Betting Tips
  • Shikhar Dhawan has hit 551 runs in the tournament so far. The opener is our recommendation for Delhi Capitals’ highest run scorer. With the ball, Tom Curran took 3-29 against CSK and is a strong choice for Delhi Capitals’ top wicket taker against KKR.
  • Shubman Gill followed up his successive half-centuries by top scoring with 29 from 18 balls in the win over RCB on Monday. He is our tip for KKR’s leading run scorer in this game. Sunil Narine was at times unplayable for the RCB batters and finished with figures of 4-21 in Sharjah. On the same pitch, we are backing Narine to be KKR’s top wicket taker against Delhi Capitals.
  • If Sunil Narine can put in a similar performance as on Monday when he hit 26 from 15 and took 4 wickets then he will go a long way to winning the game for KKR. He is our prediction for the Player of The Match Award in this Qualifier 2.

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

Wednesday’s Qualifier 2 brings together Delhi Capitals and Kolkata Knight Riders at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium. Delhi Capitals won the group stage but have lost their last two games against Royal Challengers Bangalore and Chennai Super Kings. KKR finished 4th on net-run-rate but have won their last three games. Read on as we preview this match. The Qualifier 2 begins at 19:30 local time.

Delhi Capitals have very quickly gone from being the all-conquering table-toppers to losing two in a row and a game away from elimination. However, they have match-winners in all departments and beat KKR by 7 wickets in April.

KKR are the momentum team in the tournament and now only two wins away from winning the 2021 IPL. They beat Delhi Capitals in their last meeting in late September and will fancy their chances against anyone.

Delhi Capitals Team News & Playing 11

DC Team News

Rishabh Pant’s team made one change ahead of the Qualifier 1 defeat to CSK on Sunday with middle-order batsman Ripal Patel replaced by England’s bowling all-rounder Tom Curran. The Englishman, in only this third game of the tournament, took crucial wickets. He has certainly done enough to retain his place in the XI.

DC Key Players

  • Shikhar Dhawan - The consistent opener had a rare off day making only 7 from 7 balls on Sunday. He is 75 runs behind KL Rahul at the top of the run scorers list.
  • Rishabh Pant - The effervescent captain made an unbeaten 51 from 35 balls in Sunday’s defeat. He has now hit 15 half-centuries in the IPL.
  • Tom Curran - It has been quite a week for Curran who has replaced his brother in the England T20 World Cup squad before taking 3-29 on his return to the Delhi Capitals side.

DC Team Form

The wins have not materialised in the last two games but Delhi Capitals have not been far away with plenty of individuals putting in strong performances.

Delhi Capitals Predicted Playing 11

Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant (c) (wk), Shimron Hetmyer, Axar Patel, Ravichandran Ashwin, Kagiso Rabada, Tom Curran, Avesh Khan, Anrich Nortje

  • Lockie Ferguson - The New Zealand pace bowler continues to pick up wickets in every game he plays in the UAE. He took 2-30 on a pitch which favoured slow bowlers on Monday.
  • Sunil Narine - The bowling all-rounder put in a near perfect performance with the ball in Monday’s Eliminator. Narine took the wickets of numbers 2, 3, 4 and 5 in the batting RCB order.

KKR Team Form

If you are looking for a form team then KKR’s record of three successive wins and four from the last five is very impressive.
