Kings XI Punjab lived up to their new found reputation of party spoilers as they outclassed Delhi Daredevils by seven wickets in their Indian Premier League match at the Feroze Shah Kotla here Sunday.
After becoming the first team to be counted out of contention for this edition, Kings XI have bounced back to notch their third win from their last four matches. The Punjab side last week humbled Kolkata Knight Riders in their own backyard and stunned table topper Mumbai Indians at Mohali Saturday.
Daredevils, who are two wins away from confirming a semifinal spot, once again had the bounce of luck when they won the toss for the fourth time at this venue but Punjab bowlers, minus a struggling Brett Lee, kept a tight length and wrapped up the homeside for 111, the lowest IPL total here, with three balls to spare.
Kings XI then chased down the target with eight balls remaining.
