Current wins and performance of Kings XL Punjab and Delhi Capitals
A victory for Kings XL Punjab that is no doubt the best and most nerve-wracking T20 game ever played. With chaos taking over the Kings XL Punjab team won a double Super Over clash against the Mumbai Indians (MI) giving us a ray of hope. However, things have taken an about-turn that brought the game into a do or dies situation.
The IPL is a bit like a horse race, and where the last four teams have 6 points in their bag. With KL Rahul’s back-to-back victories it won’t be wrong to say he has a pretty good chance of winning the next playoff. Even though KR Rahul and Mayank Agarwal are ruling the charts with the highest runs Punjab has only scored big in three wins but with Chris Gayle’s introduction, the team will certainly give a boost to the team.
Meanwhile, the Delhi Capitals have been giving outstanding performance this year. Many of the main players have been missing owing to their injury but the team did not give any disappointing performance as every player has to give their best to bring victory.
Similar to their opponents they have 7 wins in their bags and the victory of the last match against the Chennai Super Kings was outstanding with courtesy Shikhar Dhawan’s sensational 101-run.
