DD vs KKR Prediction at Kotla. Who’ll win today?

IPL Prediction 2017 Delhi Daredevils vs Kolkata Knight Riders at Kotla Stadium, Delhi – on the 17th of April in IPL 2017.


Delhi Daredevils

IPL 2017 Match Prediction : First Innings Score

Delhi Daredevils batsmen have put up more than 180+ in both of their last 2 matches, they will hope to continue this batting form and make a first innings total in excess of 160+.

The Delhi Daredevils are utilizing their resources well

Under the leadership of Zaheer Khan as coach and Rahul Dravid as senior mentor – the Delhi Daredevils began their IPL 2017 journey on a rather low note after having lost Duminy and De Kock but if their last 2 matches are anything to go-by; the Delhi unit has found form and hit just the right note to extract the maximum out of the potential that they have in their playing XI.

Sam Billings – the ideal opener for DD

We have predicted across our match reports that Sam Billings is an asset for Delhi Daredevils at the top of the order and he’s someone that hasn’t even got his due share in England t20 side but Billings is proving why he’s so lethal in this format of the game – the talent he has on himself was showcased against the Kings XI Punjab, the very match in which he scored a 50 and got his team closer to the target of 160+.

The Delhi Daredevils bowlers showed impressive form against Punjab

The Delhi Daredevils bowled with great discipline and while Punjab had the likes of Amla, Maxwell, Miller and Morgan in their side – 4 extremely talented batsmen to put it very modestly; the Delhi bowlers were incredible to restrict them to just 137 for 9 in their 20 overs; Delhi winning by 51 runs. Morris’ 3 wickets and 2 each for Nadeem and Cummins wrapped up a clinical performance from DD.

Kolkata Knight Riders

IPL 2017 Match Prediction : First Innings Score

This being a day game, the Kotla pitch will be very dry and we will see flurry of runs. 160+ is minimum that KKR will aim at.

Kolkata Knight Riders converted their confidence into performance

Coming into their last match against the Sunrisers Hyderabad with great confidence in their side – having beaten a strong Kings XI Punjab unit; KKR converted their confidence into performance and showed another impressive outing – beating the Sunrisers Hyderabad by 17 runs.

The KKR middle order responded to the crisis situation

Robin Uthappa came good for the KKR with 68 off 39, equally well supported by Manish Pandey’s 35 ball 46. Having lost Gambhir and Narine early, the KKR looked upto their middle order to fire and get them to a respectable score – a call to which the middle order answered and got KKR to 172 in their 20 overs.

The KKR bowling looks strengthened

All the bowlers apart from Umesh Yadav were in the wickets and this resulted in Hyderabad failing to chase down the total and losing by 15 runs. The star with the ball remained Narine who gave away just 18 runs in his 4 – grabbing 1 wicket. The bowling for KKR looks strong and it’ll be an interesting battle to see Narine at the Kotla pitch against Billings

IPL 2017 Match Prediction : Match Winning Team

While the Delhi Daredevils have got 2 solid wins in their bag, the KKR side will feel that the kind of form that their captain has shown in the tournament thus far, followed by the consistency of Manish Pandey and the coming into form of Uthappa – their batting looks very strong. Narine’s there to take care of the bowling, making KKR a very strong side to beat on their current form. KKR will be favourites.
