Why bet on the Delhi Capitals to have the highest opening partnership @1.85 ?

Delhi Capitals have the most prolific openers in the IPL this season – Prithvi Shaw and Shikhar Dhawan have scored more runs together than any other opening pair this season. Both are in brilliant form and both feature in the top 4 individual run-scorers list as well, with Dhawan the current holder of the coveted Orange Cap. 

Previous Record Against Punjab Kings – In the first match between these two sides this season, Shikhar Dhawan absolutely destroyed the Punjab bowling attack as he raced to 92 off just 49 balls. Shaw had earlier given an explosive start with 32 in 17, as the duo out up 59 for the first wicket in just 5.3 overs.

Punjab Kings have great openers but no partnerships – While KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal both have accumulated a huge number of runs as always, they haven’t been consistent as a pair, with only one huge opening partnership between them.

KXIP vs DC who will win?

It is difficult to spot a huge gulf in class between these two teams, as most matches have been close enough contests.

DC vs KXIP Betting Strategies

Among the recent Delhi vs KXIP matches, there have been a mixture of close contests and comfortable wins. Since 2017, Kings XI Punjab have picked up some big wins –by five or more wickets –in several campaigns and one should not discount the likelihood of a big win.

Who will Win

The DC vs KXIP matches have always been a close contest. It is also reflected in the head-to-head numbers. The form table and results in the group will have a significant role to play in determining the likelihood of wins.

Top Batsman

KL Rahul has been among the ‘Player of the Match’ on numerous occasions for KXIP during the recent IPL seasons. He sits well above other batsmen in terms of average even if his strike rate is not exceptional. As the star asset of KXIP, Rahul is the pick for this market.

Top Bowler

Mohammad Shami was the top wicket-taker for KXIP in the recent seasons. He will be a player to watch alongside Kagiso Rabada, who is no stranger to managing 25+ wickets during a single IPL season. The top tip would be to back either of the two.

Player Betting

KL Rahul has been the recipient of Orange Cap titles for the team – like in the 2020 IPL season. He has been exceptional during the recent campaigns. The top pick would be for Rahul in the Delhi vs KXIP game. Delhi’s key player in recent seasons is Shikhar Dhawan.

Partnership Betting

The likes of Marcus Stoinis and Shikhar Dhawan are likely to be valuable players for Shreyas Iyer and his team in the Delhi vs KXIP matches. KL Rahul has been the player with most runs for the KXIP team during recent IPL seasons. He could form a good partnership with Mayank Agarwal.
