Clinical Finish For Punjab

KXIP just managed to keep that beautiful smile on Preity Zinta's face by defeating the Daredevils. Though DD defended their paltry total well, but Irfan Pathan hit three massive sixes to keep KXIP in the semis hunt.

Earlier Brett 'Binga' Lee & Sreesanth came to party & restricted DD to a modest total of 120. It was nice to see Lee gaining his lost rhythm back & the yorker which cleared Maharoof was the most beautiful of all. I still believe that instead of Maharoof, Mcgrath should have been included in the DD's squad. I hope he makes his way in the next game.

Coming back to the game, Sreesanth was lucky enough to get rid of Dilshan & DeVillers, as both of them are in killer form. Still, Sreesanth, who usually loses his cool after being hit for a boundary, held his nerves & bowled very well. Pathan also bowled well & his hitting was decisive.

DD on the other hand looked scratchy, but you should allow them some leniency as they have been superb right through this tournament. I hope they'll again come back to their blasting form in the next game against RR; & let me tell you, if they bounced back severely on RR, it might dent RR's hope of making it to the semis seriously.
