The Delhi Capitals (DC) and the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) will face each other for the second time in the Indian Premier League (IPL) this season. In the 41st match of IPL 2022, they meet at Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai, on 28 April. Both teams have previously struggled to find their ideal consistency and play on the pitch.
The Capitals are currently in the seventh position on the points table while Kolkata is currently in the eighth position. In the previous match, Delhi managed to beat KKR in their first meeting of the season by 44 runs. Of the seven matches played this season, the team led by captain Rishabh Pant has won three. While the Knight Riders which have played eight matches so far have also recorded three wins.
In the last match, the Capitals suffered a crushing defeat against the Rajasthan Royals. DC stars Rishabh Pant and Rovman Powell scored 44 runs and 36 runs for the Capitals in that game, respectively. Just like for DC, Kolkata also suffered a loss in the last match they played against the Gujarat Titans. The Kolkata-based franchise team lost by 8 runs. In that match, KKR star Andre Russell managed to record 48 runs and took 4 wickets for his team.
Delhi looks to have a slight advantage over the Knight Riders as they proved capable of beating Kolkata in their earlier game of the season at Brabourne Stadium. Back then, DC recorded one of the highest round totals in IPL 2022 before winning the match by 44 runs. On the other hand, Kolkata which is on a losing streak in its last four matches of the season is not looking to give up. They really need to win in the next game.
