Indian Premier League, 2019 | Delhi Capitals vs Kings XI Punjab PREVIEW

DC vs KXIP Dream11 Match Prediction | Who Will Win Today Match

Delhi, April 20, Saturday at 08:00 PM IST

The second fixture of Saturday's doubleheader will be played between Delhi Capitals and Kings XI Punjab at Feroz Shah Kotla in Delhi. The hosts would be dejected after their loss in the previous game and would be looking to come back stronger.

Placed third in the ladder, Delhi Capitals have five wins and four defeats in nine outings. They faced 40 runs drubbing at the hands of Mumbai Indians in the last encounter at the same ground. After a brilliant start from S Dhawan and P Shaw, the side once again collapsed and fell short by 40 runs while chasing 168 runs target set by Mumbai Indians. While the wicket will once again play a crucial part, the side must come back stronger against Punjab in order to secure a win.

On the opposite, Kings XI Punjab is placed fourth in the points table and is lagging behind only due to the net-run-rate. Both the sides share equal number of points and have same number of wins and losses. They are coming after securing 12 runs win over Rajasthan Royals and would be looking to carry forward their momentum.

Previous encounter:

Both the sides first met in Mohali where the hosts turned out to be victorious by 14 runs. It was the same encounter in which Sam Curran took a hat-trick and DC's inexperienced middle-order was exposed. Put into bat first, Kings XI Punjab posted 166-9 in 20 overs and in response DC folded up at 152 in 19.2 overs.

Head to Head:

Total – 23

Delhi Capitals- 09

Kings XI Punjab-14
