Cricket Betting Tips
So, this is the last chance for Delhi Daredevils to make a comeback otherwise their journey for this IPL would be over. They have already lost 5 out of 6 games and would be desperate to create some impact. Skipper Gautam Gambhir would be in immense pressure as this could match could also define his IPL career. He has not been in a great form from a while now and would want himself to score some runs against KKR.
Kolkata Knight Riders, on the other hand, are at 4th spot and would be looking to go one step further to 3rd spot. Dinesh Karthik is doing all the justice with his captaincy. So far, the journey of Khan’s KKR has been good. They need another 5 victories out of 8 games. Let’s have a glance at their strengths and weaknesses:
Rishabh Pant & Shreyas Iyer: The Saviours – Both the youngsters are playing really well and their contribution is this game would be plus point for DD. We have seen both of them against RCB; how well they built up their innings. If one of them can score big, then DD can be back in this tournament.
Home ground: Kotla has been lucky for DD! They have played just 1 game so far at Kotla (which they lost against KXIP) and would be looking to win from here onwards. It’s a high time for them as another loss from here can almost end their campaign.
Out of form Gambhir – It’s important for a leader to perform frequently to boost up the confidence of other players but the veteran Gambhir has been quite this season. He is unable to play his shots! He is struggling in front of every bowler. He has to come back in his form.
Aggressive captaincy – Karthik has been aggressive till now! He has led his side in his own way by consistently doing experiments. It is expected that DK will come with some more surprises in the game against under-performer Delhi Daredevils.
Strong middle order – KKR have a strong middle order in the form of Karthik, Nitish Rana, Andre Russell etc. They are capable in moving the scoreboard at any pace they want. Another victory from here can give them a 3rd spot in the points table.
Russell: The only striker – KKR are too much dependent on Andre Russell for big hits. If he fails to score in the game, they they are always 20-25 runs short. This is a big issue for the Knight Riders. But now, Shubman Gill is another talent who can hit big.
Delhi Daredevils: Prithvi Shaw, Gautam Gambhir, Shreyas Iyer (c), Glenn Maxwell, Rishabh Pant (wk), Rahul Tewatia, Daniel Christian, Amit Mishra/Shabhaz Nadeem, Liam Plunkett, Avesh Khan, Trent Boult.
Kolkata Knight Riders: Chris Lynn, Sunil Narine, Robin Uthappa, Nitish Rana, Dinesh Karthik, Shubman Gill, Andre Russell, Tom Curran, Piyush Chawla, Shivam Mavi, Kuldeep Yadav cricbuz
