Indian Premier League is going to begin on 19th September 2020. The IPL 2020 match 2 is going to be played between Delhi Capitals and Kings XI Punjab. The match which will be played in the Dubai International Stadium, on Sunday afternoon, will be gaining a lot of viewers across the world of cricket. In IPL 2020 today’s prediction, we take a look at both the teams’ stats, key players, and match predictions:
- Delhi Capital Team Analysis- The Delhi Capitals team has a good mix of experienced and young players in their team. The team under the captaincy of a young player Shreyas Iyer has many key players and the team actually has the capacity to at least reach the qualifiers as of now. This team is quite underestimated even though they were on the same level of points as MI and CSK in last year’s IPL.
Some key players of the Capitals include Indian star players Shikhar Dhawan, R Ashwin, and Ishant Sharma, international stars Jason Roy, Marcus Stoinis, Chris Woakes, Kagiso Rabada, and Shmiron Hetmyer. These are just a few as the team is loaded with some of the brilliant players who can together win the IPL 2020 Cup. West Indies’ pacer Keemo Paul and South Africa’s Kagiso Rabada, the young bowling duo have proved to be the team’s key players in the last IPL, leading the team to the play offs. Alongside experienced and talented spinner, R Ashwin, and pacer Ishant Sharma, this bowling unit can turn into the opposition’s nightmare.
With batsmen like Dhawan, Prithvi Shaw, Chris Woakes, Jason Roy, and Captain Shreyas Iyer, from top to middle order, every batsman is a key player for this team. Bought for 4.8 crores, Australia’s all-rounder Marcus Stoinis is all set for his IPL debut with Delhi Capitals and will definitely try to prove his worth in the game.
- Kings XI Punjab Team Analysis- The Kings XI Punjab team has always looked very promising but when it comes to execution, the team’s performance is not quite as per our expectations. The team always looks confident and strong at the beginning of every season but lack consistency when moving forward towards the group stages. After making some changes in this year’s IPL auctions and under the coaching of former Indian team captain Anil Kumble, the team looks powerful and has more depth to its squad than the last year.
Alongside Captain KL Rahul, West Indies beast Chris Gayle will be opening for the Kings XI team. This opening duo gave their best and scored lots of runs for their team in last year’s IPL edition. With the presence of Aussie big hitter Glenn Maxwell, and young players Nicholas Pooran and Mayank Agarwal, the middle order is pretty decent too.
All-rounders Chris Jordan and James Neesham mean the team also has a good batting side. However, the bowling unit is the main concern as their only key bowler is Mohammad Shammi and debutant Sheldon Cottrell.
Looking at both the teams’ squad, key players, and based on last year’s performances, both the teams look quite strong and powerful. When you compare the two, Delhi Capitals definitely has an upper hand in this game with almost all playing XI being their key players. Again, Kings XI lacks a good bowling unit which is a great advantage for the Capitals. Even though Kings XI has key batsmen, they might fail to perform well against the Capitals’ powerful bowling unit. Looking at all the analytics, the Delhi Capitals team can win this game against Kings XI in their first match of IPL 2020.
