The Delhi Daredevils were utterly dominant during their 51-run victory over Kings XI Punjab in Saturday’s second match at the Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium in New Delhi.
Winning the toss and batting first, openers Sam Billings and Sanju Samson got the hosts off to a steady start with a half-century stand but Samson and Karun Nair were dismissed in quick succession as Delhi found themselves in a spot of bother.
Billings, though, kept going and brought up his first half-century of the season. Just when he looked all set for a big score, he found long-on while attempting a big hit against Axar Patel and was dismissed for 55.Some late fireworks from Corey Anderson who scored an unbeaten 39 from 22 deliveries and tiny cameos from Chris Morris and Pat Cummins saw Delhi amass 188-6 from their 20 overs. In reply, the visitors lost the wicket of Manan Vohra in just the second over of their innings and they were hardly in the game after that.
