==============================================================

Table-topppers Kings XI Punjab have undoubtedly been the best team of this season. While Glenn Maxwell has been their hero in most of the matches, players like David Miller, George Bailey, Virender Sehwag, Wriddhiman Saha have chipped in with useful contributions every now and then. Their confidence seems to be on an all-time high and their bowling attack has become better with each new match.

Punjab have a new coach in Sanjay Bangar who has been credited for the team`s phenomenal success this season. The Bailey-led side has won eight out of ten matches and complacency would be the last thing in their mind when they take on the hapless Daredevils.

Delhi Daredevils on the other hand have had another miserable season. They ended the last season at the bottom of the points table and started with a fresh team for the seventh edition of the tournament.

Despite having some quality players in their side, the team management has failed at planning strategies which has cost them most of the match. JP Duminy and Kedar Jadhav have looked two of their best batsmen and against Punjab, the coach and the skipper should make sure that these two get enough deliveries to bat.
