Delhi Daredevils Vs Kings XI Punjab Match 15
Question in detail
Delhi Daredevils Vs Kings XI Punjab, match No. 15: Aiming to go the distance this year, Delhi Daredevils stepped up when it mattered a lot. They made a thumping comeback brushing aside the ebbs of their 15-run loss to RCB in the first match, where plenty of batting flaws in the poor chase confined Delhi to just 142. The next match against RPS, wherein Samson took a bow for his maiden T20 century, was an averse of Delhi's disappointing show at M. Chinnaswamy Stadium. The win came on the back of a desperate loss to RCB. And it must have boosted Delhi's confident for their journey ahead in the tournament. All they would eye now is to become the winner of DD Vs KXIP match.
Delhi's bowlers are on fire, and this has been quite evident so far. They did a fantastic job to restrict their opponents at a low total bowling first. In defense too, they broke the backbone of the Pune's strong batting line-up before the opponents could ease the chase.
Already producing some real nail-biters, the league has more in store in the coming days. Delhi Daredevils Vs Kings XI Punjab match at Feroz Shah Kotla on April 15 is also supposed to be a toe-to-to battle where both the teams would eye to extend their winning spree. Despite getting a good start to their campaign, Punjab couldn't quite sustain the momentum in their third game against KKR. The last two games saw Punjab in full bloom with Glenn Maxwell doing well with both his roles as a captain and as a batsman. But, a dismal defeat to KKR stopped their winning streak.
Punjab, at present, is in a rather comfortable position on point table. As of now, they have won two out of three matches and have placed themselves at 3rd. If Punjab becomes the winner of DD Vs KXIP match, they will cement a position in one of the two top positions on the point table. However, if Delhi wins the day, it would be their second win of the tournament.
Will Daredevils play upon home advantage to spoil Punjab's requisite for one of two top spots on the table?
