 PREVIEW ipl MATCH 2:Kings XI Punjab vs Delhi Daredevils : new look led under Ravichandran Ashwin Kings XI Punjab and gautam gambhir led Delhi Daredevils will look to end their trophy drought in the Indian Premier League (IPL). Both KXIP and DD have never previously won the IPL title.  Match starts at 4 pm IST on Sunday. The match is expected to be hotly contested as both sides will be eager to begin their campaign with a win.

Led by Ravichandran Ashwin, KXIP are hoping to make a strong start to their campaign KXIP retained only one player   (Axar Patel) during the retention window and they let go player like maxwell, sandeep sharma,  all though they had manage to buy david miller ipl auction  and strung together a new-look side by signing up players at the Auction. They   made indian off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin has been handed the captaincy of the team which was not surprising ,  now they has a good mix of exciting young performers and international stars. The KXIP coaching staff and captain Ashwin – who is the only ‘bowler captain’ in this IPL – have the difficult task of choosing the eleven players who can do the job on the day, and assign them to roles they’re comfortable playing, while also maintaining the balance and meeting the four overseas players criteria.With Aaron Finch unavailable due to personal commitments, opening the batting for Punjab will be Chris Gayle. Gayle is the only batsmen to accumulate more than 10,000 runs in the shortest format and if he gets going then KXIP will be hard to stop with several other hard-hitters in their line-up.  , KXIP still have four quality openers in , Karun Nair, KL Rahul and the in-form Mayank Agarwal; which two will walk out to open the innings &how the others adapt to middle-order roles will be interesting to watch. Yuvraj Singh, David Miller& Marcus Stoinis make up a solid middle order Punjab mentor and former Indian aggressive batsman Virender Sehwag rated the new-look team as the best of all seasons.
“We have the best side, if I compare last ten years,” Sehwag said, adding that the team is a balanced one with a right mix of Indian and foreign playersBoth Sehwag and head coach Brad Hodge heaped praise on Ashwin, even though captaining an IPL side may be the off-spinner’s maiden role, and feel that a “smart cricketer” like him will inspire the team.

while Delhi Daredevils, under the new leadership of Gautam Gambhir, will also hope to begin their campaign on a winning note.With the injury to south africa pace bowler  Kagiso Rabada, DD have suffered a huge setback before the tournament  begin. However, Gambhir’s optimism coupled with coach Ricky Ponting’s aggressive mindset will not let the devils get bogged down and their approach in the tournament will be worth the watch The Delhi Daredevils have not progressed past the league stage in the last four seasons; their owners and supporters will be hoping this team, under Gautam Gambhir – who has previously led the Kolkata Knight Riders to two titles, can put an end to that streak and win some silverware. delhi daredevils have great mixture youth and experience, it seems Delhi have all the bases covered. But  they might be exposed is the lack of an experienced middle-order they don’t have experience batsmans in middle order . Quite similar to KXIP, DD too have suffered collapses due to an unseasoned middle-order. In high-scoring run chases, this might well become the determining factor for a win or loss All-rounders Chris Morris and Glenn Maxwell will lend depth to Delhi’s bowling and batting department. With the likes of Gambhir, Colin Munro, Shreyas Iyer, Jason Roy and Prithvi Shaw, the side has the ability to go for big totals England fast bowler, Liam Plunkett has been brought in by Delhi Daredevils as a replacement for  Kagiso Rabada for the 11th edition of the Indian Premier League. Plunkett has featured in 13 Tests, 65 One-Day Internationals and 15 T20 Internationals for England so far. This will be Plunkett’s first stint in the IPL
