With Dhawan and Shaw in good form, DC have a solid opening combination. If they give them a good start, there are increased chances of winning. While Rishabh Pant struggled for timing for most of his innings, Hetmyer’s quick fifty was a big positive and showed how deep they bat. Bowlers have been excellent and have bowled collectively well throughout the season with Avesh Khan the pick of all.

Openers’ inconsistent performances have seriously affected KKR this season. With Gill continuously misfiring and Russell not at his best, the pressure comes on the likes of Morgan and Tripathi to perform. Rahul Tripathi seems to be the only man to score consistently. Bowlers have done well for most of the part but death bowling problems seem to continue.
