After a sensational win in their previous encounter, Kings XI Punjab are set to host Delhi Capitals at Mohali for another intriguing IPL 2019 contest. The Kings XI will try to tame the young guns while being aided by home comforts, while the visitors will be determined to keep their winning form going.

In their previous match, against Mumbai Indians, Punjab opted to field first and allowed Mumbai to post 176 runs on the board. In reply, Punjab’s top three batsmen did the bulk of the scoring to chase the total down with eight balls to spare.

Chris Gayle and KL Rahul have given the hosts some good starts so far in the tournament, and the middle order has then capitalized. Ravichandran Ashwin has led his team tremendously well in this campaign, and many believe Punjab have the potential to go all the way to the playoffs.

Delhi Capitals on their part are also on a roll after their nail-biting finish against the Kolkata Knight Riders. Kagiso Rabada bowled a sensational Super Over to take the Capitals over the line by four runs.

With Sourav Ganguly and Ricky Ponting at the helm, the visitors have looked a different side in their blue outfits. The team is filled with emerging young talents like Prithvi Shaw, Rishabh Pant and Shreyas Iyer along with seasoned campaigners like Shikhar Dhawan, Amit Mishra and Chris Morris, making them a complete team.

The Kings XI Punjab vs Delhi Capitals (previously Daredevils) rivalry has seen some electrifying contests in the past, and today's game promises to be another.
