Kolkata Knight Riders will take on Delhi Capitals in the 42nd match of the Indian Premier League. The match will be played on the Sheikh zayed Cricket Stadium and is scheduled to begin at 2 PM local time
IPL 2020 has been a dream come true for Delhi Capitals. 7 wins, 3 losses, what more can they’ve expected at the start of the tournament. It’s not that someone has gifted them this position, they richly deserve this after the brand of cricket they’ve played of late. Yes, they lost their previous match to Punjab, but there are a lot of positives for them to take from that game. Shikhar Dhawan, with two back to back hundreds is roaring like a wild lion. Kagiso Rabada is at the prime of his form. Ravichandran Ashwin and Axar Patel has done well to restrict the opposition. Overall, they must be pretty satisfied how things have been going in last few games. However, there is enough scope for them to improve as a team, especially in the batting department. Prithvi Shaw hasn’t got gong at all and other players like Rishabh Pant, Shimron Heymyer and Shreyas Iyer hasn’t been that consistent. Things cannot be taken for granted and DC needs to rectify their flaws as soon as possible.

Venue-Sheikh Zayed Stadium – Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates
Winner- Delhi Capitals
KKR vs DC Toss Prediction
Toss will be crucial for the teams as the pitch at Abu Dhabi has been very difficult to bat in the second innings. Winning the toss and batting first is the most feasible option. However, with dew around, captains has a difficult choice to make.
The weather as usual will be dry and humid.
The pitches in all the three venues are getting slower with each game. Batting second on that pitch can turn out to be a suicidal decision. But again, if there is dew, bowling second will also not be easy. Overall, captains have a dicey call to make
