IPL 12 Match 13 KXIP vs DC at the PCA IS Bindra Stadium, Mohali: The Delhi Capitals avert a mix up as Mandeep Singh dives and saves another run or two for his team, Pant runs halfway down the pitch but is send back by Ingram. Mandeep had to turn and twist his body to throw it to the bowler’s end. The throw is wide too, Pant puts in the dive and has hirt his finger. The medics attend him bringing the game to brief halt. Ingram gets the second boundary off the over as the equation comes down to 50 runs needed off 36 balls.
IPL 2019, KXIP vs DC, Today’s Match Preview: Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) host Delhi Capitals (DC) in the 13th game of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2019, a contest dubbed by few as the ‘Northern Derby’, at the IS Bindra Punjab Cricket Association Stadium in Mohali on Monday.
Both KXIP and DC won their respective encounters during Saturday’s double-header, albeit in contrasting manners. While a blazing, unbeaten half-century from opener KL Rahul helped Kings XI chase down the 177-run target set by Mumbai Indians with eight wickets and as many deliveries to spare, Delhi were held to a tie by Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) at the Feroz Shah Kotla after a majestic 99 by Prithvi Shaw put them on course towards an easy win. Kagiso Rabada then bowled a series of yorkers to successfully defend 10 runs in the Super Over for the Capitals.
DC and KXIP currently occupy the fourth and fifth slots in the points table with two victories apiece — Delhi being ahead due to a superior net run-rate. The winner of this contest could dislodge the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) from their perch at the top of the table, provided they are able to better their NRR (+0.577). CSK collected their third win in as many games on Sunday evening, pipping Rajasthan Royals (RR) in a cliffhanger to walk away with an eight-run win.
