Kings XI Punjab will take on Delhi Daredevils in the match 35 of the Indian Premier League 2016. The latest Kings XI Punjab v Delhi Daredevils betting tips for this IPL 2016 encounter can be checked below.
The shift in captaincy for Kings XI Punjab didn’t seem to work well for them, as they are back to their losing ways. After winning by 23 runs against Gujarat Lions, Murali Vijay’s side ended up losing to Kolkata Knight Riders by seven runs. However, this is by far the smallest margin by which they have lost. As of now, they are sitting at the bottom of the league table.
Against Kolkata, they gave a decent bowling performance, as they got a target of 165. When they came to bat, their batsmen collapsed rather easily once again with only Glen Maxwell playing a decent innings. With yet another defeat, they are on the verge of repeating last year’s stigma once again.
On the other hand, Delhi Daredevils have risen superbly from the ashes of last year’s debacle under the coaching of Rahul Dravid. With a game in hand, they are the third placed side in the league with 10 points and undoubtedly, the best net run rate so far.
All these statistics are existing right now despite their recent defeat to Rising Pune Supergiants. where they failed to defend 162 runs. It wasn’t the best of nights in bowling for the Daredevils, who lost the match by seven wickets. However, they have got themselves a squad which is relatively stronger and fitter than their opponents.
The experience of Zaheer Khan as a bowler and a captain has turned out to be particularly useful, with Amit Mishra and Imran Tahir complimenting him well. In addition to this, with the entire team in good spirits, a defeat for them is highly unlikely here.
