After a morale-boosting win over Chennai that saw their big guns return to form, Delhi will hope they can continue the form. They have traditionally done well against Kolkata, especially playing in neutral venues. I am backing Delhi to buck the trend and land Kolkata their first defeat of the season.

  • Kolkata Knight Riders have hit 13.50 sixes per game in their last 2 matches (IPL)
  • Delhi Capitals have won their last 3 matches against Kolkata (IPL)
  • Delhi Capitals won 7 of their last 11 matches against Kolkata in neutral venues (IPL)
  • Prithvi Shaw has 5 scores of 50 or above in 9 matches against Kolkata (IPL) 

Head to Head


Delhi and Kolkata have played each other 32 times in total, including one in the Champions League. They both have 16 wins each.

Last season, it was Delhi who won by four wickets at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi.

Delhi Capitals Form


Delhi have two points from three matches and are in the bottom-five team list. They lost by four wickets to Punjab and by 12 runs to Rajasthan, before bouncing back to defeat Chennai by 20 runs.

David Warner has been the strong force for Delhi with 130 runs in the season at a SR of just above 140. Rishabh Pant is just getting into form, which is good news for the Capitals.

Their bowling seems to be improving too, with Khaleel Ahmed’s five wickets coming at just over seven runs per over.

Delhi Capitals Team News


Kuldeep Yadav missed the last game with a niggle, but should walk into the side if fit. Ishant Sharma could be the one missing out.

Kolkata Knight Riders Form


Kolkata started their season with consecutive wins, defeating the Sunrisers Hyderabad by four runs and Royal Challengers Bengaluru by seven wickets.

Phil Salt has impressed, after coming into the squad as replacement for Jason Roy. There’s still room for improvement as captain Shreyas Iyer is yet to kick his season off.

Another player impressing is Andre Russell, with his all-round contributions (64 runs at a SR of 256 and four wickets) has played a major role in giving that extra push.

Kolkata Knight Riders Team News


Nitish Rana was benched in the last game and his replacement Angkrish Raghuvanshi didn’t get to face a ball. Anukul Roy was used as a spinner in place of Suyash Sharma. Kolkata may stick to both those changes and use the same team.

Verdict

Delhi looked compact at the top and with Pant picking up some pace, they can be a dangerous side. Kolkata have ticked every box, though, and will be confident of their chances here. Yet, I am sticking my neck out and backing Delhi to surprise their neighbours from East India.
