IPL 2020, KXIP Vs DC Live Updates: Mohit Sharma got the first breakthrough for DC by cleaning up KXIP captain KL Rahul after he and Mayank Agarwal got off to a solid start in the run-chase in the second match of IPL 2020 in Dubai. Marcus Stoinis hit a flurry of boundaries towards the end, scoring 53 off 21 balls to power Delhi Capitals to 157 for 8 after being sent in to bat first by KXIP . Rishabh Pant and Iyer had put together a good stand after Mohammed Shami struck twice in one over but they too were dismissed in quick succession. It was Stoinis who then took matters in his own hands smashing everything out of the park to DC to a very good score, which once looked way out of their reach.

22:05 hrs IST Ashwin strikes off first ball

OUT! What a start by R Ashwin. He has got a wicket from his first ball in IPL 2020. Karun Nair the man dismissed. He will be disappointed with that shot. Went for the big sweep but got a top edge and was out caught at short fine leg.

22:03 hrs IST End of 5 overs

5 runs and the big wicket of KXIP captain KL Rahul from the Mohit Sharma over. Karun Nair has walked out to bat at No.3 for KXIP. They have reached 33 for 1.

21:59 hrs IST Mohit Sharma knocks over KL Rahul

BOWLED! Inside edge and onto the stumps. The ball came back in just enough and Rahul had a big gap between his bat pad. It’s a big wicket for DC and a much-needed one, Mohit Sharma provides the goods.

21:57 hrs IST Good over for KXIP

Two fours in the Anrich Nortje, both coming from KL Rahul’s bat. 9 runs coming from it and KXIP continue to lay foundation for the 158-run chase.

21:51 hrs IST IPL 2020, KXIP vs DC: End of 3rd over in KXIP chase

Good start from Kagiso Rabada, always on the money. 4 runs from the over. This is a solid start for KXIP. Just what was expected two mates KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal.

21:48 hrs IST Bowling change for DC

Kagiso Rabada has been introduced into the attack. A bit of a surprise here, thought Nortje deserved another over after his pacey first one but nevertheless we have Rabada in action now.

21:44 hrs IST KL Rahul hits first six of KXIP innings

SIX! KL Rahul makes full use of the free hit. It was just the ideal ball to go for the bug shot. Mohit Sharma bowled a half volley on leg stump and Rahul flicked it deep into the empty stands.

21:43 hrs IST A third umpire no ball

The siren goes off, that means the third umpire has spotted a no ball. It will be a free hit for KL Rahul.

21:38 hrs IST Leg byes, but first boundary for KXIP

FOUR! Straying delivery from Nortje, that was easy for Rahul to get away with. Soft touch off the pads, the ball just goes way out of reach of Rishabh Pant and races away to the boundary. Punjab are on the way.

21:35 hrs IST Chase begins

KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal begin KXIP’s 158-run chase. Anrich Nortje starts the attack for Delhi. HERE WE GO!

21:30 hrs IST Marcus Stoinis after his heroics

Marcus Stoinis: “I think the partnership that Shreyas had with Rishabh was important, we were in a tough spot there. We were sort of looking for 130-140 after the early wickets. [That last over for 30] Yeah it was handy, that can happen in cricket. A lot of bowlers are going wider to me these days, so I’ve got to work on that stuff. [Walking across the stumps] was part of the game plan.”

21:20 hrs IST End of DC innings

A lot of drama in the end. It was a no ball so DC had an extra ball and Nortje got 3 runs from it. DC finish with 157 for 8. 30 runs came from the final over of Chris Jordan.

21:18 hrs IST Marcus Stoinis hits 20-ball 50

Take a bow Marcus Stoinis - SIX, FOUR, FOUR, FOUR, FOUR, SIX and 1 in the last over before he got run out. He finishes with 53 off 21 balls.

21:13 hrs IST Marcus Sotinis hits another six

SIX! What a start to the final over. Stoinis walks across his stumps, and flicks it over square-leg for a six. This is turning out to be a fantastic innings from Stoinis and could well turn out to be match-turning one.

20:09 hrs IST Cottrell comes back to get Ashwin

OUT! Sheldon Cottrell makes a good comeback. He dismisses R Ashwin with a slower bouncer off the last ball of his spell and the salute is out. But the good thing for DC? Stoinis has got the strike for the last over, which will be bowled by Chris Jordan.

21:08 hrs IST Marcus Stoinis on the charge

A hat-trick of fours from Marcus Stoinis’ bat. Just what the doctor ordered for DC. Sheldon Cottrell suddenly doesn’t know what to do. His 3 balls have yielded 13 runs (one was a wide). DC now have hopes of making it to 140.

21:05 hrs IST KXIP vs DC live: 18 overs bowled

13 runs from Chris Jordan’s over. Some momentum at last for the Delhi Capitals. They have to make sure they get end their innings in a similar manner. The final 2 overs of the DC innings coming up.

21:03 hrs IST Marcus Stoinis on the charge

SIX! FOUR! Marcus Stoinis has decided to use the long handle. He doesn’t have many options to be honest here, only 3 overs are remaining in the innings and DC need all the runs they can.

20:52 hrs IST Ravi Bishnoi ends his spell on a high

What an over under pressure by young Bishnoi. Only 3 runs from the 16th over and Ravi Bishnoi has finished his spell with figures of 4 overs 1 for 22.

20:48 hrs IST Strategic time out, last five overs

7 runs and a wicket. Mohammed Shami finishes with his best figures in the IPL. 4 overs 3 wickets and only 15 runs, brilliant stuff from the KXIP spearhead. DC are at 93 for 5 with only 5 overs remaining. How many can they get? I’d say around 130 will be a good one.

20:43 hrs IST Mohammed Shami dismisses Shreyas Iyer

OUT! This is a big big wicket. Shreyas Iyer, the DC captain has been dismissed and guess who the bowler is? It’s Mohammed Shami. He can do no wrong today. It was a knuckle ball from the right-armer and Iyer mistimes it. He departs after a well-made 39.

20:40 hrs IST Ravi Bishnoi gets Rishabh Pant

BOWLED! First wicket of IPL for Ravi Bishnoi. He was hit for a four in the previous ball, now comes back to dismiss Pant. He pushed it wider, Pant went for the wild swing, got an inside edge and onto the stumps.

That moment when you pick up your maiden IPL wicket.

20:38 hrs IST Rishabh Pant joins the party

FOUR! All power there from Pant. This was just a bit straight from Bishnoi and Pant hits it straight over his head for a boundary.

20:34 hrs IST Shreyas Iyer hits back-to-back sixes

SIX! SIX! Out of the ground. Boy Shreyas Iyer can hit them big. What clean hitting. Minimal use of the feet and total power and timing. One straight over Gowtham’s head and the next one over long on. This is exactly what DC need now.

20:29 hrs IST Fifty partnership

Rishabh Pant takes a single and that brings up the fifty-run stand between him and DC captain Shreyas Iyer. It has come at a run-a-ball. They have done a good job so far but now need to accelerate in the last 8 overs to take DC over 130.

20:22 hrs IST Good start by Bishnoi, 10 overs bowled

A very good start by Ravi Bishnoi. He bowled a wide in his first ball but then finished the over on a high, giving just 3 more runs. We’re halfway through and DC are at 49 for 3.

20:19 hrs IST Ravi Bishnoi gets first over in IPL

India U19 leg-spinner Ravi Bishnoi has been thrown the ball. This will be his first over in the IPL. A big moment for the young leggie.

20:16 hrs IST End of 9 overs, KXIP ahead in 1st strategic time out

9 overs bowled. It’s time for the first strategic time out. This was the best over of DC’s innings. Pant started with a four and then Iyer hit a massive six. 13 runs came from it. But apart form this one, KXIP have been brilliant. If Pant and Iyer bat well from here and then we predict a score of around 135-140 for DC from here on.

20:13 hrs IST Shreyas Iyers hits first six of DC vs KXIP match

SIX! That went out of the world, 99 metres. Shreyas Iyer shows exactly what he can do when he gets his eyes in. A nice stride forward, holds his position and smacks it right from the middle of the bat. It lands deep into the stands.

20:11 hrs IST Another tight over for KXIP

Chris Jordan uses all his experience and bowls a very tidy over conceding only 5 runs in the over. We have to wait and see when Pant and Iyer decide to attack.

20:05 hrs IST End of 7 overs

Pretty good start from Gowtham. Only 4 runs from his first over. It’s only rebuilding now for DC. They need to first make sure there’s no further wickets and only then can Pant and Iyer go for their shots.

20:02 hrs IST Bowling change for KXIP

Off-spinner Krishnappa Gowtham has been introduced into the attack. This will be the firs sign of spin today, let’s see how he goes.

20:01 hrs IST DC vs KXIP: End of powerplay

Another fantastic over from Mohammed Shami, only two runs from it and he once again tested the batsmen with his pace and bounce. At the end of the powerplay DC are 23 for 3 with Prithvi Shaw and Shreyas Iyer in the middle. The powerplay has been KXIP’s, there is no doubt about that.

19:55 hrs IST Rishabh Pant and Shreyas Iyer the key for DC

FOUR! A cracking square cut from Rishabh Pant and that off the front foot. That’s what he brings to the table. He has to stitch a partnership with captain Shreyas Iyer. DC can still make a comeback in this match if Pant and Iyer fire. They have the all-rounders Marcus Stoinis, Axar Patel and Ashwin to follow.

19:52 hrs IST Another wicket for Shami

OUT! Mohammed Shami is on fire at the moment. What a snorter of a delivery. Hetmyer closed his bat a bit too early, got a leading edge and Maynak Agarwal took a simple catch in the covers. It’s a dream start for KXIP. They have reduced DC to 14 for 3 in 4 overs.

19:48 hrs IST Shami gets Shaw

OUT! A dreadful shot from Prithvi Shaw. He had played a few today but this time he gets a t]op edge, gets no timing at all and Chris Jordan makes no mistake at mid-on.

19:45 hrs IST 3 overs bowled

Brilliant over by Sheldon Cottrell. Just 1 run from it. The KXIP new-ball bowlers are all over the DC batsmen so far. They are 8 for 1 at the end of 3 overs after being sent in to bat.

19:41 hrs IST Gowtham drops Hetmyer

So near yet so far. It was a difficult chance but it just went away from the outstretched hands of Krishnappa Gowtham. Shimron Hetmyer survives. But what about Shami’s bowling? He looked like getting a wicket every ball

19:38 hrs IST Shikhar Dhawan out for a duck

OUT! A disastrous start for the Delhi Capitals. Shikhar Dhawan has been dismissed for a duck because of a duck. It was vicious bouncer from Mohammed Shami, Dahwan went for the pull, Rahul behind the stumps failed to gather it cleanly. But Dhawan went off for a single without even seeing where the ball is. Rahul then was smart enough to throw the ball back in time.

19:35 hrs IST First over bowled

It was an interesting first over from Sheldon Cottrell. It had a full toss, an outside edge for four and a few god length balls. DC scored five runs from it.

19:32 hrs IST Prithvi Shaw hits first four

FOUR! No slips and the ball flies to the third man boundary. Prithvi Shaw hits the first four of the DC vs KXIP match. It was fuller length delivery from Cottrell, Shaw went hard at it, got a thick outside edge and it flew to the fence.

19:31 hrs IST A full toss to start by Cottrell

Oh that was an interesting start to the DC vs KXIP match. Cottrell almost bowled a beamer to Prithvi Shaw. It was very close to being called a no ball.

19:29 hrs IST Prithvi Shaw to face first ball

Prithvi Shaw and Shikhar Dhawan have walked out in the middle. It will Prithvi Shaw who will face the first ball against Sheldon Cottrell.
