Kings XI Punjab v Delhi Capitals – Betting Tips and Prediction
Despite the difference in the way these teams started the IPL, this clash could again prove to be a close contest.
The first fixture between these two of this year’s tournament needed a super over and much could come down to how well the KXIP top order does once more.
That said, Delhi have a fine balance about their team and they are worthy favourites to take the win.
As ever, there are hundreds of other markets to consider beyond the outright winner prices.
Back KXIP for Highest Opening Partnership
Kings XI’s opening pair of Mayank Agarwal and KL Rahul have been a treat to watch so far this IPL, despite their team’s early struggles.
The pair sit in the top two in the run-scorer charts and have given their side excellent starts is the majority of their fixtures.
While Dhawan hit a brilliant ton for Delhi in their last fixture, Shubman Gill has been struggling for form recently.
Backing KXIP to have the highest opening partnership looks a good bet at 1.86 with 10CRIC.
Nortje the Value in Top Bowler Market
Anrich Nortje has been in eye-catching form for the Capitals in their last few outings.
He took two wickets against Rajasthan at this venue and backed it up with two more against CSK last time.
Fellow South African Rabada sits favourite to be top wicket-taker for DC in this one at 2.6. However, it means Nortje offers value given his recent form.
He can be backed at 4.0 with 22Bet to be his team’s top bowler.
Iyer to Shine with the Bat Again
Shreyas Iyer is another who has been in the runs this IPL. Backing him to continue that looks a solid selection in the Delhi top batsman market.
Dhawan will be favourite to take this again but with opener Shaw struggling for form and Rahane not firing at three, Iyer could get a chance to take the fight to KXIP early in the innings.
His price of 4.33 with bet365 to be DC’s top batsman looks too big.
