Vivo IPL Live Score, DD vs KXIP: Prithvi Shaw, Glenn Maxwell Depart Early for DD vs KXIP

IPL, Delhi Daredevils vs Kings XI Punjab Live Score: Punjab posted 143/8 in 20 overs

A fine bowling show by Delhi Daredevils (DD) helped them restrict Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) to 143/8 in their Indian Premier League (IPL) clash on Monday. Liam Plunkett was the superstar bowler as he finished with bowling figures of 3/17 in his four overs. He took the main wicket of Lokesh Rahul (23), Mayank Agarwal (21) and Karun Nair (34). These 3 batsmen have been in excellent nick of late and they yet again played their part. Lack of partnerships for Kings XI Punjab hurt them as the Delhi bowlers were great throughout. Trent Boult (2/21) and Avesh Khan (2/36) also bowled well for Delhi. Punjab batsmen got off to starts but could not appear and convert into big scores.

KXIP win by 4 runs

* Kings XI Punjab

*Delhi Daredevils

They were completed in by the versatile AB de Villiers' smashing knock last night and up next at the Feroz Shah Kotla, Daredevils will be up alongside the destructive Gayle, who has made a announcement with two fifties and century, scoring those runs in his trademark style.
Thanks to Gayle's fierceness, Kings XI Punjab are firmly placed at the top of the order with four victories and a solitary overcome.
Given the form they have shown in the before encounters, Kings XI Punjab will fancy their chances to continue the momentum alongside an embattled Delhi Daredevils outfit.

Royal Challengers Bangalore chasing down a target of 175 with two overs to standby is more of a reflection of Daredevils' poor team choice rather than helplessness.
To begin with, they lost to Kings XI Punjab in their away game, were then subjected to a shameful defeat by Kolkata Knight Riders, emerged 2 best against Rajasthan Royals under the Duckworth/Lewis method and faced one more reverse at the Chinnaswamy Stadium.
Delhi Daredevils' only win has come against Mumbai Indians when English opener Jason Roy and the dynamic Rishabh Pant fired.
In actuality, wicketkeeper Pant has been their best batsman this time with 223 runs from five games.
Recurring to his home city franchise, skipper Gautam Gambhir would look to get his scoring touch back, after a hugely victorious stint at Kolkata Knight Riders.
So is the case with the big-hitting Australian Glenn Maxwell, while Shreyas Iyer, who scored a brisk half-century in opposition to RCB, would look to carry on in same vein.
Delhi Daredevils bowling has been an issue with Mohammed Shami sour colour.

Trent Boult had straight figures in all the matches but likes of Shahbaz Nadeem, Mohammed Shami have flattered to trick.
The logic of playing Vijay Shankar is still not clear as the team organization is not able to send him up the order for lack of power in his shots. Even more baffling is the reality that he has not been called upon to bowl in four of the five games.
The work is certainly going to be difficult when up against Gayle and team, with the Jamaican forming a deadly chance combination with KL Rahul.
India remove Yuvraj Singh would hope to get some runs below his bat, too, even as KL Rahul is asserting himself as a potent opener in straight format with two brisk half centuries.
And how can one discount the attendance of Aaron Finch, who has the ability to destroy any bowling attack on his day.
All-rounder Ravichandran Ashwin, along with Mohit Sharma, lend depth to the line-up, while the likes of Barinder Sran, Andrew Tye and Mujeeb ur Rahman shoulder the bowling responsibility.
