Watch the live stream of Kings XI vs Delhi in the 2013 IPL.
Where: HPCA Stadium
When: 14.30 BST
Kings XI Punjab can continue their unlikely attempt to make the play-offs today in the 2013 IPL but a win is absolute necessary against Delhi Daredevils.
Adam Gilchrist’s side must triumph in their remaining two fixtures and hope others around them drop points to be in with a chance of making the top four.
As for Delhi their hopes of making the play-offs were wiped out a long time ago and they now have nothing but pride to play for.
That being said, with bottom placed Pune Warriors India securing an unlikely victory over Kolkata Knight Riders on Wednesday, the two franchises are tied on six points and the Daredevils would like to avoid finishing last.
It’s been a difficult season for Mahela Jayawardene and his team as early injuries to key players Kevin Pietersen and Virender Sehwag ruled the two batsmen out – although Sehwag has since returned.
Likewise New Zealand’s Jesse Ryder was also unable to feature in the tournament after being attacked outside out a bar in Christchurch.
As for Punjab it has been an indifferent campaign, as inconsistency crept in and left the side just short of realistically competing for the play-offs.
Experiments were made with dropping captain Gilchrist due to his poor performances with the bat but the veteran Australian has since returned to resume his position.
It’s likely to be a hard fought contest today between two teams with much to prove.
