Delhi Capitals will lock horns with Kings XI Punjab in the second match of the Indian Premier League 2020 at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium, in Dubai, on September 20, Sunday.
The first thing that you should know about these two sides - Delhi Capitals and Kings XI Punjab have never won the Indian Premier League. Kings XI Punjab came ominously close in 2014 edition but lost out to the two-time champions Kolkata Knight Riders in the final. Delhi Capitals had their best season in the last edition as they were just one game away from getting their hands on the title but Chennai Super Kings had other plans. Delhi Capitals lost the qualifier 2 in the last season and have come back with some really experienced and serious names in that squad of theirs. While the teams prepare for this mouth-watering clash on Sunday, we are going to take a look at the best player markets from this game to bet on. Without any further delay, let's get started.
Chris Gayle and sixes - what a love story! I bet it is better than any other romance in the gentlemen's game. Well, I might have stretched that a little too much but my point here is, when Chris Gayle walks out to bat, can we expect just one six out of his hallowed willow? Naah! The big left-hander from Jamaica has smashed the highest number of sixes in the history of the Indian Premier League - 326 hits! The second best is AB de Villiers with 212 hits, who is way behind the West Indian. In 402 T20 matches, Gayle has clattered a whopping 978 sixes which is more than two sixes per game. In the last game against Delhi Capitals, Gayle smashed 5 sixes which goes on to show the kind of power he has and it is simply unparalleled. Even the nonchalant hits clear the boundaries be it of any size, such is his six-hitting prowess! In the previous season of the IPL, Gayle smashed 34 sixes in just 13 matches and that is way beyond our required market number. Bet 365 is offering odds of 1.90 for Gayle to hit more than 1.5 sixes and it should be a piece of cake for the Universe Boss!
The skipper of the Delhi Capitals has been improving since the last season of the IPL and he has done really well with the bat for India in the shorter formats of the game. Iyer led from the front in the last season as he notched up 463 runs at an average of 30.86 including three half centuries. Shreyas Iyer is the joint-third highest run getter when it comes to head-to-head encounters between these two sides as he has 245 against his name at an average of 30.63. In the 2018 edition of the IPL, Shreyas racked up 411 runs at an average of 37.36 including four fifties. He has played 62 matches in the Indian Premier League and has 1681 runs to his name at an average of 30.56. In this calendar year, the Delhi Capitals skipper has played 8 T20 games and has scored 191 runs at an average of 38.20. Dafabet is offering odds of 1.87 for Shreyas Iyer to score at least 24 runs against Kings XI Punjab and it should be quite easy for this young gun.
Cometh the hour, cometh the man - KL Rahul! What a year it has been for this man as he has been absolutely sensational in almost every single format of the game. Rahul, the all-round man of Indian cricket, played 8 matches in this calendar year and has racked up 323 runs at an average of 53.83. In the last season of the Indian Premier League, KL Rahul was the second highest run getter with 593 runs to his name at an average of 53.90 including one hundred and six fifties. In the season prior to that, KL Rahul was on a different mode altogether as he had scored 659 runs at an average of 54.91 including six fifties and he was also the third highest run getter of the season. The averages I have mentioned are way, way beyond the required market rate and there is no way we are going to lose this bet if you don’t hurry up and place your bets. Dafabet is offering odds of 1.87 for KL Rahul to score at least 27 runs against Delhi Capitals on Sunday.
