Let’s know about 5 big reasons, How Delhi Capitals lost the match from KXIP?
1- The biggest reason for Delhi Capitals losing opener Shikhar Dhawan was not getting any support. Iyer, the captain of the Delhi Capitals, won the toss and decided to bat first. On the one hand, Dhawan was batting brilliantly, on the other hand, the batsman was throwing away his wicket. In such a situation, Shikhar Dhawan started scoring fast with one drop. Dhawan batted till the end of his innings of 106 not out, and none of the Punjab bowlers could take Dhawan’s wicket. Dhawan hit 12 fours and 3 sixes in this century innings. Due to the absence of any batsman, the goal could not become big enough, and this goal was easily surpassed by the Punjab team.

2- The biggest reason for Delhi’s defeat and Punjab’s victory was the Punjab bowlers. Punjab bowlers also performed well in this match and prevented the Delhi team from scoring big scores. Delhi Capitals are consistently winning the match and are number one on the points table. For Delhi Capitals, no batsman apart from Shikhar Dhawan scored. His bowler’s contribution to Punjab’s victory in this match. For the third time in a row, Punjab captain Rahul bowled the first over from Maxwell and in the third consecutive match, Punjab’s team won.
3- The biggest reason for victory for Punjab was Nicholas Pooran’s timely run. In this match, Punjab batsman Nicholas Pooran batted excellently and scored fast. The same three Punjab batsmen Rahul, Mayank, and Gayle failed to convert good innings into big scores, but Nicholas Pooran did that job to lead his team to victory. In the end, Glenn Maxwell has also indicated to come into the form by batting well. Maxwell played Nicholas Pooran very well and this was why Punjab won.
4- The biggest reason for winning Punjab was the performance of Glenn Maxwell‘s all-rounder. This Punjab all-rounder had a very disappointing performance in all the previous matches. But in this match, bowling first took an important wicket of Delhi Capitals. Then after that, batting also played small innings for his team. With Pooran, Maxwell batted with great patience and scored 33 runs in 2 balls and in this innings he hit only one four which proved to be very important.
5- The fifth biggest reason for Delhi Capitals losing was their bowlers’ poor performance. Delhi Capitals did not even score much left that it was difficult to defend. But his bowlers could not get the wicket at the right time and this became the biggest reason for losing.
