KOL vs DC Dream11 Match Preview
Kolkata Knight Riders:
Kolkata Knight Riders lose a match after two consecutive wins and are currently at the 4th position on the points table. They lost a thrilling game by just two wickets.
Shubhman Gill has been scoring runs quickly but has not been able to play a big inning, but his partner played brilliantly in a couple of matches. Tripathi has been consistent at No.3 but was unlucky to fall short of just five runs to his fifty, and in the middle-order, Eoin Morgan has been entirely out of form.
Nitish Rana and Dinesh Karthik finished the innings brilliantly in the last match. The bowlers have been the major strength of the team. Finally, Sunil Narine bowled well and picked up three wickets in the previous game. The remaining bowlers picked up one wicket each.
Kolkata needs to put the defeat behind and should focus on winning the coming matches.
This season, Dhawan has been in good form but fell early in the last match, and young Prithvi Shaw has struggled to score runs in the second half of the IPL. In the middle-order, Shreyas Iyer and Rishab Pant have been the pillars of the batting unit. Hetmyer scored some quick runs and finished the innings well for DC.
This bowling unit can defend a total on any given day. Anrich Nortje and Kagiso Rabada are picking up wickets consistently. Avesh Khan, Axar Patel, and Ravichandran Ashwin managed to pick up one wicket each.
Delhi Capitals look unstoppable at this point in this season.
