DD Vs KKR Prediction, Preview With Match Analysis: Who Will Win today’s IPL Match?

The 26th match of IPL 2018 will be played between Delhi Daredevils and the Kolkata Knight Riders at the home ground of the Daredevils. Both the teams look to bounce back in this match after their previous losses. While the Knights are in a somewhat decent position in the standings, the same cannot be said for their opponents. The Daredevils are sitting at the bottom of the table after having lost five. This might just be the chance the Knights to recuperate and corroborate themselves as a top contender. Join us as we bring you the team news, match preview, playing 11, today’s match analysis and predictions.

(DD) Delhi Daredevils


The Daredevils despite boasting the likes of Gautam Gambhir, Glenn Maxwell, Chris Morris, and Amit Mishra among others have failed to deliver when needed. In their last match, against Kings XI Punjab, the devastating bowling combo of Trent Boult and Liam Plunkett restricted the mighty batting lineup of Punjab. This time, the big names fumbled in the batting allowing Punjab to clinch a narrow four-run victory. Shreyas Iyer and Rahul Tewatia, the talented young duo granted some hope but it was not enough. The Daredevils do have a lot of experience on the bench in the form of Albie Morkel. Maxwell’s poor form will surely be a worry for the team. Gautam Gambhir also needs to show his run-scoring abilities as he is one of the best players on this team.

Delhi Daredevils have firepower but it is just a matter of when they will start firing. We all know what Maxwell can do once he is in the mood to start whacking. Gambhir might be out of form in this IPL 2018 but no one questions his credentials. Unfortunately the top batsman for DD, Jason Roy is out injured and Chris Morris is also nursing a back injury.

Gautam Gambhir took a major decision to step down from captaincy and in our opinion, it is a good thing. Shreyas Iyer will be handed the task to lead the team against KKR.

The youngsters will be key to Delhi’s’ success while the bowling will be handled by Boult and Mishra.

DD Playing XI

Prithvi Shaw, Rishabh Pant, Shreyas Iyer, Glenn Maxwell, Rahul Tewatia, Liam Plunkett, Amit Mishra, Trent Boult, Avesh Khan, Daniel Christian, Naman Ojha.

KKR (Kolkata Knight Riders)

The two-time champions have yet to find their full stride in IPL 2018. This year armed with a new captain, the Knights will look to capture the trophy for the third time. Their last match proved a bit unlucky as it was a pretty much rain washed affair. Not taking away anything from the openers of KXIP, the Knights lost via D/L method despite posing a competitive score. The Kolkata Knight Riders have a very well balanced team in his IPL 2018. With explosive batsmen like Dinesh Karthik, Robin Uthappa, and Chris Lynn, they can manage to score and chase down runs. The bowling department is handled by the ever dependent Sunil Narine, Tom Curran, and Piyush Chawla. Despite losing two aces in the form of Mitchell Starc and Mitchell Johnson, KKR’s bowling has held on their own.

Team News

The opening pair of Chris Lynn and Sunil Narine has been the dark horse of KKR, especially Narine. I think Narine is becoming more of a batsman in this role and chipping invaluable runs. KKR will surely look up to their captain for IPL 2018, Dinesh Karthik. He has been valuable for the team and KKR will be hoping for him to keep performing consistently. Robin Uthappa is another priceless player who has proved his abilities time and again. The young and dynamic Nitish Rana has certainly been the team’s breakout player in IPL 2018. He has provided with the bat as well as the ball.


KKR will be looking towards Sunil Narine to restrict their opponents again. Tom Curran has proven himself this season and Piyush Chawla continues to impress.

We think KKR will score huge with Chris Lynn and Dinesh Karthik being the key players in this match. The spinners will surely play a role in disrupting the batting lineup.

KKR Playing 11

Sunil Narine, Chris Lynn, Robin Uthappa, Dinesh Karthik, Nitish Rana, Andre Russell, Tom Curran, Piyush Chawla, Shubman Gill, Kuldeep Yadav, Shivam Mavi.

    KKR has the firepower to beat DD, and after Gambhir stepping down as captain it will be a steep task for Iyer despite playing on home ground. The money will be on KKR, and they are way ahead in this tie.
