Resurgent Kings XI Punjab will be looking to continue their winning run when they take on table-toppers Delhi Capitals in the 38th match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020.
With two back-to-back wins, Kings XI Punjab have kept their slim playoff hopes alive. Their chances of making it to the next round was looking all but over after they had managed to win just one of their opening seven games. However, two impressive wins over Royal Challengers Bangalore and defending champions have put them back into contention.
With only three wins from 9 games, Kings XI Punjab cannot afford another slip up. Another defeat will all but seal their fate in this year’s competition. Delhi Capitals, on the other hand, have all but ensured their passage to the next round after winning seven of their first nine games.
More wins will only take them closer to the top two spots in the points table. They have the momentum on their side too and will be looking to register another win tonight.
Delhi Capitals have won the toss and have elected to bat first against Kings XI Punjab.
