- Kings XI Punjab defeated Delhi Daredevils by 10 wickets.
- Sandeep Sharma was the pick of the bowlers for KXIP.
Kings XI Punjab thrashed Delhi Daredevils by 10 wickets and the cricket fans cannot stop talking about it. Yet again, Delhi Daredevils were outplayed in a fashion that they would have never imagined. It only becomes further difficult for a team that has been struggling right from the start of the tournament despite having a number of opportunities to turn things around.
KXIP had won the toss and had pushed Delhi Daredevils to bat first on a tricky wicket. Believe it or not, the Daredevils were bundled out for a paltry total of 67 runs in less than 20 overs. Only three players could cross the 10-run mark and that was absolutely shocking.
Sandeep Sharma picked up four wickets and he could not be happier. He was even adjudged the man of the match for his incredible performance with the ball. The swinging new ball has always been his forte and he could not agree more.
"We just did everything right and it was a flawless performance from the entire team. For me personally, this has to be the most cherished moment. It definitely wasn't a wicket where you ended up on 67. It was a pitch where batsman had to be judicious in their shot-making," Sandeep Sharma was quoted as saying by The Times of India.
Things became much more difficult for the Daredevils as the race to the playoffs looks almost impossible for them. However, they still have a chance of making it to the playoff stage but it is not going to be easy if they continue to play in this fashion.
