Both Punjab and Delhi are high on confidence after morale-boosting wins and lock horns in Match 13 of the Indian T20 League at the IS Bindra Stadium in Mohali on Monday. (WATCH: Rabada leads Delhi to Super-Over win against Kolkata after Shaw’s 99)

Punjab were clinical in their eight-wicket victory over Mumbai, while Delhi, who won the first Super Over this season, stymied Kolkata’s two-match winning run, and will want to carry the momentum.

The Ravichandran Ashwin-led are in the process of making Mohali their happy hunting ground. They played four matches last year at the IS Bindra Stadium and won all of them before they shifted base to Indore.

Chris Gayle’s form a huge positive for Punjab. The Jamaican got going on Saturday but was dismissed on 40 off 24 balls. Murugan Ashwin, the legspinner, who replaced the unfit Varun Chakravarthy, scalped two wickets and looks set for another match.

Delhi can take a lot of heart from the way young Prithvi Shaw batted. The U-19 World Cup-winning captain fell one run short of a century which would have made him the youngest centurion in the history of the tournament. South Africa pacer Kagiso Rabada, the star of the Super Over, was expensive and will look to improve on Monday. Will Delhi breach a Punjab fortress in the making? Let’s wait and watch!

Teams

Punjab

Murugan Ashwin, the legspinner, who replaced the unfit mystery spinner Varun Chakravarthy, scalped two wickets (of Yuvraj Singh and Suryakumar Yadav) and went for 25 runs against Mumbai, which should raise his stakes for another appearance on Monday. The top order looks settled with Chris Gayle in good touch. Although he took time to break the shackles, KL Rahul has found himself among runs. Punjab will want to retain their winning combination and one hardly expect any changes.

Probable XI: 1. Chris Gayle, 2. KL Rahul, 3. Mayank Agarwal, 4. David Miller, 5. Sarfraz Khan, 6. Mandeep Singh, 7. Hardus Viljoen, 8. Ravichandran Ashwin, 9. Murugan Ashwin, 10. Mohammed Shami, 11. Andrew Tye

Delhi

Delhi made four changes against Kolkata – Hanuma Vihari occupied the middle order, while Chris Morris, the lower-middle order followed by Nepal spinner Sandeep Lamichhane and fast bowler Harshal Patel. Kagiso Rabada, who underlined his class in the Super Over, was expensive in his four overs against Kolkata going for 41 runs and will look to improve. Patel took two wickets but went for 40 runs in his four overs, while Morris returned with one for 35 in his four overs. It was Lamichhane (1/29) who stemmed the flow of runs and Delhi would want to continue with him to keep the likes of Gayle quiet.

Probable XI: 1. Prithvi Shaw, 2. Shikhar Dhawan, 3. Shreyas Iyer, 4. Colin Ingram, 5. Rishabh Pant, 6. Hanuma Vihari, 7. Chris Morris, 8. Harshal Patel, 9. Kagiso Rabada, 10. Amit Mishra, 11. Sandeep Lamichhane
