In the ancient times, knights are used to protect the kingdom avoiding the enemies from entering their kingdom.  KKR are currently in a similar situation where their every loss will raise the interest among the bottom placed 4 teams. KKR will need to win matches consistently to keep the other teams in the bay in the qualification race. Delhi Capitals are placed comfortably at the top but they cannot allow complacency as they might lose the momentum build in the crucial stages of the tournament. They must look to continue their winning ways to give a strong finish to the league phase.

Kolkata Knight Riders Preview

KKR batting unit produced the worst performance of the season as they ended with just 84/8 in 20 overs. Shubman Gill (312 runs) and Eoin Morgan (278 runs) have scored the bulk of runs for the team while Nitish Rana, Andre Russell, Dinesh Karthik, and Rahul Tripathi are highly inconsistent so far.

Their bowlers were left with too little in the last match defending a modest 85 runs. Lockie Ferguson has been a great addition to their bowling department alongside Pat Cummins, Andre Russell, Kamlesh Nagarkoti, and Shivam Mavi in the team. Varun Chakravarthy and Kuldeep Yadav are expected to partner in the spin department in the absence of Sunil Narine.  

Top players to bet on:

Shubman Gill – Gill has been blowing hot and cold this season and has scored 312 runs at a strike rate of 111. He must look to make a big score at the top and set a platform for his team in this match.

Lockie Ferguson – Ferguson has 4 wickets in the 2 matches and given runs at economy rate of 4 RPO. We expect him to continue to rattle the batsmen with his change ups and raw pace in this match.

Kolkata Knight Riders Predicted Playing XI:

Shubman Gill, Rahul Tripathi, Siddhesh Lad, Andre Russell/Tom Banton, Eoin Morgan (c), Dinesh Karthik (wk), Pat Cummins, Lockie Ferguson, Kuldeep Yadav, Prasidh Krishna, Varun Chakravarthy

Delhi Capitals Preview

Delhi Capitals batting has been off-color in the last couple of matches and Shikhar Dhawan has been a standout batsmen for them.  He scored 106 runs off 61 balls while the rest of the players scored just 54 runs off 59 balls. Shreyas Iyer and Marcus Stoinis are in good nick with big scores to their name while Rishab Pant and Hetmyer`s return will add more stability.

Anrich Nortje and Kagiso Rabada form a deadly pace duo who can trouble any batsmen with their pace and bounce. They have the strongest spin department with the likes of Ravi Ashwin and Axar Patel who have claimed 8 wickets each at an economy rate of less than 7 RPO.

Top players to bet on:

Shikhar Dhawan – Dhawan is putting on a show with scores of 69*, 57, 101*, & 106* in the last 4 innings. He has batted throughout the match in 3 occasions and has been dismissed only once scoring 333 runs in last 4 matches.

Kagiso Rabada – Rabada is well and truly clear over his next bowler in the wickets charts with 21 wickets in 10 matches at an economy of 7.6 RPO. DC are dialing for Rabada when in need of wickets and he is producing them at ease.

Delhi Capitals Predicted Playing XI:

Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer (c), Rishabh Pant (wk), Marcus Stoinis, Shimron Hetmyer, Daniel Sams, Axar Patel, Ravichandran Ashwin, Kagiso Rabada, Mohit Sharma/Harshal Patel

Weather Conditions

Abu Dhabi will have extremely humid climate and dew might settle down in the later stages of the match. No weather interruptions are expected in the soils of UAE.  

Venue Details

Abu Dhabi had some spice in it early on in the match and the RCB bowlers made full use of it last match. Batsmen take control if they can weather the storm. We expect the scores to be around 160-180 runs in this match.

Toss: To Bowl

Chasing teams have won 7 out of the last 9 matches while the remaining 2 matches were tied. We expect both captains to chase the total if they win the toss.

KKR are currently in a turmoil which changing captaincy and poor batting show in the last match. But they have good account of the conditions as they have 4-3 win-loss record at this venue. DC are going are going through their own set of problems with batting unit and they have lost both the matches played here this season.  But, DC has one of the strongest bowling attacks in the tournament and we expect them to win this match.
