Match 38 – KXIP vs. DC – Tue, 20th October
IPL Match Prediction
As the points table leader Delhi Capitals take on the late bloomers Kings XI Punjab, IPL Match Prediction 2020 predicts we are bound to witness a truly ravishing game of Dream11 IPL. Their previous encounter led to this league’s first tied game, followed by an enthralling Super Over game won by Delhi Capitals, where Marcus Stoinis was the star player for DC.
Since having run into each other in the very second match of this tournament, both Delhi Capitals and Kings Xi Punjab’s paths have been contrasting. Primarily dominating the points table, Delhi is eyeing a spot in the pay-offs, which Kings XI Punjab is in danger of missing out if they possibly lose any match from now onwards.
Our IPL Match Prediction 2020 predicts KXIP will win this clash on the 20th of October after having gained enough confidence from the previous two consecutive wins.
With injuries prevailing in Delhi’s camp, credits to Delhi that they have managed to get past these setbacks and have not let that hamper their performance in this league so far. Barring the injury concerns, Delhi has managed to find a delightful rhythm with their exceptional bowling attack and senior player Shikhar Dhawan getting back in his form.
Kings XI Punjab, on the other hand, has come closer to correcting their combinations and approach this season. A curious case that both the openers are at the top in the race for orange cap, yet the team hasn’t been at best on the points table. They could not close out games, although their last two outings should be helping them regain confidence and put them in a better position in the tournament.
Our Dream11 Team Prediction says players like KL Rahul, Mayank Agarwal, and Nicholas Pooran from the Kings XI Punjab, and Shikhar Dhawan, Captain Shreyas Iyer, and Kagiso Rabada from the Delhi Capitals will be the Key Players to watch out for in this IPL season.
With two left-hand batsmen, Chris Gayle and Nicholas Pooran, at the top of the batting order for Punjab, off Spinner Ravichandran Aswin will be banked on by the Delhi Capitals. Likewise, the young leg spinners of Kings XI Punjab, Ravi Bishnoi and Murugan Ashwin, will be given the responsibilities to take on the top order batsmen of Delhi Capitals. As per Dream11 Team Prediction each of the senior members of the respective team will be expected to put on their best show and meet their expectations for their teams to cross the line.
Venue: Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Dubai.
The pitch here has not been the same as it was earlier in this tournament, covered in grass aiding the seam bowlers. The pitch has now slowed down, and with drier conditions, the spinners will have a vital role as seen in the last few matches played here. IPL Match Prediction says players will be wary of spinners, as the bowl has started turning on this pitch, and will also be wary of the shorter boundary on one side behind the square of the right-hand batsman.
Toss will be critical of both the captains. It will heavily depend on the matchday pitch report and weather forecast for the day. Although, as per our IPL Match prediction and previous statistic, they should be looking to bat and put some runs on the board first and defend it later if they win the toss.
Our Favorite Bets:
- KXIP will win:
As per our Dream11 Team Prediction, Kings XI Punjab is going to win this is battle, take their piece of revenge, and create better possibilities for them to reach the play-offs.
- KL Rahul will be Top Performer for KXIP:
The captain has indeed been raw in his captaincy skills, but his bating performance has stolen hearts of many, securing an orange cap to his name, he should be the top performer for KXIP leading from the front.
- Shikhar Dhawan will be Top Performer for DC:
Having hit his maiden IPL century in the last match, this senior player will be high in confidence. We believe his experience will pay off for him to be the top performer for DC in the upcoming clash against KXIP.
