Hashim Amla, who missed Kings XI’s last game with a hamstring injury, attended optional training so he has a chance to play the next match.
Kings XI could include New Zealand fast bowler Matt Henry instead of Eoin Morgan or David Miller to beef up their bowling attack which has only taken 36 wickets in their eight games.
Punjab has won just 3 matches out of 8. They are not looking very strong. In the start they were strong enough but as the time is passing they are not winning matches.
Delhi on the other side is at last position by just winning 2 matches out of 7.
Daredevils’ inexperienced batting line-up have not been able to handle the pressure of a chase, losing all of their three matches batting second.
Karun Nair’s poor form has also been a problem for DD. He has scored 78 runs at an average of 13.
This season: Delhi Daredevils won against Kings XI Punjab at their first home game at Feroz Shah Kotla.
Overall: In 19 games between these two teams, Kings XI have won 10 times.Kings XI have lost Daredevils four times in their last five matches but, in Mohali, they have lost only once in four games.

Watch out for
Even though he does not have a lot of experience but he has excellent talent. He can score a lot of runs with his bat.
Most probably Hashim Amla will be playing tomorrow’s match. He is a player who has a class apart. He can stay on the crease for a long time and can score quick runs in the end. He is showing up a great T20 player with his batting.
