Delhi Daredevils Provide Kings XI a Chance To Stay Alive?

Two consecutive losses to the sixer hero Yuvraj Singh's Kings XI Punjab,there was some sort of relief to the Kings XI team as they won the encounter against Virender Sehwag's Delhi Daredevils here by 4 wickets.Thanks to some blistering knocks from the blades of Simon Katich And Yuvraj Singh.Probably this would be the last time that Simon Katich would be playing in this tournament.

And not to forget the beauty of V R V Singh's bowling.The pacer who was struggling with his bowling,was found to learn his lessons long before he was to be dropped from the side.The pacer took 3 crucial wickets giving away just 29 runs.This in addition to Simon Katich's 52 ball 75,which included 11 hits to the fence and one huge six on the onside.

But,as my usual comment goes,as far as the Delhi Daredevils' innings were concerned,there was nothing much to say,as the entire team's face was dependent on debutant Manoj Tiwary,who scored a handy 39 off 34 balls.

Some highlights that can be shown is the leg before appeal turned down by umpire Rudi Koertzen when Katich was on 26 off the bowling off Glenn McGrath.And then the three consecutive boundaries struck by Simon Katich off Glenn McGrath,followed by the same treatment to Mohd Asif.
