In the 18th match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2018, R Ashwin's Kings XI Punjab thrashed Kolkata Knight Riders by nine wickets in a rain-truncated match at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata on Saturday.
Just when Kings began to entertain hopes of a win, Shreyas (57 off 45 balls) nearly turned the match on its head.
His effort was all the more commendable considering the fact that he had been expensive in the game until that point. Delhi failed to do so despite Iyer whacking Mujeeb for a straight six and a four.
Rejection of impeachment motion destroyed legitimate process of law: Sibal
The third ground on which he rejected the motion, was that the MPs had violated the Handbook for Members of Rajya Sabha. Naidu acts at BJP rep rather than VP", was his another tweet on the issue of rejection of impeachment motion.
The first ball was a quick fizzer, which cramped Iyer for room and hit his thigh pad. Gautam Gambhir departs for a 13 ball four. Delhi needed five off the final ball, but Iyer could only pick out Finch at extra cover to signal the end to an entertaining low-scoring contest.
IPL 2018, Delhi Daredevils vs Kings XI Punjab will be broadcast on Star Sports 1, Star Sports 1 HD, Star Sports Select 1, Star Sports Select 1 HD, Star Sports Hindi 1, Star Sports Hindi I HD. None of the Kings XI batsmen were able to post big totals as they seemed to miss their big hitter Chris Gayle who was left out of the squad due to injury concerns. The decision paid dividends as Avesh Khan sent Aaron Finch packing for cheap. The loss means the Daredevils are now in clear last position at the bottom of the table with a 1-5 record, while Glenn Maxwell's failure to fire in the second innings added another poor return to the Aussies's 2018 IPL campaign. KL Rahul flicks it fine for a four.
Narine claimed Rahul in the following over, top-edging a pull to mid-wicket but the victory remained straightforward with Gayle at the crease.

When Trump was elected as president , West was photographed with him at Trump Towers in NY . Reactions to West's tweet ranged from dismissive to contemptuous.
Going 31 balls without a boundary is just inexcusable in T20s, especially after a rickety start. Later, a well-set Karun Nair holed out to Shreyas at long-on. However, Iyer and Rahul Tewatia had other ideas. So, Nair decided to make up for it against pace. Plunkett, however, did not offer pace: another offcutter dismissed another Karnataka batsman.
All in all, the visitors might have a slight advantage over the hosts, as they will be boosted by the form of KL Rahul, who scored 60 runs in the last match. Given the frame they have appeared in the past experiences, Kings XI Punjab will extravagant their odds to proceed with the force against a beset Delhi Daredevils equip. Delhi Daredevils' just triumph has come against Mumbai Indians when English opener Jason Roy and the dynamic Rishabh Pant let go.
