It will be a match-up between the bottom dwellers from the last season, but one of the two will be able to open their account in the points table as Delhi Daredevils lock horns with Kings XI Punjab at the Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium in Delhi on Friday (April 15)
Coming back to their homeground would be a confidence booster for Delhi Daredevils, however, their batting needs massive improvement. That the batting-heavy team could only scamper to a meagre total of 98 on a pitch which had no demons reflects very poorly on a side that is hoping to shrug off their tag as wooden spoon contenders.
What bodes well for the visitors is the fact that their batting order looks in good form. Expect for their famed duo - captain David Miller and their star attraction Glenn Maxwell - all the batsmen got good starts in their opener. If Miller and Maxwell find their rhythm, the team's fortunes will see a rapid rise.
