Mohali:

Already assured of a berth in the knockout stage, table-toppers Kings XI Punjab will look to consolidate their position at the top with another win when they take on laggards Delhi Daredevils in an inconsequential Indian Premier League tie on Sunday.

KXIP, the most dominant so far in the seventh edition of the cash-rich event, are placed comfortably on the top of the table with 20 points, having won 10 out of their 13 matches.

Delhi, on the other hand are lying at the bottom of the table with just two wins from 13 outings. The Punjab outfit once again stamped its authority here on Friday when it put up yet another clinical performance to register a 16-run win over Rajasthan Royals.

In contrast, Delhi slumped to a 15-run defeat against Mumbai Indians. DD have an uphill task at hands today against a side which is thriving in all departments of the game. Punjab's batting has been their mainstay this season.

The fact that young domestic players like Manan Vohra have been delivering alongwith stars like Glenn Maxwell, David Miller, Virender Sehwag, captain George Bailey, speaks volume about the side, capable of intimidating any opponent.

Be it batting or bowling, all those youngsters who are on the bench, have also shown their mettle as and when they have got an opportunity. DD's campaign this season has been in dire straits. Their batting has failed to click in unison and the bowling has been far from impressive.
