IPL is reaching a crucial phase where each victory will change the qualification equation for the teams. Delhi capitals are almost qualified and doing musical chairs with Chennai Super Kings for the top spot in the table after every match. They outdid Rajasthan Royals and Sunrisers Hyderabad in the second leg so far and all set to face the teams in the top-half of the table in their remaining matches. Kolkata Knight Riders beat Mumbai Indians and Royal Challengers Bangalore and lost to CSK in a last ball thriller last game. They will look to win this match and move ahead in the mid table qualification race.

Kolkata Knight Riders Preview

Kolkata Knight Riders have looked a completely different unit in the second leg with their batters taking the aggressive route. Venkatesh Iyer (110 runs) have set the powerplay ablaze with Rahul Tripathi (119 runs) and Subman Gill (70 runs). Nitish Rana (37 runs), Andre Russell (20 runs), and Dinesh Karthik (26 runs) applied the finishing touches in the last game.

Pacers Lockie Ferguson and Prasidh Krishna have shared the new ball and are taking wickets consistently. Spin duo of Varun Chakravarthy and Sunil Narine has been their trump card and they are acing their tricks even in the death overs. Andre Russell was injured in the last match and Tim Southee might replace him if he is unavailable.  

Top players to bet on:

Rahul Tripathi – Tripathi has been their top scorer in last 2 matches with scores of 74* & 45 runs. He is in supreme form and we expect him to make yet another big score in this match too.

Varun Chakravarthy – Chakravarthy has been the most threatening bowler in the second phase with figures of 0/22, 3/13, & 1/22 in the 3 matches played so far. We expect him to continue his superb form in this match too.

Kolkata Knight Riders Predicted Playing XI:

Shubman Gill, Venkatesh Iyer, Rahul Tripathi, Eoin Morgan (c), Nitish Rana, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Andre Russell/Tim Southee, Sunil Narine, Lockie Ferguson, Varun Chakaravarthy, Prasidh Krishna

Delhi Capitals Preview

Delhi Capitals batting unit has been led by Shreyas Iyer`s 40+ knocks in the first two matches. Shikhar Dhawan, Shimron Hetmyer, and Rishabh Pant have played some good cameos in the middle order. Their batting line-up has not made big scores so far but will need to improve their finishing skills in this match.

Pacers Anrich Nortje and Kagiso Rabada have threatened the batters with their speed and accuracy while spin duo of Ravi Ashwin and Axar Patel have been strangling the batsmen in the middle overs and chipping in crucial wickets too. Avesh khan has been their perfect puzzle to complete their five-man bowling attack with economical spells in death.

Top players to bet on:

Shreyas Iyer – Shreyas Iyer made scores of 47* & 43 in the two matches and top scored for his team in both innings. We expect him to make a big score in this match and he is looking in great touch post his return in the second leg.

Anrich Nortje – Nortje has bowling figures of 4-0-18-2 & 4-0-12-2 in the two matches and has been their bst bowler in the second leg. His ability to bowl the bouncers and yorkers at nearly 150 Kmph has never given any breathing space to opposition batters.

Delhi Capitals Predicted Playing XI:

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

Weather Conditions

Sharjah will have sunny and bright climate with high temperatures on the match day. Sandstorm might delay the match but won’t impact on the outcome with reduced overs.

Venue Details

Sharjah pitch has been on the slower side and teams are struggling to make big scores here despite the small dimensions of the ground. Batsmen must look to score more runs early as the ball might be hard to time if it loses its shine. We expect an average score of 140-160 runs on this pitch.

Toss: To Bat

Teams opted to bowl first expecting the dew to settle in the second innings in the first two matches but were outfoxed by the conditions. We expect both teams to bat first in this match because the ball slows down in the second innings.

DC has one of the very well balanced batting and bowling units in the tournament with a lot of quality players. Their big weakness has been the absence of a quality all-rounder who can perform well equally in both departments with Marcus Stoinis down with injury. KKR has a great depth in their batting unit with batters coming in at No.6 to 8 capable of making quick-fire 20s & 30s. Their spin duo has been their biggest strength but Prasidh Krishna and Andre Russell have went for few runs in the last 2 matches. We expect KKR to win this match owing to their spin duo`s effectiveness on this slow track.

KOLKATA KNIGHT RIDERS will win the match
