Shreyas Iyer, Shikhar Dhawan notched up brilliant half-centuries as Delhi Capitals defeated Kings XI Punjab by 5 wickets in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2019 at the Feroz Shah Kotla on Saturday. In the chase, the hosts lost Prithvi Shaw early due a mix-up with his fellow opener Dhawan. Unperturbed by the dismissal, Dhawan and Iyer forged a key partnership and laid the foundation of their win. In the middle-order Colin Ingram contributed 19 runs off nine balls to assure DC cross over the line with ease. Earlier, Chris Gayle (69) scored his 28th half-century as Kings XI Punjab scored 163/7. Put in to bat, the visitors got off to a poor start as they lost KL Rahul (12) in the second over. Gayle continued his onslaught on the opposition bowlers from the other end. His 37-ball knock was laced with six boundaries and five hits over the fence. However, following the dismissal, only Mandeep Singh (30) played made a key contribution to the side. For Delhi Capitals, Sandeep Lamichhane was the pick of the bowlers, returning figures of three for 40. (SCORECARD)
