Match 41: Overall Prediction
Both teams are looking forward to cementing their spots in the top four for clear qualification to the playoffs. While Delhi Capitals have already made it clear with their intentions that they are the team to stop, Kolkata Knight Riders have looked a bit wobbly while playing other opponents. Surprisingly, Delhi Capitals are just a win away from complete qualification in the playoffs.
On the flip side, Kolkata Knight Riders need to fight a bit more to make their qualification guaranteed. The players from Delhi Capitals have worked together to declare their might while the batsmen from Kolkata Knight Riders have seemed quite temperamental and quite inconsistent when it has come to putting up big targets or chasing big ones. The bowlers have played their part but they need some sturdy support from the batsmen to make qualifications clear and solid.
The Cricbro match prediction for today's IPL match points towards Kolkata Knight Riders' win since they have a different level of motivation whereby they are the team to halt Delhi Capitals' winning run as well as bounce back from their previous defeat.
