    Delhi Capitals:

    • DC has a strong batting line-up. Top-4 packed by top Indian batsmen along with Stoinis and Carrey makes them a strong force.
    • The Proteas duo of Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje has been impressive in this tournament so far.
    • The current batting form of their captain Shreyas Iyer is a huge boost to this Delhi side.
    • A well balanced and settled batting eleven.

    Kings XI Punjab:

    • In form top order. Both KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal are in splendid form.
    • In-form bowling unit. Mohammad Shami and young Bishnoi are almost unplayable in this tournament so far. Murugan Ashwin has been pretty impressive as well.
    • With Gayle back in the lineup, their batting is strengthened a bit.


    Delhi Capitals:

    • Rishab Pant is injured, which has weakened their finishing a bit.
    • There are injury concerns regarding Shreyas Iyer.

    Kings XI Punjab:

    • Weak middle order. If either of Mayank or Rahul don’t fire, they are in very serious trouble. They would need timely support from Maxwell and Mandeep.
    • KXIP’s death bowling is also pretty ordinary.
    • Form of Maxwell and other domestic middle-order batsmen is a concern.

    It’s a do or die situation for KXIP. They need to win all their matches to keep themselves alive in the competition. With the team getting two points in the last match, they are not expected to make many changes to the lineup. Maybe an out of form Glenn Maxwell may make way for Jimmy Neesham.

    As for DC, there are some concerns regarding their captain Shreyas Iyer. He was not 100% fit in the last two matches. Rishab Pant who was out injured is expected to make his return. In that case, he will replace Ajinkya Rahane. Shimron Hetmyer is also expected to replace Alex Carey.

    DC Playing 11: Shikhar Dhawan, Prithvi Shaw, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant, Shimron Hetmyer, Marcus Stoinis, Axar Patel, Ravichandran Ashwin, Anrich Nortje, Tushar Deshpande, Kagiso Rabada

    KXIP Playing 11: KL Rahul, Mayank Agarwal, Chris Gayle, Sarfraz Khan, Mandeep Singh, James Neesham, Murugan Ashwin, Chris Jordan, Mohammed Shami, Akshdeep Singh, Ravi Bishnoi

    Dubai has seen close games as well as one-sided games. But largely it has suited the team batting first. It has also become more spin-friendly in the last few matches. So batting first seems to be the ideal choice. Teams batting first should look to score above 170 as anything below that should be easy to chase down.
