KXIP vs DC Predictions and Betting : Team News
The KXIP side looked a lot different when they played Mumbai Indians the other night. The inclusion of Gayle has not only brought new energy into the team but has also taken off some pressure of the opening pair.
The duo of KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal has been the best in this league with relentless, explosive batting early in the innings. Chris Gayle coming at 3 worked out well and they would want to continue it despite the West Indian needing some time to come in for the fireworks.
Nicholas Pooran has been the only performer in that middle order and looks to be a promising talent with years to come.
Glenn Maxwell has been sloppy but bowled a good spell against Mumbai Indians. Chris Jordan was able to deliver with both bat and ball.
Mohammed Shami looks heavily improved in the death whereas Arshdeep Singh needs to be consistent with his variations and the length he bowls in. The inclusion of Deepak Hooda turned out to be great for Punjab.
The spin pair of Murugan Ashwin and Ravi Bishnoi were excellent the other day giving no room for the batsman by bowling hard lengths. Punjab might go unchanged for the big game on Tuesday.
Delhi Capitals have been able to pull out some strong performances recently. The opening pair of Prithvi Shaw and Shikhar Dhawan have complimented each other with at least one of them carrying the innings while the other goes for shots.
Ajinkya Rahane has been slotted at No.3 who has the technique and the composure to play a big knock but lacks the power-hitting ability.
Shreyas Iyer has assumed the responsibility with both hands as he has led the side from the front in all games with some effective tactics. Marcus Stoinis has made invaluable contribution for the team coming at 5 whereas Alex Carey needs to get going in the coming games.
The bowling department looks deadly with Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje scaring the batsman with their pace and yorkers. The spinners Ravichandran Ashwin and Axar Patel have the made the most of this opportunity by not giving any room and applying pressure constantly.
Tushar Deshpande did a wonderful job in both the matches that he played for DC and will be filled with confidence when he comes out on Tuesday.
