Kolkata Knight Riders

After the shameful loss against Royal Challengers Bangalore in the last match, the morale of the Kolkata team is down. They need to up their game for the remaining IPL games as they need to win all remaining games in this season to qualify for the playoff. Kiwi pacer Lockie Ferguson bowled fearsome overs in the last two games. He will be now the leader of the pace attack in the Kolkata Knight Riders team.
Nitish Rana can be removed from the team after a horrible last game. Without Andre Russell and Sunil Narine, the Kolkata team looks toothless in the last match.

Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant are the backbones of Delhi Capitals batting line-up. Proteas speedsters Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Norje are their main weapon in the bowling lineup.
Shimron Hetmyer yet to make an impact in this season of IPL. They need only one win to qualify for playoffs. They would hope to defeat Kolkata Knight Riders to book a spot in the playoffs.
