dc vs kkr Match Prediction & Analysis

IPL has the set the stage on fire with some thrilling action on the field awing the cricketing audiences. Delhi Capitals have started the season on a good note with back-to-back wins but lost their previous match to Sunrisers Hyderabad. Kolkata Knight Riders after losing their opening match have won two back-to-back matches on a row. Both teams are yet to play in Sharjah and their bowlers will need to adjust to the dimensions of the ground quickly. We expect an high scoring contest in this match with the likes of Russell, Morgan, Gill, Pant, Shreyas Iyer, and Marcus Stoinis in contention. 

Teams Preview

Delhi Capitals Preview

Delhi Capitals batting unit failed to chase down163 runs against SRH at Abu Dhabi last game. Prithvi Shaw and Marcus Stoinis are the only players to score fifties for the team while Shreyas Iyer, Shikhar Dhawan, and Rishab pant have got starts of 20s & 30s but are yet to make a big score so far. Shimron Hetmyer is having a poor season with bat and in the field so far.

Kagiso rabada has been their best bowler this season picking up 7 wickets at an economy rate of less than 6 RPO. Spinners Amit Mishra and Axar Patel has been good with the ball bowling economically despite fewer wickets to their name. Ishant Sharma and Anrich Nortje will partner Rabada in the pace department and they have an excellent bowling line-up with 5 bowlers alongside all-rounder Stoinis.

Top players to bet on:

Rishab Pant - Pant scores of 28, 37, & 31 in the three matches so far. Sharjah will be a perfect place to unleash himself with a flat pitch and smaller boundaries on offer.

Kagiso Rabada - Rabada has picked 2+ wickets in the last 10 matches consecutively and it speaks volumes about his consistency with the ball. We expect him to make inroads in the opposition line-up in this match too.

Delhi Capitals Predicted Playing XI:

Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Rishabh Pant (wk), Shreyas Iyer (c), Shimron Hetmyer, Marcus Stoinis, Axar Patel, Amit Mishra, Kagiso Rabada, Ishant Sharma, Anrich Nortje

Kolkata Knight Riders Preview

Kolkata Knight Riders got the better off SRH & RR in their last two matches. Shubman Gill and Eoin Morgan have scored the bulk of runs in the two matches while Nitish Rana and Andre Russell have played 20+ cameos with the bat. Narine experiment at the top seems to be not working and skipper`s form are the areas of concern for the team in batting department.

KKR bowling might was on full display last night. They have three pacers and three spinners alongside Russell and Rana in the playing XI. Pat Cummins have joined forces with young Indian speedsters Shivam Mavi and Kamlesh Nagarkoti to form a good pace attack. Varun Chakarvarthy is in good form with the ball while Narine is struggling at the moment.

Top players to bet on:

Eoin Morgan - Morgan has scores of 34* & 42* in the last two matches playing vital knocks lower doen the order. Morgan will look to clear the boundary with smaller boundaries on both sides of the pitch.

Pat Cummins- Cummins made a superb comeback after this bad opening match with figures of 4-0-19-1 & 3-0-13-1. His has taken the wickets in the powerplay and will look to do the same in this match too.

Kolkata Knight Riders Predicted Playing XI:

Shubman Gill, Sunil Narine, Nitish Rana, Dinesh Karthik (c & wk), Eoin Morgan, Andre Russell, Pat Cummins, Shivam Mavi, Kuldeep Yadav, Varun Chakravarthy, Kamlesh Nagarkoti

Weather Conditions

Sharjah will have a hot and humid climate with no chances of rain. Dew might settle down in the latter stages of the match here.

Venue Details

Sharjah is a batting paradise where bowlers are reduced to mere bowling machines with the ball. Bowlers will look to usual their variations and slower balls to deceive the batsmen here. All four innings player here had 200+ totals and we expect yet another high scoring contest in this match too.

Toss: To Bowl

Last match RR chased down 220+ runs on this pitch and no score is safe on this track. We expect both teams to chase as no target is safe here.

DC vs KKR Winning Prediction

Both teams have a good balanced playing XI with batting and bowling departments. KKR bowlers have taken advantage of the big dimensions of the Abu Dhabi and restricted the opposition to below 150 in last two matches and their young players Mavi, Nagarkoti, and Chakravarthy have the challenge of adjusting to Sharjah. DC bowling has a lot of pace on offer with the likes of Ishant Sharma, Anrich Nortje, and Kagiso Rabada who can click 140+ consistently. We expect Delhi capitals to win this match owing to their experienced bowling attack and indifferent form of Narine, Russell, and Dinesh Karthik in the KKR team so far.
