KKR Vs DD Prediction. Who Will today’s match between Kolkata Knight Riders and Delhi DareDevils ?

Kolkata Knight Riders take on in form Delhi Daredevils at the Mecca of Indian Cricket, the Eden Gardens. IPL 2018 has been a rollercoaster so far with the only SRH looking invincible and the decision of batting second is looking to be the best bet. Let us get underway with the 13th match of IPL 11, and see what both teams have in their kitties.

Kolkata Knight Riders


Back to back defeats is never a pretty sign even for the optimists, and KKR has been on the receiving end following a dismal bowling performance against CSK, and a below par batting against SRH in front of the home crowd. Questions will be raised following DK’s decision to bat Narine at number 4, where he just couldn’t start off the fireworks and never looked at ease. The story is pretty simple; get Narine in the powerplay and utilize the fielding restrictions. Uthappa hasn’t yet made the scorers busy while Lynn despite his 49 looks peripheral against the spinners. Nitish Rana looks like a player DK can bank on and will be key to their remaining matches. The decision to send Russell ahead of Shubman Gill only piled pressure on the youngster, and after Russell’s recklessness, one can hardly blame the prodigious talent.

Kolkata Knight Riders is not shying away from using their youth department, and the inclusion of Shivam Mavi shows he can be a match winner in the future. Johnson was pelted all over, and Russell looked toothless with the ball. It was again the spin trio of Kuldeep Yadav, Piyush Chawla, and KKR talisman Narine who looked to set up SRH for a nervy finish.

KKR will need to sort out their batting line-up and should stick to the policy of Narine opening the game with Lynn. Lynn’s problem against the spin will be exploited by DD, but he is a match winner beyond a shadow of a doubt. IPL 11 hasn’t seen the best out of Uthappa or Dinesh Karthik, and those two will be roaring along. In the spin department, always keep your eye out for Sunil Narine. Mavi may hold on to his place, but DK needs to put more faith in him.

Delhi Daredevils


DD will be backing themselves after a stellar performance against Mumbai Indians and will have a lot of positives to hold on to. Jason Roy being the biggest. He looked ominous barring the 3 balls in the last over where he was looking to smoke the ball with only a run remaining to win. Gambhir opening the innings was a good sign, and DD should stick to it if they plan to win IPL 11 and stamp their dominance. Rishabh Pant was terrific with his 47 and was unlucky to miss out on a half-century. Maxwell has shown glimpses, but this is nothing new with him. The decision to field Dan Christian was a wise one as he picked up a couple of wickets, and the burly lad can cream the ball out of the park.

Delhi Daredevils will be immensely satisfied with their bowling performance considering MI scored 84 in the first 6 overs. Shami and Tewatia have looked good, and Boult is always a reliable weapon. DD can look for another spinning option with Nadeem not looking to threaten the batsmen. All in all, IPL 2018 may see a change in fortunes with Gautam Gambhir as their skipper, and he would know every inch of the Eden Gardens and their home support. It will be an emotional comeback for the skipper.

Jason Roy; who else would be the key player. Glenn Maxwell will always be there despite his form. Rishabh Pant is looking better with each game. In the bowling department, Trent Boult and Dan Christian will be of immense use, as the latter has a terrific slower ball up his sleeves.

KKR Vs DD Match Prediction: Who will today’s match?

IPL 2018 has favored the team batting second albeit RCB lost to RR yesterday, but a small Eden Gardens outfield paired with a good batting track will favor the side batting second. KKR is favorites to win this match.
