DC were sent in to bat by Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) skipper KL Rahul who has won the toss and opted to field at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium in match two of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020. Both teams have some big-hitters in their squad but on slow and low pitches in the United Arab Emirates, it might come down to who finds the right line and length with the ball. Delhi Capitals managed to qualify for the play-offs last year while Kings XI Punjab finished sixth on the points table in 2019. (LIVE SCORECARD)
