KOL vs DC Dream11 Match Preview
Kolkata Knight Riders and Delhi Capitals will be against each other in this game of the Indian Premier League 2022.
The Knight Riders are at the top of the points table with 3 wins in 4 matches. They are in excellent form with both bat and the ball. Their top order’s struggle is a big concern for them as Ajinkya Rahane and Shreyas Iyer have failed in being consistent with the bat. Venkatesh Iyer scored 50 in the last game but he was struggling before that as well. KKR will need some runs from their big names at the top. Andre Russell has been their match winner with the bat while Sam Billings too has been in good form. Pat Cummins played one of the best knocks ever in IPL history in the last game and has emerged as an proper all-rounder for the Knights.
KKR bowlers have done a good job till now. Umesh Yadav has been phenomenal with the ball and is the purple cap holder. Sunil Narine and Varun Chakravarhty have kept things very tight in the middle-overs. Pat Cummins returned in the last game and did well with the ball as well. Rasikh Salam played his first game for KKR and was very impressive. Russell can chip in with an over as well. KKR overall are looking good as a side and just need their top order players to score some runs.Watch: Pat Cummins slams 14-ball fifty, including 35 runs in one Daniel Sams over to win KKR v MI IPL 2022 game
Delhi Capitals, meanwhile, have lost their last two games and are at the 7th position with 1 win and 2 defeats in 3 games. They lost their last game after a poor performance from their batters and were defeated by 6 wickets by the Lucknow Super Giants. Delhi saw David Warner and Anrich Norte returning to the XI in the last game but both of them failed to do well. Both are champion players and DC will expect them to come good in this game. Rishabh Pant also has failed to score big in the first 3 games. Prtihvi Shaw has been their best batter so far. DC will need the other batters to contribute as they need to win this game.
Their bowlers have been very consistent with the ball. Mustafizur Rahman, Kuldeep Yadav, Shardul Thakur bowled well in the last game. Axar Patel hasn’t been at his best but he is a good bowler. Anrich Nortje had a forgettable first game but he too will look to come back strongly in this game. Lalit Yadav too did well in the last match. DC bowlers have been doing their job and needs backing from their batters to do well and start winning in the upcoming games.
