Pitch Report

The match is set to take place at ACA-VDCA Cricket Stadium in Vizag. Over the years, it has been known to be a slow wicket. Even in the match between DC and CSK, the batters did not find it easy to score runs. The pacers were brilliant in the game. Given the grass covering, the pacers might get a good carry. Spinners need to be accurate in line and length. The batters need to make the most of the powerplay overs.

Captains: 9

Andre Russell KKR | all

Andre Russell has been at his best as an all-rounder in the ongoing season. With the bat, his finishing helped KKR to beat SRH. In the second game, his bowling was exceptional on a wicket like M Chinnaswamy Stadium.

David Warner DC | bat

David Warner has been the best batter for DC in the league so far. In all three matches, the star batter has scored runs at a good rate. The Southpaw can bat with intent at the top. He will be crucial for the success of DC in the game against KKR.

Sunil Narine KKR | all

Sunil Narine smashed 47 (22) in the game against RCB which helped KKR to seal the game right in the powerplay overs. With the ball, Narine won the match for his side against SRH, where his miserly spell of 1/19 was brilliant on a flat wicket.

Prithvi Shaw DC | BAT

Prithvi Shaw returned to action in the game against CSK and made an impact straightaway. The right-handed batter was aggressive as usual and put the bowlers under pressure. His intent with the bat is always good to watch.

Rinku Singh KKR | BAT

Rinku Singh did not get to bat in the second match and could not have a huge impact in the first match. The Southpaw can make a statement with his batting at Vizag. Rinku has been at his best form in the last year or so.

Ramandeep Singh KKR | bat

Ramandeep Singh played a brilliant cameo in the match against SRH. The right-handed batter came in at 51/4 and smashed 35 (17). He did not get to play against RCB but would be hoping to play well against DC.

Anukul Roy KKR | all

Anukul Roy bowled a miserly spell in the game against RCB. The left-arm off-spinner bowled in accurate line and length. If required, he can also step up as a batter. He can be crucial with the ball given the nature of the wicket at Vizag.
