We are in Matchday 2 and it’s Delhi Capitals versus Kings XI Punjab. Both the teams will be aiming a clear win in their first match.
Afterall, what’s better than starting the season with a win. Infact, none of them has got a IPL title for their name in the history. In 2016, Delhi Daredevils renamed themselves to Delhi Capitals.
A potentially young-side lead by Shreyas Iyer vs the team full of big hitters including the ‘Universal boss’ and ‘Mad-Max’ will be a delight to watch. And referring to Matchday 1, the pitch is in the favour of batsmen and Delhi will be facing a tough time to prevent the big hitters from hitting some biggies.
Now, it was predicted before that having an extra seamer could do the job but, it seems like a spinner will be more preferable for either side. If Delhi wins the toss, they should go for a chase because in the second innings, the pitch becomes slow and will be troublesome for the seamers of Kings XI Punjab.
For Delhi Capitals, expectations are high from Ajinkya Rahane, Prthivi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan and Shimron Hetmyer who form up the top-order for the team. On summing up, both the teams have got equal chances to win the match and either side is expected to display great sense of potential.
