Sriram: Kings XI Punjab capitalised on the new ball

Rahul scored 51 of Kings XI's first 52 runs inside three overs, overtaking a four-year old record held by Yusuf Pathan and Sunil Narine. Amit Mishra has tremendous experience of IPL.

It may come as a shocker that T20 cricket's most fierce batsman Gayle was not a part of Kings playing XI.

Chasing 167, KXIP owed their sensational start to Rahul, who hammered six fours and four sixes.

"For years I've been branded as a "Test" cricketer, so it's good for me to be up there creating history and breaking records".

Rahul doesn't want the 14-ball fifty to cause him to lose focus in future games and insists the slate is wiped clean and the next match will be a new contest. But we know he will get better. Barring a few who have been retained, most of the domestic and some foreign players have joined the team this season.

Man accused of armed robbery in dorm at Southern University
The suspects fired at the pursuing cops prompting the latter to return fire that resulted to the death of the two suspects. When the man tried to escape from the armed robbery, he told police Williams struck him on the head, the report says.

Karun Nair (50), who also notched up a half-century, played a gem of an innings to help his side reach close to the victory. I am a complete fan of having a bowling captain.

Previously in the match, Gautam Gambhir with his 36th half century guided Delhi to a competitive total.

Apart from captain Gautam Gambhir, no other Delhi batsmen showed character to score big.

The veteran opener had a decent outing with the bat, bringing up a 42-ball 55.

Coming onto bowl in the third over of the Delhi Daredevils innings, Zadran trapped Colin Munro leg-before to open his tally in the competition.

Marijuana may be replacing opioid prescriptions
Texas dispensaries began selling cannabidiol oil treatments to patients registered with the state at the beginning of this year. One, published previous year , showed that Medicare saved about $ 165 million in 2013 from medical marijuana laws .

Sunil Narine almost matched Rahul when he hit 50 off 17 balls in Kolkata Knight Riders' four-wicket victory over Royal Challengers Bangalore at Eden Gardens in Sunday's other match.

Yuvraj Singh only made 12 runs, while Nair struck a 33-ball 50, which included five boundaries and two sixes, before he was caught by Boult off the bowling of Christian. Axar Patel went for 35 runs in 3 overs.

Mujeeb is now the youngest player to feature in the IPL aged 17 and 11 days and he could be around for some time on the evidence of his debut.

"In the past, we started with Rishabh (Pant) and Shreyas Iyer when they came from the U-19 level".

After striking with only his third ball, Mujeeb ran the well set Gambhir out and removed Rishabh Pant for 28 when the wicketkeeper-batsman was going along nicely to reduce Delhi to 111-4 in the 14th over.

Jose Mourinho clueless about Paul Pogba's poor Manchester United form
And with Romelu Lukaku in good form, Mourinho is reluctant to splash out on another attacker. If I want to change in minute 98, I change in minute 98'.

It allowed KXIP to pull things back a touch, and keep themselves in the game.
