Delhi hurting after one-run loss
Delhi Capitals come off the back of a hurting loss against Royal Challengers Bangalore, a fixture they lost by just a run. They have only themselves to blame for some tactical errors and meet Kolkata with odds of 1.71 to pull off a win in this match in Ahmedabad.
Kolkata Knight Riders, on the other hand, rode on the excellence of their bowling unit to produce a stunning win against Punjab Kings. However, their batting still came under scrutiny in the game and as they face Delhi, the vulnerable side has odds of 2.05 to beat DC.
Recent records favour Delhi Capitals
Overall, Kolkata have a richer history in the Indian Premier League, with Delhi Capitals haven’t quite found it easy. Overall, they have a 14-12 record in the IPL in head to head contests with Kolkata dominating.
RECOMMENDED BET: Delhi have a strong squad and have odds of 1.71 to beat KKR
But, the gap is small courtesy of a great effort from Delhi in last three seasons where they won four and lost two.
Keep an eye on…
Andre Russell: He played a blinder in one game, but the Kolkata all-rounder hasn’t quite been able to make an impact because of lack of enough time at the crease. Russell will likely be pushed up the order in this game.
Rishabh Pant: He arguably played a match-losing knock last game, but Rishabh Pant remains a big player for Delhi Capitals. The Kolkata attack should also be to his liking. Can he produce another spectacle?
TIP: Delhi’s opening pair has contributed immensely to their success this year and they have odds of 1.80 to put up the bigger stand.
