The IPL 2020 season, the 13th edition of the cash-rich cricket league has its 38th match on 20th October when Kings XI Punjab will take on Delhi Capital at the Dubai International Stadium.
Kings XI Punjab
After consecutive defeats, Kings XI Punjab have been redeeming themselves with back to back victories against RCB and MI. They had a remarkable double Super Over win against Mumbai last Sunday, which saw another stupendous knock from the skipper KL Rahul (51-ball-77) and some fireworks from Nichola Pooran (24-off-12). Mohammed Shami was vital for their bowling, who picked two scalps in the game and a brilliant spell in the 1st Super Over.
Full squad: KL Rahul (c & wk), Mohammed Shami, Karun Nair, Chris Gayle, Mayank Agarwal, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Mandeep Singh, Sarfaraz Khan, Nicholas Pooran (wk), Deepak Hooda, Glenn Maxwell, Chris Jordan, James Neesham, Tajinder Singh, Prabhsimran Singh (wk), Murugan Ashwin, Harpreet Brar, Krishnappa Gowtham, Jagadeesha Suchith, Ravi Bishnoi, Hardus Viljoen, Darshan Nalkande, Arshdeep Singh, Sheldon Cottrell, Ishan Porel.
Leading the table with 14 points, Delhi Capitals are performing amazingly in IPL 2020. They snatched a superb 5 wicket chase win against CSK last Saturday, orchestrated by opener Shikhar Dhawan’s maiden IPL century (58-ball-101*) and a swashbuckling 21-off-5 from Axar Patel to seal the deal, the latter who also impressed in bowling. However, the rest of the bowlers were costly.
Full Squad: Shreyas Iyer (c), Ravichandran Ashwin, Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Ajinkya Rahane, Rishabh Pant (wk), Shimron Hetmyer, Marcus Stoinis, Daniel Sams, Lalit Yadav, Keemo Paul, Alex Carey (wk), Amit Mishra, Sandeep Lamichhane, Axar Patel, Kagiso Rabada, Avesh Khan, Harshal Patel, Ishant Sharma, Mohit Sharma, Tushar Deshpande, Anrich Nortje.
Waging odds: Kings XI Punjab (2.00) vs Delhi Capitals (1.72)
Kings XI Punjab are the underdogs and are priced at 2.00 meaning if you bet ₹100 on them and if they win the match, you’ll be making ₹200.
Delhi Capitals are the waging favourites and are priced at 1.72, meaning if you bet ₹100 on them and if they win the match, you’ll be making ₹172.
In their previous faceoff in the current IPL season, DC edged off with a Super Over win. They continue to have a superb campaign, although, the bowling squad needs more economic figures overall. On the other hand, KXIP will go into the clash with a confidence boost as they eye their third straight win to rise on the points table.
It will be a victory for Kings XI Punjab.
