Both Delhi Capitals and Kings XI Punjab know that a win in this game will be a big step towards the playoffs. Both the teams have so far won five of their 9 games and a win in this fixture will put them in a strong spot. Kings XI Punjab and Delhi Capitals enter this contest on the back of contrasting results in their last outings.

While Kings XI Punjab beat Rajasthan Royals by 12 runs, Delhi Capitals lost to Mumbai Indians by 40 runs which also ended their three-match losing streak. Both the teams have already met once this season and it was Kings XI Punjab who had come out on top in dramatic fashion. Chasing 167, Delhi were 144 for 3 but suffered an almighty collapse to be all out for 152. Delhi will be keen to avenge that loss as they eye returning to winning ways.


Delhi Capitals won the toss and decided to bowl first against Kings XI Punjab at the Feroz Shah Kotla.

Here is what the captains said:

Shreyas Iyer:

“We will bowl first. Looking at the outfield it is getting a bit dewy and it will only get worse, depending on that we have decided bowl first. We made some mistakes in the previous games and have rectified it. We are backing on chasing any total. We need to be positive in our approach. If you see the wicket, it is turning a lot and we need to be positive. We have three changes – Ingram, Lamichhane and Rutherford come in.”

Ravichandran Ashwin:

“For starters, bat well when we bat first. One of the days to not make a decision. We were also looking to bowl first. We have an exciting change in Harpreet Brar – he bowls a bit of left-arm mystery spin. There is going to be dew, so we needed an extra bowler and Brar fits in as he can bat as well. Right time to bring Sam back in as he is our sixth bowling option.”
