Nair fails; Billings comes to the party

Young Delhi side continues to impress

Delhi Daredevils continued to capitalise on its recent surge to form to skittle Kings XI Punjab for their second win of the season.


Cricingif takes a look at the top moments of the game.

Nair fails once again

Since his triple-century in the Chennai Test, Karun Nair has not made a single score of 30 or more in 13 innings across all formats. He has scored 6 runs in three games this season. With almost all the other youngsters chipping in, there will be additional pressure on Nair to prove his place in the squad.

Maxwell’s struggles against Mishra

Chasing a target of 189, KXIP needed their batsmen, especially their overseas ones, to fire. But none of their top 6 batsmen was able to break the shackles as Delhi continued to strike at regular intervals. With an average of 69.33 in previous four games while chasing, Maxwell fell for a second-ball duck. Amit Mishra has picked up Maxwell’s wicket four times in five innings now.

Corey Anderson smashes them big

Playing his second game of the season, Anderson smashed 39 off 22 balls to provide late surge to DD. His all-round performance earned him the man of the match award.

Billings comes to the party

Billings perhaps played the best innings of his IPL career today, smashing KXIP bowlers around the ground. Opening the innings for DD, Billings smashed 55 off 40 balls including 9 boundaries – providing a solid foundation for the lower order to explode.
