In their last match, Delhi Daredevils have failed to resist the KKR’s attack as Gautam Gambhir and Robin Uthappa easily steered the team to a fantastic victory. Batting first, Delhi Daredevils scored 160 for 6 with Sanju Samson’s 60 and Shreyas Iyer’s 47. And shockingly, despite having an experienced bowling unit, DD failed to restrict the total.

Team News for Kings XI Punjab (KXIP)

Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) are hoping to get their in-form opener Hashim Amla back to squad. Also, the good form of Shaun Marsh is instilling a fresh spirit in their otherwise lusterless form this IPL season. The left-handed explosive Aussie batsman, Shaun Marsh, scored a fighting 84 against SRH at the last match at home. Punjab will expect similar stunning performances from Maxwell, Vohra and Morgan as well.

But main concern for Punjab is its spineless bowling. The team has good fast bowlers like Ishant Sharma, Mohit Sharma and Sandeep Sharma at the helm – the trio needs to bowl well tomorrow to give an impressive performance and beat DD at home. In the spin department, Axar Patel and K.C. Cariappa will have to weave magic with their spin bowling.

Team News for Delhi Daredevils (DD)

Delhi middle order batsmen need to rise up to the occasion and play sensibly well to put a big score on the board against Punjab tomorrow. Again, all eyes will be towards Sanju Samson who is the only Delhi batsman keeping Delhi’s hope alive in the tournament. Some other key players in the team include Rishabh Pant, Karun Nair and Shreyas Iyer – on and off, they have also played some good knocks at IPL 10.

In bowling department, Delhi Daredevils have quality fast bowlers including Zaheer Khan, Pat Cummins, Kagiso Rabada, Corey Anderson and Chris Morris. No doubt, bowlers have thoroughly failed at this tournament. Even if Delhi wins tomorrow’s game still their play-off dream is extremely difficult to achieve. Leggie Amit Mishra is expected to bowl some finest googlies and flipper tomorrow at the turning track in Mohali.

Predicted Playing XI (Both Teams)

Kings XI Punjab (KXIP): Manan Vohra, Hashim Amla, Martin Guptill, Shaun Marsh, Glenn Maxwell (Captain), Axar Patel, Wriddhiman Saha (Wicket Keeper), Mohit Sharma, KC Cariappa, Sandeep Sharma and Ishant Sharma.

Delhi Daredevils (DD): Zaheer Khan (Captain), Ankit Bawne, Sanju Samson, Shreyas Iyer, Karun Nair, Rishabh Pant(Wicket Keeper), Corey Anderson, Chris Morris, Kagiso Rabada, Pat Cummins and Amit Mishra.

Head-to-head: Delhi Daredevils (DD) have 11-8 win-record against Kings XI Punjab (KXIP).

Match Result Prediction: Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) will win.
