Kings XI Punjab:
The Kings XI have finally found their rhythm by winning 2 consecutive matches and are currently at the 6th position on the points table with three wins and six losses and a total of 6 points.
KL Rahul has appeared to be in brilliant form, scoring runs from the top, and has been the leading run-scorer so far in this season. He has been accompanied by another brilliant batsman Mayank Agarwal who has looked in excellent form, and with Chris Gayle’s inclusion, the batting line-up looks even more vital.
Nicholas Pooran has been doing a great job in the middle-order, but Maxwell’s form has been a big concern for KXIP as he has not been able to hit even a single six for this season. Deepak Hooda performed well in the last match by batting brilliantly in the lower middle-order.
Mohammad Shami bowled brilliantly in the last match and in the super over and consistently picked up wickets. Ravi Bishnoi and Murgun Ashwin bowled decently and picking up important wickets at the crucial time. Chris Jordan and the youngster Arshdeep Singh have also been performing their role pretty well.
If KXIP keeps performing like this in every match, they have a perfect chance of qualifying for playoffs.

The Delhi Capitals have performed brilliantly so far as they are currently at the 1st position on the points table with seven wins and 2 losses and a total of 14 points.
With Dhawan getting back in form, DC has become the strongest side in the Dream11 IPL. He scored a brilliant unbeaten hundred in the last match and led his team to victory. Prithvi Shaw’s form might be an area of concern for the Capitals as he has not performed in the previous few matches.

Marcus Stoinis and Axar Patel have been the best find for DC because they have been entirely contributing with both bat and ball. The bowling attack has been the best among all the teams, with Kagiso Rabada bowling exceptionally well and is the leading wicket-taker so far in the tournament.
Anrich Nortje and Tushar Deshpande have been bowling at an excellent speed and troubling the batsmen with the pace. Ashwin has also been picking up wickets and leading the spin attack along with Axar Patel.
DC has almost qualified for playoffs, and they need to play the same way they have been doing, and they can win the trophy this year.
