Beat Kings XI Punjab to snap their 11-match long losing streak

Opener Mayank Aggarwal and Yuvraj Singh struck half-centuries to help Delhi Daredevils beat Kings XI Punjab by five wickets and snap their 11-match long losing streak, spread over two editions. Chasing a challenging 166 for victory, Aggarwal (68) and Yuvraj (55) shared a 106-run stand for the third wicket to help their team win with one ball to spare.

Aggarwal, who was dropped on 42 by Sandeep Sharma off Mitchell Johnson, hit seven fours and two sixes in his 48-ball knock. Yuvraj smashed five boundaries and three sixes in his 39-ball innings, showing glimpses of his old form with some exquisite shots. Both Aggarwal and Yuvraj were out on consecutive deliveries in the 19th over but by that time Delhi needed just seven runs to win from 10 balls. Angelo Mathews knocked off the winning run — a four —off Axar Patel.

Coming together in the eighth over with the team at 53 for 2, Yuvraj and Aggarwal hit some lusty blows after getting themselves in. Aggarwal smashed Johnson for two fours and a six in the 15th over, and then Yuvraj joined the party by hitting two sixes off Axar Patel next over. Captain Duminy was unlucky to be run out after a promising start as he failed to reach the crease after a collision with Axar Patel who slid the ball on to the stumps.

Earlier, Virender Sehwag top-scored with a 41-ball 47 as Kings XI Punjab posted a competitive 165 for seven. The highlight of the Kings XI innings was the 71-run partnership for the second wicket between opener Sehwag and Wriddhiman Saha (39) after Murali Vijay was out for 19. Sehwag hit four boundaries and two sixes in his useful knock. He hit a six and two fours off successive balls off Imran Tahir in the ninth over. Kings XI were 73 for one at the halfway mark and they added 92 runs from the last 10 overs. For Delhi, leg-spinner Tahir grabbed three wickets, conceding 43 runs.
