The Delhi Daredevils made a swift return to losing ways, ending their 1 game winning streak just as quickly as they had begun it. Being put into bat, Delhi posted a significantly under par 120-7 in their 20 overs with the only significant contribution coming from David Warner, who chipped in with a handy 40.

Harmeet Singh justified his selection by becoming the wrecker in chief for Punjab, taking 3 wickets for just 24 runs, including the big wicket of Virender Sehwag for 23.

A six on the penultimate ball of the match allowed the Kings XI Punjab to keep their hopes of a play-off berth firmly alive, while dishing out a heart breaking defeat to the Pune Warriors at the PCA Stadium in Mohali on Sunday night.

Punjab appeared to have lost the game when their decision to send the Pune Warriors in backfired miserably with the visitors posting an imposing 185-4 on the board in their 20 overs. Aaron Finch, captaining the Pune Warriors today, took advantage of being dropped early on by Adam Gilchrist to post an excellent 64 and shared in an opening stand worth 86 with Robin Uthappa, who contributed 37.

The Sunrisers Hyderabad continued to defy logic by registering their 5th win of the season to go top of the Indian Premier League points table. A batting collapse by the Kings XI Punjab, which saw them lose 6 wickets for 27 runs towards the fag end of their innings cost them dearly as the visitors posted a well under par 123-9 in their 20 overs. The Sunrisers Hyderabad knocked over the runs with 7 balls to spare thanks to a patient 46 from 19 year old Hanuman Vihari and some belligerent hitting towards the end of the innings by Thisara Perera (23 from 11 balls).

The visiting Kings XI Punjab side won the toss and opted to make first use of the Hyderabad track. Mandeep Singh continued his poor run at the start of the innings making 10 before a top edge off an Ishant Sharma delivery was well caught by young Quinton de Kock.

An organized and efficient team effort from Kings XI Punjab nullified Kolkata's individual contributions to pull off a surprising 4 run win over the defending champions at the PCA stadium in Mohali as KXIP picked up their second win of the season.

Sunil Narine's hat-trick, the tenth overall in the IPL and Gautam Gambhir's 60 runs from just 39 balls were overpowered by a late hurricane from Manpreet Gony lower down the Punjab innings and a tidy effort with the ball by Azhar Mahmood and Praveen Kumar. The sea-saw battle witnessed the momentum shift in favour of the Knight Riders quite a few times but the Punjab seamers held their nerve in the final moments of the game to hand Kolkata another frustrating loss.

The Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur continued to be a venerable fortress as the Rajasthan Royals picked up another crucial home win, beating the Kings XI Punjab by 6 wickets in a low scoring contest.

Put into bat on losing the toss, the Kings XI Punjab failed to bat out their 20 overs, being bowled out an unacceptable 7 deliveries shy of their quota for just 124. S Sreesanth landed a double blow in his first over, removing both openers - Adam Gilchrist (0) and Mandeep Singh (2), and that set Punjab back tremendously.

The Chennai Super Kings bounced back from their narrow defeat at the hands of the Mumbai Indians by recording a thumping 10-wicket triumph against the Kings XI Punjab in a one-sided contest at the PCA Stadium in Mohali on Wednesday evening.

Skipper MS Dhoni marshaled his resources effectively in the field to limit the Kings XI to just 138 after winning the toss and putting the home side in. Barring David Hussey's innings of 41 (36 balls) and Gurkeerat Singh's 31 (26 balls), Punjab barely put a foot right with the bat, and were bowled out a ball short of 20 overs.

The Pune Warriors were handed an embarrassing 8 wicket defeat at home thanks to a fantastic team effort from the Kings XI Punjab. The Warriors won the toss, but that was probably the last thing that went right for them in the early kick-off on Sunday.

Opting to bat first, Pune posted a paltry 99-9 in their 20 overs with Abhishek Nayar top scoring with 25. The wickets were shared around by the Punjab bowlers with Azhar Mahmood and Praveen Kumar taking two each and each of the other bowlers also contributing in the wickets column. With the exception of Kumar, none of the other bowlers also conceded more than 5 an over, and that excellent bit of economy helped keep the Punjab batting task to a minimum.
