IPL 2020 LIVE SCORE, Delhi Capitals vs Kings XI Punjab latest updates: And that's it. Two off the second ball and DC have clinched the win. Down the leg stump line and Pant guided it to fine leg region, the fielder cut it off and threw but by that time, two runs had been completed. DC finally wins the contest, after almost giving it up and collects two points. Punjab and especially Mayank must be gutted.
The last time the tournament was partially held in UAE in 2014, KXIP went onto reach the final, where they eventually lost to Kolkata Knight Riders.
They haven’t reached the playoffs since.
Rahul has been consistent over the last few years, ending up as KXIP’s highest run-scorer in 2018 and 2019, despite his team finishing below the top four. He will be supported by the likes of Chris Gayle and Mayank Agarwal at the top of the order while Afghanistan’s Mujeeb Ur Rahman and India’s Murugan Ashwin will head the spin department.
As always, Shikhar Dhawan will play a crucial role for DC at the top pf the batting order. Sportzpics
