While teams of the likes of Chennai Super Kings have excelled at home, Delhi Capitals have struggled. Out of four matches at Feroz Shah Kotla this IPL season, they have only managed to win one and that too in Super Over. On the road, they have picked four wins – three on trot.

IPL Fantasy Predictions

On Sunday, they will lock horns with Kings XI Punjab – a team they lost to earlier in the season in Mohali.

Time and again they have failed to ace home conditions. In their previous match, against Mumbai Indians, on a slow and low Kotla surface, Delhi’s spinners bowled well but their batsmen failed spectacularly when chasing 169.

On the other hand, Punjab’s fortunes have oscillated between the sublime and the mediocre. They have not progressed beyond two wins in a row and have lost three of their last five matches.

DELHI Predicted XI: 1 Prithvi Shaw/Manjot Kalra, 2 Shikhar Dhawan, 3 Colin Munro, 4 Shreyas Iyer (capt), 5 Rishabh Pant (wk), 6 Axar Patel, 7 Chris Morris, 8 Keemo Paul/Sandeep Lamichhane, 9 Kagiso Rabada, 10 Ishant Sharma, 11 Amit Mishra

Punjab Predicted XI: 1 KL Rahul, 2 Chris Gayle, 3 Mayank Agarwal, 4 David Miller, 5 Nicholas Pooran (wk), 6 Mandeep Singh, 7 R Ashwin (capt), 8 Mujeeb Ur Rahman, 9 Mohammed Shami, 10 M Ashwin, 11 Arshdeep Singh
