Two confident sides, DD and Kings XI to clash tonight
Kings XI Punjab and Delhi Daredevils are high on confidence after they won their last matches quite comfortably. Delhi Daredevils chased a score of 160 plus runs with three overs to spare against Mumbai Indians and only lost one wicket in the process.

Kings XI Punjab was no different while pulling off an amazing feat of chasing 180 plus runs in a thrilling finish, which went down to the last over of the match against Pune Warriors. These two teams will clash later tonight at Feroz Shah Kotla in Delhi.

Though Daredevils are languishing at the bottom half of the table with a single victory, but smiles were back in their camp, when one of their key players, Virender Sehwag rocketed back to form with an innings of 95 runs. But other important players such as Mahela Jayawardene and David Warner need to score the chunk of the runs with some little contributions from other players.

The Delhi bowlers need to come up with the goods as their batsmen will not find it easy to chase down huge scores on a regular basis. The bowlers also need to take them to the finishing line. Delhi bowlers have failed in spite of having some big domestic names such as Irfan Pathan, Ashish Nehra and Umesh Yadav, but what they lack is a quality spinner. It is this weak link, which the Kings XI Punjab batsmen would look to exploit.

Only David Hussey has been in good form, but other players such as Mandeep Singh, M. Vohra, Azhar Mahmood have contributed with the bat, but not consistently enough. Adam Gilchrist has been a biggest disappointment so far for the Kings XI Punjab. Much would be expected from the hero of their last match, David Miller after his match winning knock of 80 runs.

The Kings XI Punjab bowlers are aware of Virender Sehwag and would love to dismiss him early, as he can tear the bowling apart. Praveen Kumar with his in-swingers could be the best bowler to dismiss him early else if Sehwag stays at the crease for a longer duration, none of the Kings XI bowlers would be able to stop the run flow. It is Sehwag's batting, which could be a difference between the two sides tonight.
