In match 13 of VIVO 2019 (IPL 2019), (KXIP) will host (DC) at the PCA IS Bindra Stadium in Mohali on Monday. The clash will be interesting as both DC and KXIP won their previous matches against KKR and MI and are high on confidence. K L Rahul's 71 runs off 57 balls proved instrumental for Punjab's victory and marked the return of his form. Chris Gayle has found his rhythm and his teammate Mayank Agarwal has been attacking almost every other ball. Ashwin has been shuffling his bowling department and it looks likely that he would again bring a change or two in playing 11.

DC team news

Prithvi Shaw, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant are in supreme form and Shikhar Dhawan has not found the edge yet but when he takes the charge, there's no looking back. The bowling looks challenging and whatever changed they asre making, has been paying off.

Delhi made changes in the bowling department considering the pitch in Feroz Shah Kotla and are likely to shuffle more as the pitch is different in Mohali. Lamichhane is likely to play and Rabada may be they key pacer in the playing 11 but Chris Morris may have to be rested to make place for Ishant Sharma.

Harshal Patel may also have to sit in the dug out as Trent Boult or Keemo Paul may be included. Amit Mishra is likely to be in the playing 11 as he would be useful in the Mohali pitch.
