IPL, Highlights - Kings XI Punjab vs Delhi Daredevils: Marcus Stoinis' All-Round Show Guides KXIP To A Nine-Run Win Over DD
A gritty half-century from Marcus Stoinis followed by three crucial wickets with the ball proved to be the X-Factor in Kings XI Punjab's nine-run win over Delhi Daredevils at Mohali. Catch all the highlights of this match here.
After being put in to bat, Kings XI Punjab got off to a good start as their skipper Murali Vijay and Marcus Stoinis added 45 runs for the first wicket. Delhi Daredevils then got rid off Vijay and Hashim Amla in quick succession to pull things back. But Stoinis and Wriddhiman Saha played sensibly and got to their fifties as the hosts finished their innings on 181/5. In reply, Quinton de Kock and Sanju Samson played good knocks for tourists but it didn't prove enough as some tight bowling from Stoinis and other bowlers towards the end helped Punjab seal their third win of the season.

23:58 hrs IST:That's it. Thank you for joining us today. See you all tomorrow for the 4pm game between Mumbai Indians and Sunrisers Hyderabad. Until then, it's goodbye. Cheers!Â
Marcus Stoinis (Man of the Match):"The beauty about somebody going hard at you is that you have a chance to take wickets. We will have to keep preparing and keep training."
Murali Vijay (KXIP skipper):"We badly wanted this win. I can't ask more than this because they gave it everything. We said 170 was par and we got 10 runs extra. There was dew factor but amazing bowling from the bowlers. I just told them to keep believing in their skills and not think about the batsmen."
Zaheer Khan (DD skipper): "It was a good game. 180 was just about par and I thought we had it under control. The ball was reversing and good death-bowling I would say. It is a big ground and few errors on the field are bound to happen. Overall, I felt the wicket was playing well."

19:05 hrs IST: Good evening and a warm welcome to the 36th match of Indian Premier League season 9. Kings XI Punjab take on Delhi Daredevils at Mohali tonight.Â
On paper, Daredevils are overwhelming favourites against a Kings XI Punjab side, which has neither shown stomach for a fight nor any kind of proper teamwork to take on the opposition.
More so, the mistakes have been repeated, they have pressed the panic button by replacing David Miller with Murali Vijay as the skipper, which has done little to change the fortune of their team.
Moreover, injury to their most trusted batsman Shaun Marsh has also hampered their progress. However, his replacement Amla is most likely to make his debut for KXIP, and that might be a boon for the side.
On the other hand, the positive aspect of the Daredevils team however has been their ability to stick to the basics and a testimony to the fact is their five wins so far.
Delhi would hope Zaheer gets back into action quickly as he has managed to get early breakthroughs and has been impressive in the death overs in some of the matches.
Also his captaincy and the role of a bowling mentor that he executes in a wonderful manner was missed in the last match.
Another man who was missed was their batting mainstay Quinton De Kock, who has been scoring runs consistently. De Kock was given a much-needed rest so that he could cope up with the gruelling schedule.
