The nail-biting win over defending champions Mumbai Indians was certainly a morale-booster for the inconsistent Kings XI Punjab. Taking confidence from the win, they will now take on the mighty Delhi Capitals in a make-or-break situation at Dubai International Cricket Stadium on Tuesday.
Having lost two tight games they should have won at the start of the season, the KL Rahul-side managed to get on the right track in the last couple of games.
Needing seven off the last two overs with nine wickets in hand, they should have wrapped the game against RCB much before the last ball and even in the IPL’s first double Super Over against Mumbai Indians on Sunday night, the K L Rahul-led side could have closed it out in regulation time.
Death bowing and the form of star player Glenn Maxwell in a shaky middle-order remain a concern for a team that needs to win its remaining five games to make the playoffs.
Meanwhile, Delhi Capitals will look to continue their winning momentum. While Prithvi Shaw needs to be back among the runs after a couple of ducks, his opening partner Shikhar Dhawan elevating his game bodes well for the team that has won seven out of the nine matches it has played.
With an envious bowling line-up, Delhi have shown they can defend even below-par totals. Playing in the absence of an injured Rishabh Pant, time is running out for Ajinkya Rahane to make an impact.
