Highlights

00:19 (IST)

That's the end of the first double-header of the weekend and we had two mouth-watering contests today. In the first match, Rajasthan beat Mumbai Indians in the last-over finish. And then, DC beat KXIP in the evening match to collect two more points and move closer to the last-4 spot. 

We will catch you tomorrow again. In the afternoon match, SRH play KKR at Hyderabad and then RCB host CSK at M Chinnaswamy stadium. See you tomorrow. For now, good night and good bye. 

00:11 (IST)

Shreyas Iyer, DC captain: Satisfying win after losing 3 home games. we recovered really well. Shikhar got a good start. Was not an easy wicket to chase. Pitch isn't suitable for the kind of batsmen we have in the team. Important for us to finish the game. Today I took on the responsibility. Lamichhane is a confident lad. Amit Mishra helps him with his experience. Dhawan is giving us brilliant starts. Today we got 60 in first 6 overs and it gave us momentum. I just want to continue this run in future matches. 

23:59 (IST)

Ravi Ashwin, KXIP skipper: I thought it was just below par. It was quite hard to hit off the spinners. Lost too many wickets in the middle. Someone like Mujeeb is a very important player for us, and its quite unfortunate. We've got quite a few talents in the dressing room we can back. Unfortunately, we didn't have the runs on the board today. I thought we were giving one or two of those soft boundaries every now and then. Credit to Shreyas Iyer. He held his nerve. (On Brar) He's someone who's come a long way. Gives us quite a few options moving forward in the tournament. We need to catch the momentum now. 

23:58 (IST)

This is also first win for DC against KXIP in five matches.

23:58 (IST)

This is Delhi’s second victory at home from five matches this season.

DC vs KXIP Expert's Voice

Delhi Capitals are making a habit of this sort of sudden middle-order collapses during a run-chase. However, in the end they have finished at the right side tonight. And the bulk of the credit for this triumph needs to be given to their skipper Iyer, who has batted with utmost sensibility to collect crucial two points from this fixture. In hindsight, KXIP bowlers showed tremendous fighting spirits to drag the game till the last over, despite being handicapped by the dew for the major part of their bowling effort.

IPL 12 Match 37 DC vs KXIP at the Feroz Shah Kotla Ground in Delhi: GAME OVER! DC win by 5 wickets.

Huge relief in DC camp as they finally hold their nerve and win a close battle.

IPL 2019, DC vs KXIP, Today's Match Preview: Delhi Capitals (DC) take on Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) at the Feroz Shah Kotla in the evening fixture of Saturday's double-header, this being the second meeting between the two sides in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2019.

Delhi looked set to cruise to an easy victory in their previous outing against Kings XI at the Mohali, before Rishabh Pant's dismissal sparked a spectacular collapse that saw them lose their last seven wickets for just eight runs. Newcomer Sam Curran collected a hat-trick along the way to seal a 14-run victory for the home team.

What will further bolster KXIP's hopes ahead of the upcoming clash is Delhi's poor record at their home ground so far in the season. Barring a victory in the Super Over against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), Delhi have struggled at the Kotla, having lost the other three home matches that have taken place so far, including a 40-run hiding at the hands of Mumbai Indians (MI) on Thursday that resulted in them slipping down a place to third in the points table.

KXIP enter the match on the back of a away victory against Rajasthan Royals, beating them by 12 runs at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in an encounter that saw the Kings XI attack restrict the run flow for the opposition batsmen, especially aggressive opener Jos Buttler, and will be the side that will have the mental edge in Saturday's encounter.
