The IPL tournament which can also be called a Vacation plan for everyone will see the Delhi Capitals playing the Kings XI Punjab at Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium in the capital city of India.
Today’s match prediction is as followed:-
The Pitch report for Feroz Shah Kotla was batting friendly but nowadays it has been beneficial for the new ball, the average T20 score is between 160-180 in the 1st innings. So the team winning toss can do anything depending on their squad.
If DC bats first (predicted score 140-170)
The capitals are filled with young and emerging bat holders who are fearless in terms of striking the ball away from the ground. The top 4 batsmen of Dc consisting Dhawan, Iyer, Shaw, and Rishabh Pant are the core of the team’s run-getters. Rishabh Pant will be the X-factor in the team as he can go against any team’s strike bowler.
If Kxip bats first (predicted score 130-160)
Punjab has a topsy turvy batting face where if the openers depart early, the team goes through many hurdles later, Karun Nair is expected to show his presence by boosting teams confidence in the middle order. Pooran would be the key in Delhi’s batting. We predict that Punjab won’t score more than 45 runs in powerplay overs.
Dc:- The team will be in a question of who will lead the team? It can be Dhawan or maybe Shreyas Iyer will continue with the captainship. The bowling department of Delhi Capitals looks interesting with many overseas options like Boult, Rabada, Lamicchane, Keemo Paul with also Indian bowlers like Ishant Sharma, Bandaru Ayyappa and Avesh Khan with spin leading Amit Mishra with the back of Rahul Tewatia. It will be very difficult for the selectors to make a playing XI. here are our match predictions.
Dc predicted playing XI:- Dhawan, Shaw, Iyer, Karla, Pant, Morris, Axar, Boult, Rabada, Ishant, Lamicchane.
Kxip:-Sam Curran can be the one to play in the main XI and someone like Nicholas Pooran can help the side with its classic shots in the final overs of the play, Ashwin will be in dount to play, Mujeeb is the key for Punjab to turn the ball and get some important wickets.
Kxip predicted playing XI:- Rahul, Mandeep, Nair, Henriques, Sarfraz, Pooran, Chakravarthy, Sam Curran, Shami, Rajpoot, Mujeeb.
Key Player Battles
Mujeeb vs Lamicchane
The orthodox spinners from Afghanistan and Nepal will create a trap into oppositions wicket as they are very fond to dismiss the striking batsman, both of them made their IPL debuts last season only and they look well settled, Lamicchane did not get many games to play but after coming into recognition he will be a key for Delhi Capitals to produce as many wickets to get low scores. It will be the battle between Off-break and Leg-break. We predict Lamicchane to trap more wickets than Mujeeb.
