IPL 2018, DD vs KXIP: The first match at Feroz Shah Kotla, Delhi of this season, had the home team, Delhi Daredevils as they battle it out with Kings XI Punjab. In an intense game that went well till the last ball, KXIP won by 4 runs. With a total of 10 runs KXIP now sits on the top of the Points table and Unfortunately for Delhi, they are still at the bottom.
Invited to Bat first, the host missed the charm today. With no Gayle, Flinch and Rahul could not stick to the crease. In an inning where no one could even cross 40 runs, KXIP put up a simple 143/8 target for Delhi.
A brilliant start by Prithvi Shaw 22(10), went down the drain when no one could continue the momentum and kept losing wickets similar to their opponent. Since the target wasn’t a big sum, it was achievable till the last over. A marvelous performance by Ankit Rajpoot, with 2 wickets and just 23 runs in 4 overs. Although helping Delhi was Barinder Sran, who gave 45 runs in 4 overs. He did redeem himself in the penultimate over by a wicket, but those runs could have cost Punjab the game.
Shreyas Iyer played an intelligent game in the last over and managed a Six and a boundary, but missed to hit a six on the last ball and gave his wicket failing to grab a second win for the team.

Delhi’s bowling is not their best suit. They have till now let loose totals of 167, 153, 194, 200 and 176 in their five matches. While Chris Morris and Mohammed Shami were expected to lead the bowling attack but obviously that has not happened.
The opponents are on a roll, majorly due to the ‘Universe God,’ Chris Gayle. The one area they need to improve is the pace bowling front. The Death overs have rained runs in almost all their outings.
