DC vs KKR: Double-header #1 of the season
IPL 2020 has become synonymous to Excitement, Fun, Entertainment and for a weekend, all we want is fun. To double all this fun, the first Double-header of the Dream 11 IPL is here with 2 live-wire clashes. The afternoon game is between RCB and RR, and the second game of the double header is at 7:30 PM IST between Delhi Capitals and Kolkata Knight Riders. This is the first time both the teams are playing in the Sharjah Cricket Stadium.
This combination looks promising especially since both DC and KKR are in the top half of the points table and will need a victory in this game to stay on the top. Both the teams have won 2 matches and lost 1 in this season, but the situation is different for both because DC’s loss is a recent one, whereas KKR walk into the match with 2 consecutive victories in the recent matches.
DC and KKR have played against each other 24 times in the IPL seasons, out of which, KKR has won 13 times. Although DC started the season with a splendid performance, they lost their last match to SRH but that does not change how good they were. Both the teams have some biggest hitters on their sides, which will make the match interesting.
In the Delhi Capitals squad, Rishabh Pant has 96 runs in the last games and needs 4 sixes for 100 IPL sixes. The captain Shreyas Iyer has made 82 runs so far and is capable of adding more. Marcus Stoinis and Shikhar Dhawan have made a good figure of 69 runs. Prithvi Shaw is one of the players that can bring runs if anyone else fails.
DC have an exceptionally good bowling unit as Rabada has taken 7 wickets so far in this season and 2 more can get him the Purple Cap. Amit Mishra is 1 wicket away from the 100 wickets mark and has taken 2 wickets along with Ravichandran Ashwin, Axar Patel, Anrich Nortje and Stoinis.
For KKR, the current player combination is working well and each player has been amazing. Shubman Gill has made 124 runs in the last games and has shown his mettle. Eoin Morgan has a strike rate of 127.55 and has made 92 runs till now. Andre Russell, the powerhouse, who needs 65 runs to complete 1500 IPL runs, might do it in this match. Pat Cummins, Nitish Rana are known to be very handy in getting runs for the team.
On the bowling side; Shivam Mavi (4 wickets), Varun Chakravarthy (3 wickets), and Kamlesh Nagarkoti with 2 wickets continue to impress. Sunil Narine and Pat Cummins also have taken 2 wickets.
With such good teams that cancel out each other’s power, it is difficult to say who will win.
