Kings XI Punjab and Delhi Capitals will meet each other again in the match no. 38 of the Indian Premier League (IPL). The last time they met, it was a cracker of a contest which ended in a super over. Delhi Capitals ended up winning that in the Super Over and thereafter, we have had many contests that ended in a super over.

KXIP are taking one game at a time and are winning with great performances from their top-order batting and the bowlers chipping in. They are surely aiming the 4th spot in the points table. This can be concluded with their team’s intent on the field and recent performances. They are still in the hunt for the playoffs until Delhi Capitals break their winning momentum in this contest.

Delhi Capitals are in a comfortable position where they just need a win to qualify for the playoffs and eventually look to finish at the top two. Their batters are in a sublime form and their bowlers have been performing well too. It will definitely be a cracker of a contest with both teams playing for those two crucial points.

These are the three players you can exclude from your Dream11 team for KXIP vs DC game:

1. Nicholas Pooran (9 credits)

Nicholas Pooran has been playing well this season. But, his knocks have been mostly in the form of cameos and he has failed to convert a cameo into a big inning. He has been electric in the field though no doubt about it. But with options on offer from both the teams, you can opt for big scorers over Nicholas Pooran.

2. Axar Patel (8.5 credits)

Axar Patel was a hero for his team in their previous match. He scored 21 off 5 deliveries to take his team over the line. But the problem is that he doesn’t get to bat quite often. He often doesn’t bowl his full quota of 4 overs with the options DC has. Considering these factors, you can exclude Axar Patel from your Dream11 team.

3. Tushar Deshpande (8 credits)

Tushar Deshpande has been brilliant with the new ball for Delhi Capitals. He has either picked a wicket in the powerplay or troubled the batters in the initial part of the innings. But as the match proceeds, he cannot make the ball talk as much as he does initially. With the options you get for bowlers from DC alone, you can exclude Tushar from your Dream11 team.
