A small correction before closing this, Kings XI Punjab had put up a target of 143 only. Nevertheless, it was a matured knock from Gambhir keeping his cool when the chips were down and ensuring that his side almost got home.
Delhi Daredevils have defeated the hosts Kings XI Punjab by 5 wickets with just the one ball to spare. Quite a moderate scoring match it was, Kings XI putting up a target of 147 only. Their bowling didn't have the firepower with the exception of Sreesanth. For Delhi Daredevils, it was all about keeping the wickets in hand and their Skipper Gambhir steered them through with a long innings of 72.
