Delhi Capitals will take on Kings XI Punjab in the 2nd Match of Dream11 IPL 2020 at Dubai International Stadium, Dubai. We will provide DC vs KXIP Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing XI, and Fantasy Cricket Tips.

Delhi Capitals:

The Delhi Capitals always had a good squad, but they haven’t been able to win the trophy for some reason.

In the least season, they performed well and finished at the 3rd position on the points table. They have a perfect mixture of young Indian talent alongside some senior Indian and foreign players this year. Match winners like Shikhar Dhawan, Rishab Pant, Shreyas Iyer in the batting, and Ravichandran Ashwin, Kagiso Rabada, will be key players bowling department.

  • Shikhar Dhawan and Prithvi Shaw will most probably open the innings for DC.
  • Skipper Shreyas will bat at NO.3, followed by Shimron Hetmyer and Rishabh Pant.
  • All-rounders Marcus Stoinis/Keemo Paul, and Axar Patel will be crucial in the lower middle order.
  • Ravichandran Ashwin, along with Sandeep Lamichhane/Amit Mishra will form the spin attack of the team.
  • The core pace attack of the team will consist of Kagiso Rabada and Avesh Khan/T Deshpande/Daniel Sams.

Kings XI Punjab:

Kings XI also had a lot of ups and downs in the past 13 seasons. They had some great seasons and some terrible seasons. In one of the seasons, they almost went on to win the trophy, but they had to face disappointment. Even in the last season, they started well but couldn’t continue the momentum and ended their season at the 6th position on the points table.

But this year, with the addition of new players in the squad, it appears to be one of the strongest teams and would be hoping to turn their fortunes.

  • Skipper KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal will probably open the inning for KXIP.
  • Nicholas Pooran probably bat at the 1st down.
  • The middle-order will comprise, Sarfaraz Khan/Karun Nair, and Glenn Maxwell.
