Kolkata Knight Riders v Delhi Capitals – Team News

Andre Russell could be missing for the Knight Riders due to ongoing injury issues.

They again reverted to Rahul Tripathi to open alongside Shubman Gill against SRH and will again need to decide if to go with him or Tom Banton.

They have also brought New Zealand’s Tim Seifert into the squad in place of injured bowler Ali Khan.

In the bowling department, Lockie Ferguson will be hoping to build on his recent showings. Chris Green is another option if they can get him and Kuldeep Yadav in the side.

However, KKR also need to decide when to throw Sunil Narine back into the spotlight after he was picked up for a suspect action on October 10. He has struggled with injury since then but could be nearing fitness now.

Delhi will want much more support for in-form opener Shikhar Dhawan. He became the first man to hit back-to-back tons in the IPL but needs more around him.

Prithvi Shaw is struggling a little but having Rishabh Pant back from injury is a big boost for the Capitals. Rahane made way for him as skipper Shreyas Iyer moved to three.

They may also look to get Anrich Nortje back in the bowling attack for this one.

Kolkata Knight Riders v Delhi Capitals – Betting Tips and Prediction

This should go the way of Delhi but much will come down to how they react to their latest defeat.

Kolkata will provide a stern test, especially under the new captaincy of Eoin Morgan. However, Delhi’s recent record against KKR proves they have it in their locker to come out on top once more.

As ever, there is value to be found in all the other markets that are on offer for this fixture.

Back Rabada to be Delhi’s Top Bowler

Kagiso Rabada has been superb since the start of IPL 2020.

He took another two wickets in the defeat to KXIP in the previous outing and can be the man to shine for DC in this one.

His main danger will likely come from Anrich Nortje but he didn’t play in the last fixture and Rabada will start as long as he’s fit.

His price of 2.5 with 22Bet seems fair and looks a good bet considering he seems so far ahead of the other bowlers for the Capitals. It could be worth waiting until the teams are named and also considering an IPL live bet on Nortje if he is included.

Morgan the Value Pick for KKR

Eoin Morgan has been getting starts for Kolkata without going on to make a big score. He has 39 and 34 in his last two fixtures, which hints that he may be ready to kick on.

He would certainly be the value selection in the top Kolkata batsman market. His price of 5.0 with 22Bet looks far too big.

A plus point for this bet would also be the fact he shifted up the order in the last game ahead of previous skipper Dinesh Karthik.

Dhawan and Rabada Double

Given the dominance of Dhawan and Rabada for DC, it could be worth backing them both to shine together again.

22Bet are offering 7.00 for the double for Dhawan being DC’s top batsman and Rabada being their top bowler.

Both are standout performers in their respective fields and it would be no surprise to see them leading the way again.

It’s a longshot bet but one that looks appealing if recent form is anything to go by.
