Cricket Match Preview:

Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) will take on Delhi Capitals (DC) in their first away game of this year’s Indian Premier League (IPL). KKR have already won two cricket games in the competition and will look to continue their good form in away games as well. DC, on the other hand, have had a mixed tournament so far, with a glorious victory against Mumbai Indians in Mumbai followed by a loss at home against Chennai Super Kings.

Purely on the basis of squad formation point of view, both teams are quite different. While DC’s foundation is based on young talents like Prithvi Shaw, Rishabh Pant and Shreyas Iyer, KKR’s lineup consists of T20 giants like Chris Lynn, Sunil Narine and Andre Russell. KKR also had their share of young players but two of those, Kamlesh Nagarkotti and Shivam Mavi, are out injured.

KKR had a near perfect game of cricket against Kings XI Punjab, where they got off to a brilliant start courtesy of Sunil Narine and then that start got bolstered by the knock of Nitish Rana. Robin Uthappa batted right through the innings in his knock of 67 runs and Andre Russell provided a sensational finish yet again albeit with some luck.

Shreyas Iyer, DCs skipper, will have to extract the best out of his batsmen. While he has a fantastic bowling attack at his disposal, his batsmen will have to plan their innings better. Shikhar Dhawan, Prithvi Shaw and Pant have all looked in good touch and one of these three will be expected to play a big one yet again against KKR.

The pitch in Delhi will not be as flat as in Kolkata and that will bring KKR’s spinners into the game, but it would also mean a tougher challenge for their batsmen to score runs. Nitish Rana, who is the homeboy, will be looking to share his experience of Firoz Shah Kotla with his fellow teammates. The last time these two sides met, Delhi had smashed 219 runs and had a huge win over KKR. They would be hoping for a repeat of that.

Cricket Match Information:

DC and KKR will take on each other in their third cricket game of the IPL 2019. So far, while DC have won one and lost one cricket game, KKR have played two and won both cricket games.

Delhi Capitals

Probable XI (Our Prediction):

DC are being led by young batsman Shreyas Iyer in their first ever tournament. They were earlier known as Delhi Daredevils and were led by Iyer in IPL 2018 for the latter half of the tournament. Our prediction is a similar lineup that played in their last cricket game.

Here is our prediction of DC’s playing XI:

  • Shreyas Iyer
  • Rishabh Pant
  • Shikhar Dhawan
  • Trent Boult
  • Prithvi Shaw
  • Colin Ingram
  • Hanuma Vihari
  • Axar Patel
  • Ishant Sharma
  • R Tewatia
  • Kagiso Rabada

Kolkata Knight Riders

Probable XI (Our Prediction):

KKR are being led by Dinesh Karthik for the second season in a row. He had a good experience leading KKR last year and took the team into the playoffs. Our prediction is of almost the same playing eleven that played in the last cricket game.

Here is our prediction of KKR’s playing XI:

  • Shubhman Gill
  • Chris Lynn
  • Sunil Narine
  • Andre Russell
  • Nitish Rana
  • Dinesh Karthik
  • Prasidh Krishna
  • Piyush Chawla
  • Lokie Ferguson
  • Kuldeep Yadav
  • Robin Uthappa

Cricket Statistics and Prediction:

Shreyas Iyer had a memorable outing against KKR last year. Our prediction is of another good outing for him in the game against KKR.

Cricket Match Conditions and Pitch:

The last cricket game played on this ground showed that it was a slow pitch. While there was some help for pacers if they hit the right length, it was still a slow wicket. Our prediction is of a score of around 160 this time around. Conditions are expected to be dry.

Our Prediction:

KKR will begin this game of cricket as slight favourites. They have a better overall record against DC but will have to be careful against the latter as they have some dangerous batsmen in their lineup.

Top Batsman (Prediction):

Nitish Rana (KKR) – 50+ runs

Top Bowler (Prediction):

Kuldeep Yadav (KKR) – 2 or more wickets

Most Sixes (Prediction):

Robin Uthappa (KKR)
