Punjab posted a target of 164 runs, owing to Chris Gayle's knock of 69 runs off just 37 deliveries. But Delhi had no problem in chasing down the total as both Shikhar Dhawan and Shreyas Iyer scored half-centuries to guide the team over the line.

Ganguly also lauded the man of the match, Shikhar Dhawan, whose match-winning 97 runs off just 63 balls brought his team closer to victory.

While Russell hit a swashbuckling unbeaten 49 off 19 balls in the first game against Sunrisers Hyderabad, he cracked another match-winning 48 off 17 balls against Kings XI Punjab. But Ganguly has a small warning for the superstar.
