IPL 2020 LIVE SCORE, DC vs KXIP Match: Rahul, Agarwal guide Punjab to a steady start
After 3 overs KXIP 19/0 (Rahul 11, Mayank 1)
Alright bowling change already as Rabada comes into the attack, replacing his countryman Nortje. He is bowling back of the length, clocking up good pace. Overall, good over for DC. Just five off it. This is a quiet start from Rahul and Mayank.
After 2 overs KXIP 14/0 (Rahul 9, Mayank 0)
Mohit Sharma bowls from the other end, so no Rabada yet. Lovely push through the covers by Rahul for two runs in the over. Next ball was a lovely outswinger but the third umpire called it a no ball. Result: six runs off Rahul's bat. That was the poorest of poor free hit deliveries from a pacer. Right in the slot for Rahul, who smashed it over the deep mid-wicket ropes. Good over for Punjab after just 5 in the first. Nine off it.

SIX! Free Hit and here goes KL Rahul, poor from Mohit, right in Rahul's slot and he hammers it over deep mid-wicket for a big one. Clean hit!

After 1 over KXIP 5/0 (Rahul 1, Mayank 0)
Nortje bowls the first over. Starts off with two dots. He is right on money from the ball number 1, not giving room to Rahul to open up. Four leg byes fetched off the fourth ball as he went a little down the leg stump line. He is building up good pace as well is Nortje. Just one error in the over, those four byes. Five off the over.

Alright then, we are back with the chase. KL Rahul takes strike and at the other end is good friend Mayank Agarwal. Pacer Anrich Nortje, on IPL debut, to start things off for Delhi. Let's get this chase rolling.
First 17 overs : 100/6 (RR - 5.88) Last 3 overs: 57/2 (RR - 19.00)
Marcus Stoinis (53 off 21 balls): Once we lost a few early wickets, we were looking for the 130-140. (On final over) That was handy, that can happen in cricket. I thought they bowled well throughout. We’ve got a good bowling attack. A lot of bowlers going wide at me these days, so I’ve had a bit of work on that stuff. Once I get a read on that sort of thing (opposition’s plans), I look to target a few areas.
