Teams Preview

Delhi Capitals Preview

Prithvi Shaw set the match on blaze with his 60 runs off 34 balls in the match but they suffered a collapse in middle overs with score at 80/4. Rishabh Pant (51 runs) and Shimron Hetmyer (37 runs) batted beautifully to share an 83-run partnership as they took their team to a superb total of 172/5 in the 20 overs.

Anrich Nortje dismissed country mate Faf Du Plessis early in the match. They failed to get wickets early until Tom Curran picked up 3 crucial wickets in the middle overs. But he failed to defend 13 runs in the final over. Ravi Ashwin, Axar Patel, Avesh Khan, and Kagiso Rabada failed to control the run flow as the CSK went onto win the match.

Top players to bet on:

Rishabh Pant – Pant scored 51 runs off 35 balls and played a quality knock to revive his team from collapse and lead the charge in the final overs. We expect him to continue batting similarly in this match and help his team post the extra 20 runs.

Anrich Nortje – Nortje is an express pace bowler who can trouble batsmen with his pace and bounce. We expect him to make a mark with the ball in the power play against KKR`s top order.

Delhi Capitals Predicted Playing XI:

Shikhar Dhawan, Prithvi Shaw, Rishabh Pant (c & wk), Shreyas Iyer, Shimron Hetmyer, Marcus Stoinis, Axar Patel, Ravichandran Ashwin/Amit Mishra, Kagiso Rabada/Tom Curran, Avesh Khan, Anrich Nortje

Kolkata Knight Riders Preview

KKR openers Shubman Gill (29 runs) and Venkatesh Iyer (26 runs) gave a decent start as they scored 48 runs in the power play. Nitish Rana played a vital hand of 23 runs but Sunil Narine`s 15-ball 26 runs was the game changer as he smashed his first 3 balls for sixes. Dinesh Karthik, Eoin Morgan, and Shakib Al Hasan strolled their way past 139-run total in 19.4 overs.

Spinners Shakib Al Hasan, Sunil Narine, and Varun Chakravarty were relentless and kept attacking the batsmen and had combined bowling figures of 12-0-65-4. Lockie Ferguson picked up 2 crucial wickets while Shivam Mavi was slightly expensive in his 4 overs in the last game and Venkatesh Iyer might chip in wih the ball if needed.

Top players to bet on:

Sunil Narine – Narine made the difference with both bat and ball as he picked up 4 wickets smashed 26 runs at a quick rate on a tough pitch. We expect him to continue his good showing in this match too on the very same pitch.

Shubman Gill – Gill set the tone at the start with his 18-ball 29 runs with some scintillating shots. But he went little too aggressive which caused his down fall. He will be a very vital member at the top of the order for KKR in this match.

Kolkata Knight Riders Predicted Playing XI:

Shubman Gill, Venkatesh Iyer, Nitish Rana, Rahul Tripathi, Eoin Morgan (c), Dinesh Karthik (wk), Shakib Al Hasan, Sunil Narine, Lockie Ferguson, Shivam Mavi/Prasidh Krishna, Varun Chakaravarthy

Weather Conditions

Sharjah will have hot and humid conditions and the dew might settle down in the second innings to trouble the bowlers to grip the ball.

Venue Details

Sharjah pitch slows down as the match progresses and batsmen struggle to score runs freely outside the power play. Chasing becomes slightly easier if dew settles down on this pitch. We expect the average scores to be around 150-160 runs in this match.

Toss: To Bowl

Chasing is the best option with 6-3 win-loss record at this venue so far. Teams batting second might time their innings as per the target on board.

DC vs KKR Winning Prediction

DC lacks depth in the batting department outside top-6 and will be eager to add Marcus Stoinis in this match if he is available. They might be forced to leave out Ravi Ashwin or Kagiso Rabada owing to their indifferent form in recent matches. KKR has a very balanced and deep batting line-up with batters capable of making big scores till No.8 but their lower middle order lacks form and consistency this season. Spin bowling has been KKR`s strength this season and we expect them to make a mark in this match too. We expect KKR to win this match owing to their superior and in-form spin attack.

KOLKATA KNIGHT RIDERS will win the match
