Delhi Capitals, who lead the points table, lost to Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) by five wickets in their Indian Premier League (IPL) match on Tuesday, prompting a couple of their players to give vent to their emotions on Twitter.

Spinner R Ashwin tweeted a picture of himself tying Chris Gayle's shoelaces from Tuesday's match. He wrote, "The devil is always in the detail. 'Tie both his feet together, before bowling to him'. Tough day for us @DelhiCapitals but, we will bounce back stronger."

"Tough game out there but we'll learn from this and come out stronger Flexed biceps Thank you for your wishes," he tweeted. Dhawan had made an unbeaten 106 off 61 deliveries on Tuesday but Delhi Capitals failed to put up a big score.
