Delhi will take on Kings XI Punjab in their home match at Feroz Shah Kotla on Saturday evening. Punjab lost their last match against KKR and would look to get back to winning ways. Delhi, on the other hand, thrashed Rising Pune Supergiant in their last match and would look to continue the winning momentum.
Delhi Daredevils, high on confidence after a rollicking 97-run win against Rising Pune Supergiant, will hope for a similar display in their first match at home in front of their long-suffering fans when they take on Kings XI Punjab at Feroz Shah Kotla in New Delhi on Saturday (April 15).
KXIP had a good start to the tournament winning the first two matches comprehensively. They have been aggressive, determined and passionate bunch of cricketers under the leadership of Australian Glenn Maxwell. The Australian skipper had led from the front scoring 43*, 44* and 25 in the three matches. They would not take the loss against KKR too close to heart. They would love to get back to winning ways against DD.
KXIP strength: Batting is their strength with quality overseas batsmen in Hashim Amla, Glenn Maxwell and David Miller. Batting depends a lot on them, but they have tried and tested players in W Saha and Manan Vohra. Bowling is an all-Indian attack, but it has done its job till now.
Delhi began their Indian Premier League 2017 campaign with a stutter, as they failed to chase down 158 at M Chinnaswamy Stadium against Royal Challengers Bangalore. It was a collective batting failure, with only Rishabh Pant, who put his personal grief behind him to make a stirring 36-ball 57, shining.
One of my favourite team of Ipl is Delhi as it is only a team which is filled with cricket stars. And the worst thing which I don’t like about this team is that this team before this was not performing very well, but in this session, Delhi Daredevils is playing very well.
All the players of this team are playing for good, and that’s the only reason why Delhi team have won its last game. But if we talk about the team of Punjab then this team is also performing amazingly in this session as before this Punjab was at the top of point table but after losing its last match, punjab got reduced in point table.
If Delhi wins this match, then Delhi will in the 4th number of point table as now Punjab is holding the 4th rank in point table.
But the plus point which Delhi has got is that this match is being played at Feroz Shah Kotla which is the Home ground of Delhi, and also it will help them to get the victory.
But if we look at the stats then we can’t also deny the fact that Punjab has won half of its matches on opponents home ground.
All the members of both the teams are in form and capable of doing anything at any moment. Delhi team is also performing very well, and Kolkata has also got some top player like Sunil Naraine and many other who are also capable of breaking the opponent’s strength.
But the main thing is that IPL is a game which is full of thrill and suspense and that’s why only we can’t predict anything before the match. So stay tuned and wait for the match results as anything can happen in a game.
