IPL 2017, Match 36: Sandeep Sharma, Martin Guptill destroy Delhi Daredevils as Kings XI Punjab register thumping 10-wicket win

Lacking quality in batting department with confidence hitting the lowest ebb, Daredevils batting looked like a rudderless ship with none of the batsmen getting past 20-run mark. The highest individual score was 18 from Corey Anderson.

SCORECARD || FULL COVERAGE || AS IT HAPPENED

Mohali: In one of the most pathetic batting performances in this edition of the Indian Premier League, Delhi Daredevils were shot out for just 67 by Kings XI Punjab, here today.

Lacking quality in batting department with confidence hitting the lowest ebb, Daredevils batting looked like a rudderless ship with none of the batsmen getting past 20-run mark. The highest individual score was 18 from Corey Anderson.

This was the second lowest score in this year's IPL after 49 by Royal Challengers Bangalore.

Daredevils batting show is even more disappointing considering their coach is Rahul Dravid -- one of the finest batsman to have graced the cricket field.

Injured Zaheer Khan did not play today and in an inexplicable decision, the team management named Karun Nair the skipper. Nair has been out of form since his triple hundred in Test cricket and did nothing to inspire the confidence of his colleagues.

Sam Billings nicked one behind off Sandeep Sharma (4/20), who had his first good day in office after having a terrible tournament so far.

The distinct lack of positive intent was evident among the batsmen. The two-paced track also made matters worse as Sanju Samson closed his bat face to a delivery from Sandeep that stopped on him.

Shreyas Iyer (6) also committed early to a delivery and Sandeep took a good return catch diving to his left.

Out of sorts Karun was played on going for a cover drive.

Rishabh Pant (3) got a straighter from Glenn Maxwell that caught him partially committed on frontfoot.

It was another day where Daredevils were caught napping both on and off the field in their planning and execution
