ScheduleMonday, 19 May 2014 at 14:30 GMT / 15:30 UK / 20:00 IST
VenueFeroz Shah Kotla, Delhi
Delhi Daredevils performed pathetically throughout the tournament and managed four mere points with two wins after participating in 11 matches. Kings XI Punjab lost just two games out of 10 and are ruling the championship with 16 points. DD will enter their 12th encounter with a hope to win but the mighty KXIP have some better plans in mind.
Manoj Tiwari was the only competent batsman with an unbeaten fifty for DD in their previous game vs. Rajasthan Royals. Jean-Paul Duminy is their highest run getter while Dinesh Karthik and Quinton de Kock are the other batsmen in form. Shahbaz Nadeem, Imran Tahir and Mohammed Shami are working hard with the ball with minimum positive results.
Wriddhiman Saha was the ‘Player of the match’ for KXIP in their last match against Sunrisers Hyderabad whereas Glenn Maxwell, David Miller and Virender Sehwag are in top form. Sandeep Sharma, Mitchell Johnson and Rishi Dhawan are too hostile with the ball.
