NEW DELHI, April 28: The 'Bombay school of batting' is something most in Indian cricket circles would swear by to produce results. What transpired at Feroz Shah Kotla on Friday night, however, was two young batsmen regarded as the torchbearers of batting in Mumbai, defying the no-nos in the book of the purists to ignite some hope in Delhi Daredevils camp to get on a roll.
A fresh track at Feroz Shah Kotla, for Delhi Daredevils' first home game of the season, had plenty to offer for the pacers and appeared one of the quickest wickets so far in IPL 2018. Using that to their advantage Daredevils managed to restrict Kings XI Punjab to 143 for 8, thanks to the efforts of Liam Plunkett and Avesh Khan. However, it was a combination of pace and spin that did the trick for Kings XI Punjab as they overcame a Shreyas Iyer half-century to top the table with a four-run win.
