KXIP should have it easy

Mohali: Already assured of a berth in the play-offs, table-toppers Kings XI Punjab will look to consolidate their position at the top with another win when they take on laggards Delhi DareDevils in an inconsequential IPL tie, here, on Sunday.

KXIP, the most dominant team so far in the seventh edition, are placed comfortably on the top of the table with 20 points, having won 10 out of their 13 ties. DareDevils, on the other hand are lying at the bottom of the table with just two wins from 13 outings.

DareDevils have an uphill task on Sunday against a side which is thriving in all departments of the game.

KXIP’s batting has been their mainstay this season. The fact that young domestic players like Manan Vohra have been delivering alongwith stars like Glenn Maxwell, David Miller, Virender Sehwag, captain George Bailey, speaks volume about the side, capable of intimidating any opponent.

Be it batting or bowling, all those youngsters who are on the bench, have also shown their mettle. (agencies)
