DC vs KKR: Can Iyer continue his dominance or Pant will seek redemption for previous losses in today’s IPL match between Delhi vs Kolkata?

Kolkata’s fortune this year is on a winning streak and showing strong potential to qualify the playoffs, and even lift the trophy, just like they did in IPL 2012 and 2014. With Shreyas Iyer leading the team from the front, the team holds extremely talented and veteran players such as Mitchell Starc, all-rounder Andre Russell, Sunil Narine, and more. This is among the many reasons why opposition teams have a difficult time in finding gaps in KKR’s batting lineup or bowling attacks and disrupt them. Today, Shreyas Iyer-led Kolkata Knight Riders is all set to face Rishabh Pant’s Delhi Capitals which is all set to take place on 3 April in ACA-VDCA International Cricket Stadium in Visakhapatnam. Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) have won both the matches that they played till date, one against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) on March 23, and the other against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) on March 29.

It was a close call between SRH vs KKR, thanks to Russell’s power-hitting which aided Kolkata to emerge victorious by a margin of 4 runs. On the contrary, it was an easy win for KKR against RCB.

With a net total of 182 by RCB, KKR’s chase of 183 was done and dusted within 16.5 overs. Currently, KKR is at no 2 at the leaderboard, with a total of 4 points and a NRR of +0.147.

On the other hand, Delhi’s chances of winning seems slim, with the team having won only 1 out of the 3 matches played against Punjab Kings (PBKS) on March 23, Rajasthan Royals (RR) on March 28, and Chennai Super Kings (CSK) on March 31.

Delhi only emerged victorious against CSK in its last match, having won by 20 runs. At present, DC is standing at no 7 in the leaderboard with only 2 points, and a NRR of -0.016.
