Kolkata Knight Riders vs Delhi Capitals Preview

KKR have had a magnificent start to their Indian T20 League 2022. They sit comfortably at the top, with three wins in four games. While the batters have been inconsistent, the bowlers have done a great job.

Meanwhile, Delhi won their first game against Mumbai but lost to Gujarat and Lucknow in the next two matches. They were let down by the batters in both their losses.

Kolkata Knight Riders

Ajinkya Rahane has not fired yet and the team may want to try Rinku Singh at the top. However, we feel they will give Rahane one more chance.

Top Order

Ajinkya Rahane and Venkatesh Iyer will open the innings. This might the final opportunity for Rahane to cement his place. Iyer scored a 50 in the last game and will be high on confidence. Shreyas Iyer will play at three and will be responsible for holding the innings together.

Middle Order

Nitish Rana and Sam Billings will take charge of the middle order. Both these players have failed to perform which has barred KKR from posting a huge score.


Andre Russell and Sunil Narine will be the all-rounders. Russell can tear away a bowling attack in the final overs, while Narine's four overs will be crucial.


Pat Cummins, Umesh Yadav, Varun Chakravarthy and Rasikh Salam will comprise the bowling attack. Umesh Yadav has been spitting venom with the new ball, while Pat Cummins is one of the best in business. Chakravarthy is also very difficult to score off. Salam, meanwhile, will look to compliment the other bowlers.

KKR Key Batters

  • Shreyas Iyer - He is the best batter of the side and the team needs him to get a big one in the next match.
  • Venkatesh Iyer - Iyer was the star for KKR last season and scored a 50 in the last game as well. He will be keen to have another good knock under his belt.
  • Nitish Rana - Rana has been poor this season but he is a quality batter and can win a game on his day.

KKR Top Batsman Stats

Batter Matches Runs Average Strike Rate 50/100
Venkatesh Iyer 14 449 37.42 122.68 5/0
Shreyas Iyer 91 2444 31.33 124.31 16/0
Nitish Rana 81 1405 26.94 132.31 13/1

KKR Key Bowlers

  • Umesh Yadav - Umesh Yadav has been sensational so far in the tournament and has given KKR good starts in all games. A similar performance will be expected of him in the next game.
  • Pat Cummins - Cummins won the Man of The Match award in the last game after a record 50. However, his main strength is bowling and he will be keen to have a better performance with the ball against DC
  • Varun Chakravarthy - Varun is a mystery spinner and is not easy to score off. He allows other bowlers to pick wickets as batters are looking to score off them with Chakravarthy putting a lot of pressure on them

KKR Top Bowler Stats

Bowlers Matches Wickets Average Economy Best Figures
Umesh Yadav 125 128 28.62 8.39 4-23

KKR Probable Playing 11

Ajinkya Rahane, Venkatesh Iyer, Shreyas Iyer (c), Sam Billings (wk), Nitish Rana, Andre Russell, Sunil Narine, Pat Cummins, Umesh Yadav, Rasikh Salam, Varun Chakaravarthy

Delhi Capitals

Rovman Powell has been ordinary thus Delhi might bring in Mitchell Marsh into the playing XI now since he is available.

Top Order

Prithvi Shaw and David Warner form an explosive pair at the top. Both can be brutal on the bowlers and give Delhi a blazing start. Mitchell Marsh should come at three. He will be eyeing a solid start to the campaign.

Middle Order

Rishabh Pant, Lalit Yadav and Sarfaraz Khan will form a potent middle order. Pant and Sarfaraz had a good game against LSG, while Lalit Yadav has also been good. However, all these players can be inconsistent.


Axar Patel and Shardul Thakur will be the all-rounders. Both will add a lot of depth to the side. Both can win matches with the bat as well as the ball.


Kuldeep Yadav, Mustafizur Rahman and Anrich Nortje will be the three specialist bowlers. Fizz and Kuldeep have bowled really well in the tournament. Nortje had a bad start to the IPL campaign but he should bounce back well,

DC Key Batters

  • Prithvi Shaw - Shaw scored a blazing 50 in the last game against LSG and made batting look easy on a tough wicket. He will compliment Warner to perfection and will give the southpaw some time to settle.
  • David Warner - Warner had a poor outing in the last game and will be keen to do well in the next match. We all are aware of his prowess as he is one of the most successful batters in the tournament.
  • Rishabh Pant - The skipper played a good hand against LSG but looked scratchy. However, with runs behind him, he should bat better in the next match.

DC Top Batsman Stats

Batter Matches Runs Average Strike Rate 50/100
Prithvi Shaw 56 1414 25.25 147.75 11/0
David Warner 151 5453 41.31 139.64 50/4
Rishabh Pant 87 2581 35.36 146.56 15/1

Mustafizur Rahman 40 41 28.54 7.75 3/16
Anrich Nortje 25 34 21.59 7.84 3/33
Kuldeep Yadav 48 46 28.63 8.18 4/20

DC Key bowlers

  • Anrich Nortje - Nortje had a horrible start to IPL 2022 and was taken off the attack after bowling two waist-high full tosses. He will look to bounce back stronger.
  • Muatafizur Rahman - Rahman has been brilliant with his variations in the tournament and will be a difficult bowler to score off.
  • Kuldeep Yadav - Yadav has revived himself in the tournament with some brilliant spells. He will be the biggest trump card for Delhi and Pant.

DC Probable Playing 11

Prithvi Shaw, David Warner, Mitchell Marsh, Rishabh Pant (c & wk), Sarfaraz Khan, Lalit Yadav, Axar Patel, Shardul Thakur, Kuldeep Yadav, Mustafizur Rahman, Anrich Nortje
