Delhi Capitals and Kolkata Knight Riders are once again set to lock horns this season, with the first one being won by DC with a fairly huge margin.
Both the teams are off to a good start in IPL 2022 but have drastically fallen behind the rest with regular losses. Delhi Capitals is facing a shortage of death bowling, with only Mustafizur Rahman handling it so far. They expect Anirich Nortje to be back with full fitness to extend help in the bowling unit.
In terms of batting, Delhi has been exceptional so far. Their opening pair is one of the most successful pairs this season, with Prithvi Shaw and David Warner running bulldozing the opponent bowlers in powerplay every time. Although, DC may need some help in the middle order too for being good.
KKR on the other hand has to work both the batting and bowling departments equally. Except for Sunil Narine, none have been supportive so far, with even the experienced players like Umesh Yadav and Pat Cummins failing when needed.
And in batting, KKR has tried 4 different opening partnerships so far this season, having none of them worked. Expecting it to make significant changes tonight, here’s what tonight’s teams may look like;
