KXIP vs DC Match Report 38
Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) made their third win after they beat Delhi Capitals (DC) by five wickets in the Dream11 Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 in Dubai on Tuesday.
Requiring 165 runs to win, KXIP lost their first wicket in the third over as KL Rahul got out for 15 in the third over off Axar Patel’s bowling. DC kept things really intact as KXIP could score not more than 24 in the first four overs. On the other hand, Chris Gayle opened his shoulders and hammered three fours and two sixes in the fifth over bowled by Tushar Deshpande to take KXIP to fifty.
Further, DC introduced R Ashwin in the attack in the final over of the powerplay and it worked wonders as he got Gayle out for 29. DC then struck for the second time in the over as Mayank Agarwal was run-out following a mix-up with Nicholas Pooran.
KXIP moved past 100 in the 10th over as Pooran, continuing his big-hitting ways, targeted Marcus Stoinis, hitting a four and a six. The Pooran-Maxwell duo completed the fifty-run partnership in the 11th over. A few overs later, Pooran brought up his half-century but got out in the same over after edging one to Rishabh Pant off Kagiso Rabada’s bowling.
Finally, Dhawan made history as he became the first batsman to score two successive IPL hundreds. The left-hander, who had scored a ton in DC’s last game against Chennai Super Kings, brought up his hundred in 57 balls. DC eventually posted 164/5 on the board, with Dhawan scoring 106 off 61 balls, hitting 12 fours and 3 sixes.
