DC has won one of their three matches. They have a total of two points and a net run rate of -0.016 and are placed 7th in the points table. After two back-to-back losses against Punjab Kings and Rajasthan Royals, Delhi Capitals bagged their first win of the season against CSK. They posted a daunting total of 191 and their bowlers backed up their batters with a brilliant bowling display restricting the CSK batters from chasing down the target. They got the team combination perfect by bringing in Prithvi Shaw who made an immediate impact.

On the other hand, KKR is currently in the second spot in the points table. With a total of two wins to their name in as many matches, KKR has a total of four points and a net run rate of +1.047 to their name. They were lucky to win the first game but came back strongly in the match against RCB. KKR are still on the move playing away from home and this is another important match for the side. They have lost the last three games against Delhi Capitals and will need proper planning and implementation to keep their winning run this season.
