IPL3. Day.31. Match 44. Delhi Daredevils Vs Kings XI

Kings XI Punjab 112 for 3 in 18.4 overs, beat Delhi Daredevils 111 all out by seven wickets at Kotla.

On a crumbling track, totally not suitable for a twenty twenty game, Delhi Daredevils, batting first crashed to a 111 all out in 19.4 overs. No worthwhile contribution from any one. Gambir made 26 of 12 and promptly ran himself out. He has made it a practice of sorts and is getting repeatedly run out. Gary Kirsten and Mahi need to talk to him on this issue before the WC T20. Mithun 26 of 28 and Kartik 17 of 35 were the other contributors. Irfan Pathan with 3 for 24 and Piyush Chawla 2 for 16 bowled well.

Kings XI Punjab, batted solidly for a change, and won with more than a over to spare. Good contributions from Mahel 38 of 35, Sangakara 33 of 30 and Yuvi 21 of 25, saw them through.

Collingwood with 2 for 19 and Mishra 1 for 15 were amongst the wickets. A good performance by the Kings XI. But is the recovery coming very late ?

The points table is becoming murkier, and difficult to predict. Whale of a time for Bookies and Betters.
