The 38th match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 will be played between Delhi Capitals and Kings XI Punjab at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Dubai.
This game is scheduled to start at 07:30 PM IST (06:00 PM local time) (02:00 PM UTC). The game will be telecasted on the Star Sports Network (Available in English, Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, Kannada and Bengali). Also, live streaming will be available on Disney+ Hotstar.
The Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) have delighted us with a roller coaster of a game when they took on Mumbai Indians (MI) on Sunday. For the first time ever in the history of IPL, the game went into the second Super Over. In the end, it was KL Rahul and his men who held onto their nerves and registered a fabulous victory. Moreover, they also have kept their chances alive in the tournament.
Beating a team like MI, which has been doing extremely well in the tournament, will give them a lot of confidence. In their next encounter, they gear up to take on another big team – the Delhi Capitals (DC). The Capitals are going strong with 7 wins in 9 games and are currently the leaders of the points table. They would be hopeful of getting another step closer to the Qualifier-1 match with a win this game.
