IPL 2022: Match 41, DC vs KKR Match Prediction – Who will win today’s IPL Match?

DC vs KKR Match Prediction -Who Will Win Today’s Match?

Preview

DC vs KKR: DC and KKR are struggling at the bottom half of the table with six points each. KKR in particular started the tournament well and then fell away after a few games. Their batting has been too aggressive to early, leading to below-par scores. The bowling has been decent but with Varun Chakravarthy not at his best they are not able to penetrate teams in the middle-overs with their special spin threat. They rely heavily on the two spinners but with one struggling, KKR are finding themselves in a spot of bother.

The Delhi Capitals have and are still struggling with Covid. They lost players early on due to national duty, and once the players were available, Covid has kept another set of players unavailable. To top it all, they also lost their coach. Ricky Ponting, and Pravin Amre has been given a one match ban for entering the field during a controversial moment. The Delhi Capitals were clearly upset with the umpiring call in the previous game, and copped heavy punishment, but will need to put all of that behind them as they bring their tournament back to life.

Key Players

Andre Russell

Andre Russell was at his best in the previous game. He bowled the final over and took four wickets to restrict Gujarat Titans in the death. He used his variations and surprise pace well. With the bat as well, Andre Russell kept KKR in the game, and has been decent throughout the tournament making him one to keep an eye on.

Rishabh Pant

Rishabh Pant is consistently getting starts this season but hasn’t managed to convert his starts to a noticeable score. He has flown a touch under the radar, playing in a less flashy manner, but his consistency in getting starts this season is a factor that still leaves him as a valuable player in the side

DC vs KKR Match Tips

Both teams are struggling to get a move on this season. KKR though has a few more holes in their team with both batting and bowling inconsistent, leaving them slightly behind unless there is some exceptional individual performance from one of their players.

Match Prediction: DC will win the match.
