KXIP vs DC Dream11 Match Prediction FREE TEAMS Today IPL Match 20 October

KXIP vs DC Dream11 Prediction: Fresh from their super over heroics from the weekend, Kings XI Punjab will look to continue their momentum against the toppers Delhi Capitals today. KXIP are catching up with rest of the pack after a poor first half while DC will look to continue their march towards a top 2 finish. The match will be played at Dubai and another entertainer at ‘Ring of Fire’ is on the cards. We will preview KXIP vs DC Dream11 contest.

Kings XI Punjab were part of one of the greatest IPL matches and coming out on winning side would have been even sweeter for them. Bowling first, KXIP were in the game early as their bowlers ran through MI top order. After taking 3 wickets early, they gave MI a chance to rebuild with the innings with partnership between Krunal Pandya and Quinton de Kock. Both set a platform for the likes of Hardik Pandya and Kieron Pollard to launch. Mumbai posted 176 runs on the board thanks to late hitting by Kieron Pollard and Nathan Coulter-Nile. Mohammed Shami and Arshdeep Singh took a couple each for KXIP.

Which is the ideal batting position for Chris Gayle?

In reply, KL Rahul guided the chase for KXIP with valuable supports from Chris Gayle, Nicholas Pooran and Deepak Hooda. In the end, the match ended in a tie as Chris Jordan got run-out searching for the winning run. In the first super over, Mohammed Shami did an unthinkable as he defended 5 runs to force the match into another super over. KXIP were the better side in the second one as Chris Jordan, Chris Gayle and Mayank Agarwal secured two points for them.

Delhi Capitals are also coming from a close finish against Chennai Super Kings in their last match. Bowling first, DC bowlers did a reasonable job on a Sharjah pitch. Fast bowlers were particularly impressive as Anrich Nortje picked up two scalps while Kagiso Rabada and Tushar Deshpande hunted one each. CSK set a target of 180 against DC batsmen. Shikhar Dhawan anchored the chase with an unbeaten hundred as Shreyas Iyer and Marcus Stoinis chipped in during the middle overs. But crucial blows came from Axar Patel as he took Ravindra Jadeja on to hit 21 runs from just 5 deliveries and secured another win for the Capitals.

In head-to-head comparisons, the north Indian derby has been dominated by the men from Punjab historically. KXIP have won 14 matches while DC were victorious on 11 occasions. KXIP are leading by 3-2 against DC in their last 5 matches. In the first match this year, Delhi Capitals beat Kings XI Punjab in the super over after regular match ended in a tie.

Pitch and Conditions
Dubai is known to have a true surface during this year’s IPL and things haven’t changed significantly in the favor of bowlers even on used pitches. Scores are still hovering around 170 but bowlers will still have something to bowl on this pitch. Even with slight dew in later stages of the second innings, captains would want to bat first here.

Kings XI Punjab Team News

  • KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal have been the best opening pair of the season by some distance and they will continue to do their thing today. Chris Gayle is also settling into his role at number 3 nicely.
  • Nicholas Pooran is hitting them beautifully but it will be interesting to see what they do with Glenn Maxwell today. Deepak Hooda and Chris Jordan also made useful contributions down the order in the last match.
  • Fast bowlers Mohammed Shami and Arshdeep Singh are bowling well while Murugan Ashwin and young Ravi Bishnoi will take care of spin-bowling in our KXIP vs MI Dream11 prediction.

Delhi Capitals Team News

  • Delhi Capitals are also not likely to make any changes to his XI as Rishabh Pant is still not fit.
  • Shikhar Dhawan is looking back to his best but Prithvi Shaw will be searching for a score after two ducks in a row. Ajinkya Rahane hasn’t done anything in the opportunities he got so far.
  • Shreyas Iyer is another crucial cog in their batting lineup while Marcus Stoinis has gone from strength to strength this season with bat in hand. Alex Carey and Axar Patel will be their lower order enforcers.
  • South African pair of Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje have transformed DC into a world-class outfit while Tushar Deshpande has also done his job perfectly in last couple of outings. Ravichandran Ashwin will lead their spin-bowling department.

Captain Picks

For Small Leagues

  • KL Rahul is an obvious captaincy choice from Kings XI Punjab. He is league’s leading run-scorer by some margin. He has 525 runs at an average of 75 from 9 innings so far. Six half-centuries that also include one hundred depict how good he has been this year.
  • Shikhar Dhawan is having a very similar game-plan to KL Rahul so far. He doesn’t take any risks up front and looks to consolidate before upping the ante in second half of his innings. His last 3 scores are: 101*, 57, 69*.
  • Marcus Stoinis would be having good memories of playing against Kings XI Punjab as he registered a match-winning performance at the same venue. After slamming 53 with the bat, he also went on to grab a couple of wickets in the last over. With the value he offers in both the departments, he is a handy pick for the captaincy today.

For Grand Leagues

  • Nicholas Pooran has a clear role in the middle overs: To take spinners on and give impetus heading into the death overs. He has done his job perfectly so far but will be hoping for a significant score soon. His match-up against Axar Patel is in his favor and should look to attack him in his favourite cow corner region.
  • Mohammed Shami is another good one for the grand leagues. He took 3 scalps when KXIP played DC in the first round. With Prithvi Shaw struggling for runs, Mohammed Shami should fancy him with the new ball. He is a better option than Chris Gayle today considering the fact that DC have two express pace bowlers in their ranks.
  • Kagiso Rabada can be a differential today against KXIP batting lineup. He is a dangerous proposition for KXIP middle order with his ability to hurry up batsmen. Chris Gayle, Nicholas Pooran, Glenn Maxwell and Deepak Hooda are all susceptible to proper pace bowling.

Who will win KXIP vs DC Today Match Prediction?

As per our KXIP vs DC Today Match Prediction, Delhi Capitals are primed to win this encounter against Kings XI Punjab. Even without Rishabh Pant, DC are turning out to be very hard to beat.
