11.49 pm IST: “Just doing the basics right. Got a decent start, not losing wickets in the first six. The wicket was on the slower side and we executed our plans well. On that wicket, it was important we gained momentum at the right time. Sanju and Billings provided a good start,” said Zaheer Khan. “We have good batters at the end, we have to provide a good foundation for them. Very dry. Especially Nadeem, the way he bowled, was crucial. I was also trying to bowl just cutters. Just holding our nerves and executing our plans well. So far so good. Hope to keep it going in the tournament.”
11.40 pm IST: “We were a bit behind with the bat. We probably gave 30 too many in conceding 188,” said KXIP captain Glenn Maxwell after their loss. “We let ourselves go and gave them too many boundary balls at the back end. We’re not executing well enough with the ball. We failed in all three facets of the game today. Axar continues to show he’s a superstar and Cariappa did well too.”

10.03 pm IST: AND NADEEM STRIKES! Traps Manan Vohra leg-before for 3. KXIP 5/1 in 1.4 overs.
10.02 pm IST: Shahbaz Nadeem in the attack. One of the most underrated bowlers but Delhi have done well to hold on to him.

8.54 pm IST: Comparatively better over from Axar Patel, concedes just seven. Delhi 90/2 after 11 overs. Billings 44, Iyer 21.

8.39 pm IST: Once again Wriddhiman Saha shows why he is the best wicketkeeper in India. Great stuff!

7:30 pm IST: Welcome to our live coverage. It’s approaching toss time at Kotla. We just saw Yami Gautam in action in the opening ceremony.
Delhi Daredevils will bank on their experienced bowling attack against Kings XI Punjab. KXIP’s batting has revolved around skipper Manan Vorha, Glen Maxwell and Hashim Amla.
Delhi Daredevils seem to be spoilt for choice when it comes to fast bowling options. In the first two matches of the 2017 Indian Premier League, they have gone with captain Zaheer Khan, Chris Morris and Pat Cummins.
However, there are two big names still waiting to play their first match this season - South Africa’s Kagiso Rabada and one of India’s premier fast bowlers — Mohammed Shami.
Kings XI Punjab have won 10 and lost eight in 18 previous matches played against Delhi Daredevils. They won home match against Delhi Daredevils last year while lost the away match against them.
Glenn Maxwell needs 12 runs to complete 1,000 runs for Kings XI Punjab in IPL. The right-handed batsman scored 988 runs at 26.70 with six fifites in 41 innings of as many matches for Kings XI Punjab since 2014.
