Sam Curran, Livingstone guide Punjab Kings to 4-wicket win over DC

Sam Curran scored a crafty half-century to hold Punjab Kings's chase, while Liam Livingstone provided the perfect finishing touch to help Punjab Kings start their campaign on a high.

Curran was dismissed for 63, while Liam Livingstone remained unbeaten on 38. Punjab Kings chased down the 175-run target with four balls to spare to beat Delhi Capitals by 4 wickets.

It was not an ideal comeback for Rishabh Pant but a perfect start for Punjab Kings at their new home ground.

Earlier, Ishant Sharma pulled Delhi Capitals back in the game after dismissing Shikhar Dhawan and running out Jonny Bairstow in the same over.

Abhishek Porel made a massive impact with the bat as his powerful cameo helped Delhi Capitals score 174/9 in 20 overs. Porel, who came out as an impact player, remained unbeaten on 32 off 10 balls to give final push to the Delhi innings.

Earlier, Harshal Patel picked the massive wicket of David Warner who was looking in incredible form to hurt Delhi Capitals. David Warner scored 29 runs and gave Delhi a solid start. Meanwhile, comeback man Rishabh Pant replaced him in the middle.

The skipper Rishabh Pant scored 18 in his comeback match before getting dismissed by Harshal Patel. The southpaw scored a boundary during his stay in the middle but he did look a bit rusty.
