Delhi Capitals vs Kolkata Knight Riders Preview


Knight Riders are in seventh place with two wins from five, but just one win less than second-placed Lucknow Super Giants. I fancy Iyer to get among the runs again.

  • Knight Riders’ Venkatesh Iyer (234 runs) is second on the IPL runs list.
  • Knight Riders’ Rinku Singh has three 45-plus scores in his last four innings.
  • Capitals’ David Warner has scored 56, 37, 65 & 51 in his five IPL innings.
  • Capitals’ Manish Pandey has scored 25 & 50 in his last two IPL innings.

Head-to-Head


The Capitals have won three of the last five meetings between the two sides, including both matches last season.

Delhi Capitals Form 


After losing their first four matches in a row, the Capitals then lost to Royal Challengers Bangalore by 23 runs. 

The Capitals bowlers were superb in restricting Royal Challengers to 174/6 off their 20 overs. Kuldeep Yadav (2/23) was the star with the ball.

Delhi’s chase never got off the ground and they found themselves 80/6 in the 13th over, and could only manage 151/9 off their 20 overs. Manish Pandey (50) was the only batter to make it out of the 20s.

Delhi Capitals News


The Capitals desperately need their batters to offer some support to David Warner. 

Kolkata Knight Riders Form


After winning two matches in a row, the Knight Riders lost to Sunrisers and then Mumbai.

Knight Riders posted a healthy 185/6 off their 20 overs. Venkatesh Iyer (104) was the only batter to pass 21.

Mumbai raced to their target in 17.4 overs, with Suyash Sharma (2/27) the only bowler able to keep Mumbai in check.

Kolkata Knight Riders News


Knight Riders have not reported any injuries in their squad.

Verdict

I am backing Kolkata Knight Riders to win. I am also backing Venkatesh Iyer to top score for Kolkata Knight Riders.

David Warner is a good bet to top score for Delhi Capitals.
