It’s Delhi Daredevils v Kings XI Punjab and Shruti Chopra looks into her cards to see how this match may unfold. You can listen to her here or read excerpts of her prediction
We spoke about the Delhi Daredevils’ two contrasting performances in our IPL review video and one would hope that there is more stability in the team now as they take on Kings XI Punjab at the Feroz Shah Kotla ground in match 15 this evening.
For one, I do think the Daredevils should manage to keep themselves well focussed and calm. They’ll understand how and when to be more aggressive with their batting, in fact, they should pace their innings quite well. Their bowling too just continues from where they left off in their last game against Pune, plus their fielding will be top notch too. Now, at the same time, I don’t find Kings XI to be too weak either, if Delhi are going to be aggressive, then Punjab are going to fight them – in fact I feel Punjab’s team work appears to step up quite nicely. The difference in both teams is quite minor which is why it’s become quite a task for me to give advantage to one. But, on the basis of the team that should feed of its luck, I’ll give tarot advantage to Delhi Daredevils.
