After Rahul''s exit Chris Gayle along with Agarwal scored quickly adding 35 runs for second wicket. It was Gayle''s power hitting strokes that left Deshpande awestruck for 4, 4, 6, 4, 6 bringing 26 runs in 5th over. But Gayle was stopped by Ashwin in 5.2 over taking his crucial wicket. Gayle quickfire 29 off 13 balls included 3 fours and 2 sixes.

In same over Agarwal was run out at 5, Punjab losing third wicket under 56 runs.

Earlier, DC won the toss and elected to bat first. Opener Shikhar Dhawan slammed his second successive unbeaten hundred taking his team to a challenging total. He also became the first player in the IPL''s 13-year history to smash back-to-back centuries. Dhawan also became the 5th player in IPL history to go past 5000 runs and join an elite list of players. RCB skipper Virat Kohli leads the list with 5759 runs, followed by CSK batsman Suresh Raina with 5368 runs. Rohit Sharma (5158) and David Warner (5037) are the other two players to make it to the elite list.

Delhi Capitals lost the wicket of Prithvi Shaw (7) in the 4th over bowled by Jimmy Neesham. Captain Shreyas Iyer came to bat next and joined opener Shikhar Dhawan in the middle. Iyer, who got off the mark with a six batted sensibly along with Dhawan as the duo took DC to 53-1 after the end of the powerplay. During the process, Iyer also completed his 2000 runs in IPL. On the other hand, Dhawan continued his brilliant run in the tournament and brought up his 40th IPL fifty and 3rd this season off just 28 balls. It was also his 4th 50-plus score in a row this season. DC?captain Shreyas Iyer (14) got out immediately after Dhawan''s fifty as M Ashwin provided the much-needed breakthrough for KXIP.

Dhawan was joined in the middle by Rishabh Pant. KXIP did well in the middle overs to contain DC batsmen with spinners Maxwell, Bishnoi, Ashwin. Pant struggled to time the ball as KXIP smartly used Maxi''s defensive bowling. Stoinis never got going and Hetmyer didn''t get many freebies as Shami and Arshdeep hit the yorker pretty consistently. However, Dhawan, who had scored an unbeaten 101 off 58 against Chennai Super Kings in their last match, clobbered 12 fours and three sixes in his 61-ball 106-run knock, took DC to 164. Mohammed Shami 2/28 and Jimmy Neesham 1/17 were the pick of the bowlers for KXIP.
