DC vs KXIP Today IPL Match Prediction : Delhi Capitals will face off Kings XI Punjab in the second match of Indian Premier League 2020 in Dubai today. Shreyas Iyer’s Delhi side will look for a winning start. Last year they finished at third position and this year they will be eyeing the final and for that they have to gain the winning momentum from the start.
On the other hand, Kings XI Punjab who is going to start a new ear in the leadership of KL Rahul too will be eyeing a winning start of their campaign.
Delhi Capitals have slowly built a team around Indian youngsters for a couple years now. And who were the youngsters a few years ago, have now gone on to become solid international players for India. Only issue that may haunt them this year is the number of choices for top order positions. Almost all their batsmen play their best cricket at the top but someone has to do a job at the back end if they are to put on consistent performances. In this extended puzzle, the role of Shimron Hetmyer will be interesting one for sure. Primarily batting in top 3 in the Caribbean, Ricky Ponting has hinted about using him in the finisher’s role.
Pitch and Conditions
The weather in this part of the world around September will remain clear with pleasant temperatures in the evening. The pitches at Dubai have assisted the stroke-play over the years and that should make the batsmen happy from both sides. Fast bowlers will also get some bounce to play with if they bend their backs. As we saw in Abu Dhabi last night, they may leave some grass on the pitch in early part of the season to hold them together for the plenty of upcoming cricket on the same playing surface.
