Gurgaon: Gautam Gambhir started his preparations for the sixth edition of the Indian Premier League in right earnest as his unbeaten 68 helped Delhi beat Punjab by six wickets in a North Zone leg encounter of the Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 tournament in Gurgaon.
Chasing a target of 161, Delhi knocked off the required runs with five balls to spare. Delhi got four points from the match while Punjab lost their second game.
Gambhir played 54 balls and hit six boundaries and two sixes -- one off left-arm spinner Rajwinder Golu and other off seamer Sandeep Sharma over deep mid-wicket. However, Gambhir was dropped twice in the deep and had a charmed life at the crease.
