The evening match of Indian Premier League Season 13 first double header between Delhi Capitals vs Kolkata Knight Riders will be played at Sharjah Cricket Stadium situated at Sharjah. Once again we are expecting a high scoring contest on this small ground and surely Andre Russell and Rishabh Pant has a golden opportunity to showcase their six hitting ability as both these players will come in quite handy for their respective teams today and for the bowlers well we can only pray for them as its Sharjah at the end of the day.
Kolkata Knight Riders have won the toss after which they have opted to field first and its the right call on this small Sharjah ground in our opinion. Even 230 runs is not a safe score on this ground and KKR has Andre Russell in their team who can the make the most out of these short boundaries. Talking about team changes Ravichandran Ashwin is back in Delhi team in place of Axar Patel also Harshal Patel is playing today in place of Ishant Sharma. Kolkata has made only one change in their playing xi as Rahul Tripathi came in place of Kuldeep Yadav.
Delhi Capitals (Playing XI): Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer(c), Rishabh Pant(w), Shimron Hetmyer, Marcus Stoinis, Ravichandran Ashwin, Harshal Patel, Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje, Amit Mishra
Kolkata Knight Riders (Playing XI): Shubman Gill, Sunil Narine, Nitish Rana, Dinesh Karthik(w/c), Eoin Morgan, Rahul Tripathi, Andre Russell, Pat Cummins, Kamlesh Nagarkoti, Shivam Mavi, Varun Chakravarthy
DC vs KKR 16th IPL Match 3 Oct 2020 Score Updates
Delhi Capitals – 228/4 – 20 Overs
Kolkata Knight Riders – 210/8 – 20 Overs
Delhi Capitals won the match by 18 runs
We are predicting a Kolkata win in this 16th match of Dream 11 IPL 2020 and the major reason behind this is that Kolkata Knight Riders have way better pace bowling lineup as compared to Delhi. Delhi relies mostly on their spin attack and this Sharjah ground is a graveyard for the spinners as seen in the recent past. Nagarkoti, Mavi, Cummins along with Russell can turn out to be a nightmare for Delhi batters tonight.
