Kings xi Punjab won v DD to hot up the competition for the playoffs
Shikar Dhawan despite becoming the first batsman in IPL history to make back to back centuries finished on the losing side. On a perfect batting pitch, he was the only one to wage a lone battle.
Kings xi Punjab batsman Gayle hammered 26 runs of pacer Tushar Deshpande, the costliest over in IPL 2020. Besides that, Iyer missed the trick by not bringing Ashwin when Gayle walked in. Pooran tore the bowling apart with a punishing 50. Hooda kept his cool and victory was secured.
