The 38th match of the Dream11 Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 will be played between Delhi Capitals (DC) and Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Dubai.
Kings XI Punjab fought hard against Mumbai Indians on Sunday, October 19 to earn two crucial points to stay in playoffs contention. KL Rahul led side will try to maintain that same momentum while playing against Delhi Capitals.
While Delhi Capitals is sitting on the top of the points table with 14 points, Kings XI Punjab is at sixth spot with three wins in nine games.
Delhi Capitals doesn’t need any further changes in the team as they are already looking strong and ready to take on any opposition. They defeated Chennai Super Kings in their previous match where Shikhar Dhawan smashed a century and Axar Patel batted brilliantly and smashed three sixes to direct his team towards another victory.
Talking about Kings XI Punjab, Chris Gayle’s presence in the Playing 11 truly strengthened the team. The only concern for KXIP is the poor form of Glenn Maxwell in the league. He is yet to perform the way he is known for.
