IPL 2019: A little sneak peek before the match between DC and KXIP
Delhi Capitals and Kings XI Punjab both the team have played 9 games of round robin and have won 5 each. The only factor which puts Capitals ahead in the points is the run rate.
The last encounter between them was quite an unlucky one for Delhi. The game was fully in control of the Capitals until KXIP counter attack. DC lost seven wickets in a span of eight runs and were defeated by 14 runs from a run-a-ball required situation.
The major worry factor for DC is to win at their home ground as the Capitals success rate at Kotla has been very low. Also, out of the 5 matches, 3 are scheduled at Feroz Shah Kotla ground. Capitals will desperately want to have some wins at home too.
Kings XI Punjab may be holding the fourth position in the points table but has not been constant in winning and has won matches here and there.
The strong point of DC is their strong bowling line up – Kagiso Rabada who now is holding purple cap continuously from quite a few time, Keemo Paul, Axar Patel, Chris Morris and the Nepalese leg spinner Sandeep Lamichanne. Even KXIP have the Ashwin duo – Ravichandran and Murugan.
Batting is a plus point for Kings as the line up has more experienced players than Delhi.
