Today Delhi Capitals will play against Kolkata Knight Riders at Wankhede Stadium. The Rishabh Pant side face-off a tough loss against the Rajasthan Royals in their last encounter and their matches so far have been on and off. Currently, Delhi is at the seventh position in the points table with three wins in seven games.
On the contrary, the Kolkata Knight Riders have been continuously on a losing streak in the last four games and they will enter the crease in desperation for a win in the forthcoming games. The Shreyas Iyer-led team has struggled to put out their best performance and the top order has not been able to process good opening stands which have been a problem for a long time. Ajinkya Rahane might get another chance with Venkatesh Iyer fighting to get runs.
The match will be Live Stream on Star Sports Network for Television and Disney + Hotstar app. According to the Pitch Report, Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai has been creating a lot of high-scoring fixtures in the last few matches and the same could be awaited again for this match. Because of the short boundaries in place and taking into consideration the dew factor, the captain that wins the toss will look forward to bowling first on the wicket.
The probable best batter of the Match will be Shreyas Iyer who has been the top scorer for the Kolkata Knight Riders this season but he has lacked continuity sometimes, which is raising concern for KKR.In the previous game, the right-hander banished 15 balls and 12 wickets. He has capacity to play match-winning innings if he can stay longer at the crease.
The Probable best bowler of the Match can be Tim Southe, who came into the playing at the expense of Pat Cummins in the previous game and he was banished immediately, with a three-wicket haul. The New Zealand pacer had played two games until Cummins made an appearance on the scene and he has taken eight wickets already in three games this season.
