PREVIEW: Having lost their respective opening matches, Delhi Daredevils (DD) and Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) will aim to return to winning ways when they face each other in an Indian Premier League (IPL) clash at the Ferozshah Kotla Stadium in New Delhi on Friday.
Delhi, the perennial under-achievers of the IPL, were thrashed by nine wickets by the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) at the Eden Gardens. The Delhi batsmen were guilty of poor shot selection on a spinning track and were bundled out for a mere 98 runs after being asked to bat first.
Punjab on the other hand, was torn apart by a whirlwind innings from Aaron Finch and went down to newcomers Gujarat Lions by five wickets.
Openers Murali Vijay and Manan Vohra had given them a promising start. But the middle-order batsmen could not built on it. A 22-ball 33 by Marcus Stoinis lower down the order helped Punjab put up a competitive total of 161 for nine.
The Punjab bowlers also need to pull up their socks. Former Australian fast bowler Mitchell Johnson was a shadow of his former self while Sandeep Sharma, Mohit Sharma, Pradeep Sahu and Marcus Stoinis also conceeded plenty of runs.
