Batting first for the first time in the tournament, Delhi lost wickets regularly before Manoj Tiwary (39) and Dinesh Karthik (24) made some valuable contributions. Though Gambhir (18), Shoaib Malik (19) R Bhatia (19), Maharoof (18) too
got good starts, none of them managed to it to big scores.
For Kings XI, apart from VRV--who the wrecker in chief and scalped three Delhi batsmen,
Pathan bagged three wickets as Brett Lee and Yuvraj managed one wicket each.
Earlier, Delhi Daredevils won the toss and decided to bat first against Kings XI Punjab in the 13th match of the IPL.
Daredevils were unchanged as Kings 11 Punjab have made a couple of changes. Ramnaresh Sarwan made way for for a foreign player, Simon Katich, while Tanmay Srivastava comes in for Sunny Sohal.
