    Another game and another last ball thriller. It was always a risk to bowl a spinner in the last over and that too Mujeeb who doesn’t have alot of experience. But he did it and he did it well. Kept him calm after being smashed for 12 off the first 5 balls as Finch took the catch of Shreyas Iyer on the last ball securing a win for KXIP by 4 runs.

    DD are 7 down now. Pressure on Iyer, can Sran win it for KXIP from here? The match is going to the last ball for sure.

    Trouble for DD. They need a partnership here very desperately. Punjab on the other end are finding one way or the other to pick wickets. DD need to win this one.

    OUT! DD in big trouble here both Maxwell and Gambhir are back in the pavilion. The responsibility has come back to Rishabh Pant and Shreyas Iyer.

  • 10:12 PM IST

    Prithvi Shaw has provided DD the start they wanted before getting out to Ankit Rajpoot. Glenn Maxwell has come down to bat at number 3 ahead of Pant and Iyer. Can he prove the decision right?

  • 9:41 PM IST

    DD need 144 and it seems the 5 changes have worked for them. They could have reduced the total if they would have caught Miller on the first attempt. The important thing to look here is now the spot at which Prithvi Shaw bats.

    OUT! DD are doing well here. Finally someone catches the ball hit by David Miller and he has to depart for 26. What will the final score be?

  • 8:52 PM IST

    Yuvraj and Karun have hed fort here but aren’t finding ways to score quick runs. DD bowlers have done well to keep things tight. Both the batmen are scoring less than run a ball.

  • 8:40 PM IST

    OUT! Plunkett is doing well for DD here. He has picked up his second wicket and this time he has done the batsmen with the pace. Yuvraj Singh walks in the middle, he needs to play a responsible knock here.

  • 8:24 PM IST

    OUT! Big wicket for Punjab! KL Rahul departs for 23. Rahul had hit a six previously in the similar fashion but the pace was taken off this time. Punjab are 2 down as Karun Nair comes to bat.

  • 8:04 PM IST

    KL Rahul and Aaron Finch in the middle for KXIP. Tent Boult to start the proceedings for DD. Can Dd turn their fortunes from this match? Prithvi Shaw has been given a chance in the squad today. Hope they use it better than how KKR uses Shubman Gill.

Hello and welcome to CricketCountry’s live coverage of the VIVO IPL2018. Delhi Daredevils (DD) will take on Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) in the Match 22 at Feroz Shah Kotla, Delhi. We will be bringing you live updates, scores and interesting tweets from the world of cyberspace. Both teams are languishing at the bottom half of the points table. The match 22 of the tournament will see DD taking on KXIP in their own backyard. DD have had a poor start to the league by winning only one game out of five. They are right at the bottom of the table with only two points. Whereas, KXIP are second in the list sharing same points(8) with table toppers Chennai Super Kings (CSK) but are low on run rate. The positive for DD have been their retained players performances. Both, Sreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant are performing consistently in the tournament so far. Pant ranks fifth in the list of orange cap with 223 runs to his name in five matches. Whereas, Chris Gayle has been the trump card for KXIP. Playing only three games he has already scored 229 runs with a strike rate of 170. KL Rahul is just getting better game by game having scored 213 runs already. In the two captains Gautam Gambhir has more experience but Ravichandran Ashwin is seem to do a fairly good job.
