After a sensational win in their previous encounter, Kings XI Punjab is set to host Delhi Capitals at Mohali for another intriguing contest. Kings XI Punjab will try to tame the young guns while the visitors will be determined to keep their winning form. We can expect a thrilling showdown when both these sides will battle it out tonight in the 13th fixture of the Indian Premier League.

Kings XI Punjab registered a comprehensive win against the Mumbai Indians when they defeated the Blue Army by eight wickets. Having won the toss, Punjab opted to field first, and Mumbai posted 176 runs on the board. In reply, Punjab’s top three batsmen did the bulk of scoring to chase the total down with eight balls to spare. Chris Gayle and KL Rahul have given the hosts a flying start so far in the tournament so that the middle order finds it easy to capitalize. Ravichandran Ashwin has led his team tremendously well in this campaign, and his team has the potential to go all the way to the playoffs.

Delhi Capitals is also on a roll after their nail-biting finish in the Super Over against the Kolkata Knight Riders. Kagiso Rabada bowled a sensational super over to take the Capitals over the line by four runs. With Sourav Ganguly and Ricky Ponting at the helm, the visitors have looked a different side in that sky blue outfit. The team is filled with emerging young talents like Prithvi Shaw, Rishabh Pant, Shreyas Iyer along with seasoned campaigners like Shikhar Dhawan, Amit Mishra and Chris Morris which makes them a complete team. The visitors would be eyeing to outplay the high-flying Kings XI Punjab in front of their home crowd.
