Kings XI Punjab are still in this tournament, if only just. Having pulled off a giant-killing on Tuesday, handing Royal Challengers Bangalore their first home defeat of the season, they will be buoyant. Now they have to win again, and then win once more on Saturday against the might of the Mumbai Indians to have any chance of qualifying. Meanwhile, Royal Challengers will need to lose again, and Sunrisers will need to lose two in two.
Before Mumbai though, they have a less daunting task: the struggling Delhi Daredevils. Last year Daredevils finished the league stage as table-toppers. This year they are in danger of finishing rock bottom. Following their capitulation against Chennai Super Kings on Tuesday, their coach Eric Simons had pointed out that the most frustrating part of their campaign has been that they keep repeating the same mistakes, especially by losing early wickets.
He also said he is already looking at team combination for next year, when a complete overhaul of the squads could happen with all players scheduled to go into the auction (though it is more likely there will be a retention clause available to the franchises). The players will have that big auction at the back of their mind, as a decent finish to an otherwise abysmal campaign could be the difference between procuring a contract and going unsold.
Dharamsala had experienced heavy rain over the weekend, making the organisers wonder if the two games scheduled here would be affected. But, fortunately for Kings XI and the fans, the rain has blown over and the forecast for Thursday is clear.
Its been amazing how punters are predicting the games in this season, look at our IN-MATCH polling results of yesterday and you will find actually punters are doing a great job. Please guys continue your good work and help us to make this site heavens for punters around the world.
Kings XI still have outside chance of qualifying for the play-offs though they have to win both the remaining matches and need to pray that RCB and Risers will loose their own. Though Kings XI fate is more depends upon other teams they have to done their bit. Their performance is on and off but far better then the Daredevils.
Daredevils are playing like an ordinary team, their batsmen are struggling and their bowlers don't know where to bowl and as far as their captaincy is concern, its been dis-array throughout the tournament.
Dharamshala ground is small with fast outfield and pitch is suitable for batting, chasing the total shouldn't been any problem but if Delhi will be chasing its always dicey as they are mainly dependent on Sehwag and Warner.
Our experts have decided to go with Kings XI in this match on the basis of teams performances.
