At the time of writing, Delhi Capitals were part of the top four in the Indian Premier League 2021 points table, while Kolkata Knight Riders were a part of the bottom four. But coming into this game, the latter camp will be more confident than the former.
The reason for that being, Kolkata Knight Riders finally put an end to their four-match losing streak by beating Punjab Kings in their last game. On the contrary, Delhi Capitals tasted defeat after two consecutive wins in their last game against Royal Challengers Bangalore. They will be eyeing a way to make a comeback.

Andre Russell is coming a bit down the order, but the game against CSK showed that the Caribbean superstar can light the stage on fire whenever his team wants him to. He has also been successful with the ball, having picked up 6 wickets.

DC vs KKR Risky Captaincy Picks:
Nitish Rana hasn’t been at his best in the last few games, but he started off his campaign with two back-to-back half-centuries. He can be a risky pick for captaincy.
Prithvi Shaw is providing the Capitals with good starts. He scored 21 runs in the last game and has scored 30+ runs twice in his last 5 games, making him a differential captaincy pick.
Player you should avoid:
Shimron Hetmyer might have played a stunning knock in the last game, but it was his first good knock in this competition. He usually bats at a place where he doesn’t get too many balls to face and it is advisable to avoid him for this game, since another top-order failure from DC is unlikely.
