Player of the Match

 

S Dhawan received the Man of the Match award for his splendid century. He became the first player from the losing team to receive this award in this year's IPL.

 

DC had a total batting collapse, sparing Dhawan none of the other players clicked, the target for KXIP could have been stiffer if other batsmen would have supported Dhawan. KXIP's middle-order and lower middle-order were the primary reason for their win which is good news for them.
