Delhi Capitals (DC) avenged their shocking first-leg defeat with a five-wicket victory over Kings XI Punjab (KXIP), brightening their prospects of reaching to the play-offs of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2019 at the Feroz Shah Kotla stadium on Saturday.

Chasing 164, Delhi opener Shikhar Dhawan laid the foundation with a fluent 56 of 41 balls, while skipper Shreyas Iyer scored an unbeaten 58 off 49 balls to complete the job with two balls to spare. Earlier, Gayle smashed five gargantuan sixes into the night sky before DC put the brakes and restricted KXIP to 163 for seven.

In the first leg at the PCA stadium in Mohali, DC lost seven wickets for eight runs to gift KXIP victory after sitting pretty at 144 for three in the 17th over while chasing 168.
