A high-voltage match will be going to take place between Kings XI Punjab and Delhi Daredevils at 8 PM at the Feroz Shah Kotla ground in Delhi.
It will be a close contest between both the teams as out of the 18 games played so far, Kings XI and Daredevils have won 10 and 8, respectively.
Talking about this season of Indian Premier League, it seems like Kings XI have an edge over Daredevils as they have won two out of three matches played so far. On the other hand, Daredevils have won one out of two matches this season.
Punjab captain, Glen Maxwell with his explosive batting has led the team from the front. Besides Maxwell, Hashim Amla and Manan Vohra are also in great form, which might put Delhi on the back foot.
As far as bowling is concerned, Punjab depends heavily on Indian seamers Ishant Sharma, Mohit Sharma, Varon Aaron and Sandeep Sharma. However, Delhi’s biggest strength is their bowling, which includes world class bowlers like Cummins, Mohammed Shami, Kagiso Rabada and Zaheer Khan.
Here are the Highlights:
