IPL 2018: Rajpoot, Tye combine to power KXIP beat DD

In a low-scoring game, it just takes a couple of wickets to turn things around. KXIP were restricted to a lowly 143 by DD and there was happiness all over the dug-out. But little were they aware that on a tricky Kotla wicket, even a score of 143 was equivalent to chasing 180. With the ball stopping and coming, and rearing up at times, Ankit Rajpoot (2/23) applied proper maths to strike twice, while Andrew Tye (2/25) returned with a couple of scalps to clinch the purple cap. The duo replicated Liam Plunkett (3/17), Trent Boult (2/21) and Avesh Khan's (2/36) efforts to stun Delhi at their home ground.
