Delhi Capitals (DC) will face Kolkata Knight Riders(KKR) in Ahmedabad today in the Indian Premier League (IPL). DC has lost their last match by 1 run, but KKR have returned in the path of victory.

DC are currently at the third position in the points table. They have 8 points from 6 outings. They will be looking to fight back against KKR today. They will target the KKR top order with their fast bowling attack.

On paper KKR are the underdogs today. They are in fifth place with only 4 points. The team have won their last match quite easily. The momentum is with them. They will be looking to beat DC and climb up in the points table.

Inside DC:

In the last match, Shaw and Dhawan couldn’t do much for the team. Steve Smith is also struggling with the bat. He is scoring runs with a poor run rate. The skipper Rishabh Pant is talking heavy loads in the middle.

Stoinis is scoring runs but not like the previous edition. Hetmyer is hitting well and he should be sent up in the batting order. DC need more depth in batting. Axar is bowling well but not impressed with the bat.

Rabada is struggling to get wickets and also going expensive in death overs. Ishant Sharma has bowled well in the last match. Avesh Khan is doing extremely well and in the race of purple cap this year.

Inside KKR:

Shubhman Gill is in a bad shape right now. Not only he is batting poor, his fielding is also going bad these days. Rahul Tripathi has risen on many occasions. The skipper Morgan has scored some runs in the last match as well.

DC vs KKR-What to expect

 A slow and low pitch has not exactly been the batsman’s friend so far unless dew has intervened. This could make for a tricky proposition when it comes to selection and the toss.

Probable XI of DC

Shaw and Dhawan will still continue. Steve Smith is struggling at no. 3 at wasting balls too. Sam Billings may replace Smith today. Pant, Stoinis, Hetmyer will be there as well.

Rabada is not having a good season so far. Woakes or Nortje may replace him. Axar, Amit will b the spin combo. Avesh Khan will be bowling fast with Ishant Sharma.

DC team against KKR:  Shikhar Dhawan, Prithvi Shaw, Steven Smith/Sam Billings, Rishabh Pant (C& WK), Marcus Stoinis, Shimron Hetmyer, Axar Patel, Amit Mishra/Lalit Yadav, Kagiso Rabada/Anrich Nortje, Ishant Sharma, Avesh Khan

Probable XI of KKR:

Gill should be benched but the management may back this player. If not then Karun Nair may replace Gill. Rana and Tripathi will be batting up. Morgan, DK, and Russell will be the key players.

KKR DC, Six Sports

Sunil Narine may continue. There may not be any changes in the bowling. Cummins, Mavi, Krishna, and Varun will be the bowlers. We may see Lockie if Cummins gets rested today.
