Cape Town: Goel top-scored with 38 to lift the Kings XI Punjab to 104-7 in the rain curtailed match against Delhi Daredevils at Cape Town on Sunday.

Put into bat by Daredevils captain Virender Sehwag in a match curtailed to just 12 overs a side, Kings XI Punjab had made a flying start with their opening batsmen Karan Goel and Ravi Boppara coming out all guns blazing.

Their adventurous approach with the bat saw them swizzle past the 50 run-mark in just the 5th over.

Vettori took 3 wickets as Kings XI Punjab lost their way in the middle of their innings. Vettori trapped Bopara plumb in front of the wicket by his very first delivery, there was no turn in the delivery but Vettori gave it enough air to decieve Bopara who hit 2 sixes in his 22-run knock that came off 16 balls.

Vettori then struck in his next over when he had Kumar Sangakkara (8) caught by Dirk Nannes at short fine leg. Yuvraj Singh (16) was run out in Vettori's next over. Yuvraj tried to sweep, did not connect, Mahela Jayawardene called him for a quick single, wicket keeper Dinesh Karthik's throw went straight into the hands of Vettori who removed the bails.
