Chasing 167, Delhi Capitals were cruising at 144 for 3 in 16.3 overs. Then came the capitulation. Kings XI Punjab took seven wickets in 17 balls, leaving Delhi 15 short of their target. Mohammed Shami and Sam Curran were the heroes for Kings XI with their bowling at the death.
Curran, playing only his second IPL game, was the Man of the Match. He scored 20 off 10 balls and took 4 for 11, including a hat-trick, off 2.2 overs.
Hahaha that was insane! Super proud, what a game @CurranSM— Tom Curran (@_TC59) April 1, 2019
YESSSSSSSSS, @CurranSM!— Kevin Pietersen (@KP24) April 1, 2019
Curran revealed he wasn't aware that he had taken a hat-trick.
There were celebrations in the Kings XI camp.
And some puns.
It was the second straight chase that Delhi Capitals failed to close out. Against Kolkata Knight Riders, though, they went on to win in the Super Over.
