KXIP beat DD by five wickets

New Delhi, April 23: Kings XI Punjab batsmen complemented a fine display by their bowling colleagues as they scored an easy five-wicket victory over Delhi Daredevils in their Pepsi Indian Premier League (IPL) match which was held in New Delhi on Tuesday .

The KXIP bowlers restricted the Delhi side to a meagre 120 for seven after putting the home side in and then their batsmen chased down the target with three overs to spare in a match that produced few exciting moments for the almost full- house crowd at the Feroze Shah Kotla Stadium.

None of the visiting batsmen scored big but most of them made small contributions to chase down the small target. Last match hero, David Miller top-scored with an unbeaten 39-ball 34 while opener Mandeep Singh chipped in with a 15-ball 24.

KXIP's run chase was built on the rollicking 44-run stand for the second wicket between Mandeep and Luke Pomersbach (18) from just 4.1 overs. Though KXIP lost two quick wickets after the initial burst, the small total meant that they romped home easily as they reached 121 for five in 17 overs.

KXIP's second consecutive win on Tuesday took them to eight points from seven matches to remain at fifth place in the table while Delhi languished at the bottom with their seventh loss in eight matches. Delhi will now need to win all their remaining matches to have a chance of making the knockouts.
