Kings XI Punjab to take on Delhi Daredevils in the 36th game of Vivo IPL ninth edition on 7th May 2016 at Punjab Cricket Stadium in Mohali. Both teams are coming into this match from losing their last games. KXIP was beaten by Kolkata Knight Riders who are at the top in the points table at this moment while DD lost against Rising Pune Supergiants.
Delhi Daredevils will be seeking their winning momentum again in the competition as they lost last match against RPS though they won 4 matches played out 5 previous ones. Captain Zaheer Khan is expected to make into the side once again he didn’t play last match due to some injury. Rishbah Pant and Quinton de Kock need to give good start once again versus KXIP on this batting friendly PCA wicket.
Kings 11 Punjab didn’t think that they would loss KKR after good bowling and batting performance from Glenn Maxwell. He scored brilliant fifty in the last game but couldn’t take team towards the winning margin. Manan Vohra, David Miller and Murali Vijay have to score runs big for Punjab to get some wins in the event. KXIP is out from the race to qualify for knockouts but still they can play and win for pride.
