Dream XI Team KKR vs DC IPL 2019 – Cricket Predictions Tips For Todays IPL Match Kolkata vs Delhi at Eden Gardens, Kolkata: Swashbuckling Andre Russell’s big-hitting prowess will be pitted against Kagiso Rabada’s inch-perfect yorkers for the second time when Kolkata Kight Riders face Delhi Capitals in a return-leg fixture of the IPL on Friday. Away from the match, the spotlight will also fall on where former KKR and India captain Sourav Ganguly sits during the match.
Ganguly will be a ‘visitor’ at his ‘home’ ground of Eden Gardens as he is currently donning the advisor’s hat in the Delhi franchise, which has drawn ‘conflict-of-interest’ charges against him. Second in the IPL table with eight points from six matches, KKR’s season so far has been a Russell show with the Jamaican amassing 257 runs from five innings, out of which 150 have come in sixes alone. His average has been 128.50 while the strike rate is a mind-boggling 212.39, something that has left the opposition clueless on how to stop him.
Mahendra Singh Dhoni did it with perfect execution by stranding Dre-Russ (as Russell is known to KKR fans) with his spin-heavy attack en route to handing KKR a crushing seven-wicket defeat in Chennai in their last match. KKR’s second defeat this season has been at the hands of Delhi Capitals in a dramatic Super Over finish at Kotla with Rabada winning the battle against Russell.
FINAL SCORE: DC (180/3 in 18.5 overs) beat KKR (178/7) by 7 wickets at Edens.

Dream 11 Predictions Tips
Wicketkeeping: It will be a tricky choice to pick between the experienced Dinesh Karthik and highly talented Rishabh Pant. But Pant’s hitting abilities and his power give him a slight edge over a little rusty Karthik. He will remain the safest option to be picked up for the keeper’s role.
Batting: Both Kolkata and Delhi oast of some of the biggest names of world cricket ranging from – Chris Lynn, Shikhar Dhawan, Prithvi Shaw, Shreyas Iyer, Nitish Rana and Robin Uthappa. As the Eden track is known to remain good for batting and bowling throughout the match – it would be ideal to pick batsmen who can score a little too freely. In the batting order, the likes of Dhawan, Shaw, Iyer, Uthappa, Rana and Ingram would be a good choice.
Bowling: Keeping the nature of Kolkata track, it would be ideal to pick Sunil Narine, Kuldeep Yadav, Kagiso Rabada, Prasidh Krishna.
All-Rounder – It’s a no-brainer keeping in mind Andre Russell’s form, no individual will even dare to drop him from his/her fantasy XI.
