The Delhi Capitals and Punjab Kings squared off in the second match at the Arun Jaitley Stadium.

Talking of the second game, the home team won the toss and elected to field first. They restricted Punjab Kings to a total of 167/7 inside 20 overs, with opener Prabhsimran Singh scoring a masterful 103 off 65 balls.

For DC, Ishant Sharma returned with two wickets, while Axar Patel, Praveen Dubey, Kuldeep Yadav and Mukesh Kumar returned with one wicket apiece.
