Delhi Capitals v Kolkata Knight Riders – Match Preview

The Delhi Capitals have won all of their last three head-to-head encounters with the Kolkata Knight Riders.

That’s quite surprising, as Delhi have never won the IPL and the Knight Riders have taken the title twice.

Regardless, Delhi are offered as the favourites here to beat the two-time champions.

Where: Sharjah Cricket Stadium

When: Saturday, 3 October 2020

Start time: 19:30 IST (14:00 GMT)

Pitch conditions: It’s not so much about the pitch conditions here, than the small size of the boundaries. Sharjah has already produced four 200-plus totals this IPL season. It’s a good stadium to chase rather than set a total, so the captain who wins the toss will probably bowl first.

Weather conditions: The forecast suggests a bit of rain around in Sharjah on Saturday. But it probably won’t be enough to reduce the overs, if at all. If the game does get shortened, which it probably won’t, this could favour the team chasing an adjusted total.

Delhi Capitals v Kolkata Knight Riders – Team News

Capitals spinner Ravichandran Ashwin has said he will be on the field “very soon” after recovering from a shoulder injury, but probably not for this match.

Seam-wise, they have the tournament’s form bowler in Kagiso Rabada, who might open the bowling with Ishant Sharma again.

And then there’s their power-packed batting department, primed to take advantage of this small stadium.

Seamers Kamlesh Nagarkoti and Shivam Mavi can again show that Kolkata are not just about the performances of Pat Cummins. Local talent, indeed, can outdo star players from overseas.

Let’s see if the Knight Riders afford Shubman Gill and orthodox opening partner or a pinch-hitter in Sunil Narine again.

Delhi Capitals v Kolkata Knight Riders – Betting Tips and Prediction

Here are some key online betting tips for the IPL that can help you with your predictions. They are based on the best odds and our experience of the tournament over the years.

Bet on Russell to Hit the Most Sixes

Andre Russell is one of the biggest hitters in world cricket. Kolkata will likely bat him up the order again, too.

This stadium has much smaller dimensions than in Abu Dhabi in Dubai. It all points quite well to Russell hitting the most sixes in this match. 1xBet have him well priced at 4.32 to do so.

Select Sharma to Be the Top Bowler for Delhi

Ishant Sharma has eventually made it into the Delhi XI for this IPL. He didn’t take a wicket against the Sunrisers and seemed a bit rusty.

Regardless, that experience will stand him in solid stead for this second turn. If you are looking to bet outside of Rabada, Sharma is a good pick at 5.0 with 10CRIC to be the top bowler for the Capitals.

Place a Bet on the Top Batsman Score to Be 70 or More

We’re not saying this is a sure thing, but it’s possible the highest score by a batsman in this match will be more than 69.5, which Parimatch have offered at 1.85.

The small boundaries square of the wicket and down the ground suit this bet entirely. Remember, this stadium has already seen four team totals of 200 or more.
