Delhi Capitals vs Kolkata Knight Riders Team Previews

Delhi Capitals (Match Odds – 2.00)

Prithvi Shaw ignited the match with 60 runs off 34 balls, but they collapsed in the middle overs with the score at 80/4. Rishabh Pant (51 runs) and Shimron Hetmyer (37 runs) batted brilliantly to share an 83-run partnership, propelling their team to a fantastic total of 172/5 in 20 overs.

Early in the game, Anrich Nortje dismissed countrymate Faf Du Plessis. They were unable to get wickets early on until Tom Curran took three crucial wickets in the middle overs. However, he was unable to defend 13 runs in the final over. As the CSK won the match, Ravi Ashwin, Axar Patel, Avesh Khan, and Kagiso Rabada were unable to control the run flow.

Pant scored 51 runs off 35 balls and played a quality knock to bring his team back from the brink of defeat and lead the charge in the final overs. We expect him to bat similarly in this match and help his team score an additional 20 runs.

Nortje is a fast bowler who can cause problems for batsmen with his pace and bounce. We expect him to make an impact with the ball against KKR’s top order on the power play.

Kolkata Knight Riders (Match Odds – 1.80)

KKR openers Shubman Gill (29 runs) and Venkatesh Iyer (26 runs) got the team off to a good start, scoring 48 runs on the power play. Nitish Rana contributed 23 runs, but Sunil Narine’s 15-ball 26 runs was the game changer, as he hit his first three balls for sixes. Dinesh Karthik, Eoin Morgan, and Shakib Al Hasan cruised past the 139-run mark in 19.4 overs.

Spinners Shakib Al Hasan, Sunil Narine, and Varun Chakravarty were relentless in their pursuit of the batsmen, finishing with combined figures of 12-0-65-4. Lockie Ferguson took two crucial wickets, while Shivam Mavi was slightly expensive in his four overs in the previous game, and Venkatesh Iyer could contribute with the ball if needed.

Narine made the difference with both bat and ball, taking four wickets and scoring 26 runs at a rapid pace on a difficult pitch. We expect him to continue his strong performance in this match, which will be played on the same field.

Gill set the tone early on with his 18-ball 29 runs that included some scintillating shots. However, he was a little too aggressive, which led to his downfall. In this match, he will be a crucial member of KKR’s top order.

Delhi Capitals vs Kolkata Knight Riders Toss Prediction

With a 6-3 win-loss record at this venue, chasing is the best option. Teams batting second may choose to time their innings according to the target on the board.

To Win the Toss – Delhi Capitals – 1.85

To Win the Toss – Kolkata Knight Riders – 1.85

Pitch and Weather Conditions

The Sharjah pitch slows down as the game progresses, making it difficult for batsmen to score freely outside of the power play. If the dew settles on this pitch, chasing becomes slightly easier. In this match, we anticipate average scores of 150-160 runs.

Sharjah will be hot and humid, and the dew may settle down in the second innings, making it difficult for the bowlers to grip the ball.

Delhi Capitals vs Kolkata Knight Riders Match Prediction

Outside of the top six, DC lacks batting depth and will be eager to add Marcus Stoinis in this match if he is available. Due to their recent poor form, they may be forced to leave out Ravi Ashwin or Kagiso Rabada. KKR has a well-balanced and deep batting lineup, with batters capable of scoring big runs all the way up to No. 8, but their lower middle order has struggled with form and consistency this season. KKR’s strength this season has been spin bowling, and we expect them to make an impact in this match as well. We believe KKR will win this game due to their superior and in-form spin attack.

Kolkata Knight Riders is the favorites to beat Delhi Capitals at the odds of 1.80.

  • KKR won six of their eight matches in the UAE leg and defeated RCB in the eliminator to advance to the qualifiers.
  • DC has won four of seven matches in the UAE leg and is currently on a two-match losing streak.
  • This season, KKR has won all three matches played at this venue, while DC has a 1-1 win-loss record, with their loss coming against KKR.
