The IPL tournament which can also be called a Vacation plan for everyone brings you the big match between Kolkata Knight Riders and their arch-rivals Delhi Capitals which is going to be played at the most old ground of India the EdenGardens.
Today’s match prediction is as followed:-
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.
Kkr:- There is no confirmation of Chris Lynn to play, so we predict Narine to open with Robin Utthapa, Knight Riders will use their regular spinners Piyush Chawla and chinamen Kuldeep Yadav as they can turn on the pitch to get some important wickets of the set batsmen in the middle overs. Kamlesh Nagarkoti will be expected to open the attack and also Hary Gurney and Lockie Ferguson can be considered the key strike bowlers along with the world experience in their bag.
Kkr predicted playing XI:- Narine, Uthappa, Rana, Gill, Karthik, Russell, Braithwaite, Chawla, Nagarkoti, Kuldeep, Gurney.
Dc:- The team will have a question of who will lead the team? It can be Dhawan or maybe Shreyas Iyer will continue with the captainship. The bowling department of Delhi Capitals looks interesting with many overseas options like Boult, Rabada, Lamicchane, Keemo Paul with also Indian bowlers like Ishant Sharma, Bandaru Ayyappa and Avesh Khan with spin leading Amit Mishra with the back of Rahul Tewatia. It will be very difficult for the selectors to make a playing XI.
Dc predicted playing XI:- Dhawan, Iyer, Shaw, Pant, Karla, Morris, Harshal Patel, Mishra, Boult, Rabada, Lamicchane.
Key Player Battles:-
Shaw vs Rana
The battle will be between the Mumbai-born youngster and the Delhi born youngster Nitish Rana who will be playing against his home city-based franchise Delhi Capitals and also will be familiar with the conditions of Feroz Shah Kotla as he has played his local tournaments majorly at this ground (Kotla). Shaw who never fails to boost truckload of runs from his bat can be heavy on the Knight Riders bowlers. Rana will manage the middle order innings for his team and bats at the strike rate of 129.77.
