After the Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings game in Abu Dhabi, the second game will move to Dubai as Delhi Capitals (DC) and Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) kick-start their Dream11 Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 campaigns, squaring off in the second game of the tournament on Sunday.
DC vs KXIP 2nd T20 Preview
As the both teams battle it out in the middle to begins tournament on winning note, Shreyas Iyer and KL Rahul, the two young leaders going up against each other. IPL 2019 was Iyer’s first full season as DC captain while IPL 2020 is the first season when Rahul will be leading the side. Although their batting will be closely watched and followed, the two will have their eyes on the bigger prize, to win IPL trophy for their teams, will they succeed ? Well the answer depend on how they begin the tournament and how far they go to qualify for semi-finals.
While both the sides have plenty of players who can change the course of the match, here are our top five picks who could make an impact at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium.
KL Rahul was absolutely breathtaking with the bat over the last two seasons for Kings XI Punjab, amassing over 1250 runs, with 12 fifties and a hundred. Hard hitter Chris Gayle can use brute force to set the ball rolling for his team. The Universe Boss holds the record for the most hundreds (6) in the IPL, in addition to 28 fifties, and has close to 4500 runs against his name. The young spinner from Afghanistan possesses more than a handful of variations in his bowling repertoire and hence, on the tracks across the United Arab Emirates (for this game, in Dubai), Mujeeb-ur-Rahman, who can bowl well in the powerplays, would be one to watch out for
Shreyas Iyer led Delhi Capitals to the final four last year and will be out to make a point to guide them a step further this season under guidance of their head coach Rickey Ponting. Rishabh Pant, the Delhi Capitals’ wicketkeeper, is one of the most entertaining batsmen going around. The left-hander, batting in the middle order, has all the traits to change the game on its head in a matter of few balls. An ability to deliver under pressure makes Kagiso Rabada a desirable prospect for any side. He was extremely impressive in the IPL 2019, scalping 25 wickets in 12 games, and DC will be more than happy if he starts firing with all cylinders from the first game of the IPL 2020 season.
