daredevils on the ground leading to disappointment for their fans with only 1 victory out of the 5 matches played and being at the lowest position in the IPL 2018 points table. 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. Rohit Sharma's unit has lost four out five games in last overs and they're in desperate need of some good luck.

The match will take place at the Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium, New Delhi. Iyer's was the last wicket to fall, claimed by Mujeeb for a well-compiled 57 (45 deliveries, 5x4, 1x6).

Incoming batter Glen Maxwell (12) and skipper Gautam Gambhir (4) once again struggled to gather runs as both were back in the dug-out in the fifth and sixth over respectively, leaving Delhi at 42/3. On Monday they face a chaotic Delhi Daredevils team who are bottom of the pile having lost their face-off against fellow strugglers Bangalore later on the same day.

WICKET! Avesh Khan gets his first wicket as he removes Aaron Finch early courtesy a good catch by Shreyas Iyer. But, Mayank Agarwal's throw from the deep was spot on as their skipper Ravichandran Ashwin did the rest, taking off the bails to send Dan Christian packing for 6 off 11 balls.

Wicketkeeper Pant has been their best batsman this season with 223 keeps running from five recreations.

If Daredevils thought they were in for a straightforward chase, they were wrong. Ankit Rajpoot, who had also travelled to South Africa as a net bowler with Avesh, hit the pitch and the splice hard.

Spinner Mujeeb-Ur-Rahman accounted for Rishabh Pant with a handsome googly, which Pant failed to read. He's already scored a couple of half centuries and a century to signal a return of form and will be one of the most crucial wickets for Delhi Daredevils to take.

Delhi Daredevils vs Kings XI Punjab: Indian Premier League 22nd match is between the Delhi Daredevils and Kings XI Punjab. In addition to Gambhir, besides Baiting, Shreyas Iyer, Glenn Maxwell, Colin Munro, Jason Roy and Prithvi Shaw.

But Delhi paid the price for dropping David Miller on 6 and 10 in successive overs.

Rahul is the fastest scoring opener early in his innings and Gayle is living up to the nickname Universe Boss. Miller went for 26 from 19 balls as Punjab were 127/6 in 17.3 overs.
