Kings XI pull off miraculous victory after Curran heroics

1st April 2019, 19:47 by Neil Foster

Kings XI Punjab beat Delhi Capitals by 14 runs in an incredible finish, with England's Sam Curran taking four wickets.

The young all-rounder ran through the lower order as Delhi fell from a position of strength at 144-3 to be all out for 152.

They lost seven wickets for the addition of just eight runs after Kings XI had totalled 166-9 from their 20 overs.

David Miller topped scored with 43 for Kings, while Sarfaraz Khan hit 39 and Mandeep Singh an unbeaten 29 in what looked a gettable score for the opposition.

That appeared to be the case as Capitals were cruising after Shikhar Dhawan made 30 and captain Shreyas Iyer scored 28.

Rishabh Pant and Colin Ingram had taken the score on to 144, with only 23 required from 20 balls when the former was dismissed for 39.

That prompted a disastrous collapse as Chris Morris was run out next ball for a duck. Ingram followed next over for 38 and the rest of the line-up folded like the proverbial pack of cards.

Curran took 4-11 and Mohammed Shami claimed 2-27.
