Other then DC and KXIP having equal number of victories at Kotla, there is another stat which lies between between both the team. As far as the average score against each other is concerned, the teams of the Northern derby have both have an average score of 140 against each other.
DC vs KXIP – Paper value
In terms of the playing XI is concerned, Kings XI captain Ravichandran Ashwin has made some surprising calls. While he has backed his decision with desired results, Punjab still lack behind on comparison with Delhi merely on paper.
Given KXIP’s overall record against DC, the visitors would be backing themselves ahead of the all-important clash. However, despite Delhi having a poor home record and Punjab having a poor away record, it calls for a thriller tonight. While both of the teams are also better at defending than chasing a total, the team which bats first will be the favourites tonight.
