Hello and welcome to CricketCountry’s coverage of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2014 Match 55 between Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) and Delhi Daredevils (DD). I am Nishad Pai Vaidya and will take you through the game. This match is being held at the Punjab Cricket Association Stadium, Mohali. This is a clash between the top and bottom teams in IPL 7. Punjab have qualified for the IPL 2014 playoffs while also sealing first spot in the Points Table. Delhi will finish eighth and last this season. Punjab have played 13 matches and won 10. Delhi have played 13 matches and lost 11.

For Punjab, this match will represent a warm-up ahead of their Qualifier 1 against Kolkata Knight Riders. They will want to go into that match with a win as momentum would be crucial. For Delhi, they only have pride to play for. They are on a wretched run and would look to end their highly disappointing season with a win.
