P Patel Under 44.5 runs @ 1.90 (Bet365) – 5 points (#INPLAYMAGIC)

Delhi Daredevils v Kings XI Punjab
V Sehwag  Under 22.5 runs @ 1.90 (Bet365) – 3 points (#INPLAYMAGIC)

M Vohra Under 24.5 runs @ 1.90 (Bet465) – 3 points (#INPLAYMAGIC)
Imran Tahir – 30 & Over performance points @ 1.83 (Bet365) – 2.5 points

Imran Tahir is one of the form bowlers of this IPL and is now the leading wicket taker with 13 wickets from the 7 games that he has played. Tahir has had a field time in IPL with a good partnership with Amit Mishra, that has helped put pressure on both ends which inevitably lands up in him picking up the wickets.

In the last few games however, he hasn’t had much of a score to defend as his teams have scored pretty low, but when there is around  a 150 score on the board, then Tahir is into action. His performances in the last few games stand as follows:

v RCB: 3 points (3 runs)
v MI   : 70 points (3 wickets, 1 catch)
v KKR: 30 points (1 wicket, 1 catch)
v SRH: 20 pints (1 wicket)
v KXIP: 60 points (3 wickets)
v RR: 80 points (4 wickets)
v CSK: 22 points (2 runs, 1 wicket)

He has been a fairly consistent bowler and he has been effective at Delhi since the ground is slightly bigger and when players try to slog him especially against the turn, he is into his element. I don’t see any reason against a struggling Kings XI Punjab team, who really are bad against spin, for Tahir to take 2 wickets tonight.
