Well, Delhi Capitals did. In an insane collapse that even the old Daredevils would have been embarrassed of, this revamped Delhi team lost their last seven wickets for eight runs, as Mohammed Shami and Sam Curran produced death overs that even they might never have thought could be so productive. Curran was a monster, claiming 4 for 11 from his 2.2 overs – his last eight deliveries yielding all of his wickets, and only four runs.
Kings XI Punjab batted first and made 166 for 9 in 20 overs.
