Toss Prediction for KKR vs DC:
The Pitch report for Eden Gardens is that the track is considered as one of the better batting surfaces although spinners tend to come into action as the match wears on. Spinners have enjoyed bowling here in IPL games as well. The team that wins the toss would like bowl first.
If Kkr bats first (predicted score 170-190 ):
Knight Riders will be planning to attack the bowlers as they have players like Uthappa, Narine and Rana at the top, they will be the batsmen KKR will be relied upon to see a keen total in the first ten overs and after that, Gill and Karthik stabilizes the runs in the middle-order and it all depends on Andre Russell’s contribution to the side.
If DC bats first (predicted score 150-180):
The capitals are filled with young and emerging bat holders who are fearless in terms of striking the ball away from the ground. The top 4 batsmen of Dc consisting Dhawan, Iyer, Shaw, and Rishabh Pant are the core of the team’s run-getters. Rishabh Pant will be the X-factor in the team as he can go against any team’s strike bowler. We predict Iyer to score a half-century.

Top 3 Predicted players for KKR:
- Andre Russell: He will all set to take the revenge from Rabada who dismissed him in the super over in their previous encounter. The ground is a batting pitch and he wont leave any chance in the hitting the ball into the stands. If required he can also bowl and take some wickets.
- 2. Chawla: He will bowl in the powerplay and look for those early wickets for the team. His googlies are the most effective and can even get the left handlers out.
- Narine: The most valuable player of the last years IPL season. His role of the hitting the bowl as a opening batsman gets kkr to a good start and a decent run rate. He can also spin the bowl for kkr, however now in the recent game he become too predictable.

Delhi capitals:- Shreyas Iyer leading the side has been great for the side till now. The addition of the experienced Dhawan in the side has got a good opening combination with Prithvi Shaw. Pant and Morris both will need to contribute with big hittings in the innings. With two injuriies of Tewatia and Patel, the team has to still decide on the middle order. The Purple cap owner Rabada is the threat bowler to the side.

1.Rabada: The match winner of their previous encounter and the only bowler to take down the great Andre Russell. However it will be tough this time since their playing at kkrs home ground.
2. Munro: Its very important got the side to make changes in the opening innings of Dc. Gabbar does not seem to perform well along side Prithvi Shaw. Munro could be a good replacement and can give dc a good start.
