The second match of the IPL will be played between Kings XI Punjab and Delhi Capitals today. The match will be telecast at 7:30 pm.
This is the second match of the IPL season. Earlier in the first match, Chennai Super Kings defeated Mumbai Indians by 5 wickets. This time due to Corona virus, the IPL has started late and is being played in the UAE.
Delhi Capitals are ready to storm in IPL
This time, Delhi Capitals are seen as a very strong team in the IPL. Although the performance of Delhi Capitals has not been so spectacular in the history of IPL so far. Delhi Capitals have a strong player like Prithvi Shaw as an opener. Who can turn the match dice at any time.
The same Rishabh Pant Simran Hit Maier and Alex Carey work to strengthen the team. The opening pair of Shikhar Dhawan and Prithvi Shaw are expected to make it to the Delhi Capitals this time in the IPL.
Talking as a wicketkeeper, Delhi Capitals have two options. One is Rishabh Pant and the other is Alex Carey. However, it is expected that the wicket-keeping will be done by Rishabh Pant.
Alex Carey recently scored a brilliant century in the Australia series against England. Which is a good sign for Delhi Capitals. A similar performance would be expected by Alex Carey to Delhi Capitals.
On the other hand, if we talk about bowling in Delhi Capitals, then here also Delhi Capitals have big names. Talking about Indian names, Ishant Sharma is present in it. While South African fast bowler Kagiso Rabada is also a big name. Which can do wonders for Delhi Capitals. Kagiso Rabada had a great performance in the last IPL season. Once again Delhi Capitals will be expecting a similar performance from Kagiso Rabada.
Delhi Capitals could not perform as a team
However, it has been seen in the history of IPL that Delhi Capitals are unable to perform as a team. And in big matches, the team falls apart. However, Delhi Capitals perform well in the opening matches. But later the performance of Delhi Capitals falls down. To avoid this, Delhi Capitals will have to do something new in the IPL this time. However, the team has definitely added a strong player in the form of Ravichandran Ashwin. But it will be interesting to see what new Ashwin can do for Delhi Capitals.
Kings XI Punjab has a strong team in IPL
Kings XI Punjab have a strong batting lineup and good bowling for this season of IPL. However, it is said about Kings XI Punjab that the team has come as strong as on paper. She does not perform as well on the field.
In this IPL season, Kings XI Punjab will have to take it from themselves. Talking about batting, Kings XI Punjab has a big name like Chris Gayle. Which can change the match at any time. And can win matches on its own. However Chris Gayle’s performance has seen a drop in recent times. Which is a concern.
Also present is a player like Glenn Maxwell. Recently he had a great performance in the ODI series against England and a similar performance would be expected by kings XI Punjab. Apart from this, Kings XI Punjab has big names like KL Rahul Mayank Agarwal Nicholas Puran in batting.
If we talk about the bowling of Kings XI Punjab, then the team also has big names here. Kings XI Punjab have good pace bowlers in the form of Chris Jordan and Mohammed Shami. Which alone can win the match. However, it has been observed that Mohammed Shami proves to be expensive during IPL matches. Which is a concern for Kings XI Punjab.
If we talk about the spin bowling department of Kings XI Punjab, then there are players like Mujib ur Rehman and Ravi Bishnoi. Mujib ur Rehman is one of the best spin bowlers in the IPL. At the same time, Mujib ur Rehman is also known for his batting. The same Ravi Bishnoi as Kings XI Punjab has a new player in spin bowling.
In such a situation, it will be interesting to see now that in this second match of IPL, Delhi Capitals will win or Kings XI Punjab. The match will be broadcast live on Disney Plus Hotstar and Star Sports Network from 7:30 in the evening.
