DC vs KOL Dream11 Prediction: Delhi Capitals and Kolkata Knight Riders are right next to each other in the points table, No. 2 and No. 3 respectively, but will know going into the match that whichever team loses will also lose a spot in the top-4 for the moment. Yes, we are too early in the tournament and it’s not fair to look at the table as Indian Premier League (IPL) is one of the most unpredictable and closely fought leagues in the world, but being in top-4 gives the team and the team owners a sense of peace. Both DC and KKR have somewhat similar journey so far with two wins and one crushing defeat and it is the bowling unit that is shining for both sides. Delhi are riding high on the South African pair of Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje backed by spinner Amit Mishra, while KKR are enjoying the services of Pat Cummins (excluding the first match) and young speedsters Shivam Mavi and Kamlesh Nagarkoti, backed by spinner Sunil Narine. This match has all the makings of a close one, the one we like!
DC vs KOL Dream11 Team: Match Details
Indian Premier League Season 13
Delhi Capitals vs Kolkata Knight Riders
Date – Saturday, 04 October 2020
Time: 7:30 PM (IST); 6:00 PM (Local Time)
Venue – Sharjah Cricket Stadium, Sharjah
Pitch Report: What do we say about the pitch and playing condition in Sharjah apart from the fact that all four innings here so far have seen scores of 200+ and we expect the trend to continue considering the small boundaries and the long reach of the batsmen at the display. This is a high-scoring ground and batters will be itching to have a go here, especially those out of form.
Team News DC: R Ashwin, who injured his shoulder in the first match, has been practising with the team and is likely to be brought back into the side.
Team News KOL: The Knight Riders are the only team to have no injury concern and have all their options available and it is up to them who they want to play.

DC vs KOL Dream11 Prediction Fantasy Cricket Tips
Shreyas Iyer: The Delhi Capitals captain hasn’t had the impact we expect from him and playing at Sharjah will provide him an option to go berserk. He has all the shots in his repertoire and all he needs to do is play freely. He bats at No. 3 which gives him ample time to enjoy the benefit of targeting the short boundaries.
Strike Rate: 126
Andre Russell: The hard-hitting Jamaican has been subdued so far and we expect him to explode in tonight’s game. He batted at number four in the last match which was a good strategy as you don’t want Russell to be sitting in the dugout while other batsmen try to do what he was born to do. We expect him to also bowl a couple of overs today and that means wicket opportunities. He can make a difference in DC vs KKR Dream11 Prediction teams.
Strike Rate: 184
Shimron Hetmyer: The strong Indian presence in the Delhi top-order means that Hetmyer is left to bat at No. 5. We should not forget the money DC showered on him meaning they want the West Indian involved in the action. Tonight, could be his night as he has license to kill batting at No. 5. If he erupts, he can be the very best. He is a good pick in DC vs KKR Today Match Prediction.
Strike Rate: 120
Eoin Morgan: Captain Morgan is not leading KKR but has been playing a leading role when it comes to batting considering the horror form Dinesh Karthik is going through. Morgan likes taking the attack to the bowlers and innovates brilliantly against spinners.
Strike Rate: 121
Rishabh Pant: Truth be told, Rishabh Pant has looked awkward in the middle and has failed to put up any noticeable performance. Pant made his name playing in IPL and he would be aware of what the other wicket-keeper batsman like Sanju Samson and Ishan Kishan are doing. Sharjah is best suited for his style of batting and he should go big today.
Strike Rate: 159
Shubman Gill: Gill is enjoying his stint as an opener despite the poor form of his batting partner Sunil Narine. Gill has been one of the most consistent batters for KKR and he will be looking to make a big one here.
Strike Rate: 128
