Returning from an eight-wicket drubbing at the hands of Kolkata Knight Riders, Kings XI Punjab will face a daunting task when they take on a resurgent Delhi Daredevils in an Indian Premier League (IPL) 2017 match at the Feroz Shah Kotla.

Delhi's confidence got a major boost after the massive 97-run victory against Rising Pune Supergiants on Tuesday, thanks to an all-round show from the likes of centurion Sanju Samson, Chris Morris, skipper Zaheer Khan and leg-spinner Amit Mishra.

The visitors, on the other hand, failed to extend their two-match winning momentum when after being outplayed by KKR at the Eden Gardens on Thursday.
