Form Chart

DC  :  L-W-

KXP : L-L-


DC : 3.5/5

Steady. I like their bowling attack. Vaas, Ohja and  RP form a good trio, and they are consistent. The remaining 8-10 overs  could pose a problem , but Rohit Sharma has filled in really well in his bowling avatar. Symonds and Suman pitch in too.

KXP: 1.5/5

Great on paper, poor on form. They need Lee back.  Sreesanth got bitchslapped around by Uthappa and friends in the previous game, and will be looking to make amends. They might want to sit Abdulla and bring in  hopes.  Piyush is good and so is Powar, they need to bring him back too.

Face off:

KXP Bowling vs DC Batting:  ADVANTAGE DC

DC’s big players are on song, and that’s bad news for the struggling Kings.  Kings need to play their best bowlers , and that would mean that Powar needs to get a look in.

DC Bowling vs KXP Batting:   EVEN

Bopara and Bisla showed spunk. Jaya was in some fluid form. Time for Yuvi and Sanga to shine against a well-oiled DC Bowling machine.

Prediction:  I  think KXP registers their first win, courtesy Yuvi and the batsmen, with a good spell coming from their spinners to bring about a deccan downfall.
