𝕁𝕚𝕠𝕋𝕧𝕧𝕚𝕟𝕖𝕖 – In the Indian Premier League 2020, the team of Delhi Capitals was number two on the table. The same Kolkata Knight Riders team is at number four in the table. Today’s match will be very important for Kolkata.
If today’s Kolkata team wins, then they will have high hopes of reaching the playoffs. Today’s match between Kolkata and Delhi will be played at Sheikh Zayed International Cricket Stadium in Abu Dhabi from 3:30 pm.
But if the Delhi Capitals team wins today, it will become the first team to reach the playoffs. For Delhi Capitals, their opener batsman Shikhar Dhawan is in his best form. He has scored consecutive centuries in both of his previous matches.
But the rest of Delhi batsmen are unable to support them, so they had to face defeat against Punjab. Delhi Capitals team opener Prithvi Shaw will have a lot of responsibility in today’s match. Who has not been able to score runs in 4 consecutive matches? Shaw could not even open an account twice in his last 4 innings.
While Shreyas Iyer is not able to bat like before due to the clout. His partner Rishabh Pant has also recovered from injury but he was seen struggling a lot in the last match. Apart from this, Marcus Stoinis is playing an important role in Delhi Capitals.
If we talk about Kolkata will have big responsibilities in this match on his new captain Eoin Morgan. Kolkata suffered a humiliating defeat in the last match against Royal Challengers. In that match, KKR’s team could score only 84 runs.

Kolkata is still 10 points ahead of the other teams below with number four on the number four in the score table. But if Kolkata has to reach the playoffs, then they will have to win all their matches. The biggest worry for the Kolkata team is their middle-order batsmen who are not able to perform consistently.
Possible playing XI of Delhi Capitals:
Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer (captain), Rishabh Pant, Marcus Stoinis, Shimron Hetmyer, Akshar Patel, R Ashwin, Anrich Nortje, Kagiso Rabada, Tushar Deshpande.
Possible playing XI of Kolkata Knight Riders:
Shubman Gill, Rahul Tripathi, Nitish Rana, Eoin Morgan (Captain), Dinesh Karthik, Tom Banton, Pat Cummins, Kuldeep Yadav, Lockie Ferguson, Prasidh Krishna
