IPL 2018 22nd Match: DD vs KXIP Match Predictions
The top and bottom teams of the IPL go head to head in this one, and while some may have predicted bottom for the Delhi Daredevils, few would have predicted top spot for the Kings XI Punjab. They have started the season very well, with an influx of veteran players really helping them transform the poor form they showed over the past couple of years. They will aim to maintain their good start, and based on what we have seen so far from Delhi, they look to have a great chance of picking up their 5th win of the season and keeping top spot. Who will win 22nd April DD vs KXIP prediction is placed below.
The Kings XI won again on Saturday, beating the Kolkata Knight Riders via the DL method in a rain affected game. However, had the game gone the full distance, they looked in full control and would more than likely have won anyway. KL Rahul and Chris Gayle got them off to the perfect start at the top of the order, Rahul scored 60 runs off just 27 balls while Gayle was on 62 not out from 38 when the game was stopped. With those two, Aaron Finch, Yuvraj Singh and Karun Nair they have quality and experience in their batting line up, and that has been the reason they have had so much success this season, and something they will want to see continue.
The Delhi Daredevils have won just one of their five games so far as they continue to struggle. They were beaten on Saturday by the Royal Challenger Bangalore, putting 174 on the board which the Challengers chased down with two overs to spare. The one thing the Daredevils had in their lone victory was a great start and that came from Englishman Jason Roy, who scored 91 not out from 53 balls in that game. He is key to this team, and can score valuable runs if he gets in, more is needed from Roy is the Daredevils are to get out of the trouble they are in. DD vs KXIP match prediction 22nd April 2018 is placed below.
