KKR after a strong start (won 3 out of 4 games), have lost 4 matches on a trot in IPL 2022 while DC are coming after a heart-breaking 15 runs loss against RR in their previous match. Some of the proven players like Venkatesh Iyer and Varun Chakravarthy have been struggling to get back in form and that has been hurting the winning chances of Kolkata today.
Kolkata will be desperate to win this match as 1 more loss might easily put them out of contention for Playoffs spot while Delhi also will be keen to get back to their winning ways again. Last time when these two teams played against each other DC defeated KKR convincingly by 44 runs as Prithvi Shaw and Warner were breathing fire in that match.
