Who will come out on top?

Kings XI Punjab will host Delhi Daredevils in Match 36 of the 2017 Indian Premier League [IPL] season at the IS Bindra Stadium in Mohali on Sunday.

Both teams find themselves in the bottom half of the table and they will be desperate to register a win in this game.

In the reverse fixture, we saw Delhi thrash Punjab by 51 runs. But the Daredevils have failed to win a single match since then.

Ahead of the match, we have the latest team news, start time and how you can follow all of the action from the UAE.

TEAM NEWS, SQUADS, PREDICTED XIs

KXIP SQUAD: David Miller, Manan Vohra, Axar Patel, Murali Vijay, Glenn Maxwell, Gurkeerat Singh Mann, Anureet Singh, Sandeep Sharma, Shaun Marsh, Wriddhiman Saha, Nikhil Naik, Mohit Sharma, Marcus Stoinis, KC Cariappa, Armaan Jaffer, Pardeep Sahu, Swapnil Singh, Hashim Amla, Eoin Morgan, Martin Guptill, Matt Henry, Darren Sammy, T Natarajan, Varun Aaron, Rahul Tewatia, Rinku Singh, Ishant Sharma.

Martin Guptill got off to a quick start in the match against Sunrisers Hyderabad, but he wasn’t able to kick on and make a big score. If Hashim Amla is still unfit, the New Zealand opener is likely to be given another chance.

If left-arm pacer T. Natarajan is fit, expect him to come back into the team.

PREDICTED KXIP XI: Guptill, Vohra, Marsh, Maxwell (c), Morgan, Saha (wk), Axar, Mohit, Cariappa, Ishant, Natarajan.

DD SQUAD: Mohammed Shami, Karun Nair, Sam Billings, Shahbaz Nadeem, Jayant Yadav, Amit Mishra, Shreyas Iyer, Zaheer Khan, Sanju Samson, Chris Morris, Carlos Brathwaite, Rishabh Pant, CV Milind, Khaleel Ahmed, Pratyush Singh, Angelo Mathews, Corey Anderson, Kagiso Rabada, Pat Cummins, Ankit Bawne, Aditya Tare, Murugan Ashwin, Navdeep Saini, Shashank Singh, Ben Hilfenhaus, Marlon Samuels.

The Daredevils surely require a little more experience in their batting line-up and that could see the inclusion of West Indian batsman Marlon Samuels for this match.

The exclusion of Shahbaz Nadeem from the team for the last few matches has been really surprising considering he bowled at an economy rate of below five in the three matches he played in.

PREDICTED DD XI: Samson, Nair, Samuels, Iyer, Pant (wk), Anderson, Morris, Rabada, Mishra, Zaheer, Nadeem.
