Delhi, April 20, Saturday at 08:00 PM IST
The second fixture of Saturday's doubleheader will witness the clash of Delhi Capitals and Kings XI Punjab at the Feroz Shah Kotla Ground in Delhi. This will be the second time both the teams will come face to face in this season.
In their previous encounter in Mohali, Kings XI Punjab turned out to be victorious by 14 runs after defending a low total. It was the same game in which Sam Curran took a hat-trick.
Placed in the first half of the points table, both the sides have managed five wins in nine encounters and would be looking for a couple of quick wins to secure a spot in playoffs.
So, will Delhi manage to avenge their previous loss or will Punjab succeed in making a double over Delhi Capitals? The coin will be tossed at 07:30 PM IST.
