Both Kolkata Knight Riders and Delhi Capitals will want to get back to winning ways in the IPL. Watch live action of KKR vs DC and get head-to-head details.
The upcoming weekend in the Indian Premier League is set to witness an intriguing clash when Kolkata Knight Riders and Delhi Capitals face off at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi on Saturday.
KKR have faced a few uncertain times in the last few weeks in IPL 2020. Wicketkeeper Dinesh Karthik relinquished the captaincy to England’s World Cup-winning skipper Eoin Morgan.
The two-time IPL champions then faced their heaviest defeat for many years against RCB, as they finished with a paltry 84-8, the lowest 20-over score in IPL history. RCB chased it down with more than six overs to spare.
KKR’s batting is a major concern with Shubman Gill, Dinesh Karthik and Eoin Morgan all looking out of touch. However, the inclusion of Lockie Ferguson has bolstered their bowling and KKR will hope he steps up again on Saturday. Watch KKR vs DC on live streaming.
Delhi Capitals in contrast are enjoying a much stronger season. They sit atop the points table with a healthy net run-rate. However, they faced a heavy loss against KXIP in the previous game.
Veteran Shikhar Dhawan is looking in fine nick, scoring two consecutive IPL centuries, the first in the history of the tournament.
However, the rest of the batting has not been at their best.
DC captain Shreyas Iyer has looked good in bits while Prithvi Shaw and Rishabh Pant have not yet hit the consistently high-levels expected of them in IPL 2020.
Kagiso Rabada, Ravichandran Ashwin and Axar Patel have been excellent with the ball and will look to the batsmen to raise their game.
Kolkata Knight Riders and Delhi Capitals have gone head-to-head in 25 matches with KKR winning 13 matches and DC 11. DC had beaten KKR by 18 runs in their earlier encounter in IPL 2020.
Kolkata Knight Riders vs Delhi Capitals will be played on Saturday, October 24. The IPL 2020 match will start live at 3.30 PM Indian Standard Time (IST).
IPL 2020 will be broadcast live on the Star Sports network in India. Fans can watch KKR vs DC on Star Sports 1, Star Sports 1 HD, Star Sports 2, Star Sports 2 HD, Star Sports 1 Hindi and Star Sports 1 Hindi HD TV channels.
