Kolkata Knight Riders vs Delhi Capitals T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips, IPL 2024

Match 47 of the 2024 Indian Premier League sees Kolkata Knight Riders go head to head with Delhi Capitals on Monday evening at Eden Gardens. KKR have won five of their eight matches with Delhi Capitals on the same number of points but from two additional games. Read on as we preview this clash. The game begins in Kolkata at 19:30 local time on Monday 29th April.

KKR thought they were home and dry after posting 261/6 batting first against Punjab Kings on Friday but the pitch seemed to get easier to bat on as the match progressed and they lost with 8 balls remaining. We can expect an even more aggressive batting approach in this game as a result.

Delhi Capitals are certainly the most improved side in the tournament and they have completely turned their season around from the point when they had only one win from the first five matches! They will arrive in Kolkata full of confidence but this will be a very tough clash.

KKR vs DC Match Toss Prediction

Eyebrows were raised when Sam Curran chose to field first at this ground on Friday but in spite of his side conceding 261/6, they were still able to win the match with time to spare! As a result, we predict that both skippers will want to field first in this game.

KKR vs DC Pitch Report

In the last game at Eden Gardens we saw an incredible 523 runs and only eight wickets fall. Runs came easily throughout both innings and batters will be expected to hit boundaries from their first ball at the crease. Whoever bats first will be looking to post a total of at least 250 but even that may not be enough!

Kolkata Weather Report

There will be no cloud cover throughout any of this match on Monday with the temperature likely to drop from around 36 degrees to 33 degrees. The humidity levels are predicted to go above 65% by the end of the contest.

KKR Team News & Playing 11

KKR Team News

Mitchell Starc was left out of KKR’s XI for the last game with the team management briefing to the media that he had a slight injury. However, most pundits believed it was more due to his lack of form. But with KKR taking only one wicket with the ball in the last game, we expect the Australian to return.

KKR Key Players

  • Sunil Narine- the 35 year old has been producing with both bat and ball on a consistent basis in IPL 2024 season and Friday’s game was another with four overs costing only 24 runs as well as hitting 13 boundaries.
  • Phil Salt- the keeper-batter is a powerful hitter of the ball and finished with a strike-rate of 200+ after hitting 75 runs from 37 balls in the last game.
  • Harshit Rana- the 22 year old right-arm fast bowler conceded 61 runs in the last game but he will be keen to get back on track in this game at Eden Gardens where he had taken four wickets across the previous two matches.
  • Mitchell Starc- the Australian left-arm pace bowler has been expensive in the tournament but he is a very dangerous bowler and KKR could do with his attacking mentality with the ball in this game.

KKR Possible Impact Player Substitutes

Suyash Sharma, Anukul Roy, Manish Pandey, Vaibhav Arora, Rahmanullah Gurbaz

Left-arm spinner Anuku Roy came into the side for the fielding innings against Punjab Kings but, along with nearly all of the rest of the attack, was very expensive. However, the pace off option is likely to appeal again on this pitch with Venkatesh Iyer the candidate to drop out from the batting innings.

KKR Team Form

Kolkata Knight Riders are operating towards the top of the table but have lost three of their last five games.

KKR Predicted Playing 11

Phil Salt (wk), Sunil Narine, Venkatesh Iyer, Andre Russell, Shreyas Iyer (c), Rinku Singh, Ramandeep Singh, Angkrish Raghuvanshi, Varun Chakravarthy, Harshit Rana, Mitchell Starc

DC Team News & Playing 11

DC Team News

There were two new faces in the Delhi Capitals XI on Saturday afternoon at the Arun Jaitley Stadium with South African Lizaad Williams coming into the side along with Kumar Kushagra. Although Williams was wicketless and Kushagra didn’t get to bat, we expect the same XI to be selected for the trip to Kolkata.

DC Key Players

  • Jake Fraser-McGurk- it has been a remarkable introduction to the IPL from the young Australian who comes into this match averaging 49.40 and with a strike-rate of 237.50 from five innings.
  • Rishabh Pant- the keeper-batter-skipper had a tough time with poor results early in the tournament but impressed again on Saturday with 29 runs from only 19 balls.
  • Mukesh Kumar- the right-arm fast medium bowler has been very consistent in this campaign and arrives in Kolkata after taking three wickets against Mumbai Indians.
  • Kuldeep Yadav- the left-arm wrist spinner went wicketless on Saturday but still has an impressive strike-rate of 13.50 in this year’s IPL.

DC Possible Impact Player Substitutes

Rasikh Salam, Praveen Dubey, Vicky Ostwal, Ricky Bhui, Sumit Kumar

Right-arm medium fast bowler Rasikh came into the side again on Saturday and took three wickets whilst having the best economy rate so we expect him to play the same role during the bowling innings in this game. 

DC Team Form

Delhi Capitals are one of the in-form sides in the tournament with four wins from their last five games.

DC Predicted Playing 11

Jake Fraser-McGurk, Abishek Porel, Shai Hope, Rishabh Pant (c/wk), Tristan Stubbs, Kumar Kushagra, Axar Patel, Kuldeep Yadav, Lizaad Williams, Mukesh Kumar, Khaleel Ahmed

Who will win Kolkata Knight Riders vs Delhi Capitals T20 Match?

With both teams in the top five ahead of Sunday’s game, it is no surprise that we have so many top performing players on show in this match. Delhi Capitals will take some stopping but we think KKR are the stronger side.

🏆 KKR vs DC Prediction

Both of these teams have fearless batting line-ups as well as bowling attacks who have been hit around a fair bit across the tournament. As such, this could well be another high-scoring contest at Eden Gardens. We are predicting both teams to score over 240 but we think that KKR will benefit from their greater experience at home and will have learnt from their defeat on Friday to Punjab Kings. Our prediction is for KKR to win a close clash.
