Pre Match Analysis

Kolkata Knight Riders have played 4 matches till now and have won 3 of them and are sitting comfortably in the top four of the points table. Every match they have a new hero like Pat Cummins who won them the last match against Mumbai and earlier Andre Russell was the hero for them. On the other hand, Delhi Capitals have played just 3 matches and have won only 1 out of them. They lost some close matches but now will be looking to get back to winning ways.

Kolkata Knight Riders have got a squad that is capable of winning the tournament. However, Venkatesh Iyer and Ajinkya Rahane haven’t done much at the top. Thus the pressure always gets to the middle order. Shreyas Iyer has performed consistently and Andre Russell along with Pat Cummins and Nitish Rana will be looking to contribute well. In the bowling department, Sunil Narine and Varun Chakravarthy are the key players for them in this match as Rishabh Pant struggles against the leg spinners.

But for Delhi capitals, the advantage will be the inclusion of the pocket dynamite David Warner who can give good starts with Prithvi Shaw. Apart from it, Rishabh Pant and Lalit Yadav are in fine touch with Axar Patel as they have finished a number of games for them. However, their bowling department looks a bit weak as apart from Khaleel Ahmed and Kuldeep Yadav, no one has been at their best. Thus, Delhi Capitals need a good performance from Anrich Nortje who is a premier bowler for them.

Final Thoughts
