KL Rahul blasted the IPL's fastest half-century to give Kings XI Punjab a rousing start to their 2018 IPL campaign. Rahul razed the Daredevils attack in a brutal performance, getting to the landmark inside three overs and off just 14 balls.
 
Incongruously, though, Kings XI ended up huffing and puffing to their target of 167.
 
After Rahul's dismissal, Kings XI only managed 103 runs in 84 balls.
 
But such had been the damage inflicted by Rahul that they still ended up winning with seven balls to spare.
 
All that after Gautam Gambhir, the Daredevils captain, celebrated his return to his hometown franchise with a fighting half-century.
 
But Kings XI's spin duo of R. Ashwin and the 17-year old debutant Mujeeb Ur Rahman led a strong bowling performance to restrict Daredevils to a total that was just about par.
 
Scorecard:

Delhi Daredevils
166 for 7 - Gautham Gambhir 55, Mujeeb Ur Mujeeb 2-28
 
Kings XI Punjab
167 for 4 - KL Rahul 51, Karun Nair 50
