Venue – Sharjah Cricket Stadium, Sharjah

DC VS KKR Match Preview:

It will be a battle of the equals as Delhi Capitals face Kolkata Knight Riders. Both the teams have played a similar type of cricket this season. Delhi won its first two games and lost the previous game while Kolkata started their campaign with a loss but won their next two matches. 

Delhi Capitals looked down and out in their last game against SRH especially while batting. The batsmen were not able to score freely on a tough batting track. All eyes will be on Rishab Pant who has not been able to make an impression this season with the bat. 

Delhi's bowling unit is well balanced and has variety. The Inclusion of Ishant Sharma in the line up has up their experience level on the field. It will be interesting to see if the team management clears R Ashwin to play in this game. 

Kolkata Knight Riders have found a solid opening batsman in Shubman Gill. Eoin Morgan has played some brilliant cameos and it is just a matter of time that he scores a big one. Andre Russell got a good start to his innings but couldn't convert it, he will be the key player for KKR. 

Young Shivam Mavi and Kamlesh Nagarkoti have performed well under pressure. Dinesh Karthik has used them intelligently through the innings, they could prove to be the game-changer once again for the team. 

Both teams are unlikely to make any changes to the team for this match. The battle of the two equals at a ground like Sharjah will be a story to tell.
