Match 13, KXIP v DC | Preview

Ashwin’s Punjab will take on Shreyas Iyer’s Delhi today. With both the teams coming out of a win, it will be a great contest as both the teams are high in confidence.

For Punjab, the form of KL Rahul, Gayle and Mayank Agarwal is a huge plus and with Miller and Mandeep doing a decent job at the middle, they are well equipped. Having said that, can they prevent Rabada from picking up their wicket?

Delhi is coming from a great victory against Kolkata Knight Riders the other night and Prithvi Shaw was the star among the Indian youngsters who missed out the ton by one run. Can he make it to the IPL ton this time around?

If Shaw dominated with the bat, it was Rabada’s super over that gave the team the much-needed two points. Can he rattle Gayle just like how he rattled Russell the other night?

At this venue, Punjab has won four matches in a row and will be looking for another win. For Delhi, it is all about consistency.
Harshal Patel will be darkhorse for the visitors if he plays today.
