IPL 2020: Kolkata Knight Riders vs Delhi Capitals Dream11 Prediction

Bengaluru, October 24: Delhi Capitals will be eager to seal the play-off berth when they face Kolkata Knight Riders on Saturday (October 24) in the first match of the IPL 2020 double-header. The Capitals now have 14 points from 10 games, and a win can boost their tally to 16 and also an assured place in the knockouts.

On the other hand, a win is mandatory for the KKR. The Kolkatans now have 10 points from as many games with Kings XI Punjab and Sunrisers Hyderabad breathing down their neck with 8 points each. The KKR would like to win, climb to 12 points and move into a far more comfort zone.

Opener Shikhar Dhawan has been in brilliant form but even his record-setting hundred was not enough to save the side from a defeat against Kings XI Punjab for lack of contribution from other batters. Prithvi Shaw needs to bat with more responsibility. Shaw's last four innings have included two ducks. Skipper Shreyas Iyer too has not been hitting the ball as fluently as he was after suffering a side strain. Rishabh Pant, who made a comeback from injury against Punjab, too has not yet set the stage on fire. Iyer and Pant, along with Marcus Stoinis, form the backbone of Capitals' middle order.

Pacer Anrich Nortje, who has been instrumental in Capitals' superb run thus far along with his South African compatriot Kagiso Rabada, had a niggle and missed the last match against Punjab. If he comes back, it will add sting to DC''s attack. If he plays, Australian pacer Daniel Sams will have to make way for him.

KKR are heading into the contest after an embarrassing batting performance against Royal Challengers Bangalore. Blown away by Mohammed Siraj's furious spell, KKR managed just 84 runs on the board. It certainly was a confidence-crushing defeat and KKR need to regroup quickly. Even the change in captaincy has not instilled much confidence in the side. The performance of pacer Lockie Ferguson has been the only bright spot for them amid the disappointment of Andre Russell's poor run.

Russell missed out on the last match due to an injury and it will be interesting to see if the team management reposes faith in him, if he is fit. KKR needs a collective effort from now on with skipper Morgan, Dinesh Karthik, Shubhman Gill, Nitish Rana all required to contribute.
