DC will take on KKR tonight at the Feroz Shah Kotla.
KKR is high on success after winning two of its matches against strong contenders. KKR looks a balanced team on and off the paper whereas DC has a mixed fortune in its first two matches with one win and one loss.
The pitch at Kotla tends to get slower in the later innings of the match. As the temperature is rising in northern India, the toss-winning team would like to bowl first to get the most benefit from the pitch
The batting line of DC has a lot of potential and should be used accordinlgy. Chris Morris might be included in playing XI boosting the moral of the Team. If Morris joins playing XI, the vacancy for a proper all-rounder will be filled displacing Keemo Paul out of playing XI.
DC probable XI:
Shikhar Dhawan, Prithvi Shaw, Shreyas Iyer, Colin Ingram, Rishabh Pant, Chris Morris, Axar Patel, Amit Mishra, Rahul Tewatia, Kagiso Rabada, Ishant Sharma
Kolkata Knight Riders
KKR is table topper winning 2 out of 2 matches they played at home. Andre Russell is doing wonders for KKR followed by Nitish Rana and Robin Uthappa .
