KXIP vs DD IPL 2018 Match 2 Result, Final Scorecard

Kings XI Punjab began their sojourn under R Ashwin's captaincy with a clinical six-wicket win over Gautam Gambhir's Delhi Daredevils in Mohali. A controlled innings which ensured, DD didn't succumb to the genius of Afghanistan sensation Mujeeb Ur Rahman who picked two wickets along with Mohit Sharma.

The live streaming of Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) vs Delhi Daredevils (DD) in the ongoing IPL 2018 tournament will be available online on Hotstar, Jio TV, and live telecast / broadcast on TV will be provided by Star Sports network. Delhi put a modest target of 167 for Punjab.

The former India opener took a liking to Axar Patel, smashing the spinner for a huge six over mid-off and hitting 14 off just three balls of the fourth over. "Me and AB getting out in two balls to a part-timer was game-changing as well". After he was dismissed in the 16th over, David Miller and Marcus Stoinis completed the formalities, taking their team past the finish line in the 19th over; KXIP won by 6 wickets.

The match didn't start well for DD as they lost Colin Munro inside the power play. This season, KXIP is looking a balanced side with Ashwin set for his maiden stint as captain of an IPL team.

There were two other batting performances of note in the match.

Delhi Daredevils: Gautam Gambhir (captain), Shreyas Iyer, Sandeep Lamichhane, Manjot Kalra, Glenn Maxwell, Amit Mishra, Mohammed Shami, Chris Morris, Colin Munro, Shahbaz Nadeem, Naman Ojha, Rishabh Pant, Harshal Patel, Jason Roy, Vijay Shankar, Prithvi Shaw, Rahul Tewatia, Jayant Yadav, Abhishek Sharma, Avesh Khan, Trent Boult, Daniel Christian, Sayan Ghosh, Gurkeerat Singh Mann. Tye and Boult will be the quicks to watch out for.

In the last season Delhi had finished sixth in the eight-team table while KXIP had missed last season's Playoffs by a whisker. I suppose even they are missing some big players.

"If you look at the difference of this side compared to our past squads, I think there is definitely a rise in standard".

However, the Delhi skipper did not get adequate support from his team mates. Brad Hodge said that the top-order batsman KL Rahul has taken up the challenge of delivering the dual role by keeping wickets, which gives the team more options. Yes, I didn't really realize that I had got a record, I had got to fifty because, like I said, I was just waiting for the ball to leave the bowler's hand and strike it.
