Delhi has all-rounders like Marcus Stoinis and Chris Woakes.
Mayank Agarwal almost trumped the batting blitz with his 89 off 60 balls as Punjab closed in on their target but Stoinis claimed two wickets on successive balls in the final over to take the match into a super over. And with Rabada, Ishant Sharma, and Mohit Sharma and there haven't been many through the history then closing out death overs than Mohit Sharma, you can also add Kemo Paul to the mix who did a great job for us a year ago.
It was hard for Shami to defend two runs.
He hit 10 runs off Stoinis' first three deliveries at the start of the 20th over, but the bowler hit back when a wide full toss was slapped to Shimron Hetmyer in the deep. However, Iyer (39) and Rishabh Pant's (31) blistering partnership in the middle layed a foundation for Stoinis to come in and let hell loose on the KXIP bowling unit.
The severe bashing demoralised Punjab batting line up, which fell apart in no time.
Mayank Agarwal was the first of those to depart having made a superb 89, the opener rescuing his side after they had slipped to 55-5 in their reply.
He, though, was dismissed when only one run was needed off the last ball of the innings but Chris Jordan could not score the final run, giving Stoinis his wicket and the match was tied.
Iyer also spoke about Ravichandran Ashwin, who suffered from a shoulder injury while trying to save a single off his own bowling.
Ashwin landed on his left arm. The square boundaries are pretty big, so the batsmen need to be tactical. His wicket-taking and run-choking act served the Punjab side well.
Punjab have won four out of the last five matches against Delhi.
