Teams Preview

Delhi Capitals

Delhi Capitals with their first two performances looked extremely solid. Unfortunately, the collapse of the middle order cost them the game against SRH. They bowled tight lengths and limited the score to 163 against the likes of David Warner and Bairstow.

The batting department looked feeble against SRH when their last match hero Prithvi Shaw edged to the keeper in the very first over itself. Southpaw Shikhar Dhawan scored 34 runs off 31 balls however his best is yet to come. A good partnership was in the making when Shreyas Iyer, who had scored a scratchy 17 runs off 21 balls, departed trying to accelerate. Rishabh Pant seemed promising in his 28 runs but couldn't take the team home and all they could manage was a mere 147/7 in  20 overs.

The bowling was phenomenal, all credit to their star bowler Kagiso Rabada. The pressure he created in his 4 overs giving only 21 runs gave him 2 key wickets. Ishant Sharma was brought back into the team, he bowled well but was wicketless. Amit Mishra bowled a crucial spell and scalped 2 wickets for 35 runs in 4 overs. Nortje was hammered at the end went for 40 in 4 overs without any wicket.

Kagiso Rabada is the best bowler with 7 wickets at an economy of 6.25 and Rishabh Pant is the leading batsman with an aggregate of 93 runs in 3 matches.

Key players: Kagiso Rabada, Rishabh Pant, and Shreyas Iyer.

Delhi Capitals Actual Playing XI:

Anrich Nortje, Shreyas Iyer, Marcus Stoinis, Ravichandran Ashwin, Harshal Patel, Amit Mishra, Prithvi Shaw, Kagiso Rabada, Rishabh Pant, Shikhar Dhawan, Shimron Hetmyer

Kolkata Knight Riders

KKR playing with the same team which they played against SRH were able to produce the same result when they defeated the unbeatable RR. KKR pulled off a clinical performance against RR when they restricted them to a total of 137 for 9 in 20 overs.

Shubhman Gill's repugnant batting is bolstering KKR's confidence. Gill and Narine added their highest 39 runs for the first wicket in this IPL. Gill was all set for a big score but a leading-edge ending his endeavors. Nitish Rana again failed to convert the start he got and got out after scoring an attractive 22 runs off 17 balls. Russell got a chance to bat up the order and scored a quick 24 off 14 deliveries with 3 maximums. Eoin Morgan justified his class again with his crucial 34 runs.

The young pace duo Shivam Mavi and Kamlesh Nagarkotti caught all the eyes when they scalped 2 wickets each in a matter of 3 overs. They got all the big names into their kitty and broke the backbone of RR's batting. Varun Chakravarty is creating some buzz with his spin, bagged 2 wickets and conceded only 25 runs in 4 overs. Pat Cummins proved his worth by scoring important 12 runs and conceding only 13 runs with an early breakthrough.

Shivam Mavi with 4 wickets in 3 matches at an economy of 6.70 and Shubham Gill with 124 runs at an average of 62 in 3 matches are the top performers for KKR.

Key players: Shubhman Gill, Patt Cummins, and Varun Chakravarty

Venue Details

Sharjah International Stadium has become a batsman paradise now, 62 sixes have been hit in just 2 matches. The average innings score is 216 runs, pretty suggestive of the boundary size and easy batting pitch. The first match for both teams at this venue.

Toss Prediction

Small ground, easy batting, no help for spinners and the dew make life difficult for the bowlers. The team winning the toss should look to Bat first here and score as much as possible. 

Winning Prediction

Outstanding bowling attack is what both the teams have in common. Both the teams have shown some good batting but in patches. The batting hasn't performed as a unit for DC, whereas KKR is yet to unleash their batting potential. With the maturity at the top and the firepower at the end, KKR looks formidable.

We predict KKR to bag their third win of the season against DC.
