Brendon McCullum's blitz at the top complemented the good work done by Kochi bowlers as they overpowered Delhi's total with five overs to spare and won the match by seven wickets here at the Feroz Shah Kotla ground on Monday.
McCullum smashed 37 runs in just 19 balls as Kochi posted fifty in just four overs, which made the chase easier for the visitors.
Delhi Daredevils' skipper Virender Sehwag chose to go in with the same squad against Kochi Tuskers Kerala that got them over the line against the same opponents two days back. Visiting skipper Mahela Jaywawardene won the toss and asked Delhi to bat first on a green-tinged Feroz Shah Kotla track on Monday.
With both the sides languishing in the bottom half of the points table, a win would help the steep climb they need to make in the rest of the tournament.
For Kochi, Raiphi Gomez returned into the XI along with a debut for local Kerala lef-arm fast rookie Prasanth Padmanabhan.
