About the Match

Delhi Daredevils continue to languish at the bottom of the table as they faced yet another loss at the hands of Royal Challengers Bangalore. The Kings from Punjab, on the contrary, continued on their merry way as they chased down the target with ease in a rain-curtailed game. It wasn't the only showers that the ground witnessed on super Saturday. It rained boundaries at Eden Garden as Chris Gayle and Lokesh Rahul wrecked KKR bowling single-handedly. Following this win, they are now placed at the top of the table and will take on Delhi Daredevils on 23rd April 2018. Delhi Daredevils are now in a race against time and will have to make a move quickly to have a good chance to qualify for the final four.

Match Preview

Delhi Daredevils

Having lost four games from a total of five, Delhi Daredevils will be hoping for a happy homecoming. Individuals have done well for Delhi Daredevils, but they've struggled as a team. Against Royal Challengers Bangalore, they put up a challenging total of 174 on a pitch that was slow and turning, but their bowlers failed to do anything against unorthodox yet brilliant AB de Villiers.

The two guys retained ahead of the IPL were the stars in batting as the duo scored a fifty each in quick time. Delhi Daredevils were reduced to 58 for 2 at one stage, but a 51-run counter-attacking knock by Shreyas Iyer let Delhi Daredevils back in the game. Rishabh Pant went berserk in the final overs and used RCB's death bowling woes to his advantage. He scored 85-runs off 48 deliveries which had six fours and seven sixes.

Delhi started off well with the ball as Maxwell got rid of Manan Vohra in the second over of the innings. Virat Kohli and Quinton de Kock steadied the ship for a while before the left-handed opener became a victim of indecisive running between the wickets. AB de Villiers then launched a counter-attack on Delhi's bowlers who could do nothing about it. Nadeem, Tewatia, and Patel were smashed for 86 in their eight overs combined. They tried to resort to negative bowling tactics of bowling on and outside leg stump which backfired.

Delhi fans have seen some brilliant performances from some extremely talented in their team. But those performances have often been their alone and have lacked partnerships, be it bowling or batting. Trent Boult was the only bowlers who looked like picking a wicket and actually picked one. Delhi Daredevils are crashing like the previous year's IPL and they badly need someone or something to inspire them to get back into the hunt.

Delhi Daredevils Starting Lineup

G Gambhir, Shreyas Iyer, RR Pant, Glenn Maxwell, Prithvi Shaw, LE Plunkett, DT Christian, R Tewatia, Amit Mishra, TA Boult, Avesh khan.

Kings XI Punjab

Who would have thought that the man who got rejected twice at the IPL auctions will make such a difference as he scored back-to-back fifties after being picked up? Certainly, not many believed so. Chris Gayle has turned back the time as he's looked more fit and solved KXIP's opening woes with his powerful batting.

While Chris Gayle has stolen all the headlines with a fairytale-like comeback, the other opener, KL Rahul, has matched him step to step. Following Gayle's inclusion in the playing eleven, Mayank Agarwal had to leave his opening slot only to be shifted to 1-down. Mayank Agarwal hasn't fired yet in the tournament, but his strong numbers in recent-most domestic competition suggest that big innings would be around the corner.

KXIP lacked a genuine fast bowler in their bowling attack, but that hasn't deterred them from playing their natural, aggressive brand of Cricket. With the likes of Nair, Yuvraj and Finch to follow, a rare Chris Gayle failure (only if it happens) should not worry KXIP considering the way the bowlers bowled well in the death overs.

KXP is the only team to score as quickly and consistently in powerplay as they've done in this IPL. Much of its credit goes to KL Rahul, Mayank Agarwal, and Chris Gayle who have been relentless yet watchful and have scored at will. Yuvraj Singh hasn't had a chance to bat in their last two games and their middle order hasn't been tested. They have an excellent variety of spinners available with them and given the way things have panned out, hitting against the spinners have been tougher as compared to that against quick bowlers. With their batsmen in superb form and their bowlers doing well in the recent games, a tough challenge awaits Delhi Dare Devils.

Kings XI Punjab Starting Lineup

Aaron Finch, Lokesh Rahul, Mayank Agarwal, Y Singh, Karun Nair, David Miller, Ravichandran Ashwin, AJ Tye, AS Rajpoot, Barinder Sran, Mujib Ur Rahman.

Toss Prediction

More often than not in the tournament, teams have won while chasing. Dew becomes a vital factor in toss-decision and being a night game, we expected DD to bin the toss and bowled first.

Pitch and Conditions

Feroz Shah Kotla is historically known to be low and slow, but we have scored runs being scored on all kinds of surfaces in this edition. Despite this, expect another high-scoring encounter on a hot day in Delhi.

Our Prediction

KXIP have a super batting lineup while Delhi's batsmen have struggled to score quickly at the top of the order. Not only does this slow down the things, it also puts additional pressure on batsmen padded up next. Jason Roy hasn't scored well after their spectacular chase against Mumbai Indians. On the flipside, the Kings have enjoyed the spectacular performances by their batsmen. Punjab have a big batting lineup that runs deep and considering the form of the two sides, KXIP goes in as favorites in this to win this upcoming encounter.
