DC vs KKR Head-to-Head Records
Average 1st Innings Score: 220 (From 2 matches played at this venue so far in this season)
Average 2nd Innings Score: 213 (From 2 matches played at this venue so far in this season)
The pitch here is perfect for batting as the ball nicely coms on to the bat, and also the boundaries are very short. We have already seen two high scoring matches at this venue so far in this season.
Although there will be the dew factor in the 2nd innings, the team batting first will have an advantage as the pitch tends to slow down in the 2nd innings, and the batsmen will struggle to hit big shots.
One of the two matches has been won by the team batting first at this venue.
There is no chance of rain on the match day, and the temperature is expected to be around 34 degrees.
