The IPL 2022 table is pretty cramped with eight teams battling it out for a top four spot and a place in the Play-Offs. This is something that we expected to see at the start of the Indian Premier League because all of the teams are quite evenly matched, and anyone can beat anyone on their day. The 41st match of this great competition will see the Delhi Capitals take on the Kolkata Knight Riders, and below you will be able to see our prediction of who will win the game.

Delhi Capitals Team Preview

The Delhi Capitals are currently sitting in sixth place in the table, with three wins from the 7 games that they have played. At this current moment, they are four points off of a Play-Off spot, but they do have the advantage of having a really good Net Run Rate of +0.715, which could be worth an extra point when all the Group Stage matches have been played.

In their last match, they took on the Rajasthan Royals and were met by a majestic Jos Buttler, who smashed his third century of the competition. The RR made 222 from their 20 overs, and the DC batsman gave it a very good shot at chasing down this mammoth total, but they ended up falling 15 runs short in the end.

The top batsman for the DC was Rishabh Pant, who scored 44 runs from the 24 balls that he faced, while the likes of Prithvi Shaw and David Warner chipped in with 37 from 27 balls and 28 from 14 balls. Kuldeep Yadav kept the score ticking over with 37 from 24, while Rovman Powell kept the hope alive with a brisk 36 from 15 balls. However, despite a valiant effort, they could not chase down the huge total.

It is fair to say that online cricket betting has become very popular, and one of the main reasons for this is the fact that there are just so many different markets that you can bet on when betting on cricket. One of the markets that we really enjoy is the Top Batsman market as the rewards for getting your prediction right can be very good to say the least.

So, if we were to recommend a DC batsman for this type of market, who would we suggest you put your money on? Well, we would go for Warner as he has been showing his immense talent as of late. He has played 5 matches in the 2022 IPL, and he has scored 219 runs at an average of 54.75. He is one of those players that the opposition bowlers will be looking to get out as quickly as possible because he can take the game away from you in a handful of overs.

Conceding 222 runs in 20 overs is never ideal, but sometimes you just have to take your hat off to the batsmen on the opposing team. The DC did not bowl all that badly, but they just came up against three batsmen who just so happened to be at the top of their game. All of the DC bowlers were carted around the park on Friday evening, with the most expensive being Yadav, who conceded 40 runs from the 3 overs that he bowled. Khaleel Ahmed was also particularly expensive, conceding 47 runs from his 4 overs, although he did pick up a wicket.

When we are IPL betting, we also like to try and predict the Top Bowler for a side as there is always good odds on offer for such a market. So, when it comes to the DC bowling attack, who do we recommend will be the pick of the bowlers against the KKR? Well, we would put our money on Yadav as he has been their best bowler throughout the tournament so far - he has picked up 13 wickets from 7 matches with an average of 17.38 and an economy of 8.48.

Do we think that they will make any changes to their playing XI? Well, we think that Axar Patel is walking on thin ice. He currently has a bowling average of 60.00 and has scored 79 runs in five matches. Mitchell Marsh has been missing after catching Covid, but he should have recovered in time for this match. If he has, then we think he might take Patel's place in the side.

Kolkata Knight Riders Team Preview

The Kolkata Knight Riders were once sitting at the top of the table, but they have lost their last 4 games and have dropped down to 7th place. Despite this slump, they are still firmly in contention for a Play-Off spot, sitting just 4 points behind the Lucknow Super Giants in 4th.

In their last match, they took on the Gujurat Titans and lost the game by just 8 runs. The GT won the toss and, to the surprise of many, opted to bat first instead of fielding. From their 20 overs, they managed to score 156, with Hardik Pandya being the top scorer with 67 from 49 balls. The pick of the bowlers for the KKR was Andre Russel, who picked out 4 wickets for 5 runs from the solitary over that he bowled. Tim Southee, also bowled really well, picking up 3 wickets for 24 from his 4 overs.

The majority of IPL betting sites will give you the option of betting on the Top Bowler, and this is a market we really enjoy. Even if you make a prediction for this market and get it wrong, you will still have plenty of entertainment cheering your chosen player on. So, who do we think will get the most wickets for the KKR against the DC? Well, we would be really tempted to put our cash on Southee - from his 3 matches, he has picked up 8 wickets at an average of 10.00 and an economy of 6.67.

Needing 157 to win the match, the KKR batsmen would have been quite confident that they would be able to chase it down, but they got off to a really poor start and found themselves at 34/4 with just 6 overs on the board. When you lose wickets that quickly, you will most likely go on to lose the match. The pick of the batsman for the KKR was Russell, who scored 48 runs from the 25 balls that he faced. Despite their loss of early wickets, the KKR still had a chance of winning entering the final over of the match, but when Russell was dismissed by Alzarri Joseph, the game was


If you want to make an IPL prediction regarding the top scorer for KKR against the DC, then who would we opt for? Well, we would be tempted to put our money on Shreyas Iyer, who has scored 248 runs from 8 games at an average of 35.43. He is their leading scorer in the 2022 IPL, and we would back him to perform well once again.

Do we think that they will make any changes to their starting XI for this match? Well, Shivam Mavi has not been covering himself in glory recently, so we would not be surprised to see him replaced. He has played 3 matches and has picked up 3 wickets at an average of 48.00 and an economy of 10.29. Maybe they will opt to replace him with an all-rounder such as Mohammad Nabi so they also have a deeper batting depth.

Toss Prediction

For the first half of the IPL 2022, the coin toss played a rather big part in deciding who would win the match, since the team batting second had a big advantage because of the dew factor. However, it now seems that the dew is becoming less of a problem. Out of the last 10 games, the team that won the toss have been victorious on 6 occasions, while earlier on in the competition, the team that won the coin toss won 6 games in a row. Therefore, it seems to have evened itself out a little bit.

However, despite this, there still seems to be a bit of an advantage to batting second, so our toss prediction for this match is that the captain that wins the toss will decide to field first, just in case dew becomes more of an issue again.

Pitch Conditions

This match will be played at the Wankhede Stadium, where the average score batting first in this season's IPL stands at 167 runs. The team that has batted second at this venue has won 57% of the time, which is another reason why we feel that the captain that wins the coin toss will decide to field first. The team that bats first will be looking to put around 180 runs on the board, so that they can put a bit of scoreboard pressure on their opponents.

Our DC vs KKR Betting Tips

This match today really is one which could end up going either way. This is highlighted by the fact that many bookies have given both teams the same odds of winning this match. However, we never like to sit on the fence here, so the team that we predict will win is the Delhi Capitals. Why is this our match prediction today? Well, it is because we feel that the DC are in better form than their opponents, and have a better batting line-up.
