Kings XI Punjab vs Delhi Capitals IPL Match Prediction
A depleted Kings XI Punjab will look to revive itself when they take on Delhi Capitals in the 38th match of the Indian Premier League. The match will be played on the Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Dubai and is scheduled to begin at 6:00 PM local time.
Kings XI Punjab managed to pull off two back to back wins to get their campaign back on track. While Punjab will be relaxed after their win in the last game, they must be equally concern about their performance. For Punjab, it has been a one man show. Apart from Rahul and Mayank Agarwal, Punjab has got no support whatsoever from their team. Any day that Rahul fails to score, Punjab is going to fall face down. The situation they’re in, they can’t afford to lose another match and this is where KL Rahul needs his players to lend him a helping hand.
Delhi has been exceptional this season. With 7 wins in 9 games, they’re settled at the helm of the table but they too have certain issues to deal with. The form of Prithvi Shaw is a big issue as he’s not been able to give Delhi the brisk start that’s expected of him, Ajinkya Rahane has failed to impress in the opportunities he’ got. Same goes with Shreays Iyer who’s been hot and cold in the tournament. However, the form of Shikhar Dhawan will be a big relief. In the bowling department, the duo of Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje has been very impressive and has got good support from the Indian spinners, Ravi Ashwin and Axar Patel.
Overall, both team looks on par in terms of skills but the problem for Punjab has been their over reliance on KL Rahul which can hurt them badly in the long run. Delhi has a definite advantage over Punjab in their next clash.
