The Ravi Ashwin-led side successfully defended the total of 143 and Daredevils were restricted to 139 for eight.

Delhi Daredevils will be hosting their first game of the season against Kings XI Punjab.

Delhi have been the least impressive of all teams in the past few seasons, only managing to finish at the bottom half of the pecking order. The toss has taken place at 7:30 pm IST and Delhi has chosen to bowl first. Aaron Finch was bumped to the top and was undone by the raw pace of Avesh: a 148.7kph lifter forced him to splice a catch to cover. But they then struggled to maintain the momentum after Plunkett uprooted Mayank Agarwal's stumps for 21.

Yuvraj's fall brought Karun Nair in the middle, who showed a little fight against the hosts and slammed 34 runs to take his team past the 100-run mark before falling in the 17th over to Plunkett.

Seamers Trent Boult (2-21) and Avesh Khan (2-36) also picked up wickets as Punjab lost them at regular intervals to slip to 8-143. Sustained aggression has been the mantra advocated by the team management - with Virender Sehwag at the helm - but it didn't work out in this game and they could only manage 75 in their last 10 overs, with only 27 coming in the final four.

But, while going for one shot too many, the youngster lost his wicket to pacer Rajpoot, who then also claimed the big fish Glenn Maxwell for 12. That it was a last-ball thriller was down to some sloppy batting and the brilliance of 17-year-old mystery spinner Mujeeb Ur Rahman and Shreyas Iyer.

Given Iyer's need to slash and Tewatia's relative inexperience with the bat, the home crowd was down to a prayer.

"When you lose three wickets in the first six overs, it's always hard, " Gambhir said.

"We were more discussing of what to be bowling, rather than what to be bowling", said Ashwin, "I decided Mujeeb will be bowling the 20th over". However, Shreyas Iyer kept the hope in DD dugout alive as he stitched a partnership of 47 runs with Rahul Tewatia at a crucial time. Avesh bowled well, Shaw is a player for the future. I thought if the captain gives me responsibility then I had to do well and pick wickets, because I wanted the side to win in a low-scoring game.

This will be first match for DD at their home ground after playing five away matches in a row and skipper Gautam Gambhir will surely be looking to stop his team's losing run in the competition. In their last match, Kings XI Punjab faced Kolkata Knight Riders.
