These two have undoubtedly been the best sides in the league, staying neck-to-neck on the standings. So far, both have won two games whilst succumbing to defeat in the other. You won’t see many games bigger than this in the Indian Premier League!
Provided results elsewhere go in their favour, winners of this fixture will go top of the log. Such an important match in the race for the title, neither side can afford to lose. Hence, brace yourselves for a nerve-cracking game in Sharjah.
Unfortunately, their winning streak was brought to a halt on the last matchday, as they lost to Sunrisers Hyderabad. Though they were set to hit 163, they could only manage 147/7. Despite that loss, you can have nothing but praise for DC’s bowling attack.
Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje have been in inspiring form, picking up wickets in early overs, also at death. Ishant Sharma has added a new dimension to their bowling strategy. Taking into account that KKR have a lot of left-handed players, Capitals may favor Marcus Stonis ahead of Axar Patel.
The player also put in a strong performance versus Rajasthan Royals last time out, top-scoring with 47 in a 37-run win. Gill will definitely be crucial in this tie. Coach Brendon McCullum will also be counting on Andre Russell whose bowling abilities are admirable, sporting numbers 1-17 and 1-16 so far.
Also, in his last game, on the way to 24 from 14 balls, he let loose with the bat. Pat Cummins was on a roll against RR, taking 1-13 from three overs, and dismissing Steve Smith to begin the game brightly.
This one should go right down to the wire. But the sheer six-hitting exploits of the likes of Andre Russell and Eoin Morgan just tip the scale slightly in favor of KKR.
