Pat Cummins delivers for Delhi in IPL

Pat Cummins delivers for Delhi in IPL

It was the last ball of the 19th over, and Axar Patel delivered it with the singular goal of denying Anderson a hit into his favourite on-side areas. All-rounder Chris Morris can also take wickets when needed.

Young Samson started the onslaught from the first over when he flicked medium pacer Sandeep Sharma for four down the legs before adding another to bring up eight runs.

Axar Patel has taken only three wickets in three matches so far but a miserly economy rate of just 6.25 indicates he's not an easy bowler to smash away. It was important that we accelerate at the right time and the start was good from Samson and Billings.

Morris picked up the wicket of Cariappa (1) at the beginning of a final over that would have to had contained several extra deliveries for the Kings XI to have any hope of victory as they still needed 55 runs to win. The flat-bat hit met the ball close to the bottom of Anderson's bat, but he swung with enough bat-speed to clear the leaping fielder at long-on.

After winning the toss, Delhi Daredevils made a decision to bat first and posted a respectable total of 188 runs for 6 in stipulated 20 overs. In the last 5 overs, however, KXIP added 68 runs, thanks to Corey Anderson's 22-ball 39. In the middle order, it is presumed that Wriddhiman Saha is perhaps to find a place along with David Miller and skipper Glenn Maxwell. Anderson gives fans something to cheer about with two sixes and two fours in four consecutive balls.

Sunrisers captain David Warner (26) and Dhawan put on 45 runs in the first six overs, but both departed by the 10th over with the total at 59.

Delhi Daredevils batsman Corey Anderson plays a shot during an IPL match against Kings XI Punjab at Ferozshah Kotla in New Delhi on Saturday.

The Daredevils boast one of the best and in-form attacks with Pat Cummins and Chris Morris coming into the IPL after solid showing in domestic and global cricket and the experienced Zaheer Khan leading the pace attack while Amit Mishra has been in good touch so far as well.

Kolkata: With Glenn Maxwell at the helm and Virender Sehwag the mentor, it's not surprising that Kings XI Punjab should show some of the dare and dash of the duo.

Delhi Daredevils: 53/1, Sanju Samson (6.5 overs); 55/2, Karun Nair (7.3 overs); 96/3, Shreyas Iyer (11.5 overs); 103/4, Sam Billings (12.5 overs); 120/5, Rishabh Pant (15.1 overs); 151/6, Chris Morris (17.5 overs). Pat Cummins ends the DD's innings with a brilliant six in the last ball of the 20th over.
