2- Kings XI Punjab have been scoring runs with an average of 64 in the powerplay this season. For Daredevils, Plunkett was impressive with the ball as he returned figures of 3/17 in his quota of four overs. Without a particle of uncertainty, the Daredevils have been the slightest noteworthy of all groups in a previous couple of seasons of the money rich event. This is the first home game for Delhi and away game for Punjab.

Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) have achieved the top spot in the Vivo IPL 2019 points table defeating Delhi Daredevils (DD) by 4 runs in a last over thriller.

Iyer raised his half-century with a straight six off Mujeeb in the last over, and his valiant 57 went in vain on the last ball of the match. They have conceded 178 or more in their last three games, and if it wasn't for Gayle's magic over the past week, Kings XI could very well have been languishing in the bottom half of the table.

Young Afghan spinner Mujeeb has earned the faith of skipper Ravichandran Ashwin (0/19) who favoured him to bowl the final over with 17 needed and Iyer on strike.

Yes, he (Shreyas Iyer) was brilliant and also Avesh did really well.

However, before his arrival, the police arrested several from the community and dispersed the protesters from the location. Though the BJP swept UP in the 2014 general election, the BJP lost both Rae Bareli and Amethi to the Congress .

Plunkett then proceeded to bowl Mayank Agarwal for 21 off 16 balls with a 146kph rocket; by then, Kings XI were 60 for 3 in the eighth over.

Delhi Daredevils: Gautam Gambhir (captain), Shreyas Iyer, Chris Morris, Rishabh Pant, Glenn Maxwell, Jason Roy, Colin Munro, Mohammed Shami, Amit Mishra, Prithvi Shaw, Rahul Tewatia, Vijay Shankar, Harshal Patel, Avesh Khan, Shahbaz Nadeem, Daniel Christian, Jayant Yadav, Gurkeerat Singh Mann, Trent Boult, Manjot Kalra, Naman Ojha, Sayan Ghosh, Liam Plunkett, Abhishek Sharma, Sandeep Lamichhane.

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.

Karun Nair (34) and Mayank Agarwal (21) both got starts before falling to Plunkett, who made a dream debut in Delhi's four-man seam attack only after Kagiso Rabada was ruled out of the IPL because of a back injury. "I think Virender Sehwag saved the IPL by picking me (in the January auctions)", said Gayle with a big smile. If we were serious about winning, this is a game we needed to win. Once you defend a low score, then you can bank on anybody and everybody to go the distance. "Good part is that our bowling was really good today but our batsmen couldn't complete the job". For Punjab, Rajpoot, Rahman and Andrew Tye bagged two wickets apiece while Barinder Sran took one wicket.
