IPL Match 25
Time: 7:30 PM IST
Date: 29 April 2021
Venue: Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad
Delhi Capitals did a lot of things right in its match against RCB but it still lost the match. A large part of the blame has to fall on the feet of Rishab Pant who played an uncharacteristic inning of 58 from 48 deliveries. He struggled throughout and was unable to find the boundaries when needed.
However, that can happen even to the best of the players and in general, DC has been in pretty decent form. We also thought they got the team selection right in the previous match. They got back Ishant Sharma in place of Lalit Yadav and that made the bowling attack a lot more effective. DC is moving in the right direction and we don’t think the loss in the previous match should be seen as something to be worried about.
An excellent bowling performance in the previous match was enough to get KKR the victory even though they suffered a batting collapse while chasing. KKR restricted Punjab Kings to just 123 on the best batting surface in the entire competition.
There are some clear weaknesses in the squad but maybe it is a lack of depth in the squad that is preventing Eoin Morgan from making the changes in the team.
Andre Russell, Dinesh Karthik, and Pat Cummins have one good inning to their name making the entire batting lineup a bit wobbly. KKR seems to be better suited to play at the bouncier wicket in Ahmedabad and this is why they could give DC a run for its money in this match.

The pitch at Ahmedabad has not been as good for batting as we expected it to be. There has been some assistance for the seamers starting out and the ball seems to stick in the pitch first up but it starts to get better for scoring runs as the match progresses. The spinners are finding it tough to have much of an impact at this venue and the seamers are a better choice from a betting perspective.
Possible Playing XI
Shikhar Dhawan, Prithvi Shaw, Steve Smith, Rishabh Pant (C & WK), Marcus Stoinis, Shimron Hetmyer, Axar Patel, Amit Mishra, Ishant Sharma, Kagiso Rabada, Avesh Khan
Kolkata Knight Riders:
Nitish Rana, Shubman Gill, Rahul Tripathi, Sunil Narine, Eoin Morgan (c), Dinesh Karthik (wk), Andre Russell, Pat Cummins, Prasidh Krishna, Varun Chakravarthy, Shivam Mavi
