Pitch and Weather:  It will be a typical Dubai surface where it will be slow and batsmen won’t find it that easy to score runs. Pacers might get some assistance with the new ball, while spinners also will be handy. The weather is likely to be sunny with the temperature touching to the late 30s even though it is a 6.00 PM start.

Date & Time: October 8, 6.00 PM Local time, 7.30 PM IST

Probable Playing XIs

Delhi Capitals will look to continue with the same playing XI as they won the last game against CSK. Prithvi Shaw will open with Shikhar Dhawan at the top. Shimron Hetmyer is playing crucial knocks in the middle order so he is likely to get another game.
