Credit for DD s batting collapse goes to KXIP s pacer Sandeep Sharma, who bowled an excellent spell of 4 overs with four crucial wickets of Sanju Samson, Sam Billings, Shreyas Iyer and Kagiso Rabada. Sandeep conceded only 20 from his spell and this was second four-for in IPL. Besides Sandeep, Akshar Patel and Varun Aaron picked two wickets, while skipper Glenn Maxwell and Mohit Sharma scalped one each.

KXIP chased down this low total in just 7.5 overs without losing any wicket. Opener Martin Guptill scored his maiden IPL fifty. KXIP’s won this match with 73 balls remaining, which is their largest margin victory in terms of balls remaining and 3rd largest by any team after Kochi Tuskers Kerala (won by 76 balls remaining against Rajasthan Royals in 2011) and Mumbai Indians (won by 87 balls remaining against Kolkata Knight Riders in 2008).
