Kings XI Punjab has made it a habit of taking things to the very last ball in IPL 2020. We don’t think any other side would have been involved in as many thrilling encounters as it has. KXIP managed to win against the Mumbai Indians in its last match after two Super Overs! A short turnaround means that the team will need to get back to its best quickly as it takes on the Delhi Capitals.
The Delhi Capitals have won seven out of their nine matches so far and now sit clear at the top of the table. Another win should be enough to ensure it qualifies for the playoffs and it can then concentrate on locking up a top-2 place.
It was KXIP vs DC that ended in a dramatic tie right at the start of IPL 2020. That was a match that KXIP believed it should have won. This could be an emotional encounter between two teams that are in good form right now.
KXIP vs DC IPL 2020 is going to be played at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Dubai on the 20th of October 2020.
The IPL 2020 points table is extremely close right now. The bottom four teams all have six points and are separated from KKR by just four points. With five matches to go for every team, every single team has a chance of making the IPL playoffs.
KXIP has won its previous two matches and seems to have found a nice balance to its side. The addition of Chris Gayle in the middle gives it tremendous six-hitting power. The Universe Boss has already made a major contribution in the two matches he has played.
His presence has allowed Lokesh Rahul, Mayank Aggarwal, Nicholas Pooran, and Glenn Maxwell to play very freely as well. Maxwell is going through a terrible run right now but he could come back to form at any time and give this powerful batting lineup even more depth.
Sheer power and six-hitting wise, KXIP has the upper hand over DC.
The bowling is where things start getting a bit tricky for KXIP. Chris Jordan, for all his international success, continues to struggle in the IPL. Mohammad Shami is going to be full of confidence after his Super Over heroics but he can be expensive in the death overs too.
Arshdeep Singh, Glenn Maxwell, Deepak Hooda, M Ashwin, and Ravi Bishnoi form the rest of the attack. Not too bad but it looks as if KL Rahul is always going to be trying to buy that extra over from one of his part-timers.
DC has the batting to take advantage of any lapses from the bowling attack and that is where KXIP has to be careful.
Lokesh Rahul, Mayank Agarwal, Chris Gayle, Nicholas Pooran, Glenn Maxwell, James Neesham, Deepak Hooda, Murugan Ashwin, Ravi Bishnoi, Mohammed Shami, Arshdeep Singh.
DC is on the verge of qualifying for the IPL playoffs with five matches still to play. That is an exceptional run of form and shows the kind of depth that the team has. Injuries, missing players, and forced changes have not thrown DC off their stride.
It will be interesting to see if they try load management to ensure their players remain fit for the playoffs. In our opinion, Ricky Ponting is going to continue to play his best team and to win every single match because that is how he did things for Australia.
Rishabh Pant is expected to come back into the team which probably also means a return for Shimron Hetmyer. DC should be back to full strength in terms of their batting. Shikhar Dhawan has been playing some exceptional cricket and is coming into this match after a century against CSK.
Prithvi Shaw, however, has two ducks in a row and is going to a bit under pressure. We think DC will continue to give him some leeway for the time being and play him. Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant, Marcus Stoinis, Shimron Hetmyer, and Axar Patel are the other batsmen in the lineup.
This is a good batting lineup without being overly explosive. A good bowling lineup could expose some flaws in this DC batting.
The bowling is perhaps where DC is better than any other side in IPL 2020. Rabada is the leading wicket-taker of the entire tournament, Anrich Nortje is the fastest bowler in IPL history, and Axar Patel is the second most economical bowler this season. With Ravi Ashwin in there as well, the bowling attack does not have too many weak links.
The fifth bowler could be a target for some of the other teams, though. Stoinis chips in from time to time but we think DC may go back to Harshal Patel for this match.
The bowling attack for DC makes it very difficult to beat and also means that it is always going to be in the game, no matter what.
Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer, RR Pant, Shimron Hetmyer, Marcus Stoinis, Axar Patel, Ravichandran Ashwin, Kagiso Rabada, Daniel Sams, Tushar Deshpande.
The team that wins the toss is going to want to bat first. 12 out of the 16 matches played here have been won by the team batting first and so the team that bats first should be seen as having a big advantage.

Dubai has been an excellent venue for some exciting results so far. KXIP has played five matches and won two out of them in Dubai so far. DC, on the other hand, has played four and won four at the venue.
The pitch in Dubai is a bit slow and a score of about 165 seems to be par. Chasing down 175-180 is going to be quite tough for any team at this venue.
Spinner from both sides is going to play a big role, especially as the dew seems to have disappeared now.

DC is the bookmakers favorite and perhaps the safe choice. However, we have a different recommendation for this match. KXIP has a stronger batting lineup, seems to have found a decent bowling combination, and played its most recent match in Dubai.
DC, on the other hand, may need to make some changes to its team to accommodate Pant and Hetmyer. We may also see a change in the bowling attack. That makes it more vulnerable than it has been in recent matches.
This could be the time to bet on the upset and get on the KXIP train.
Bet on KXIP to win.
Betway is one of the very few bookmakers that even offer this market and we absolutely love it. This is the market in which we have made the most money in IPL 2020 and it is our favorite bet for the match once again. Chris Gayle needs to hit just one six for you to win this bet. He has hot seven in the two matches he has played so far and is in terrific form. Take the money.
Mayank Aggarwal and Lokesh Rahul have been prolific and very profitable for us. They are the most consistent partnership in IPL 2020 this year while DC has the maverick Prithvi Shaw opening for them. We think this is worth a punt for sure.
We think the pitch is going to be slower than what we have seen in Dubai so far. That generally equates to lesser sixes being hit. DC is not the most powerful of sides when it comes to six-hitting and we think the match total is unlikely to go over 12 unless Gayle goes nuts.
We love 1xBet for its fantastic accumulator options that allow you to bet a small amount for a massive return. If Iyer and Gayle have a good day, you will get a 17x return for your bet. Is it high-risk and low probability? Of course! It is also a fantastic return, though. A small bet if you are willing to take the risk is worth it.
