Kolkata Knight Riders are sure to have a tough call as the pressure keeps gushing in from the teams below in the Indian premier league. Right now, the team is positioned at number 4 in the league standings. However, the Delhi Capitals‘ defeat will provide the Sunrisers Hyderabad and Kings XI Punjab a brimming opportunity to dislodge them from the top four.
With the commencement of IPL No. 42, KKR is to be in a faceoff with DC that is positioned at no. 2 right now. After the Shreyas Iyer-led side faced defeat from Kings XI Punjab in the last match, they also seem to be coming back. Now, they are likely to enjoy coming to the 8th win of the campaign. This will help them to return to the top of the league table. As a result, it could be a potential game-changer for everyone.
Delhi comes to the contest and showcases a higher chance to win this time in the IPL 2021. Meanwhile, Ricky Ponting-side is not doing any great in the campaign. However, they are following Kolkata Knight Riders, who lost their last match to Royal Challengers Bangalore. This happened only by eight wickets after only putting 84runs on the board in nearly 20 overs.
This time, Coach Brendon McCullum is expecting his KKR team to perform well. He expects them to put up an excellent show and win this battle for survival without any hindrance. The last time was a brutal defeat, but this time he is adamant about making them win. However, lack of firepower has turned out to be quite a concern for the KKR team. The top scorer is Shubham Gill, but he hasn’t scored enough. The strike rate is 111.82. Also, we have observed Rahul Tripathi struggling for consistency, while Nitish Rana‘s disappointing performance has stunned all of us.
The KKR VS DC Match looks like a tough call for KKR as usual. However, Sunil Narine and Andre Russel are expected to be seen in the XI after both Windies Stalwarts missed out on a place in this one for the first time since 2021.
KKR has a slight 13-11 advantage over Delhi Capitals in nearly 24 matches, considering the head-to-head stats. We saw that the Delhi team had defeated KKR with almost 18 runs in a high-scoring game in the previous round. Sharjah played this one.
According to the IPL 2021 match prediction, we are aiming at Delhi to win the game. On the other hand, KKR is likely to suffer against this strong team. So, you can expect DC to show up with a stellar performance like never before.
Both teams have been working hard to win the cricket battle over each other. But who is more likely to win, we have already predicted. Let us see how Kolkata Knight Riders attempt to survive the fatal blow from the Delhi Capital end. However, you can expect excellent performance in no time.
