    Sam Curran took a hat-trick in the IPL to claim a remarkable victory for Kings XI Punjab over the Delhi Capitals.

    The England left-armer took four wickets in just five balls as his team won by 14 runs.

    Batting first, Punjab made 166/9, with 43 from David Miller and 43 from Sarfaraz Khan.

    In reply, Delhi initially looked to be heading for a comfortable victory, reaching 144-3 with 21 balls left.

    But, because of Curran, they lost seven wickets for just eight runs inside 17 balls.

    They were 152 all out, with Curran taking 4-11.

    This win puts Punjab second in the table, level on six points with Chennai Super Kings, but with an inferior run-rate and having played a game more.
