This would be a tussle between two bottom dwellers from IPL 2015. None of these two teams have yet opened their account. They both played a match each and lost it. Kings XI Punjab managed a decent score of 161 runs against Gujarat Lions. But the bowlers couldn't defend the total. Delhi Daredevils batting line up failed miserably as they could post only 98 runs on board against Kolkata Knight Riders at the Eden Gardens. That was a comfortable win for Gambhir's men.
Delhi Daredevils would be relieved to have a match at home tonight. Crowd support and familiar conditions would provide some boost to their confidence. The biggest disappointment for them in the last match was the failure of a good batting line up.
On the other hand, Kings XI Punjab can take some relief from their inform batting line up. The team was cruising well to a big score when suddenly Miller and Maxwell both fell in the same over. That was a setback as two new batsmen took time to settle. David Miller, the captain of Kings XI Punjab stressed on spending more time on the pitch. Rather than taking on each bowler early, he emphasized on ticking the scoreboard with more twos or threes.
