KKR vs DC IPL 2024 Match 47 Match-Ups: Top 5 Player Battles to Watch Out For

Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) will take on Delhi Capitals (DC) in the 47th match of IPL 2024 at Eden Gardens Stadium in Kolkata.

KKR has had a successful campaign so far, winning 5 of their 8 games, while DC has recovered from early setbacks, winning 4 of their last 5 games. However, KKR holds a psychological advantage going into this game after defeating DC by 106 runs in the reverse fixture earlier this season.

Before the highly-awaited game begins, let’s look at five interesting matchups to watch in KKR vs DC.

  1. Rishabh Pant vs Andre Russell

Pant has been in sublime form in IPL 2024 so far, taking bowlers to task consistently. However, the star wicket-keeper-batsman will be cautious of Russell when they face each other on Monday, as the Caribbean medium-pacer has kept him in check, dismissing him three times despite conceding runs at a strike rate of 196.15.

Runs 51
Balls 26
Dismissals 3
Average 17.00
Strike-Rate 196.15

2. Shreyas Iyer vs Khaleel Ahmed

Shreyas Iyer has looked good with the bat so far, but his match-ups against left-arm pacer Khaleel have favored DC, as the medium-pacer has dismissed him twice after conceding just 25 runs off 20 balls.

Runs 25
Balls 20
Dismissals 2
Average 12.50
Strike-Rate 125.00

3. Prithvi Shaw vs Varun Chakaravarthy

Shaw has the power to provide a quick start in the powerplay phase, but using Chakaravarthy early in the powerplay may trouble Shaw, as the right-handed batter has been dismissed three times after scoring 37 runs off 25 balls against Varun.

Runs 37
Balls 25
Dismissals 3
Average 12.33
Strike-Rate 148.00

4. Andre Russell vs Kuldeep Yadav

Russell’s ability with the bat needs no introduction, but the batter has been well kept in check by Kuldeep, conceding just 4 runs off 10 balls and dismissing him once in the process. With Russell’s role to score runs quickly, seeing how he copes with Kuldeep in the middle overs on Monday will be interesting.

Runs 4
Balls 10
Dismissals 1
Average 4.00
Strike-Rate 40.00

5. Sunil Narine vs Kuldeep Yadav

Rishabh Pant will use Kuldeep as a weapon against the in-form man in the early overs. The left-arm wrist-spinner has dismissed Narine twice after giving just four runs in three balls.

Runs 4
Balls 3
Dismissals 2
Average 2.00
Strike-Rate 133.33
