Punjab swiftly moved into a share of the lead with Chennai Super Kings after its fourth win from five games. For Daredevils, Plunkett was impressive with the ball as he returned figures of 3/17 in his quota of four overs.

Kings XI's openers have made 55.4% of the team's runs this season, the highest among all teams.

6- Mumbai Indians had achieved the same feat against Delhi Daredevils at the Wankhede.

Gautam Gambhir can be the key tonight as he has been out of touch after a good knock in Delhi's first game.

Karun Nair of Kings XI Punjab celebrates wicket of Sunil Narine of Kolkata Knight Riders during match eighteen of the Vivo Indian Premier League 2018 (IPL 2018) between the Kolkata Knight Riders and the Kings XI Punjab held at the Eden Gardens Cricket Stadium in Kolkata on the 21st April 2018.

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. Earlier, even before the spectators could settle down on their seats to watch this showdown, the news of Chris Gayle sitting out of the playing XI due to a fitness issue took the fizz out of the game.

Tuning in to Record Store Day in Delco
In addition to releasing hundreds of new records, every big band except the Beatles has something coming out, Matti said. Nathan McGlothlin describes spending time in a local record store as having a "sense of belonging and identity".


The onus was on the in-form Rishabh Pant and Iyer, both coming off smashing half-centuries, but 17-year-old spinner Mujeeb had other ideas as he struck with his very first ball, his carrom ball making its way through the gap between Pant's bat and pad. He was caught by Liam Plunket at the hands of Uran Khan. However, Shreyas Iyer kept the hope in DD dugout alive as he stitched a partnership of 47 runs with Rahul Tewatia at a crucial time.

Barinder Sran's penultimate over yielded a wicket and conceded four runs, leaving Delhi with 17 runs to get from the final over.

It wasn't a very bad start as far as net run rate was concerned, but KXIP suffered another blow as Plunkett uprooted Mayank Agarwal's stumps after beating him for pace.

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. Using that to their advantage Daredevils managed to restrict Kings XI Punjab to 143 for 8, thanks to the efforts of Liam Plunkett and Avesh Khan. "Have to see how it goes in the game", KXIP skipper Ravichandran Ashwin said at the toss. "They wanted to attack, which fell in our hands".

Delhi, in response, got off to a disastrous start as they lost three wickets in the first six overs, itself.

Andrew Tye bowled the 18th over and gave away only seven, and picked up the wicket of Tewatia.
