With two wins apiece so far, Delhi Capitals and Kolkata Knight Riders meet in the 2020 Indian Premier League. The match takes place at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium on October 3 and is scheduled to start at 19:30 local time.
Delhi started with a super-over win against Kings XI Punjab and then followed that up with a more convincing win against Chennai Super Kings. With Kagiso Rabada in good bowling form, they were then set 163 to beat Sunrisers Hyderabad last time out, but could only reach 147/7.
Kolkata Knight Riders, on the other hand, started with a heavy defeat to Mumbai Indians but have since bounced back. Shubman Gill hit 70* in a seven-wicket win against Sunrisers Hyderabad before he again top-scored with 47 in a 37-run victory against Rajasthan Royals last time out.

Winner- Kolkata Knight Riders
DC vs KKR Toss Prediction
Delhi won the toss and fielded first last time out and, while it remains the popular option, it is perhaps not always as successful as it has been.
The temperature barely drops through the evening Sharjah – it will be another hot and clear evening.
The mass of runs in the last game at Sharjah shows just how much the pitch and ground encourages big hitting.
