Tremendous Opening! Gautham Gambhir’s fifty took Delhi Daredevils to 166/7 in 20 overs. It was Gambhir’s 36th IPL fifty as he equaled Warner’s record for most 50s in the event. Gambhir has shown his fire back again. Hope soon he will be entered in Indian Team! Let’s hope so. On the other hand, opener KL Rahul blasted his way to a fastest ever half-century in IPL 2018 as a new look Kings XI Punjab (167/4) started their campaign on a resounding note defeating Delhi Daredevils by six wickets on Sunday. What a hit! Rahul, had smashed six boundaries and four sixes in his 16-ball-51, the match as a contest was over within the Powerplay as KXIP raced away to 73 for 2 in six overs. Next, Karun Nair, had hit 50 runs in 33 balls, as the home team reached the target in 18.5 overs. Yuvraj Singh’s 12 off 22 balls stuck out like a sore thumb as he once again looked a pale shadow of his old self. Overall, the star of the match certainly was Rahul, who started with a top-edged six and a couple of boundaries off Trent Boult.
