Delhi Capitals vs Kings XI Punjab IPL 2020

Delhi Capitals and Kings XI Punjab start their rescheduled 2020 Indian Premier League campaigns against each other in Dubai. With the tournament moved to the UAE, this is the first of the games scheduled at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium and the match, on September 20, gets underway at 19:30 local time.

Delhi Capitals finished third last season and go into this game with Kings XI Punjab’s former captain, Ravichandran Ashwin, among their big buys ahead of this tournament. They recruited well in the auction too, but if Marcus Stoinis and Alex Carey cannot play the season opener, having already lost Jason Roy and Chris Woakes, they may be a little light on star quality.

Kings XI Punjab have had less to worry about in terms of late squad changes, with KL Rahul having taken over the captaincy and some key players having been retained. Nicholas Pooran and Mujeeb Ur Rahman arrive on the back of some excellent form in the Caribbean Premier League, even if Glenn Maxwell’s arrival is delayed by the current guidelines.

Delhi Capitals Team News & Playing 11

Delhi Capitals Team News

Delhi Capitals signed up Jason Roy and Chris Woakes but will have neither available for IPL 2020. Woakes dropped out before the original tournament and Roy withdrew from this one due to injury. If Alex Carey and Marcus Stoinis’ late arrival means they are unavailable, Keemo Paul or Daniel Sams could start in one of the overseas spots.

Delhi Capitals Key Players

  • Shikhar Dhawan: Signed off in fine batting form in January with his performances against Australia and it is a bonus that he is fit for this tournament after some injury worries earlier in the year.
  • Sandeep Lamichhane: The Nepalese leg-spinner has become a fixture of the T20 circuit despite still being just 20. He has 117 T20 wickets in 88 matches.
  • Rishabh Pant: The wicket-keeper-batsman may have a bit of pressure on his place this season with Alex Carey recruited but his T20 strike rate speaks for itself.

Delhi Capitals Team Form

Delhi Capitals finished third in the table last season, winning nine of their 14 matches. They then beat Sunrisers Hyderabad in the eliminator, but defeat to Chennai Super Kings ended their hopes of a place in the final.

Delhi Capitals Predicted Playing 11

Shikhar Dhawan, Prithvi Shaw, Shreyas Iyer (c), Ajinkya Rahane, Shimron Hetmyer, Rishabh Pant (wk), Ravichandran Ashwin, Keemo Paul, Kagiso Rabada, Ishant Sharma, Sandeep Lamichhane

Kings XI Punjab Team News & Playing 11

Kings XI Punjab Team News

Glenn Maxwell might miss the first games of IPL 2020 due to his late arrival from Australia’s tour of England, but Kings XI Punjab have had less disruption than other teams. KL Rahul will step up and captain the team after Ravichandran Ashwin’s departure.

Kings XI Punjab Key Players

  • KL Rahul: Set to captain the team this season having been their outstanding batsman previously. He scored 593 runs last season, including six 50s and one unbeaten century.
  • Nicholas Pooran: Smashed his first T20 century during the Caribbean Premier League to issue a reminder of his big-hitting batting prowess in T20 cricket.
  • Mujeeb Ur Rahman: The spin bowler was another in fine form in the CPL, where he moved to 131 wickets in T20 cricket despite still being just 19 years of age.

Kings XI Punjab Team Form

Kings XI Punjab started the last tournament well, winning four of their first six matches, but just two further wins – one of which was in the final game, after a four-game losing streak – meant they missed out on a play-off spot on net run rate. They finished with six wins and eight defeats.

Kings XI Punjab Bet365 Odds

Karun Nair is more of an outsider at 8.00, though Mandeep Singh can be backed at 6.50.
  • Kings XI Punjab top team bowler: Whichever way Kings XI Punjab select their overseas players, you can back at least one of them at 4.00 with Bet365 to be their top team bowler as Sheldon Cottrell, Chris Jordan and in-form Mujeeb Ur Rahman are all available at that price. Mohammed Shami is 4.50, which seems a generous price given his reputation.

The overseas trio, who could be competing for two places between the three of them, are priced as follows: Sheldon Cottrell is 3.60 with Betway, Mujeeb Ur Rahman is 3.75 and Chris Jordan can be backed at 4.00.

Final Verdict

Back Delhi Capitals to beat Kings XI Punjab at 1.72 with Bet365 and also1.72 with Betway.

DC vs KXIP Dream11 Prediction

  • Wicket-keeper(s

    Lokesh Rahul is the stand-out choice form a strong selection of wicket-keeper batsmen. He is the most expensive but he is a must-pick. The question is then whether to also pick Rishabh Pant, Nicholas Pooran or Alex Carey too.

  • Batsmen

    Shikhar Dhawan is ten credits but is another key batsman and a must-pick, though the same cannot be said of Chris Gayle despite his reputation. He is too inconsistent at the end of his career and Shimron Hetmyer may be a more economical pick, alongside Shreyas Iyer - who has a good record in this tournament.

  • All-rounder(s)

    Glenn Maxwell's availability is a huge boost and he arrives fresh from his fine form for Australia against England. Marcus Stoinis will also be available and proved in the Big Bash just how good he is in T20 cricket. 

  • Bowlers

    That leaves a lot of bowling spaces, but there are a lot of quality bowlers to choose from, including Kagiso Rabada, Ravichandran Ashwin and Mujeeb Ur Rahman. For less credits, you can get Mohammed Shami and Sandeep Lamichhane too.

  • Captain/vice-captain

    The two Australian all-rounders were key together in the Big Bash League and now in opposition they could be top players too. Maxwell's form for Australia makes him the top choice, with Stoinis as vice-captain for now.

DC vs KXIP Dream11 Team Prediction

  • Batsmen:Shikhar Dhawan, Shimron Hetmyer, Shreyas Iyer

  • All Rounder:Glenn Maxwell (c), Marcus Stoinis (vc)

  • Wicket Keeper:Lokesh Rahu

  • Bowler:Kagiso Rabada, Ravichandran Ashwin, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Sandeep Lamichhane, Mohammed Shami
