In high profile Indians Premier League (IPL 2020), Delhi Capitals will clash heads with Kolkata Knight Riders in the second match of a doubleheader Sunday.
Delhi Capitals have won two games and lost one game in this season of IPL. They are ranked at the second position in the points table. They won their first two games against Kings XI Punjab & Chennai Super Kings and lost next game against Sunrisers Hyderabad.
With talented Indian young batsmen and threatening pace attack, they look like a strong side. Their openers Prithvi Shaw and Shikhar Dhawan are inconsistent. Skipper Shreyas Iyer and young sensational batsman Rishabh Pant need to be more consistent to as tournament is progressing. They will be concerned about the fitness of their main spinner Ravi Ashwin who missed two games after a shoulder injury in the first game. Also, they would be pondering about the form of Caribbean batsman Shimron Hetmyer who failed in the first three games. They will be looking forward to back on winning way in this game against Kolkata Knight Riders.
Kolkata Knight Riders
Kolkata are ranked below Delhi Capitals in the points-table as only good net run-rate of Capitals separate them. Kolkata lost their first match in IPL and won next two games against Sunrisers Hyderabad and Rajasthan Royals
Form of Sunil Narine is a big concern for Kolkata as he couldn’t contribute in both departments for the team. As talented English batsman Tom Banton waiting in the wings, time is running out for Narine. Skipper Dinesh Karthik and Nitish Rana also didn’t play any significant part in the first three games. Caribbean allrounder Andre Russell also didn’t play any impactful knock for Kolkata till now. Spinner Kuldeep Yadav seems to have lost the trust of skipper in recent days. He will be eager to bounce back and take some wickets for his team.
Young Opener Shubman Gill and English batsman Eoin Morgan performed well in these games. Speedster Pat Cummins bowled very economically in the last two games and young Indian pacers Shivam Mavi and Kamlesh Nagarkoti are making their mark in IPL. Kolkata Knight Riders will be anticipating to win this match against Delhi Capitals to rise in points-table.
These two teams played each other 10 times in last five years where Kolkata Knight Riders won 6 of them and Delhi Capitals won remaining four games.
Delhi Capitals are more likely to win this match as they are looking in good form.
