DC vs KOL injury update

DC Injury update DC have no fresh injury concerns reported ahead of the match.

Key players David Warner is the lone consistent runscorer for the side with three half-centuries in IPL 2023. Manish Pandey and Axar Patel have scored fifties recently as well. Mitchell Marsh’s bat is yet to fire but the Australian all-rounder took two wickets in the last game while Kuldeep Yadav found a rhythm with the ball as well with two wickets.

Out of form Prithvi Shaw is having a horrendous run with 34 runs in the last five innings, including two ducks. Yash Dhull hasn’t take his chances with the bat either. Despite being economical in the last game, Anrich Nortje has gone three matches now without a wicket.

KOL injury update There are no new injury concerns reported for the Kolkata Knight Riders camp ahead of the match.

Key players Left-handed trio of Nitish Rana, Rinku Singh, and Venkatesh Iyer are in rich form with the latest also scoring a century in the last game. Their good forms limit batting opportunities for the lower order which consists of hard-hitters in Andre Russell and Shardul Thakur.

Thakur’s bowling hasn’t been expensive with the ball while Russell is only used as a death-bowl bowler if and when the need arises. Rookie spinner Suyash Sharma has made an impact by taking six wickets in four games and outperformed Sunil Narine and Varun Chakratvarthy in the last game.

Out of form Wicketkeeper-batter Rahmanullah Gurbaz’s form has dropped since scoring runs initially and may struggle to keep his spot in the team in the coming games with Litton Das waiting for an opportunity.

DC vs KOL pitch report

Arun Jaitley Stadium’s pitch may feel homely to Kolkata Knight Riders’ spinners due to its slow nature. The boundary dimensions and quick outfield come to the aid of the batters but anything above 170 could be a good total to defend on the surface.
