DC and KXIP are all set to play in UAE in the second game of IPL this season.
With two of the biggest cricket names as their head coaches, namely Ricky Pointing and Anil Kumble, the match is bound to display some amazing cricket.
Arguably, DC does look better in the spin department, with the trio of R Ashwin, Amit Mishra and Axar Patel.
Also, the match, at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium, will see two of India’s future captain candidates battling it out as skippers.
KL Rahul and Shreyas Iyer are pumped up to guide their side to their first victory of this IPL season.
When it comes to the batting, the Capitals have some of the best players of India internationals, such as Prithvi Shaw, Iyer, Rishabh Pant, Shikhar Dhawan, and also West Indian Shimron Hetmyer.
It is likely that Ajinkya Rahane (with a strike-rate below 120), will be left out of the game.
The KXIP also has some fine clean hitters in their squad like Chris Gayle, Glenn Maxwell and KL Rahul.
Delhi Capitals Are Set To Use Their Frontline Spinners Against KXIP
Delhi Capitals will be on the lookout to repeat their fantastic performance of 2019.
If the pitch becomes slow, Delhi will have the advantage in the spin department given their experience.
Among the new recruits in the squad is Ravichandran Ashwin. They also have Amit Mishra, the second-highest wicket-taker in the IPL.
Also, Sandeep Lamichhane is a good legspinner while for a left-arm spin option they do have Axar Patel.
Moreover, Jason Roy has replaced Australian fast bowler Daniel Sams.
With the pitch getting slow by the hour, Delhi Capitals are likely to play three of their spinners.
KL Rahul Believes “IPL 2020 can be KingsXI Punjab’s season”
KL Rahul is optimistic and believes that his team does have what it takes to win the tournament.
He says “The team has been fantastic, we’ve been getting along great and are looking forward to playing a good brand of cricket and making this season a memorable one”.
KXIP also has some great players like Rahul, Mayank Agarwal, Mohammad Shami and international recruits Chris Gayle, Glenn Maxwell, Sheldon Cottrell, Jimmy Neesham, the in-form Nicholas Pooran and Mujeeb Zadran.
