DC vs KKR Prediction & Betting Tips, IPL 2020

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.

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.

Weather Report

The temperature barely drops through the evening Sharjah – it will be another hot and clear evening.

Pitch Condition

The mass of runs in the last game at Sharjah shows just how much the pitch and ground encourages big hitting.

Delhi Capitals Team News & Playing 11

DC Team News

Without Ravichandran Ashwin since the shoulder injury he suffered in the first game, Delhi Capitals could stick with a similar side to the one beaten by Sunrisers last time out. Too many players fell short, where previously their individual form had been good.

DC Key Players

  • Shikhar Dhawan: Hit 35 and 34 in his last two innings as he looks to get back to his big-hitting best at the top of the order.
  • Kagiso Rabada: Leading the Delhi bowling so far with some excellent returns, taking 2-28, 3-26 and most recently 2-21 on his way to seven wickets so far.
  • Prithvi Shaw: The star of their most recent win, that innings showcased what he can do at the top of the order. 

DC Team Form

A thrilling tie with Kings XI Punjab, after holding their nerve in the final two balls, ended with a Delhi win in the super-over. They then comfortably saw off Chennai Super Kings after more good bowling from Kagiso Rabada and Prithvi Shaw’s excellent half-century. Last time out, Delhi – chasing 163 to win – could only reach 147/7.

Delhi Capitals Predicted Playing 11

Shikhar Dhawan, Prithvi Shaw, Shreyas Iyer (c), Shimron Hetmyer, Rishabh Pant (wk), Marcus Stoinis, Axar Patel, Anrich Nortje, Kagiso Rabada, Amit Mishra, Ishant Sharma

Kolkata Knight Riders Team News & Playing 11

KKR Team News

After a second consecutive win last time out, Kolkata Knight Riders could be unchanged again this time out. They may move Eoin Morgan up the order, however.

KKR Key Players

  • Shubman Gill: Leading the way with the bat so far in IPL 2020, with scores of 70* and 47 in his last two innings to help KKR to two wins.
  • Andre Russell: Bowled well in the first two games, returning figures of 1-17 and 1-16 and, last time out, he let loose with the bat on his way to 24 from 14 balls.
  • Pat Cummins: The Aussie quick took 1-13 from three overs last time out, dismissing international team-mate Steve Smith to set the tone early on.

KKR Team Form

Kolkata Knight Riders started with a heavy defeat to Mumbai Indians but they have bounced back well. Shubman Gill has top-scored in each of their last two games as they chased 143 to beat Sunrisers Hyderabad and then hit 174/6 on their way to a 37-run defeat of Rajasthan Royals.

Kolkata Knight Riders Predicted Playing 11

Shubman Gill, Sunil Narine, Nitish Rana, Andre Russell, Dinesh Karthik (c, wk), Eoin Morgan, Pat Cummins, Kamlesh Nagarkoti, Shivam Mavi, Kuldeep Yadav, Varun Chakravarthy

DC vs KKR Dream11 Prediction

  • Wicket-keeper(s)

    Rishabh Pant started to fire last time out and with 160 points to his name already, he looks good value at 9.5 credits. 

  • Batsmen

    Shikhar Dhawan is ten credits but he has laid a platform to kick on from at the top of the order. Eoin Morgan is nine credits and also started to fire last time out. Shubman Gill has been more consistent with the bat, leading the way in the last two wins, while Prithvi Shaw is 8.5 credits.

  • All-rounder(s)

    Marcus Stoinis is 8.5 credits and the Aussie all-rounder – after some Big Bash form at the start of the year too – is a key player for Delhi. Andre Russell is the box-office star for Kolkata, meanwhile.

  • Bowlers

    Kagiso Rabada is 9.5 credits and has racked up 231 points so far thanks to his seven wickets. Pat Cummins is the key bowler for Kolkata, meanwhile and – even though they cost 18.5 credits between them – they are both worth picking. Kuldeep Yadav is 8.5 credits, meanwhile, and – though he has not showed it so far – is a key bowler for the Knight Riders. Shivam Mavi is eight credits but has showed well so far with two good performances in the first three games.

  • Captain/vice-captain

    Andre Russell could be key with bat and ball and is worth backing even if he has not been totally explosive so far. He is worth backing as captain. Kagiso Rabada is in fine bowling form and has seven wickets so far. He could be a good vice-captain.

DC vs KKR Dream11 Team Prediction

  • Batsmen:Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Eoin Morgan, Shubman Gill

  • All Rounder:Andre Russell (c), Marcus Stoinis

  • Wicket Keeper:Rishabh Pant

  • Bowler:Kagiso Rabada (vc), Pat Cummins, Kuldeep Yadav, Shivam Mavi
