Pin It



Pacers Umesh Yadav and Morne shared seven wickets between them before David Warner slammed 79 as Delhi Daredevils registered a comprehensive six-wicket win over Kings XI Punjab to push them out of the Indian Premier League.

Delhi overhauled the 142-run target with 10 balls to spare and ensured that they end the league engagements on top of the table with 22 points, which means that they will have two chances to make it to the title clash.

Punjab needed to win Saturday’s contest to stay in play-off contention but putting up just 141 for eight did not help their cause.

Delhi’s win has also ensured Mumbai’s entry into the knockout stage as even if Mumbai lose Sunday’s match against Rajasthan Royals they will still end with 18 points, which is enough to get fourth position in the table.

Delhi’s win has also kept CSK in the hunt. If Bangalore lose on Sunday, they will be tied on 17 points with Chennai and the defending champions will sneak into the next stage due to better Net Run-Rate.

Warner’s blistering 44-ball knock was studded with 10 fours and four sixes while youngster Chand supported him well with his 24-ball knock, containing two sixes.

Warner was quite harsh on Parvinder Awana, whom he hit for three sixes and four in the seventh over. The Australian was dropped in the last ball of that over when he was on 46.
