Cricket Betting Tips and Match Predictions IPL 2019 - Delhi Capitals v Kolkata Knight Riders

Amit Mishra 2-35 against Chennai Super Kings

The second encounter on double-header Saturday is between Delhi Capitals and Kolkata Knight Riders, played at the home ground of Delhi, the Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium.

Kolkata Knight Riders are coming off a win against Kings XI Punjab in the last match. After Chris Lynn was dismissed early, Sunil Narine showed some fireworks but it was the middle order which did the job for them. Handy knocks from Robin Uthappa, Nitish Rana and especially Andre Russell saw the team score 218 runs for the loss of four wickets from their 20 overs.

Russell was breathing fire in the last three overs and smashed 48 runs off just 17 balls, including three fours and five sixes. He came back to pick two wickets from his three overs and ensure a win for KKR.

On the contrary, Delhi Capitals lost their last match against Chennai Super Kings by six wickets. Following a decent start from Shikhar Dhawan and Prithvi Shaw, the team's middle order collapsed as they were only able to score 147. In reply, CSK chased the total with relative ease despite two wickets from Amit Mishra.

Capitals have a talented middle order comprising of captain Shreyas Iyer, Colin Ingram and Rishabh Pant. They have an excellent pace bowler in Kagiso Rabada and Ishant Sharma is bowling as well as he has ever bowled in his career. Axar Patel, Rahul Tewatia and Amit Mishra provide the team with variety in the spin department.

Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams.

Delhi Capitals- Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer, Colin Ingram, Rishabh Pant, Keemo Paul, Axar Patel, Rahul Tewatia, Amit Mishra, Kagiso Rabada, Harshal Patel 

Kolkata Knight Riders- Chris Lynn, Sunil Narine, Robin Uthappa, Nitish Rana, Dinesh Karthik, Shubman Gill, Andre Russell, Piyush Chawla, Kuldeep Yadav, Lockie Ferguson, Prasidh Krishna
