IPL 2018, DD vs KXIP Match Preview: Delhi is ready to face Gayle Storm
Written by Abhishek Lohia

A new captain, new coach, many new cricketers, not only this but also new team owners. In this reign of change, Delhi Daredevils had hoped that their luck in the IPL 2018 in the last four seasons would definitely reverse, but the fate of Daredevils has not yet come. He has lost four out of the five matches of this season and his team at the lowest position in the points table. Unfortunately, Delhi has played all these matches outside their home ground, but there is a ray of hope and hope in their camp. The Delhi is going to play its first home match against Kings XI Punjab in the IPL 2018 on Monday. Kings XI Punjab is second in the points table after Chennai. 

Delhi Daredevils

It is not that Gautam Gambhir lacks talent or skills. But, he appears to be dependent on one or two players on the field. Gautam Gambhir is struggling with double problem. One, he is unable to score himself and has failed to keep the other team as a unit. In addition to Gambhir, besides Baiting, Shreyas Iyer, Glenn Maxwell, Colin Munro, Jason Roy and Prithvi Shaw. Shaw has not been able to find a place in playing 11 so far.

Delhi is disappointed with Munro. This New Zealand dangerous opener has not been able to score yet. When both Gambhir and Munro do not score well, the pressure on the middle order comes. and they can not bear the pressure. So, the whole team gets shattered. Delhi has good bowling attack. Mohammed Shami, Trent Bolt and Daniel Christian are in good rhythm. But, the problem is that they do not have the support of batting.

Kings XI Punjab

Ashwin is leading for the first time in IPL, and he has given the good results. Chris Gayle is associated with this team after RCB. Since he has come into the team, the condition of the opponents is slender. This IPL, the first century of the 11th season, came out of Chris Gayle’s bat. Shane Watson then made the second century after this. By the way, K.L. Rahul’s bat is also blowing up.

Aaron Finch‘s bat is not working, but Karun Nair is giving a lot of support to Rahul and Gayle. Yuvraj Singh is also in Middle-order. However, neither did they get more opportunities and they could not get them roasted. Talking about bowling, Ashwin and Mujib ur Rahman are showing a great game. Mohit Sharma has influenced everyone. Apart from this, Barinder Saran is also the only one, who disrupt opposition batsmen.
