DC vs KKR: Match Preview
DC got defeated by Rajasthan Royals in their last game. Jos Buttler scored a century. The bottom four sides include the capitals. There have been two many changes in the squad. The form for the key players is out of their form that has worked against their teams. Delhi had a good win over Punjab Kings but couldn’t win against Rajasthan which has a very well balanced team. It’s a do or a die situation for them against KKR.
Kolkata Knight Riders
Kolkata has now four matches on their plate. The team struggled with both bat and ball. KKR against Gujarat Titans choked under pressure. The side has been worse with both bat and ball in the games that they have played so far. They are yet to find the right playing XI to play a perfect game. KKR have to win all their remaining six games if they desire to be a part of the race.
DC vs KKR: Match Prediction
