KXIP and DD have consistently failed to even make it to the top four. Out of the 10 editions of IPL, Delhi Daredevils was knocked outside the top 4 seven times and King XI Punjab missed the position eight times.
However, there is still hope for both the team. Gautam Gambhir, the captain of the ship for Delhi Daredevils have already sailed Kolkata’s ship twice to the title. Whereas, R Ashwin have had great exposure and winning experience from his stint in CSK team.
KXIP And DD have been at par teams for the past decade, coincidentally both the teams have lost 6 opening matches. Who do you think will stick at 6 and who will shift to 7?
