The score was 144 runs at a loss of 3 wickets. The team needed only 23 runs on 21 balls to win.

Kings XI Punjab, without the help of Chris Gayle, had scored a respectable score of 166 runs in 20 overs at the loss of 9 wickets. In reply, Delhi Capitol opener Prithvi Shaw was the first victim of KXIP captain Ravichandran Ashwin. Later, Ashwin bowled Shikhar Dhawan in front of the wicket. As long as Dhawan was able to bring down the bat, the ball had collided with his pad.
However, the goal was not far from the reach of Delhi. Captain Shreyas Iyer had a left hand handle. Delhi got at least one boundary in every over. In the 17th over, the situation had become so that the team could win easily without any hazard, but it did not happen. Rishab Pant became bold in the middle of Mohammed Shami’s over for a big shot.
Chris Morris had a strike on the next ball. As soon as the ball hit the bat, it was not seen that Ashwin was there in front. A spectacular throw forced Morris to return to the pavilion. Sam Karan came out to throw 18th over from Punjab Colin Ingram and Hanuma Vihari were present on the crease. Ingram has scored 38 runs from 28 balls so far. But on the fourth ball of 18th over, he got caught in the long-off direction and Karun Nair did not make any mistake.
Sam Carron hit Herschelle Patel in the last ball of the over, caught by wicketkeeper KL Rahul. The match was overturned and fans of Delhi could not believe what was happening on the field. Shami, who came in 19th over, bowled Vihari on the third ball.
Now, Delhi had only two wickets left. Sam Kerran finished the Delhi innings by scoring Sandeep on the first ball of the last over and bowling Kagiso Rabada on the other. With this he also completed his hat-trick. He became the third bowler to take hat-trick on behalf of KXIP.
