It’s time for Match number 37 between two teams with the same points at this stage of the tournament. The match is in Delhi, and the home advantage seems for namesake as Delhi Capitals have lost 3 out of the 4 games that they have played in their backyard, if that’s what you can call it.
Kings XI Punjab will be feeling really confident with the quality of spinners they have got in their side, but can their batsmen adjust?
Will Delhi Capitals rectify their mistake by playing 3 spinners for today’s game?
Weather Conditions: A muggy atmosphere with a maximum temperature of 34 degree and a minimum of 22 degrees.
Pitch Report: The pitch is expected to remain the same as it has been since the start of the tournament. Feroz Shah Kotla will offer another sticky pitch which will aid the spinners.
Probable Playing XI:
DC – Shaw, Dhawan, Iyer (C), Ingram, Pant (Wk), Vihari/Paul, Morris, Axar, Rabada, Mishra, Ishant/Avesh/Lamichhane
KXIP- Gayle, KL Rahul, Agarwal, Sarfaraz, Mandeep, Pooran (Wk), Curran, R. Ashwin (C), Shami, Mujeeb, M. Ashwin
Given how unpredictable the captains have been, it is tough to say what team combination they are going to go with.
Kings XI Punjab would ideally not want to make any changes to their Playing XI after they won the previous game. However, Delhi Capitals might bring back Sandeep Lamichhane, or could also give a chance to Hanuma Vihari as he adds much needed stability with the bat and could also be an off-spin option.
Winner prediction: Delhi Capitals
