KKR might be missing the services of Andre Russell due to his injury concerns and availability of Sunil Narine is also doubtful as ICC has cleared him but it can affect his bowling.
Shikhar Dhawan has been in terrific form scoring two centuries in a row and holding the Capitals Batting Lineup together.
Both Teams have the Quality Bowling lineup with them which can trouble the batters. KKR has Cummins and Ferguson while on other hand Delhi has Rabada and Ntorje with their express pace.
We have now entered the latter part of the Tournament where teams are in a race for Playoffs Spots, 4 Games which are to be played in this weekend are very crucial for qualifying for Playoff spots. In today's game, Delhi Capitals will take on Kolkata Knight Riders at Sheikh Zayed Stadium. For KKR this is a very important game as if they lose this game it might be curtains for them keeping in mind their negative Net Run Rate due to Disastrous previous game against RCB. KKR have to first decide a perfect batting order as it lacks inconsistency which affects Team Performance. Shubman Gill lacks confidence as he has not performed according to the standard set by himself at the beginning. Tripathi looks absurd with Quality bowling in front of him, Dk and Morgan also have not lightened the IPL as per expectation. Talking about Bowling Department Lockie Ferguson has been the silver lining for the KKR. Cummins will like to take the new ball with Ferguson to dent the top order. Narine has chances to play but the inspection might affect his bowling.
There are not lots of things to worry about for Delhi Capitals as the side has been doing well. Shikhar Dhawan has been in prime form in this Tournament scoring two consecutive centuries. Return of Pant will also strengthen the middle order. Iyer will also like to score some runs which will give him confidence before going into important games. Marcus Stoinis has been the utility player for Capitals contributing in each possible way. In the previous game, Ntorje was rested and today Rabada might be given a rest before the playoff matches. Axar Patel and Ravi Ashwin are doing well in tandem. Delhi Would like to win this match and qualify for the Playoffs. Delhi Has Performed well as a unit which has been the reason behind their success.
Abu Dhabi has been one of the best venues in IPL 2020. It offers some bounce and pace to the players that allow an even contest between the bat and ball. The fast-bowlers can use the conditions to their advantage while the batsmen can score freely too if they get their eye in.A score of around 170 should be seen as par batting first.
We think the team that wins the toss is going to want to bat first. The conditions in Abu Dhabi were not as bowler-friendly as KKR made it seem in their previous match. The bowlers will be in the game for the duration of the match and having a good total on the board may be a significant advantage.
