In response the Daredevils got off to a sluggish start and by the time captain Kevin Pietersen was dismissed for a good 44 his side were 59-2 after eight overs.

Jean-Paul Duminy (44*) and Manoj Tiwary (41) led a late revival, but fine bowling in the final two overs from Marchant de Lange and Jasprit Bumrah saw the chase fall short as the Daredevils managed just 158-4 in response.
