Watch KKR vs KXIP and DD vs SRH Live Streaming
While Mumbai Indians fan would be happy to see how the team has bounced back so well in the IPL 2015, fans of Kings XI Punjab or Delhi Daredevils would be disappointed with the team performances. Today we have a double header - Kolkata Knight Riders vs Kings XI Punjab at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata and Delhi Daredevils vs Sunrisers Hyderabad at Raipur.
Kolkata Knight Riders, the defending champions have done a good job so far in the IPL 2015. They have 13 points from 11 matches and a win here can take them to the top of points tally. As they are playing at home, they would certainly pitch in plenty of spinners. Their trio of Chawla, Sunil Narine and Brad Hogg would again term to be a successful formula. Gambhir and Uthappa can score big runs while Andre Russell and Yusuf Pathan can score a big role in the middle overs for batting as well as bowling.
Kings XI Punjab is already out of contention and they have nothing to lose. Infact they have a good opportunity now to create some upsets and gain some pride. Beating KKR at the Eden Gardens would be a daunting task but they would love to achieve a win here.
The second match is between Delhi Daredevils and Sunrisers Hyderabad. DD has played two matches earlier here at Raipur and they are yet to lose one. Infact it was Shikhar Dhawan who scored well for DD last year playing at Raipur. This track being bowler friendly, we might see some good bowling figures from the likes of Zaheer Khan or Trent Boult. JP Duminy would be upset from last match defeat and he would be eager to see his team back to the winning ways.
Sunrisers Hyderabad are at sixth position. A win here will take them atleast one step further towards the play offs. A big knock is expected from David Warner or Shikhar Dhawan. If they can post a big total and bowl well they can create problems for Delhi Daredevils.
IPL reaching to its closure soon, still we aren't clear who would be the four top teams to qualify for the play offs. And this has been the beauty of IPL over the years. Enjoy the excitement while we would keep you posted with match previews.
