Kings XI Punjab Restrict Delhi Daredevils To 120/9

Kings XI Punjab bowlers did an exceptional job to restrict Delhi Daredevils to a mere 120 for nine…

Brett Lee came up with brilliant bowling spell to help Punjab restrict Delhi to a low total.

Lee started the day by sending back Virender Sehwag early after Delhi Daredevils were put in to bat by Kings XI Punjab in their IPL match on Friday.

After Sehwag departed, Gautam Gambhir also joined his partner in the dressing room.

Then S Sreesanth also bagged wickets of AB de Villiers and Tillakaratne Dilshan in quick succession to put Punjab on top.

Thereafter, Delhi simply kept on losing wickets at regular intervals.

Brett Lee finsihed with impressive figures of three for 15, Sreesanth and Irfan Pathan took two wickets each.

Mahela Jayawardene is still out injured, but Punjab have brought in Ramesh Powar in place of Karan Goel.

For Delhi, Farveez Maharoof gets his chance, while Daniel Vettori returns in place of David Warner.

Having already secured a place in the semi-finals, Delhi is keen to continue the good work as they take on Punjab.

If Delhi are on a high after becoming the first team to qualify for the last four stage with 16 points from 10 matches, Punjab have been laid low by some rather inconsistent performance that see them second from the bottom of the points table in the eight-team event.


Delhi Daredevils: G Gambhir, V Sehwag (capt), TM Dilshan, AB de Villiers, KD Karthik (wk), R Bhatia, DL Vettori, A Mishra, MF Maharoof, P Sangwan, A Nehra.

Kings XI Punjab: S Sohal, SM Katich, Yuvraj Singh (capt), KC Sangakkara (wk), IK Pathan, LA Pomersbach, B Lee, PP Chawla, RR Powar, WA Mota, S Sreesanth.
