KKR despite not having a great season so far are coming after a win in their previous game. However, on the other hand, DC are coming into this clash after being defeated by a small margin of 1 run to RCB. However Delhi Capitals will be walking into the game as favorites with the likes of heavy top-order in Shikhar Dhawan, Prithivi Shaw, Rishabh Pant and Shimron Hetmyer.
