19:35 hrs IST

Delhi Capitals opt to field

Delhi Capitals have won the toss and they decided to field against Kolkata Knight Riders in New Delhi. In the last match at Feroz Shah Kotla, the hosts were defeated after batting first and today, they will trying something different.

19:25 hrs IST

Pratik: Top stars for DD

153.50: Shreyas Iyer has the highest batting strike-rate against KKR in the IPL (Min: 125 balls faced).

Also, Amit Mishra is just 2 wickets away from becoming the first Indian bowler to take 150 IPL wickets!

19:19 hrs IST

Sayan: Some KKR stats

183.45: Andre Russell has the best batting strike-rate in the tournament (Min: 125 balls faced). Russell is followed by Cutting (174.21), Narine (171.12) and Pant (167.41) in the list.

22.79: Narine has the 2nd best bowling average for KKR in IPL (Min: 250 balls) after Woakes (22.70). Narine is followed by Russell in the list with the average of 22.87.

19:14 hrs IST

Pratik: Don’t forget about Rishabh Pant

It is true that Nitish Rana is enjoying a brilliant run of form but it will be unwise to forget about Rishabh Pant. The youngster has amassed 680 runs from just 18 innings at Feroz Shah Kotla in IPL and when he gets going, it is a treat for all the cricket fans. He proved his mettle with a brilliant 78 against Mumbai Indians and if he gets going against the shaky KKR bowling attack, it will be game, set and match for the Capitals.

19:09 hrs IST

Sayan: The Nitish Rana factor

Nitish Rana has been the top performer for KKR this season and with two fifties, he is looking in brilliant form at the moment. Out of his top 5 knocks in the IPL, his 2nd and 3rd best knock came in this season and that is not going to be good news for the Capitals. Add Robin Uthappa and Andre Russell into the mix and we can all see why KKR are the better team at the moment.

KKR face DC test

Hello and welcome to the coverage of the IPL 2019 encounter between Delhi Capitals and Kolkata Knight Riders. While KKR are looking to continue their brilliant run of form in the tournament, DC will be looking to bounce back after losing their match against Chennai Super Kings. My name is Sayan Ghosh and I believe that KKR are clear favourites in this game but my colleague Pratik Sagar has placed his bet on Delhi Capitals.
