Kings XI Punjab v Delhi Capitals – Match Preview

There is nothing between these two sides as far as the head-to-head record goes. KXIP have won five and DC six on account of their super over win the last time they met.

Delhi are leading the way this tournament and are now within touching distance of the knock-out stages. However, Punjab are gaining momentum as they plot a late rally towards the top four.

Another close contest could be on the cards.

Where: Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Dubai.

When: Tuesday, 20 October 2020

Start time: 14:00 GMT (19:30 IST)

Pitch conditions: There is no doubt that the pitches are starting to slow down more and more due to the amount of action they have seen. It has certainly become easier to read in Dubai for the batsmen but also easier to defend smaller totals.

Weather conditions: There is more hot weather with clear skies and no chance of rain in Dubai. The temperature will sit around the 35 degree mark for most of the day.

Kings XI Punjab v Delhi Capitals – Latest Odds

Delhi Capitals are made the favourites to continue their fine form in IPL 2020. They are priced at 1.74 with Sportsbet.

KXIP can be backed at 2.10 with the same firm to secure another big scalp as they look to gatecrash the play-off picture.

Kings XI v Delhi Capitals – Team News

The return of Chris Gayle has been an obvious boost to Kings XI and having him in support of in-form duo Mayank Agarwal and KL Rahul has been key for them.

The form of Glenn Maxwell and a shaky middle-order remains a concern but Nicholas Pooran and Deepak Hooda have been able to take some pressure off recently.

They are unlikely to make too many changes even though they do have the spin options of Mujeeb ur Rahman or Sandeep Lamichhane to turn to if required.

For Delhi, they will want more runs from Prithvi Shaw but will have been buoyed by the brilliant knock of Shikhar Dhawan in the previous match against CSK.

Ajinkya Rahane needs to make an impact before the return from injury of Rishabh Pant. DC are already managing without Amit Mishra and Ishant Sharma.

Kings XI Punjab v Delhi Capitals – Betting Tips and Prediction

Despite the difference in the way these teams started the IPL, this clash could again prove to be a close contest.

The first fixture between these two of this year’s tournament needed a super over and much could come down to how well the KXIP top order does once more.

That said, Delhi have a fine balance about their team and they are worthy favourites to take the win.

As ever, there are hundreds of other markets to consider beyond the outright winner prices.

Back KXIP for Highest Opening Partnership

Kings XI’s opening pair of Mayank Agarwal and KL Rahul have been a treat to watch so far this IPL, despite their team’s early struggles.

The pair sit in the top two in the run-scorer charts and have given their side excellent starts is the majority of their fixtures.

While Dhawan hit a brilliant ton for Delhi in their last fixture, Shubman Gill has been struggling for form recently.

Backing KXIP to have the highest opening partnership looks a good bet at 1.86 with 10CRIC.

Nortje the Value in Top Bowler Market

Anrich Nortje has been in eye-catching form for the Capitals in their last few outings.

He took two wickets against Rajasthan at this venue and backed it up with two more against CSK last time.

Fellow South African Rabada sits favourite to be top wicket-taker for DC in this one at 2.6. However, it means Nortje offers value given his recent form.

He can be backed at 4.0 with 22Bet to be his team’s top bowler.

Iyer to Shine with the Bat Again

Shreyas Iyer is another who has been in the runs this IPL. Backing him to continue that looks a solid selection in the Delhi top batsman market.

Dhawan will be favourite to take this again but with opener Shaw struggling for form and Rahane not firing at three, Iyer could get a chance to take the fight to KXIP early in the innings.

His price of 4.33 with bet365 to be DC’s top batsman looks too big.
