    Preview: Match 14 – KXIP v PWI

    Unbeaten PWI take on winless KXIP in Mohali

    Mumbai 11 April 2012
    What

    Match 14 of the DLF IPL 2012 will feature two teams with contrasting fortunes thus far. Kings XI Punjab have struggled to compete and were beaten comprehensively in both their matches. Adam Gilchrist’s team will be glad to be back to familiar surroundings – they will be playing their first home game of the season – and will be keen to open their account.

    Sourav Ganguly’s Pune Warriors India meanwhile have won both their games; they first beat the Mumbai Indians at the Wankhede Stadium and then followed it up with a convincing victory over KXIP in Pune.

    When

    Thursday, April 12, 2011, 08:00 p.m.


    Where


    Punjab Cricket Association Stadium, Mohali


    The Protagonists


    For Kings XI Punjab to start competing, their captain Adam Gilchrist needs to start scoring big runs at the top of the order. For a team that doesn’t have many other match-winners, Gilchrist and his fellow Australian David Hussey – who is among the most-experienced cricketers in Twenty20 cricket – need to score the bulk of the runs. They will also need batsmen like Paul Valthaty to play the supporting role.

    KXIP will also look to give Azhar Mahmood his first IPL cap; the 37-year old has been in good form with the bat in Twenty20 cricket recently. His 117 Twenty20 appearances coupled with his all-round contribution could just be the boost his side needs.

    Pune Warriors India will be glad that their all-rounders are contributing; Marlon Samuels, Robin Uthappa and Steven Smith have been impressive in both the matches so far. Samuels has contributed with both bat and ball in both games, and Uthappa has scored valuable runs and has been very sharp behind the stumps.

    Previous Meetings


    Matches between Kings XI Punjab and the Pune Warriors India have so far been one-sided contests with the latter winning on all three occasions. In the most recent fixture between these teams at the magnificent Subrata Roy Sahara Stadium, PWI posted 166 for six batting first, and then restricted their opponents to 144 for eight to emerge victors by 22 runs.

    Trivia


    Adam Gilchrist is one of only two cricketers (the other being Chris Gayle) to have scored two centuries in the IPL.

    KXIP’s Azhar Mahmood has received 16 Man-of-the-Match awards in Twenty20 cricket; only Brad Hodge has won more – 17.

    What next?


    Both teams will return to action over the weekend. PWI will hurry back home following this fixture as they are scheduled to host the Chennai Super Kings on April 14. KXIP will take the field on Sunday afternoon when they clash with the Kolkata Knight Riders at the Eden Gardens on April 15.
