Kolkata Knight Riders vs Delhi Capitals, Match 41: Fantasy Preview

Here are a few tips that might help you create your fantasy team for Match 41 of IPL 2021 between the KKR and DC

After an agonizing last-ball loss to Chennai Super Kings on Sunday, a resurgent Kolkata Knight Riders will look to carry on their fight for a top-four finish on Tuesday when they face off against second-placed Delhi Capitals. DC, meanwhile, thumped a lackluster Rajasthan Royals by 33 runs in their previous encounter and will look to continue their bid for the top spot having won all of their encounters in the second leg so far.

HEAD-TO-HEAD

Overall: Matches – 26 | KKR – 14 wins | DC – 12 wins

Last five matches: KKR – 1 win | DC– 4 wins

SUGGESTED TEAM

While you could go for the above team, you also have the option of choosing your team from Cricket.com’s Fantasy Research Centre. You can use this tool to build your team with the help of algorithms. Based on your preferences, the platform will guide you through creating the ideal fantasy XI.

GROUND DETAILS

The previous match at Sharjah, the smallest of all three venues, produced a low-scoring thriller between Sunrisers Hyderabad and Punjab Kings where a flat pitch and a sluggish outfield made life difficult for the batters. While it might not be an encore of that game, it is highly likely that bowlers will have an upper hand in Match 41. The average first innings score is 193 in the past two IPLs at the venue, where pacers have claimed 71.8% of the wickets at a strike rate of 19.5 deliveries. Spinners, meanwhile, have struck every 27.4 balls at a marginally better economy of 8.2. With two in-form sides in the fray, you can make your picks with two pacers and two spinners alongside an all-rounder who bowl either for the balance.

SUGGESTED CAPTAIN

Rahul Tripathi has been one of the key reasons alongside new sensation Venkatesh Iyer that propelled KKR's revival in the second leg. He is the third highest scorer in the second phase with 119 runs from three matches and a superb strike rate of 158. His current form means, he will once shoulder the team's batting hopes.

Our Criclytics player projection predicts, Tripathi could score 40-60 runs against DC

X-FACTORS

Anrich Nortje has been on the money ever since returning to the DC fold for the second leg. He has been hitting the right lengths and has been blindingly fast which has put the batsmen on the spot. So far, he has claimed four wickets from two games at a remarkable economy of 3.8.

Our Criclytics player projection predicts, Nortje could pick up 2-3 wickets against KKR

Axar Patel is the more in-form spinner for DC in the season as he struck every 16 balls. He has made his arm-ball extremely lethal which has troubled some of the best in the business. The importance of Powerplay in Sharjah means Patel will be the go-to bowler for Rishabh Pant.

Our Criclytics player projection predicts, Patel could score 8-12 runs and pick up 2-3 against KKR

Sunil Narine almost dragged KKR to the Super Over against CSK if not for Deepak Chahar single off the final ball. The West Indies spinner is calm under pressure situations and remains difficult to read with his release points and unexpected turn.

Our Criclytics player projection predicts, Narine could pick up 2-3 wickets and score 18-26 runs against DC

PREDICTED XIS

Kolkata Knight Riders: Eoin Morgan, Venkatesh Iyer, Rahul Tripathi, Shubman Gill, Sunil Narine, Andre Russell, Dinesh Karthik, Lockie Ferguson, Prasidh Krishna, Shivam Mavi, Varun Chakravarthy.

Delhi Capitals: Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant, Shimron Hetmyer, Axar Patel, Lalit Yadav, Ravichandran Ashwin,  Anrich Nortje, Avesh Khan, Kagiso Rabada.
