The Delhi Daredevils finally brought an end to their brutal losing streak, stopping it at 11 games, after beating the Kings XI Punjab by 5 wickets with 1 ball to spare in an entertaining contest in Pune.

Punjab won the toss and decided to bat first.

Coulter-Nile conceded 2 runs from the first 11 balls he bowled, but Vijay (19) and Sehwag (47) picked up enough runs off Dominic Muthuswami and Angelo Mathews to ensure that the scoreboard ticked over at a decent rate.

Delhi have been playing decent cricket this season, but have fallen agonizingly short in both their games thus far. Punjab on the other hand continue to look just as dangerous as they did last season, and that too without their two big Ms firing so far this campaign.

The Kings XI Punjab dominated 34 overs of their contest with the Mumbai Indians, and looked set to win their match in a canter before a late burst from Harbhajan Singh saw the 'Turbanator' smash 6 sixes and 5 fours to score 64 runs from just 24 balls and record the fastest 50 ever in Mumbai Indians history.

Bhajji though fell on the penultimate ball of the match as Kings XI hung on nervously to record an 18 run victory against a Mumbai Indians side who just refused to know when they were beaten.
