We’ve witnessed several exciting Kings XI Punjab vs Delhi Capitals competitions over the years. When thinking about it, there are three specific showdowns that come to mind. Let’s take a quick look at them.
Nothing speaks more about the KXIP vs DC rivalry than the match that saw the two IPL cricket teams first collide. Before this historic event, the Delhi Daredevils (the team’s previous name) had won against Deccan Chargers and the Rajasthan Royals. The Kings XI Punjab had the opposite result, losing their first two games.
From the start, the Daredevils felt the tide turn when umpiring decisions went against them. KXIP pushed for the win, with Yuvraj Singh receiving an award for maximum sixes in the game. In the end, the Kings XI Punjab dominated with efficient bowling and won by four wickets.
The Delhi Daredevils would return the favour seven years later when they faced Kings XI Punjab at their last home game in the group stages. KXIP had finished batting with a final score of 118/8. While they still hoped to beat the Daredevils, the match was soon over when the opposing team reached 119/1.
The 9-wicket win allowed DC to move from sixth to fourth position, just shy of the Royal Challengers Bangalore. Despite the overwhelming victory, the Daredevils wouldn’t proceed further in the IPL that season. It didn’t stop them from smiling after crushing their rivals, with Nathan Coulter-Nile named Player of the Match.
The IPL 2016 season had seen a mixture of wins. The first KXIP vs DC match resulted in the Daredevils winning by eight wickets, while the second witnessed Kings XI Punjab claiming the game by nine runs. When the IPL 2017 season started, both teams were ready to show who was boss of the pitch.
The first game on 15 April 2017 didn’t bode well for KXIP, who lost by 51 runs. When the second game aired on 30 April 2017, Kings XI Punjab thrashed the opposing team by ten wickets in a fantastic victory of only 68 runs. Former England captain Nasser Hussain stated that he believed the Daredevil’s heads were no longer in the game after successive losses.
The IPL Delhi Capitals started in 2008 as the Delhi Daredevils. At that time, the Deccan Chargers used the abbreviation DC. While the team appeared in the IPL 2019 playoffs, they have yet to reach the finals.
When they formed in 2008 for the IPL, the GMR Group bought them at an auction in Mumbai. In 2018, they sold 50% of the shares to JSW Sports. The team’s name changed to Delhi Capitals to represent the area as the powerhouse of India.
The team plays all home games in Arun Jaitley Stadium, New Delhi when India hosts the IPL. They also reserve Shaheed Veer Narayan Singh International Stadium, Raipur, as a second location. There have been three different anthems between 2016 and 2019, namely ‘Dhuandaar Dilli’, ‘Dil Dilli hai, ab Dhadkega’ and ‘Roar Machaa.’
Amit Mishra is the top wicket-taker with Virender Sehwag as the best run-scorer. The Delhi Capital’s best results were two semi-finalist positions in 2008 and 2009, and ending third in the playoffs in 2012 and 2019. On 20 September 2020, they tied with KXIP while winning the Super Over.
The IPL Kings XI Punjab formed in 2008 when the tournament was established. Its headquarters are in Mohali, Punjab. When it comes to home games in India, they use PCA Stadium in Mohali. Team ownership splits between Mohit Burman, Preity Zinta, Ness Wadia and Karan Paul.
In 2010, controversy in the IPL saw the KXIP contract terminated. It resulted from issues between Lalit Modi and the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). Kings XI Punjab didn’t sit still, though, taking legal action against the BCCI and accusing them of wanting more lucrative offers.
Thanks to the high court, the BCCI reinstated the team. The season saw them ending 8th after losing several games. Their best results so far were as semi-finalists in 2008 and runners-up in 2014.
Shaun Marsh is Kings XI Punjab’s top run-scorer, with David Miller having a batting average of 43.72. When it comes to IPL 2020, eyes are on KL Rahul as the new captain to see how he balances running the team as one of the chief batsmen. Chris Gayle has a reputation for turning a game around, although he does seem to have an issue with consistency.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we’re seeing the IPL 2020 season starting later than usual. The first IPL 2020 DC vs KXIP game was played on 20 September, but there’s one more match where these rivals will face each other. It’ll be exciting to watch the event on 20 October 2020.
