Kings XI Punjab gears up by beating Deccan Chargers in their 13th match. It just has one match left and must have to win against Chennai Super Kings to be qualified for the semifinals. CSK is the second highest points holder till now. The team is doing very well than past year.


IPL Punjab had no possibility reach in the top four this year. But, the wins against Deccan Charger and the only competitor Rajasthan Royals’ defeat has open the door.


Punjab’s Captain is considered as one of the hard hitter batsmen in Twenty20 formatted cricket tournaments. He proved in different stage too. But the IPL edition 2 presents another Yuvraj as a bower. He has achieved two time hat-tick records this season.

46th match | Kings XI Punjab must be beat Delhi Daredevils at Bloemfontein

The 46th match is very important for the bollywood doll Preity Zinta owners Kings XI Punjab. Could KXI Punjab be qualified for the semifinal of the ongoing Indian Premier League second edition? Yes, it can bring the opportunity to reach at the top four. But they must have to win rest of the three matches. On May 15, 2009, it is going to take the Delhi Daredevils and rest three two matches will be played along with Deccan Chargers and Chennai Super Kings.


The match between Delhi Daredevils and Kings XI Punjab will be taken place at Kingsmead, Durban. In the fist leg match DC beat KXI Punjab for 10 wickets with D/L method. IPL Punjab has very good wining record in the ongoing season so they can beat any teams. Brett Lee has joined with the team after completing the tour of Dubai along with Pakistan in the neutral host. Kings XI Punjab has a back-to-back wining record that secured 4 wins in a row.


No doubt that IPL Delhi is performing very well and securing the top position of the points table. They already have perused 16 points that may be enough for to be capable for the semifinals. It just has played 10 matches out of 14. A single win must be thrown them to the semifinals.

IPL season 2 points table: Who will play IPL semifinals in 2009?

IPL points table is trembling with the competition of wins. Just a single win pulling any teams up and lose threw in bottom. Among the eight teams only Kolkata Knight Riders have to opportunity to be qualified in the semifinals of the IPL T20 second season. May be Kings XI Punjab is playing the same roles in the point tables, although it secured 5 wins out of 11. With the similar victories and a single point, Mumbai Indian is leading the 6th position one point ahead of KXI Punjab.


Rajasthan Royals was in 6th position but just one win pulled them up to the 3rd position. The champions have to secure more that one wins rest of the two matches to be qualified for the semifinals. Yes, they have opportunity to because the rest two matches they have to play alongside Kolkata Knight Riders and Delhi Daredevils the bottom and top scorers this year. In the first leg match, Rajasthan Royals won on alongside KKR in super-over but beat Delhi Daredevils five wickets and reached to the target 143 runs 5 balls remaining. 


It seems to me that Mumbai Indians, Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals should pay for the point divide matter. Every thing will be depend on time and the performances. Only Delhi Daredevils is out of competition but rest of six teams are waiting by sitting back to back.
