Delhi Capitals (DC) managed to come out trumps in their erstwhile encounter against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) at the Feroz Shah Kotla in New Delhi. After the match ended in a tie, Kagiso Rabada bowled an awe-inspiring super over and defended 11 runs in the over. Subsequently, the Shreyas Iyer-captained outfit won their second encounter out of three and are at the top half of the points table.

Their next game is against Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) at the PCA Stadium in Mohali. Like Delhi, KXIP also emerged victorious in their last home game against Mumbai Indians (MI). They are hanging in the middle of the table with two wins from three games. Punjab would be the favourites in the next game as far as records are concerned. At the particular venue, Delhi haven’t won against Punjab since 2010.

The visiting team needs to be wary of one player in Chris Gayle, who has been in jaw-dropping form ever since he announced his decision of retiring from ODI cricket. In this edition of the IPL, the 39-year-old hulk-like batsman has scored 139 runs in three games and looks set to get another big score under his belt. If he gets going, then the match could get out of DC’s hands very quickly.

Record against the opposition (DC):

13 innings, 381 runs, 38.1 average, 149.41 S/R, one century, 1 fifty

Record at the venue (PCA Stadium in Mohali):

T20 format – 7 innings, 386 runs, 64.33 average, 164.25 S/R, one century, 3 fifties.

Last 6 T20 innings at this venue – 40, 104*, 63, 17, 61, 87

Recent form:

Last 9 innings across all formats – 40, 20, 79, 5, 15, 77, 162, 50, 135

Last 7 innings across all formats – 40, 20, 79, 5, 15, 46, 35*

Dream11 Scenario:

The Jamaican costs 10 credits in the batsmen category and is picked by 94% of teams. His popularity is a testament to the form he has been in in the T20 tournament.
