CSK beat Delhi Capitals by 4 wickets on Sunday in the Qualifier 1, with KKR also beating Delhi on Wednesday by 3 wickets in the Qualifier 2 in Sharjah. The final begins at 19:30 at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium.

Delhi Capitals vs Kolkata Knight Riders IPL T20 Qualifier Match Prediction

Wednesday’s Qualifier 2 brings together Delhi Capitals and Kolkata Knight Riders at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium. Delhi Capitals won the group stage but have lost their last two games against Royal Challengers Bangalore and Chennai Super Kings. KKR finished 4th on net-run-rate but have won their last three games. Read on as we preview this match. The Qualifier 2 begins at 19:30 local time.

Delhi Capitals have very quickly gone from being the all-conquering table-toppers to losing two in a row and a game away from elimination. However, they have match-winners in all departments and beat KKR by 7 wickets in April.

KKR are the momentum team in the tournament and now only two wins away from winning the 2021 IPL. They beat Delhi Capitals in their last meeting in late September and will fancy their chances against anyone.

Mumbai Indians had a poor start to the original 2021 IPL but have recovered to sit in 4th. They will be very motivated to win this fixture.

West Indies vs Pakistan 4th T20 Match Prediction

  • Andre Fletcher hit 14* from 6 balls in the brief bit of play in Sunday’s game. He looked in excellent form and, batting at the top of the order, is a good bet for West Indies’ leading run scorer in this clash. Jason Holder enjoyed the conditions in Guyana on Saturday and is our tip for West Indies’ top wicket taker in this game.
  • Babar Azam is a fine batsman and has only two single figure scores in his last twelve IT20 innings. He is a reliable choice for Pakistan’s leading run scorer in this match. Hassan Ali’s variations are always hard to pick in this format and he has taken wickets in his last five international appearances. He is a strong option for Pakistan’s top wicket taker in this game.
  • Nicholas Pooran looked likely to have been pushed up the order in Sunday’s aborted game. This should give him the opportunity to face more balls with his attacking approach. Mohammad Rizwan will give Pooran a run for his money in the batting and wicket-keeping stakes. We are backing Rizwan to come out as the victor as the top wicket-keeper in this match.

Date -03 Aug 202

Time –20:30 IST / 12:00 GMT

Venue –Providence Stadium – Providence, Guyanaesh

Winner -Pakistan

 

WI vs PAK Match Toss Prediction

West Indies won the toss and chose to bat on Sunday. We think both captains will look to repeat this on Tuesday with Pakistan fielding first.

WI vs PAK Pitch Report

The heavy rain on Sunday may well leave some moisture in the pitch for this game. If so, expect the pace bowlers to really enjoy the surface and a par total to be around 140-150.

Weather Report

There is still some rain in the forecast albeit not quite as strong a probability. High of 28 degrees.

West Indies Predicted Playing 11

Andre Fletcher, Chris Gayle, Shimron Hetmyer, Nicholas Pooran (wk), Andre Russell, Kieron Pollard (c), Romario Shepherd, Jason Holder, Dwayne Bravo, Hayden Walsh, Akeal Hosein

Pakistan Predicted Playing 11

Mohammad Rizwan (wk), Sharjeel Khan, Babar Azam (c), Mohammad Hafeez, Fakhar Zaman, Sohaib Maqsood, Shadab Khan, Mohammad Wasim, Hassan Ali, Shaheen Afridi, Usman Qadir
