Kings XI Punjab continued their impressive form as they edged out Delhi Daredevils by four runs in a closely-fought Indian Premier League encounter on Monday. Shreyas Iyer's brilliant half-century gave the hosts hope throughout as they needed five runs off the last ball. However, Iyer couldn't time the ball well and was dismissed for 57 runs. Chasing a low total of 143 runs, Delhi got off to a disastrous start as they lost three wickets in the first six overs. Prithvi Shaw (22) gave an ideal start to Delhi but skipper Gautam Gambhir yet again failed to capitalise on the good start. Glenn Maxwell (12) also fell prey to a poor shot and was dismissed. Iyer along with Rahul Tewatia (24) tried their best but eventually Delhi fell short by four runs. (Scorecard)

Earlier, a fine bowling display by Delhi helped them restrict Punjab to 143/8 in their IPL clash. Liam Plunkett was the star bowler as he finished with bowling figures of 3/17 in his four overs. He took the important wicket of Lokesh Rahul (23), Mayank Agarwal (21) and Karun Nair (34). These three batsmen have been in good nick of late and they yet again played their part. Lack of partnerships for Kings XI Punjab hurt them as the Delhi bowlers were terrific throughout. Trent Boult (2/21) and Avesh Khan (2/36) also bowled well for Delhi. Punjab batsmen got off to starts but couldn't materialise and convert into big scores.

That concluded the formalities from this game. Punjab have another win and with this, they move to the top of the table. Delhi suffer yet another loss and are really staring down the barrel. They need a string under their belts and they need it fast. Done with this, we move on to the next. Tomorrow, Mumbai play Hyderabad at the Wankhede Stadium, at 2000 local (1430 GMT). Join in for that. Cheers, people!

Ankit Rajpoot receives the Man of the Match Award. His outstanding spell at the start of the innings was vital in Punjab stifling Delhi in the run chase, thereby gaining the upper hand in their subsequent victory.

Shreyas Iyer was the only one who kept the fight going and is the sole reason for taking the game to the last ball. Delhi lost 3 wickets in the Powerplay and the pressure mounted right from there. Except for the Iyer-Tewatia partnership consisting of 47, none of the others were of note. If even one other batsman had dug in and stayed with Iyer, things might have turned out differently. The host suffer another loss, this time in their own den.

The Ravichandran Ashwin-led side has another win under its belt. Defended yet another total, one which wasn't too big, with class. The batting had been winning them games till now. It was underwhelming tonight, but the bowling department came to the rescue. With just 143 on the board, the visitors needed a big performance with the ball and the entire unit stood up. Barring the skipper, who was economical himself, everyone chipped in with the wickets and kept it relatively tight as well.

Mujeeb Ur Rahman to Shreyas Iyer

OUT! Iyer departs! Heartbreak for the young man. He tries to clear long off after going deep in his crease. Slaps it over extra cover and Finch out in the deep moves to his left and takes it comfortably. PUNJAB WIN BY 4 RUNS!

Mujeeb Ur Rahman to Shreyas Iyer

FOUR! It's all going down the wire. Iyer picks up a boundary. This is superb. Short ball, Iyer walks down the track and pulls it fine past the diving short fine leg fielder for a boundary. 5 needed off the last ball. Biggie to win, a boundary means a Super Over. What do we have in store for us?

Mujeeb Ur Rahman to Shreyas Iyer

Fuller on the stumps, Shreyas swings across the line and lofts it over mid-wicket. Both batsmen run hard and they are able to take the second run with some aid from the fielder in the deep who misfields.

Mujeeb Ur Rahman to Shreyas Iyer

Dot ball. Iyer slaps this down towards long off, but the execution isn't perfect. Iyer wants to keep strike. Doesn't run.

Mujeeb Ur Rahman to Shreyas Iyer

SIX! 8th Indian T20 League fifty for Shreyas Iyer! He's keeping his side in the hunt here. It's short and flat, hammered downtown, over long off for a maximum. 11 off 4 needed.

Mujeeb Ur Rahman to Shreyas Iyer

Short and flat, spinning in, Iyer looks to pull but gets it off the pads towards short fine leg.
