Kings XI Punjab pulled off a terrific comeback from out of nowhere to defeat Delhi Capitals by 14 runs in Mohali on Sunday. Sam Curran’s all-round performance was the highlight in Punjab’s third win in the ongoing IPL 2019. He scored a quickfire 20 off 10 before finishing the match with a spectacular hat-trick.
Last 17 balls, 8 runs, 7 wickets – that is how Punjab changed the phase of the game. Even until the presence of Rishabh Pant and Colin Ingram with their gritty 50-plus stand, DC were well on track to reach the target of 167. But then, Mohammed Shami scalped two, Curran picked four and Ashwin inflicted a stellar run-out dismissal to fold Delhi 14 runs short of the mark.
