IPL: Delhi opt to field vs Punjab

Chris Gayle and Shane Watson Gayle force takes Kings XI top of the standings
Jerome Frank | 23 April, 2018, 21:45

Opting to field after winning the toss, Delhi Daredevils quickly snuffed out the wicket of Aaron Finch through Avesh Khan.

It wasn't a happy homecoming for Delhi Daredevils as they failed to chase 144 and Kings XI Punjab registered a 4-run win in a thrilling tie at the Feroz Shah Kotla on Monday.Going in with as many as five changes, Delhi fielded an nearly new team but failed to register a victory.India's World Cup winning U-19 captain Prithvi Shaw made his debut and looked good with the bat scoring quick-fire 22 off just 10 balls to provide a fast start in the chase.

Gautam Gambhir hasn't really fired up to his potential. It looks a good wicket won't change. We haven't played here, but had a decent camp.

Delhi Daredevils will play their first home game of the 2018 season of Indian Premier League. If Chris Gayle being rested tonight due to some sore was not a great news for the visitors, the batting collapse completely terrorized them. It gives Aaron Finch a chance too as the top of the order, and David Miller has been hitting them well in practice as well.

The Daredevils have played 5 games with just 1 win and are at the bottom of the points table, struggling to perform together as a unit.

Delhi, despite a fearless knock of 80s by Rishbh Pant, failed to clinch a win against Royal Challengers Bangalore in their last match. Morris who was expected to be a death overs specialist for the Delhi Daredevils has conceded plenty of runs and batsmen have found him pretty easy to score off. Plunkett, who was a late replacement for Kagiso Rabada, bowled with a lot of variation, never allowing the Kings XI Punjab batsman to settle.

Returning to his home city franchise, skipper Gautam Gambhir would look to get his scoring touch back.

Incoming batter Mayank Agarwal and opener Lokesh Rahul (23) then showed some resistance, putting a 36-run partnership for the second wicket to take Punjab to 42 runs.
