There are three teams who have never laid their hands on the IPL trophy, and Delhi Capitals are one of such. However, they are on the right path to finally breaking that jinx this season. Already on top of the log, DC will need another win against KKR to keep the momentum going.
They won’t feel too disheartened by the result given the stature of opposition they were up against. But KKR will need to up the ante this weekend, as they are taking on a much stronger team in DC. Shubman Gill and Eoin Morgan have been the cream of the crop for KKR, scoring the most runs this term.
In the previous match, the bowlers had the herculean task of defending a massive 85 runs but couldn’t manage that feat. Adding Lockie Ferguson to the bowling unit has worked wonders for KKR as he has quickly formed a decent partnership with Pat Cummins, Andre Russell and Shivam Mavi in the team.
Their batting has been horrendous recently, with the batsmen hitting a few stumbling blocks. Shikhar Dhawan has been DC’s only bright spark in that unit lately. He managed a whopping 106 runs off 61 balls last time out, whilst the remaining batsmen scooped a combined 54 runs between themselves.
Anrich Nortje and Kagiso Radada are resilient, and can cause the opposition some problems. It has come up for debate on numerous occasions that DC have the best spinners in their ranks – Ravi Ashwin and Axar Patel picking up eight wickets each this season.
Also having their fair share of struggles, DC’s batting lineup are in a rut. Nonetheless, their superior bowling attack should see them come out tops here. Count on Delhi Capitals to win this match.
