The match 37 of Indian Premier League (IPL) 2019 will be going to take place between Delhi Capitals (DC) and Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) at the Feroz Shah Kotla, Delhi on Saturday, April 20.
With the likes of Mujeeb ur Rahman and Murugan Ashwin in the side to back skipper Ashwin, KXIP will be relishing the opportunity of playing on a low and slow Kotla wicket. Not to forget the experience of Mohammed Shami in the pace bowling department and the exuberance of Arshdeep Singh.
For Delhi, it will be about replicating their away form on home conditions as the free flowing stroke-makers in Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, skipper Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant have found it very difficult to adapt to the slow nature of the Kotla wicket.

Pitch and Weather Condition/Report:
No rain is in the forecast in India’s capital city and the temperature will most probably hover in the late 20s. The dew will definitely play its part in the game.
It was a rank turner at the Kotla in the game between DC and MI. It might continue to turn but the surface is unlikely to be so sluggish as it was in the previous game. The score around 150-155 should be winning total.
