IPL 2020 LIVE SCORE, Delhi Capitals vs Kings XI Punjab latest updates: Hello and welcome to live coverage of Match number 2 between Delhi Capitals and Kings XI Punjab to be played at Dubai International Cricket Stadium in Dubai.

Preview: Kings XI Punjab, led by their new captain KL Rahul, will begin their Indian Premier League (IPL) campaign against Delhi Capitals, captained by Shreyas Iyer. Both the teams had contrasting campaigns last time around, with DC entering the playoffs but faltering, while KXIP finished sixth.

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.
