Kings XI Punjab vs Delhi Daredevils

Transfer out: ABD, Usman Khawaja, Rajat Bhatia


Transfer in: QDK, Hashim Amla, KC Cariappa/Shahbaz Nadeem/Jayant Yadav

Delhi have played a lot of tricks in this IPL but with last games’ hard-hitting loss, I think things will return to normalcy and they’ll pick their best possible eleven.

Kings XI Punjab have had a mini revival, not exactly in terms of results but in the terms of performance. They have looked like a better side and they would like to climb a few spots in the table by getting a victory tomorrow.

I already have Amit Mishra in my team for this game!

If Quinton De Kock plays, I’ll get him in for sure because on a pitch that aids stroke making, he could be really handy. We all remember what he did on a similar sort of wicket in Bangalore a few weeks back.

HashimAmla is a great exponent of the T20 game despite the reputation that he has. He played brilliantly during the World T20 and is no novice to the Indian conditions. Also, with Punjab playing 2 games in 3 days, I expect him to give me at least 150 points before I transfer him out.

Glenn Maxwell played well in the last game but tomorrow he’ll be up against Tahir and Mishra and thus I can’t see him repeating his heroics.

No other Delhi player makes it to my team as they bat too low and Morris hasn’t been that great with th ball in the last two games.

For the uncapped player, my first pick would be KC Cariappa(if he plays). The Daredevils middle order is not very good with spin and I expect Cariappa to get me a couple of wickets. If Cariappa doesn’t play, I get ShahbazNadeem or JayantYadav, whoever plays.

Batting captain: Quinton de Kock (if Delhi bat second)/Hashim Amla (if Punjab bat second)

Bowling captain: Amit Mishra

Happy team picking!
