In the first doubleheader of IPL 2020 two exciting matches are scheduled. Royals will take on Challengers in first match and Capitals will take on Knight Riders in the second match.
The second match between Delhi Capitals and Kolkata Knight Riders will be played at Sharjah Cricket Stadium. Both teams will be playing their first match at the venue. Taking into consideration the last two matches played another high scoring match will be on offer. Delhi Capitals would want to get back to winning ways. Their batting was kept within the check by Hyderabad bowling team. Ponting said that they could not capitalise on favourable conditions, he was referring to dew in second innings, which shows how good were SRH bowlers.

With short boundaries, DC would hope that Pant would play with more freedom and score at the rate for which he is known for. Bowling lead by Rabada looks good but then bowling in a ground where dew does play its part will be interesting to see how they will fare if there is dew. KKR would be confident of their chances on basis of their last match victory against Royals. They have a formidable top order and can chase down anything.
Their bowling looks good with Cummins getting back into rhythm with young duo of Mavi and Nagarkoti complimenting him well. Fielding has been very average throughout IPL so both teams would like to improve on that part.
In the last match, Royals chased down 223 runs target by scoring 89 in last 28 balls, which means that any score is not safe and margin of error for bowlers is very very minimum. Both teams have players capable of clearing ground but if we go man to man KKR looks more dangerous and start as favourites.
