IPL 2018: Kings XI beat Delhi by 4 runs

Today's match is scheduled to be played at the Feroz Shah Kotla stadium located in Delhi.

Shreyas Iyer - 8: (57 off 45) Delighted to hold on to catch from Karun Nair after a juggle. However, Plunkett put an end to Rahul's innings. Trent Boult (2/21) and Avesh Khan (2/36) had two wickets apiece.

Liam Plunkett - 8: (0 off 1, 3-17 from 4 overs) Superb debut.

So what has been going wrong? Irrespective of that though, he is already the second highest run-scorer (213 runs) for KXIP, 16 runs behind the big-hitting Chris Gayle (229).

CSK are finding new heroes with every passing game and they will be well served if they get one more when they travel to Bengaluru for the much-anticipated clash against the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) on Wednesday, April 25.

Morris has dismissed Gayle thrice in 36 balls conceding 40 runs. All of it came back to bite him. But they then struggled to maintain the momentum after Plunkett uprooted Mayank Agarwal's stumps for 21.

After adding 15 more runs tot he total, Avesh sent back veteran batsman Yuvraj Singh (14) to make things worse for the visitors.

Flyers down Penguins on road to force Game 6
Everyone, that is, expect Ivan Provorov . "Neuvy hasn't come in and played a full game in a while, (and) Coots, enough said". When you're playing a tie game, that, a lot of times, has an impact on the minutes played or how they're administered.

In the context of the game David Miller's 26 off 19 balls would lift the Kings XI to a defendable score though the Proteas star looked far from his best.

Gayle lashed 63 off 33 balls against CSK as he won his slugfest with MS Dhoni, before cracking an unbeaten 104 from 63 - his sixth IPL ton - against Sunrisers and then 62 not out from 38 balls as Kings XI beat KKR in a rain-affected clash on Saturday.

Batting first, after winning the toss, Punjab looked in trouble at the end of the innings with just 142 runs on the board.

Marshalled to perfection by R Ashwin, their skipper, Punjab kept the line tight and set fields to peel Delhi away from dreams of a nice and easy win. Caught on the boundary by Aaron Finch on final ball.

Pant let Mujeeb Ur Rahman slip through the massive gap between bat and pad, and Christian ran himself out silly. His young batting lineup could never recover after his 13-ball stay for four runs. Now, DD will be playing in front of the home crowd. Yet, the 47-run alliance, the result of Iyer's calculated knock and Tewatia's penchant for the big heave, brought the equation down to 21 needed from 12.

On the other hand, Tewatia also shares the same privilege of being the second most wicket-taker for DD, with six wickets. "Our bowlers did really well to restrict them but we lost too many wickets in the first six and it's always hard when that happens". Before Rahul's dismissal meanwhile, Khan banged one short and Finch's miscued pull went to Iyer. Iyer gives up the single on the next delivery before picking up a couple on the 4 delivery.
