Delhi Daredevils vs Kings XI Punjab: Who will win tonight?
Delhi Daredevils are desperate to bounce back after facing a series of defeats. They will be looking towards the comfort of their home to turn things around as they host Kings XI Punjab in match number 22 of the IPL. Punjab have one of the most devastating line-ups but Daredevils have enough quality to stop them. So who will win tonight?
Spinners tend to take a beating at the Kotla
The Delhi Daredevils have won their last three matches against Kings XI Punjab at the Feroz Shah Kotla. The Daredevils will be looking to capitalize on the fact that spinners have had a tough time at the Kotla in the past. Kings XI have plenty of spin bowling options and they will be forced to work around that.
How much will Kings XI Punjab score?
Rahul has been a class act through this IPL. If Rahul along with Chris Gayle unleash their fury against the Delhi bowlers, we would be looking at a mammoth total. If Kings XI bat first, then we are definitely looking at a score of 180+. But if Punjab lose both their openers early, we could see a score in the range of 160.
How much will Delhi Daredevils score?
Delhi Daredevils have a line-up that bat's deep and the likes of Rishabh Pant and Glenn Maxwell can take the game away from the opposition in a matter of few few deliveries. If the Daredevils bat first, we are looking at a score of 170 plus. If Gautam Gambhir and Jason Roy get going early then 180 is not difficult to reach.
Who will win tonight?
Kings might be the most in-form team right now, but our bet is on Gambhir's side to bounce back from their lean patch. If DD are able to contain Rahul and Gayle, the game could be theirs. Delhi have won just one of their last 5 games and a win in their first home game could spark a turn around for Gambhir-led side.
