The Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 action shifts to Dubai on Sunday as Delhi Capitals (DC) will be locking horns with Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) i.the second match of the 13th edition. With an already strong Indian core led by Shreyas Iyer, DC will be looking to go further than what they managed in 2019.
On the other hand, KXIP’s aspirations were clear during the auctions when they bought stalwarts like Glenn Maxwell and Chris Jordan. But there are still some question marks over the captaincy of KL Rahul, who will be under the pump from the outset. Both teams won one game each when they met in the 2019 IPL league phase, although Kings XI Punjab leads the overall battle with 14 wins. Delhi, meanwhile, has managed only 10 victories.

Let us take you all to the Probable Fantasy XI you can create with the following tips:-
With none of the players having much of a practice, KL Rahul seems to be a better pick as he has been known for making a strong comeback and he will be much more effective on slow pitches this season. However, for DC, Rishabh Pant will be expected to play some match-winning knocks, but in order to maintain the balance of the IPL Fantasy XI, Dhoni seems better pick.
Chris Gayle, Mayank Agarwal, Shreyas Iyer, Shikhar Dhawan, and Prithvi Shaw have always been the prime contenders for the fantasy cricket. Even, Sarfaraz Khan can be added in fantasy cricket and that will depend on the balance of the squad. Apart from them, there are some useful batsmen in the line-ups as well, like Ajinkya Rahane, and Karun Nair (if he plays).

There are some really reliable all-rounders in both the teams but citing the slow pitch in Dubai, Axar Patel, Marcus Stoinis, and Glenn seems to be the perfect fit. Apart from them, the good all-rounders for IPL fantasy cricket are Krishnappa Gowtham and Chris Woakes.
Both the teams don’t have decent bowling line-ups but they have managed to do a decent job. Bowlers like Mohammad Shami, Kagiso Rabada, and R Ashwin become the obvious choices for the IPL Fantasy XI on the sticky track of Dubai. Apart from them, some crucial bowlers can be like, Mujeeb ur Rahaman and Amit Mishra.
