IPL 2018 When And Where To Watch Delhi Daredevils vs Kings XI Punjab Live Coverage On TV Live Streaming Online

The 22nd match of the Indian Premier League is between Delhi Daredevils and Kings XI Punjab today.

Match Prediction: In the last match played between the twoteams at Mohali, Kings XI Punjab easily outshined Delhi Daredevils with 6-wicket win and seven balls remaining.

Trent Boult - 7: (2-21 from 3 overs) Classy stuff from the Kiwi catching-star.

Both Gambhir and Ashwin had started a new chapter at the start of the tournament when they assumed the role of DD and KXIP captain respectively; one with two IPL trophies in his kitty bag, and the other with nearly no leadership experience at this level.

A HEAVILY-REJIGGED Delhi Daredevils produced a much-improved bowling performance and, but for a cricketing shot, the batsmen nearly took them home, here on Monday night.After restricting Kings XI Punjab to 143 for eight in their Indian Premier League match, the hosts ended their innings at 139 for eight.

In what was the sixth match for both teams, Kings' fifth victory resulted in a fifth loss for Daredevils.

From the DareDevils' point of view, the decision to make five changes in the XI looked a desperate move at the start, but with little more effort from their batsmen it could have proved to be a masterstroke. That Kings XI were missing the in-form Gayle, who had "pulled up sore", according to captain R Ashwin, did not help their cause either. So happy with his gesture, Preity Zinta went on to click a selfie with her fan. KL Rahul flicks it fine for a four. Took a good catch to dismiss Miller as well. No Gayle, Rahul and Finch gone. Later, a well-set Karun Nair holed out to Shreyas at long-on. One-down batsman Glenn Maxwell came and quickly departed after scoring 12 runs. So, Nair decided to make up for it against pace.

Add to that the fielding lapses - with both Maxwell and Shaw dropping the unsafe David Miller in a space of a few deliveries, the former's case is all the more baffling.

Barinder Sran's penultimate over yielded a wicket and conceded four runs, leaving Delhi with 17 runs to get from the final over. The one area they need to improve is the pace bowling front. Without an iota of doubt, the Daredevils have been the least impressive of all teams in the past few seasons of the cash-rich extravaganza, only managing to finish at the bottom half of the pecking order.

Pant let Mujeeb Ur Rahman slip through the massive gap between bat and pad, and Christian ran himself out silly. The variations of Mujeeb and Ashwin sent the asking rate ballooning past 10.
