Today’s IPL match is going to be held between the home coming Delhi Daredevils against the 1st time visiting Kings XI Punjab at the home ground of Delhi at Feroz Shah Kotla . While on one hand, Punjab is leading the list of points at the 2nd position after CSK, Delhi is struggling to keep up their position being at the bottom of the list.
Kings XI Punjab vs. Delhi Daredevils
There is excitement among the public to see Daredevils coming to Kotla after 3 weeks of IPL but still there is a belief too that the match is going to be quite one sided with Punjab ruling the game at present with 4 wins out of 5 matches played. The last match of Punjab against KKR at Edens in Kolkata was a super victory with having Punjab won by 9 wickets. It is said that when the Gayle storm begins then nothing can stop Punjab from victory. The partnership of the openers of kings XI K.L. Rahul and Chris Gayle seems unstoppable at the ground.
Where, Kings XI are roaring with victory the Daredevils had a disappointing loss at their last match on Saturday against RCB. When IPL 2018 started 2 weeks ago, people had a high esteem of the team Delhi with captain Gautam Gambhir who had led the KKR to win the trophy once and a balanced team of batsmen and bowler with coach Pointing. But, nothing great was fore played by the Daredevils on the ground leading to disappointment for their fans with only 1 victory out of the 5 matches played and being at the lowest position in the IPL 2018 points table.
It is expected that the support of home ground and its fans may change the game for Delhi today. It is pretty much to be one-sided match as thought upon, by seeing the past performance of both the teams. Still, you never know it is IPL and a single change can change the entire game. This might be a chance for homecoming Delhi as it is being heard they might do some experiments and changes in their bowling squad today and the home support is to their advantage. So, let’s see what happens whether the Gayle storm works for Punjab and leads to its victory like a roaring lion again or the home team seeking its advantages.
