  • David Warner has been displaying excellent form recently, notching scores of 49 and 52 in the previous two matches. Consider supporting him as the top batter for DC.

Team NEWS: 

DC Team News: 

In the last match, Kuldeep Yadav was sidelined due to a minor injury. Should he have recuperated, he is likely to be reinstated in the playing XI.

Kolkata Knight Riders to beat Delhi Capitals.

Delhi Capitals a 73% chance to win this match 

Kolkata Knight Riders have a 27% chance to win this match 

Key Players: 

Delhi Capitals 

David Warner 

Warner followed his impressive 49-run innings against RR with a fluent 52 against CSK. Displaying a destructive form, he dominated the CSK attack, striking five fours and three sixes. Warner’s approach of attacking from the outset has been fruitful, providing him with a license to unleash his aggression from the first ball, which has yielded positive results thus far.

Mitchell Marsh 

Mitchell Marsh has shown promise, although he’s yet to produce a substantial innings. His position in the batting order has been shifted to make room for Prithvi Shaw as an opener. However, it seems only a matter of time before Marsh delivers a noteworthy performance for DC.

Kuldeep Yadav 

If Kuldeep Yadav is deemed fit and ready, he will play a significant role for DC. With KKR fielding several left-handed batters in their playing XI, Kuldeep’s presence will be crucial for DC against these potent southpaws. Nevertheless, his skills are versatile enough to dismiss right-handed batters effectively as well.

Axar Patel 

Axar Patel has consistently proven his worth for DC over the years, excelling with both bat and ball. His contribution was pivotal in DC’s victory over CSK, conceding just 20 runs while claiming the crucial wicket of Daryl Mitchell. Additionally, he serves as a dependable batsman lower down the order.

DC Possible Impact Player Substitutes 

Abishek Porel, Jake Frazer McGurk, Praveen Dubey, Kumar Kushagra, Rasikh Salam 

Abishek Porel has the potential to serve as an impact player for the team, capable of contributing an additional 20 to 30 runs lower down the order. However, if a bowler is required, Rasikh Salam should be the preferred option.

Kolkata Knight Riders 

Phil Salt 

Phil Salt has showcased strong performances in the two matches he has participated in thus far. He posted a score of 54 runs in the initial game against SRH and followed it up with a 30-run innings against RCB. With his proficiency in this format of the game and demonstrated consistency in recent outings, Salt emerges as a pivotal player for KKR.

Sunil Narine 

Narine proves to be an invaluable asset in cricket. Renowned for his bowling prowess, he poses a significant threat to opposing batting line-ups. However, his performance against RCB demonstrated his match-winning capabilities with the bat as well, as he scored 47 runs off 22 balls, including five sixes.

Andre Russell 

Russell plays a pivotal role in the KKR lineup due to his versatile skills. With his proficiency both with the bat and the ball, he remains a constant threat on the field. In the first game, he exhibited his batting prowess by scoring a blazing 64 runs. Although he didn’t have the opportunity to bat in the second game, he made a valuable contribution with the ball, claiming two wickets for 29 runs.

Rinku Singh 

Rinku Singh hasn’t had ample opportunities yet, but he’s shown excellent form. In case KKR encounters difficulties, Singh is poised to step up and rescue the team, potentially putting them in a position of advantage.

KKR Possible Impact Player Substitutes 

Suyash Sharma, Vaibhav Arora, Manish Pandey, Angrish Raghuvanshi, Rahmanullah Gurbaz 

It’s anticipated that there might be spin-friendly conditions, making Suyash an ideal candidate for an impact role. In case KKR requires a batter, Manish Pandey stands ready to contribute with his skills.
