IPL 2022 Delhi Capitals vs Kolkata Knight Riders match prediction for Today’s IPL match: DC Vs KKR– 28th of April at 07:30 PM local time.

Match Preview

We saw that a team with a perennial “not good enough for the capital” attitude could bite quite good. Will we see another good performance from Delhi? It’s possible, but let’s check stats before betting. Let’s analyse the second Delhi Capitals vs Kolkata Knight Riders Match, scheduled approximately in a week.

Delhi Capitals did 5 matches, 2 won and 3 lost; now it sits in the 8th place of the points table. The successful matches were:

  1. In the intense fight against Mumbai Indians, they won by 4 wickets.
  2. And in the first meeting with KKR, they won by 44 runs.

Kolkata Knight Riders sitting in the 6th place, played 7 matches, 3 won and 4 lost.

  1. They won over CSK by 6 wickets and were leading consistently during the whole match.
  2. They beat PBKS by 6 wickets, also showing a confident play.
  3. Also, the intense match against MI ended with the win by 5 wickets.

The 2 teams have a long head-to-head history of 30 matches, where KKR has 16 wins, and DC has 13 wins. Usually, if DC wins in the first meeting, KKR takes the next leg. DC won twice only in 2009.

Match Info, Pitch report 2022, Weather

The Delhi Capitals vs Kolkata Knight Riders Match #41 will be at the Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai on the 28th of April (07:30 PM local time).

The Wankhede Stadium is known as a helper for swing bowlers and batters. Up to 2011, the seaside location assisted bowlers. Though, after the 2011 renovation, the sea breeze effect was reduced a little.

Mostly, the pitch is good for batters, and we can expect high scores. The highest score was 235 at the venue. Also, one interesting fact: Wankhede assists the chasing teams. For example, 4 of 6 recent IPL matches 2022 organised there ended by “won by X wickets”.

  • DC mostly have a losing experience at the venue. They played approximately 15 events there and won only 5 times.
  • KKR have even more upsetting memories. They were there 11 times and won only once (by runs).

It’s interesting. Historically, DC was able to use the venue features better than their contender.

The 28th of April promises to be hot (30°C) and sunny. No rain, but 66% humidity, which is quite high. So, it might be slightly a challenge for batters because the moisture makes bats heavier. The wind will be 19Km/h, NW direction.

Today’s match prediction

Historical stats and current points position vote for KKR. Though, the venue votes for DC. Also, Delhi might want to earn points and get a chance for final events.

Both teams have great players who might fire up the 2022 match. Delhi has young talents. But KKR players already have shown a good playstyle in the current season.

We’d make a bet for KKR winning. That’s our DC vs KKR match prediction. Though, we propose selecting the safest markets to get a guaranteed payment. It’s not the Toss Winner bet; it’s too risky. Instead, it’s better to take Top Batsman or Top Bowler stake. Also, if you know well the playstyles of your fav players, you can make the First Wicket bet.
