A comprehensive win for Zaheer and his lads. Once Corey Anderson produced the big finish to take DD to 188, KXIP were always up against it. It was a score which has never been chased down here, right through the history of IPL. Punjab needed a good start with the bat. But Shahbaz Nadeem ensured that the visitors were always playing catch up as he struck in consecutive overs in powerplay.
Morgan looked good but he found the fielder at the wrong time. Miller played a painful innings which shot the rate up beyond 12 even before Maxwell came to the crease. It was too much pressure against a quality attack. Mishra sealed the deal dismissing the Punjab skipper for a duck. Axar Patel played a good little knock towards the end but it was always going to be in a losing cause.
