About the Match

Kolkata Knights Riders have just been handed their second defeat of IPL 2019 by the Chennai Super Kings. They now head home to play the Delhi Capitals, the only other side to have defeated them this year. That previous match against the Delhi Capitals went to the Super Over and could have gone either way. KKR will be hoping to exact some revenge at their home ground this time around.

The Delhi Capitals managed to end their losing streak against the hapless Royal Challengers Bangalore. Now, however, they must raise their game to try and get past one of the strongest sides of the tournament.

With three wins from six matches, the Delhi Capitals are not too far behind the rest of the group but they must try and win at least five out of their remaining eight matches to have some hope of qualifying. That does not leave them too much margin of error.

Match Preview

Kolkata Knight Riders

Andre Russell continued to have an unbelievable IPL 2019 as he singlehandedly dragged KKR to some sort of a score against CSK. His inning of 50 not out was almost 50 percent of the final total and miles ahead of everyone else. He has more sixes than anyone else in the tournament, has a better strike rate than anyone else, and is one of the highest run-getters in the entire IPL.

The other players in the Kolkata setup have played a few good innings too but without Russell, the side would have struggled to win the number of matches that it did. Chris Lynn, Sunil Narine, Robin Uthappa, and Nitish Rana have all played well in some matches but need to be more consistent going forward.

The Eden Gardens has become an excellent batting pitch and we think the batting might of KKR could be on display. One big worry for the team is going to be the injury scare to Andre Russell. He seemed to have injured his hand against CSK while batting and could miss out playing in this match.

The bowling for KKR has been a concern. Harry Gurney started the IPL well but was ineffective in the previous match. Prasiddh Krishna has not been in the wickets this season and the spinners have not had the kind of success they would have liked either. Sunil Narine, Piyush Chawla, and Kuldeep Yadav are the three bowlers that need to be at their best in the upcoming match to be able to get past the strong Delhi batting lineup.

There is no doubt that the core of the Kolkata team is very strong and they love playing at home. The loss against CSK will not dent their confidence too much but the availability of Andre Russell could have a big impact on the game.

Kolkata Knight Riders Starting Lineup

Joe Denly, RV Uthappa, Nitish Rana, Dinesh Karthik, Shubman Gill, Andre Russell, Carlos Brathwaite, Piyush Chawla, Kuldeep Yadav, Lockie Ferguson, Prasidh Krishna.


Delhi Capitals

The Delhi side has been struggling to find its right balance and get its IPL 2019 campaign back on track. They are also a side that is filled with match winners but has not been able to get the players to perform to their full potential.

The biggest worry that Delhi Capitals would have is the form of Shikhar Dhawan. As a senior player of the side and one of the best white ball batsmen in the world, Dhawan would have hoped to have more impact in IPL 2019 than he has had.

The pitch at Eden Gardens could suit his game and allow him to play freely. Prithvi Shaw is ultra-attacking at the top but often plays too many risky shots and throws away his wicket. Shreyas Iyer is the player that is emerging as the rock in Delhi’s fragile lineup.

We liked the move of sending Colin Ingram up the order in front of Rishab Pant in the previous match and hope that it would continue. Lower order collapses have almost become a certainty for the Delhi team and this is a big worry as well.

Chris Morris has had a horror time with the bat and this uncertainty about the lower order will end up increasing the pressure on the top-order batsmen.

Delhi’s bowling attack could do quite well at the Eden Gardens. Kagiso Rabada, Chris Morris, Sandeep Lamichanne, Ishant Sharma, and Axar Patel form a very strong bowling attack. Rahul Tewatia continues to get a chance in the playing eleven and his bowling has not been too bad but we still think Delhi could find someone else instead of him to bolster their side.

Delhi Capitals are going to be the definite underdogs going into this match but they have the team to cause an upset in Kolkata.

Delhi Capitals Starting Lineup

Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer, RR Pant, Colin Ingram, Chris Morris, Axar Patel, R Tewatia, Keemo Paul, Kagiso Rabada, I Sharma.

Toss Prediction

The team winning the toss is likely to want to field first. Both sides have had success chasing and the conditions are not expected to change drastically over the course of 40 overs either.

Read our guide on toss predictions to learn how we analyze and come up with our tips.

Pitch and Conditions

KKR vs DC IPL 2019 is going to be played at the Eden Gardens, Kolkata. The weather is expected to be clear on match day in Kolkata. Humidity is expected to be quite high, though, and that could mean a tough time for the spinners.

The pitch at Eden Gardens is excellent for batting. It has some pace and bounce in it for the fast bowlers as well. Trent Boult would have some excellent memories at this ground from previous IPL seasons and we would not be surprised to see him get a chance either.

A score of around 180 should be considered as par on this surface.

Dream11 Prediction

The Dream 11 picks for Kolkata Knight Riders vs Delhi Capitals are made assuming that Andre Russell will play and that the pitch will have a decent amount of pace in it.

Wicketkeeper: We had to choose between Dinesh Karthik and Rishab Pant for this spot. Even though Pant has been a bit inconsistent, his potential remains more than Karthik and this is why we have chosen him.

Batsmen: We have picked Prithvi Shaw, Shreyas Iyer, Colin Ingram, Robin Uthappa, and Chris Lynn as our batsmen. All of these are top-order batsmen and like playing on surfaces with a bit of bounce on them. Colin Ingram is one batsman that we are particularly hoping to see make a big contribution because that could help propel the team up the rankings in a hurry.

All-Rounders: There cannot be any side in Dream 11 without Andre Russell considering the form he is in. Russell is a threat everywhere but particularly at the Eden Gardens where he loves playing. Sunil Narine is the other all-rounder in our side. He bowled very well in the previous match and usually opens the batting as well.

Bowlers: We have picked the in-form Kagiso Rabada, Sandeep Lamichhane, and Kuldeep Yadav as our three bowlers. All three bowlers are genuine wicket-takers and bowl at times when the batsmen have to try and attack them.

Captain and Vice Captain: We have picked Chris Lynn as our captain for this match and Colin Ingram as the vice-captain. Actually winning something in Dream 11 is all about getting these picks right and so we are hoping for a run feast in the upcoming match.

KKR vs DC Dream11 Lineup

  • Wicketkeeper:
    • Rishab Pant
  • Batsmen:
    • Chris Lynn (C)
    • Shreyas Iyer
    • Robin Uthappa

Kolkata Knight Riders vs Delhi Capitals Dream11 Prediction

Match Prediction

Kolkata Knight Riders are going to be tested in this match. The Delhi Capitals have a very good bowling attack, one that is better than what KKR has in the pace bowling department for sure. KKR, though, has a very strong batting lineup that has more players in form. They also have Andre Russell in their side.

We advise punters to be sure about Andre Russell’s availability before placing their bets. Back the home team if he is playing.

Back Kolkata Knight Riders to win.
