Kings XI Punjab had pulled off two back to back wins, to get their campaign back on track. Though Punjab will be comfortable in the last match after their victory, they need to be equally concerned about their results. It was a one-man-show for Punjab. Punjab has no support whatsoever from its team, apart from Rahul and Mayank Agarwal. Punjab will fall face down on any day that Rahul fails to score. They can’t afford to lose any match in this situation, and this is where KL Rahul wants his players to lend him a helping hand.
This season, Delhi has been exceptional. They are sitting at the helm of the table with 7 wins in 9 games, but they’re still some issue to be fixed. The shape of Prithvi Shaw is a big problem because Ajinkya Rahane has not been able to give Delhi the brisk start that is expected of him; he has failed to impress in the opportunities he has. The same goes for Shreays Iyer, who was cold and hot at the tournament. The Shikhar Dhawan form, however, will be a great relief. Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje were imposing in the bowling department and got strong support from the Indian spinners, Ravi Ashwin and Axar Patel.
The weather is anticipated to be bright in Dubai on Tuesday, with no cloud cover in the skies. There is no possibility of precipitation, and the temperature is predicted to be within the range of 29 to 31 degrees Celsius.
Batting off late at this venue has been much simpler in the second innings compared to the way it was earlier in the tournament. The batsmen will dominate the match, but some support from the pitch will also be available to the bowlers.

Both teams look fair in terms of skills, but Punjab’s issue has been their overreliance on KL Rahul, which in the long run can hurt them badly. In this fight, Delhi has a definite advantage over Punjab. Let’s back Delhi Capital to beat Kings XI Punjab at baji.live now!
