IPL 2018: Delhi Daredevils vs Kings XI Punjab, Match Preview

IPL 2018: Delhi Daredevils vs Kings XI Punjab, Match Preview
Written by Abhishek Lohia

In the PCA stadium in Mohali, there will be shown an intense fight between Kings XI Punjab and Delhi Daredevils at four o’clock in the evening. Before the match on Saturday, the coaches of both the teams counted the strengths of their teams and made a mark of victory. Kings XI Punjab’s chief coach Brad Hodge and Delhi Daredevils assistant coach Praveen Amre said about the strength of their teams. Daredevils wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant is counted as an explosive batsman. Pant has scored 564 runs in 24 matches so far. These runs are made from the strike rate of 151.20. The record for the fastest T20 century in Indian batsmen is their name. In the 2017-18 season, he scored a century in Delhi for just 32 balls. Only Chris Gayle, who scored the fastest T20 century in the world, Gayle scored a century in only 30 balls.

The Kings XI will have great hopes from the middle-order batsmen like Chris Gayle and Yuvraj Singh. If one of the two batsmen runs, then he can change the map of his own match alone. By making a hundred in the practice match, Yuvraj has also given signs of a return to his form. At the same time, Gayle also had a century for the West Indies recently. That’s why cricket lovers will be watching the batting of both.

Kings XI Punjab coach Brad Hodge said that this time Kings XI Punjab’s mistress Preity Zinta had selected a superb team. All the players in the team are more than one, so we have a great hope that we will definitely win the title this time. Team Yuvraj Singh, Chris Gayle, KL Rahul and David Miller are the players who can change the attitude of the match. If one of the players tickled on the wicket, then surely we will win.

Delhi Star Factor- 

Delhi has Trent Boult, Daniel Christian, Shreyas Iyer, Glenn Maxwell, Amit Mishra, Chris Maurice, Rishabh Pant, Prithvi Shaw and Jayant Yadav. Delhi has been shocked by the departure of fast bowler Kagiso Rabada and it is not clear whether the fast bowler Mohammad Shami is fit to play the first match.

This season, Delhi captaincy is in the hands of Gautam Gambhir. Both teams have not won the IPL title so far. Gambhir has made Kolkata Knight Riders twice as champions in their captaincy. Ashwin has little experience in this matter. In such a situation, when he was in the Chennai SuperKing team, he must have learned something from captaincy to Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Delhi Daredevils have seven such young players, who are under 23 years of age. They have all the star batsmen under-19 national team. In such a situation, it would be forgotten to take our team lightly.
