In the first match of the doubleheader of Indian Premier League(IPL) 2021, Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) are set to lock horns with the Delhi Capitals (DC) on Tuesday, September 28, at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium in Sharjah.
Kolkata Knight Riders:
KKR would be eyeing to bag a victory in this outing to gain an edge in the contention for the playoff places. KKR played well against CSK, but MS Dhoni-led side escaped with a narrow victory. Skipper Eoin Morgan did well to control CSK’s chase and put KKR in a controlling position to close out the game.
However, the decision to give the penultimate over to seamer Prasidh Krishna turned out to be costly as they relinquished the crucial points. Andre Russell also sustained an injury which is a major blow for the side. They will also be without the services of Kuldeep Yadav for the remainder of the season.
On the other hand, DC would be ensuring their playoffs qualification with a win. They had put up a respectable total on the board against RR. They were outstanding with the ball from the onset that helped them achieve a 33-run win.
Marcus Stoinis’ injury woes have impacted their batting order, and their top five will look to fill in.
While Stoinis remains the only injury worry for DC, More crucially, they’re expected to be without Andre Russell after he picked up a hamstring injury against CSK.
Waging Odds: Kolkata Knight Riders (2.05) vs Delhi Capitals(1.72)
KKR are the underdogs and are priced at 2.05 meaning if you bet ₹100 on them and if they win the match, you’ll be making ₹205.

KKR can’t afford to lose the momentum despite the loss against CSK. But the injury of Russell will certainly help DC getting the edge in terms of balance in the squad. DC could get a third consecutive win if they carry on the performance that they have been delivering.
DC will win the match.
