IPL 2019: Delhi Capitals beat Kolkata Knight Riders by 7 wickets

KKR vs DC Dream 11 team Prediction

Kagiso Rabada trumped Andre Russell the first time around when Kolkata Knight Riders and Delhi Capitals met for the first time in IPL 2019 and it's time for round two, this time at the Eden Gardens on Friday in Match 26 of the league. They have now registered their 4th win of the season and moved to the 4th spot in the table surpassing KXIP due to better NRR.

The Kolkata Knight Riders are a spin heavy team and therefore Prithvi Shaw even as an opening batsman will have to expect facing spin early on in his innings. "He's a class act".

It must have been great relief for the national selectors to see Dhawan get back his touch and return among runs three days before they sit to pick up the India squad for the upcoming World Cup. After that partnership was broken - when Shreyas was caught behind off Andre Russell, Dhawan took it upon himself to steer the run-chase; he finished unbeaten on 97 from 63 balls, and found good company in Rishabh Pant, who made 46 from 31 balls.

The dashing wicketkeeper-batsman Pant, on his part, showed vast maturity as he played a second fiddle to Dhawan during his 31-ball 46. The pair added 105 runs and took the Delhi Capitals to the brink before Pant was dismissed in the eighteenth over; Dhawan and Colin Ingram finished off the job.

"According to the situation, we pushed him up to four to gave him more opportunity to bat". Ishant knocked out the off-stump of Joe Denly with a fantastic inswinger, the Englishman lasting just one ball on his IPL debut.

On his new role, Ganguly said: "It is much more hard to sit in the dugout than playing in the middle".

Ganguly was a "visitor" at his own Eden Gardens with many detractors alleging he had a say in manipulating the pitch as he is also the Cricket Association of Bengal president.

Dinesh Karthik tried to attack midway through the innings, but Rabada dismissed the Kolkata skipper, who clipped away straight to deep square-leg and walked back cheaply for two. Both the team made some couple of changes. "So there's a lot of self-pride in turning teams around". "I know many stories are cooked up, but I can't do anything about it", Ganguly said.
