Day 2 of IPL All-Time XI: KXIP and DC!
Today, Glenn Maxwell and Alex Carey forged a remarkable partnership to seal a memorable win for Australia, resulting in England’s team first ODI loss at home in 4 years.
Guess what? Maxwell will be representing Kings XI Punjab this season, while Carey will be playing for the Delhi Capitals, so let us talk about them today.
KXIP and DC – Who Are They?
DC and KXIP – these teams are an enigma. They have some of the best players but never manage to go far in the tournament barring a season here or there.
Delhi Capitals, formerly the Delhi Daredevils have had players like ABD, Dilshan, David Warner, even Andre Russell and Gautam Gambhir, Dinesh Karthik from the Indian contingent. For some reason, they performed well after they were released by Delhi.
Alright, Ready for the VOTING? Tip: Both teams have bought great players on paper in the past, but can you remember if they actually performed well with KXIP or DC?
- Amla, Sangakkara, and Jayawardene all had good records at KXIP but did they play enough?
- Virender Sehwag and Irfan Pathan are present in both lists, will you pick them in either? Does Yuvi even make it for Punjab?
- Chris Gayle was a star for RCB, but has he done enough for KXIP?
