Delhi Capitals will host Kolkata Knight Riders at home for the match 28 of the Indian Premier League 2023. DC have already lost 5 matches in a row this IPL and another defeat will quash their playoff hopes even further. Meanwhile, KKR got beaten in their last two encounters which has derailed their IPL campaign somewhat. A victory at the Arun Jaitley Stadium is paramount for both teams, especially the host Delhi Capitals to make the play in this season's tournament.

Pitch Report

The pitches at Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi are some of the most balanced ones in the IPL 2023 as they offer help to the batters and bowlers alike. The average first innings score at this venue in T20 Cricket is 165 and more teams win while chasing than defending totals here.

Team Analysis

Delhi Capitals

David Warner has been the highest scorer for DC at the top of the order in the IPL 2023 but he hasn’t had much support from his teammates. It is the main reason why Delhi Capitals are languishing at the foot of the IPL ladder right now. Axar Patel the all-rounder and Anrich Nortje have been contributing to their team’s cause with both ball and bat, but their hard work hasn’t been enough for Delhi to earn their first win in this year’s tournament.

SportsTiger Playing XI of DC

David Warner (c), Prithvi Shaw, Mitchell Marsh, Yash Dhull, Manish Pandey, Axar Patel, Lalit Yadav, Abhishek Porel (wk), Anrich Nortje, Kuldeep Yadav, Mustafizur Rahman (Potential Impact Player - Aman Khan for Prithvi Shaw)

Kolkata Knight Riders

Kolkata Knight Riders batting lineup has been delivering the goods consistently with their left-handed trio of the captain Nitesh Rana, Venkatesh Iyer, and Rinku Singh leading the charge. But as many runs as KKR are scoring with the bat, they are conceding them with the ball at a faster rate. The performances from fast bowlers like Lockie Ferguson and Umesh Yadav have been way below par, meanwhile the spin trio of Sunil Narine, Varun Chakravarthy, and Suyash Sharma are struggling with the ball for Kolkata too.

SportsTiger Playing XI of KKR

Kolkata Knight Riders: Rahmanullah Gurbaz (wk), Narayan Jagadeeshan, Venkatesh Iyer, Nitish Rana (c), Rinku Singh, Andre Russell, Shardul Thakur, Sunil Narine, Lockie Ferguson, Umesh Yadav, Varun Chakravarthy (Potential Impact Substitute - Suyash Sharma for Venkatesh Iyer)
