DC vs KXIP Match Preview
Delhi Capitals will face off against the Kings XI Punjab in the 2nd game of the Dream11 IPL 2020. Led by two young captains Shreyas Iyer and KL Rahul, both these sides will look to begin their campaign on a positive note.
However, before they take on each other, both the captains will have to answer some important quiries. Finding the proper combination for their first game of the tournament will be a huge challenge. There are many options available for both the teams. However, coaches Ricky Ponting (DC) and Anil Kumble (KXIP) should ease down the burden on the young skippers. In previous seasons, Kings XI Punjab has had a slight upper hand against the Delhi Capitals and they might wish to maintain that record going forward.
