Two teams who are getting magnetically attracted towards the bottom half of the table, Delhi Capitals (DC) and Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) will be locking horns in match number 41 of IPL 2022.
The Rishabh Pant-led side is coming off a painful loss to the Rajasthan Royals in their previous match, and their season has been hit and misses so far. With three wins in seven games, they are now in seventh place in the standings.
The Kolkata Knight Riders, on the other hand, have lost their last four games and are desperate for a win in their upcoming games. The Shreyas Iyer-led side has failed to field their strongest playing XI, and the top order has been unable to establish good opening stands, which has been a long-standing worry. With Venkatesh Iyer struggling with runs, Ajinkya Rahane may get another chance. Currently, KKR are sitting at the 8th spot in the points table with 6 points in 8 games.
DC vs KKR – Match Details
Venue: Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai
Date & Time: 28th April at 7:30 PM IST and Local Time
Live Streaming: Star Sports Network and Disney+Hotstar
Teams chasing the game have won the first four games at the Wankhede Stadium. That has since been turned on its head, as the last five games have all been won by teams defending a target.
Moreover, the track at Wankhede has been producing a lot of high-scoring games in the last few matches. Because of the small boundaries and the possibility of dew, the captain who wins the toss will choose to bowl first.

At the top of the order, Prithvi Shaw has scored 254 runs at an average of 36 and a strike rate of 164 in seven matches.
Delhi Capitals: Prithvi Shaw, David Warner, Mitchell Marsh, Rishabh Pant, Rovman Powell, Lalit Yadav, Axar Patel, Shardul Thakur, Kuldeep Yadav, Mustafizur Rahman, Khaleel Ahmed.
Kolkata Knight Riders: Venkatesh Iyer, Sam Billings/Aaron Finch, Shreyas Iyer, Nitish Rana, Rinku Singh/Sheldon Jackson, Andre Russell, Sunil Narine, Shivam Mavi, Umesh Yadav, Tim Southee/Pat Cummins, Varun Chakravarthy.
