King XI Punjab (KXIP) is doing wonderfull both on, and off the field. Their official Twitter handle is on fire, as it roasted the Delhi Daredevils (DD) after the match on Twitter.

KXIP defeated DD in their own backyard. It was Delhi's game to lose and they did exactly that. The home team couldn't chase 144 runs and eventually lost the game by 4 runs with 5 needed off the last ball. 

Punjab, after being put in to bat first, scored just 143 runs. When the visitors were struggling, DD's Twitter handle posted a tweet which read, "Googly nahi samajh paa raha bhai koi! Too good, @MishiAmit. Keeping it tight! KXIP - 91/4 in 13.4 overs."

However, Mishra went for runs. He conceded 33 runs in his four-over quota with an economy of 8.25.

But KXIP waited for the right time to reply and proved that revenge is a dish best served cold. When Punjab clinched the win off the last ball, KXIP Twitter handle tweeted the economy of their two spinners, skipper R Ashwin and Afghanistani spinner Mujeeb Ur Rahman, "Economy - Ashwin: 4.75 Mujeeb: 6.25.  See you in #VIVOIPL2019 ????." The Twitterverse really enjoyed the healthy banter. 

Punjab now stands on top of the points table and Delhi are consistent with their number last position.
