Kings XI Punjab vs Delhi Daredevils Betting: Kings XI can pick up the win they need to keep playoff hopes alive
It really is crunch time in the race for the playoff spots in the Indian Premier League and the double header of matches on Saturday will go a long way to deciding which four teams compete in the playoffs. The double header begins in Dharamsala where the Kings XI Punjab will take on the table topping Delhi Daredevils in a match where everything is on the line for the Kings XI.
Kings XI come into the match one point behind Chennai Super Kings in fourth place but the defending champions have played all their matches so a win here will put Kings XI fourth and then they will be hoping Bangalore don’t win their last match. Kings XI are 6/5 with Skybet to win this match and a win here would be their second win in a row in Dharamsala after they all but ended the hopes of Chennai here on Thursday.
Delhi lost to the Royal Challengers Bangalore on Thursday in a high scoring match, a match which they were without their skipper Virender Sehwag for as he was ill while Morne Morkel was rested. Given that Delhi are into the playoffs already those two could be saved for the playoffs rather than risked here although were Delhi to win this match they will be guaranteed top spot in the table which technically earns a smoother path to the final.
Kings XI are on a bit of a high at the minute having won three of their last four matches and with Dharamsala suiting them I think they are worth a bet here. It is only natural for Delhi to save themselves a bit for the playoffs and if they are even slightly off their game then the Kings XI can capitalise fully on that. With Gilchrist back and straight back into the runs they have the personnel to win this one.
