DC vs KXIP – Match Report 2

This IPL match was truly gripping with Delhi Capitals beating Kings XI Punjab with all vigour and zeal at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium on Sunday.

Although KXIP was super-watchful in the beginning scoring 30 off 26 balls, DC scaled 4 wickets for 5 runs. Mohit Sharma castled Rahul for 21. Further, R Ashwin dismissed Karun Nair and Nicholas Pooran. However, Ashwin, unfortunately, injured his shoulder on the final ball of the same over and had to walk away from the field. Meanwhile, KXIP lost one more wicket and Sarfaraz Khan left soon after his side crossed the fifty-run mark.

KXIP were in need of 25 runs in the last 2 overs and Mayank was almost successful. However, with the scores tied and KXIP required to score 1 off 2 balls, Mayank, after scoring 89, got out on the penultimate ball of the final over. It was Stoinis who dismissed Chris Jordan as Rabada held on to a catch at short square-leg to push the game into the Super Over.

The twist in the match was brought about by Stoinis and he made it best! The Australian all-rounder made an all-out attack, hammering 53 off 21 balls, with the help of 7 fours and 3 sixes. He was eventually run-out in the final over, but not before he hit 2 fours and as many sixes to take his team to 157/8. That was indeed a proud moment for DC!
