IPL 2020: The 13th edition of IPL is all over the news with back to back matches. In today’s match, a cricket match will witness Chennai Super Kings against Delhi Capitals at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium in UAE.
Speaking of Delhi capitals, it has a poor record against Chennai Super Kings as it has managed to win only six matches out of 21 games and lost four matches out of the last five.
However, Delhi Capital will focus on being more confident as Chennai Super Kings lost the last match with Rajasthan Royals. MS Dhoni’s team was blown away by Sanju Samson, Steve Smith and Jofra Archer. During the match, Faf du Plessis was the only player to hit a fifty but Dhoni raised questions.
The weather in Dubai will be sunny with a maximum temperature of 39 degrees and a minimum of 27 degrees. There is a zero percent chance of rain. With 39 temperatures there will be humidity and fewer chances of dew during the match.
The pitch will be good
for batting not for the spin bowlers. However, it will be good for pace bowlers who bowl plenty of cutters. In three games played so far in Dubai, the scores have ranged from 155 and above to a 200+ score by Kings XI Punjab. A total in the range of 170-180 is a par score.
It should be noted that Kings XI Punjab registered the highest score in Dubai in IPL 2020 by smashing 206/4 against Royal Challengers Bangalore. With the pitches getting easier, players can score more.
