Delhi Daredevils: MA Agarwal, Peiterson, Murali Vijay, KD Karthik, JP Duminy, MK Tiwary, KM Jadhav, WD Parnell, Imran Tahir, Mohammed Shami and JD Unadkat.
This season has been worst for DD with just two wins from all the matches played, and skipper Kevin Pietersen knows that his squad will not reach the Playoffs for sure. For KXIP, this season has been a gold mind with wins in most matches and retaining the top two spots in the table.
For Delhi Daredevils, there is a need to win this one to leave a lasting impression. There is Kevin Pietersen for the magic, but there is JP Duminy, as well. Like in the last match, Duminy is expected to bat on the top order, although that hasn’t worked for the last match against Rajasthan Royals.
KXIP has been leading on Glenn Maxwell for most parts of the season, thanks to the incredible strike-rate of 198.08. there is Virender Sehwag to look for, and given this is his home ground, the magic is expected today. The opener can form a partnership here, which is likely to take the game forward.
There are also others like David Miller, George Bailey, Wriddhiman Saha, and Manan Vohra whocan take charge. For the bowling, they will lean on Sandeep Sharma, L Balaji, and Rishi Dhawan.
Akshar Patel might also lend support as needed. They must however reduce the extras and focus on discipline in the bowling today.
