After an interesting show in the opening clash between Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings in 13th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) at Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi, the action moved forward to the Dubai International Cricket Stadium.

The second match of the tournament is an ongoing contest between two teams who have never won the trophy - Delhi Capitals and Kings XI Punjab. Despite reaching the play-offs, both the teams have failed to turn up at the crucial stages of the tournament.

Shreyas Iyer's Delhi Capitals were made to bat first. Punjab's Mohammed Shami put up a brilliant performance as he picked up 3 wickets in the first 15 overs. He dismissed Prithvi Shaw, Shimron Hetmyer and Iyer.
