A resurgent Kings XI Punjab will take on the Delhi Capitals in Dubai in a bid to go further up the points table and boost their chances of making it to IPL 2020 playoffs. Kings XI Punjab gathered a new lease of life with back to back victories against Royal Challengers Bangalore and Mumbai Indians, two of the strongest sides this year. KL Rahul has led the way with the bat, earning man of the match award in the last two games.
From being down and out, Kings XI Punjab bounced back with two victories, surging them to three wins from nine games. The addition of Chris Gayle not only gives KL Rahul an extra bowling option but also a designated power hitter in the middle-order. The likes of Mohammed Shami and Chris Jordan have begun hitting their strides as death bowlers too, delivering in the heat of the competition against Mumbai Indians. Hence, they will take confidence from the two successive wins so far.
On the other hand, Delhi Capitals, who will start as overwhelming favourites, will not feel the need to change their line-up. Delhi Capitals have managed to win games even without Rishabh Pant and Shimron Hetmyer in their arsenal and sitting pretty at the top with 14 points. Shikhar Dhawan at his imperious best is one more significant boost apart from Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje going from strength to strength. They remain one of the prime contenders to win the IPL this year.
