Delhi Daredevils vs Kings XI Punjab: Head-to-head and Probable XI
Delhi Daredevils have played all their 5 games on the road so far. Today they will finally play their first game at home against Kings XI Punjab. Gambhir's side have only managed one win in their 5 games and a victory here tonight could spark a turnaround for them. Here are the head to head records and probable playing XI for this fixture.
'Homecoming' for Gambhir and his men
These two sides have met 21 times with Delhi Daredevils winning on 9 occasions as compared to 12 wins notched by Kings XI Punjab. At the Feroz Shah Kotla, the Daredevils boast a slightly better record winning 5 of the 9 matches they have played against Punjab. However, Delhi have a poor record at their home ground with 23 wins and 32 losses.
Delhi keen to change their fortunes at home
The Kotla is known to be a batsman's paradise with the average first innings total in 2017 being 184. Keeping this in mind, Gautam Gambhir will be wary of Kings XI openers. Kings XI have managed opening partnerships of 58, 32, 96, 53 and 116 in this tournament. Getting Gayle and Rahul out will be Gambhir's top priority.
