Kings XI Punjab vs Delhi Daredevils:
The second match of this super Saturday will be played between the two unpredictable teams of the tournament. It’s the KXIP who will take on Delhi side in an important match. Delhi is at no 3 in points table whereas KXIP is at the last in points table. Match will be played at Punjab Cricket Association Stadium, Mohali. Match will be live at 7:30 PM Pakistan Standard time.
Starting from the Delhi Daredevils side who so far has played quite decent game and have impressed his fans. They have won 5 out of 8 games and are in a good position to qualify for the next round. If we talk about Delhi side, they are the most unpredictable side of the tournament as u can’t predict with which strategy they are going to play the next round. Delhi Daredevils captain got injured in the last match and they lost their home match against Pune. Delhi batsmen are looking in a good touch in the tournament as all of them scored runs and if they continue to do like that Delhi have a good opportunity to go through next round. Coming towards their bowling which is so far awesome in the tournament. The way all of the bowlers have bowled was just amazing. They have spinners like Mishra and Tahir who have created problems for the batsmen in the tournament so far. Morris and Zaheer both were also quite decent in the tournament. The issue that so far Delhi have faced is their fielding in which they really need to improve much. The way they missed chances against RPS was quite disastrous and they lost the match only due to their fielding.
Coming towards the Punjab side who so far haven’t done much and now they just need to end this tournament in a respectable way by winning their remaining matches. Punjab side has changed their captain and now Murali Vijay is leading the side but still they didn’t get the best results for them. They have so far just won 2 games and lost 6 games which is quite heartbreaking for their fans. Hashim Amla is the new inclusion in the side and that will surely strengthen their batting in the next matches. Their backbone David Miller was totally off color in the whole tournament and that is one of the reason KXIP couldn’t do much in this tournament. Their bowlers are looking very good in the tournament specially their spinners who have bowled from their heart but the response of their batsmen wasn’t quite good in the tournament. Now their match is against Delhi side who also lost their last match but still they are in a very good form and win against them will certainly boost up their morale for the next matches and KXIP best try will be to end this tournament at a high.
Pitch of Mohali is good to bat but due to rough patches bowlers specially spinners will find turn on it and both the teams will try to rely on their spinners.
