Its 15 April 2016 and after the successful T20 World cup season in India, its time for IPL 2016 to kick in. Its been a while since the games have started but the IPL T20 games are getting hotter and hotter.
Gujarat Lions are leading the IPL 2016 table with 2 wins in two games and others have managed 1 win after two games and few others have managed no win so far.
Delhi Daredevils and Kings 11 Punjab are two such teams. In IPL 2016 Kings 11 Punjab team has a great balance. Delhi on the other hand looks not quite solid. Both the teams have not managed even a single win in their first game. Therefore, little bit of pressure is mounted on both teams to get through this with a much needed win to start kick things of at IPL 2016.
David Miller, Kings 11 Punjab captain doesn’t seem to have a good fortune in the first game. But the international player is looking to pull off the first and much needed win in their second encounter with the Delhi Daredevils.
The young and inexperienced players is looking like a trouble for KXIP right now. Fortunately for kings 11, Delhi Team in IPL 2016 also has similar problem. So it should be a balanced game and the win can go to any side right now.
First game for Kings 11 Punjab has been a disaster though. They managed to score 161 runs in their respective 20 overs but have failed to defent the today against the current table leaders of IPL 2016, Gujarat Lions.
Possible Kings 11 Team for Today’s Match:
Manan VOHRA, Murali VIJAY, Glenn MAXWELL, Wriddhiman SAHA, David MILLER, Axar PATEL, Marcus STOINIS, Pardeep SAHU, Mitchell JOHNSON, Mohit SHARMA, Sandeep SHARMA.
Manan VOHRA and Murali VIJAY scored good runs in the previous game against GL but the middle order failed to impress. Marcus Stoinis’s quick 33 runs did add to the score but it was not quite good enough for them to win the match.
So its clear that Manan VOHRA, Murali VIJAY and Marcus Stoinis are the best batsman for kings 11 Punjab. None of the bowlers helped them in their previous game. Marcus Stoinis is the only best KXIP bowler who controlled runs flow and picked up a single wicket.
Hope KXIP gets better of the great players they have and win this match.
