DC vs KKR T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips, IPL 2021

Delhi Capitals face Kolkata Knight Riders in Ahmedabad on Thursday evening. Rishabh Pant’s team come into the game after two tight affairs, defeating Sunrisers Hyderabad in a Super Over before losing to Royal Challengers Bangalore by one run two days later. Eoin Morgan’s side responded to four straight defeats by beating Punjab Kings by 5 wickets on Monday. Read on as we preview this clash of the 2021 IPL. The game will get underway at 19:30 local time.

Rishabh Pant’s team began the 2021 IPL with a big win over CSK and looked to be the team to beat but have stuttered a little in their last two games against Sunrisers and RCB. However, there were still positives with unbeaten half-centuries from Pant and Shimron Hetmyer.

KKR has been sluggish but their win over Punjab Kings, coupled with the skipper finding some form, will give them confidence moving forwards. They should also be encouraged that Delhi have already lost to fellow strugglers Rajasthan Royals this season.

DC vs KKR Match Toss Prediction

Pant has kept us guessing in recent games, electing to bat first in Chennai before choosing to insert RCB in Ahmedabad. Eoin Morgan always prefers to chase.

DC vs KKR Prediction

Delhi Capitals Team News & Playing 11

DC Team News

Delhi made one enforced change ahead of their top of the table clash with RCB, Ravi Ashwin replaced by Ishant Sharma. With Ashwin leaving the IPL to spend time with his family and Sharma returning figures of 1-26, we expect Delhi to retain the same XI for this game.

DC Key Players

  • Shikhar Dhawan - scores of 6 and 28 in his last two innings have seen Delhi fail to reach the heights we saw earlier in the campaign. With other players eyeing up the Orange Cap, expect Dhawan to deliver. 
  • Rishabh Pant - the skipper continues to go from strength to strength with the bat during IPL 2021. He will be disappointed that he couldn’t get his side over the line against RCB so KKR should beware.
  • Avesh Khan - 12 wickets at an average of 13.41 has seen the Indian pacer take this IPL by storm. He had taken 5 wickets at 59.8 from 9 IPL games before 2021.

DC Team Form

Delhi will point towards only two defeats from six games in the tournament so far, but it is clear that they have been slowed down somewhat in their last two matches. Have they been found out or will they come back stronger?

Delhi Capitals Predicted Playing 11

Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Rishabh Pant (c) (wk), Steve Smith, Shimron Hetmyer, Marcus Stoinis, Axar Patel, Amit Mishra, Kagiso Rabada, Ishant Sharma, Avesh Khan

Kolkata Knight Riders Team News & Playing 11

KKR Team News

Kolkata kept faith with their XI who had been defeated by Rajasthan Royals two days earlier and were rewarded with the victory against Punjab Kings. It would be a big surprise to see them then make changes after winning with 20 balls remaining. 

KKR Key Players

  • Nitesh Rana - in spite of their poor start to the season, Rana has led the way with the bat and has 186 runs to his name so far. He is also the only KKR player to pass 50 twice in the 2021 IPL.
  • Eoin Morgan - the skipper showed all his experience and his famous cool-head whilst steering KKR to their target against Punjab. A run of form from Morgan would make a big difference for his side.
  • Prasidh Krishna - Three wickets in their last game kept the target very achievable for his side. He now tops the wickets for KKR and will be looking to reduce his average of 25.87

KKR Team Form

One win after four straight defeats certainly doesn’t mean that KKR’s season has been turned around. Overall, their 2021 performances have been poor. 

Kolkata Knight Riders Predicted Playing 11

Shubman Gill, Nitish Rana, Rahul Tripathi, Eoin Morgan (c) , Sunil Narine, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Andre Russell, Pat Cummins, Shivam Mavi, Varun Chakravarthy, Prasidh Krishna

We are backing Kagiso Rabada, Avesh Khan and Amit Mishra to cause the most problems for the KKR batsmen. Rabada has a lot more to give whereas Khan has been a revelation this year.

For KKR we have gone with Varun Chakravarthy, Prasidh Krishna and Shivam Mavi. Eoin Morgan likes to reward loyalty so the key bowlers from last time will certainly get another opportunity.

Delhi Capitals vs Kolkata Knight Riders Prediction

The IPL always throws up excellent match-ups but Skipper Pant v Captain Morgan is particularly fascinating. The young man who never seems to fail in 2021 against the wise head who has seen it all before in white ball cricket. We are backing Pant’s Delhi Capitals to come out on top in a closely fought game. 

Final Verdict

Delhi Capitals are favorites to win against Kolkata Knight Riders at odds of 1.75

DC vs KKR Dream11 Prediction

  • Wicket-keeper

    Dinesh Karthik (8.5) and Rishabh Pant (10) will be our wicket-keepers. Karthik has contributed useful runs and Pant is more often than not the star of the show.

  • Batsmen

    Shikhar Dhawan (10.5), Eoin Morgan (9.0) and Shimron Hetmyer (8.5) are our batsmen. We always back Dhawan but both Morgan and Hetmyer produced in their last outings.

  • All-rounders

    Andre Russell (10) will be our all-rounder. He has shown on enough occasions this season that he still has the skill and appetite for top level competition.

  • Bowlers

    Pat Cummins (9), Amit Mishra (8.5), Prisadh Krishna (8.5), Avesh Khan (8.5) and Varun Chakravarthy (8.5) make up our bowling attack. We think this game could be the one where Pat Cummins gets going.

  • Captain/Vice-captain

    Shikhar Dhawan will be captain, Rishabh Pant his deputy

DC vs KKR Dream11 Team Prediction

  • Batsmen:Shikhar Dhawan (c), Eoin Morgan, Shimron Hetmyer

  • All Rounder:Andre Russell

  • Wicket Keeper:Dinesh Karthik, Rishabh Pant (vc)

  • Bowler:Amit Mishra, Pat Cummins, Prisadh Krishna, Avesh Khan, Varun Chakravarthy

Shubman Gill Might be Out Today, Rahul Tripathi can be promoted at the top

Shubman Gill has not been in the best of forms in IPL 2021. He might be axed and KKR can open with Rahul Tripathi and bring in Sunil Narine at the top of the batting order. Sunil Narine has done well at the top in the past and can be monumental in reviving the KKR's campaign this season.

12:21 pm | 29-04-2021

Dinesh Karthik, Amit Mishra, and Axar Patel approach milestones

KKR wicketkeeper-batsman Dinesh Karthik needs 68 runs to reach 4000 IPL runs. Delhi Capitals spinner Axar Patel will make his 100th IPL appearance and is 87 runs away from 1000 runs in IPL. The DC spinner Amit Mishra will be playing his 100th IPL match for the Delhi franchise and he also needs 5 more wickets to become all time leading wicket-taker in IPL by going past Lasith Malinga's 170 wickets.

10:03 am | 29-04-2021

Delhi Look to Return to Winning Way after loss to RCB

Delhi Capitals will look to come back after a loss by a solitary run against RCB. Shimron Hetmyer and Rishab Pant made 50's but could not take the team across the line. Rishabh Pant played a responsible innings but he needs to be aggressive along with playing responsibly. Shikhar Dhawan could fire at the top after missing out in the game against RCB.
