IPL: David Miller guides kings to five-wicket victory

2013-04-24 00:00

DAVID Miller’s undefeated 34 from 39 balls was enough to guide the Kings XI Punjab to a five-wicket victory with 18 balls to spare over the Delhi Daredevils in their low-scoring IPL clash at Feroz Shah Kotla in Delhi yesterday.

Australian David Warner’s 36-ball knock of 40 had earlier given the Daredevils’ innings an element of respect­ability as they reached 120 for seven in their 20 overs, and superb bowling displays from Roelof van der Merwe (4-1-17-1) and Johan Botha (4-0-23-1) pegged the visitors back to 70 for four in reply.

However, Miller, who plays for the Dolphins’ franchise, kept a cool head, and maturely guided his team to a comfortable victory.
