Delhi Capitals vs Kolkata Knight Riders Betting Tips

Delhi Capitals will face Kolkata Knight Riders in match 25 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 in Ahmedabad on Thursday.

The home team in this fixture will be coming with full confidence after securing four wins in the competition after five matches played.

Therefore, the coaching staff will be hoping to see the players continue their performances and help the team in inching closer to securing a spot in the playoffs.

On the other hand, the Knight Riders will be coming in this with a relatively feel-good factor after registering a much-needed win in their previous match against Punjab Kings at the same venue on Monday.

The team management will be hoping that the players will build on that performance and produce another good show in the match against an in-form team like the Capitals.

Both teams have competed 25 times in the history of the IPL where Kolkata have a better record with 14 wins compared to Delhi’s 11 victories.

However, in the recent past, the Capitals’ have proved to be a more dominant force as they’ve won four out of the last five fixtures against the Knight Riders.

Delhi Capitals Form and Team news: 

After having a good start in the competition, the Delhi Capitals are unlikely to make any significant changes in the playing XI for the match against Kolkata Knight Riders.

However, with veteran off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin withdrawing from the competition to be with his family who is suffering from coronavirus, they are likely to replace him with leg-spinner Amit Mishra.

The most pleasing thing for the team management will be the form of veteran opener Shikhar Dhawan who is the most in-form batsman in the competition after having scored 259 runs in five innings at an average of 51.80.

In the batting department, the team will be depending on the likes of Dhawan, young opener Prithvi Shaw, captain Rishabh Pant and Australia’s veteran batsman Steve Smith to score the bulk of the runs.

On the bowling front, the onus will be on the likes of South Africa’s star pacer Kagiso Rabada, Avesh Khan, and Amit Mishra to produce timely breakthroughs.

Kolkata Knight Riders Form and Team News: 

Despite securing a much-needed win against Punjab Kings, things are still not looking rosy for the Kolkata Knight Riders but they are unlikely to make any significant changes in the playing XI who recently managed to secure a much-needed win.

Captain Eoin Morgan’s return to form will be a pleasing sign for the team management and he will be accompanied by the likes of young Shubman Gill, Nitish Rana, Rahul Tripathi, veteran wicketkeeper-batsman Dinesh Karthik and explosive all-rounder Andre Russell to score the bulk of the runs.

On the bowling front, the onus will be on the likes of pacers Pat Cummins, young Shivam Mavi, Prasidh Krishna, and veteran off-spinner Sunil Narine to provide timely breakthroughs.

Our Tipster’s Angle

Despite having a very different points tally, both teams are coming in this match after securing a positive result in their respective previous outings.

But looking at both team’s recent fixtures as well as their strengths on the paper, the prediction is for Delhi Capitals to secure another win on Thursday.

Tip 1: Prithvi Shaw to continue his merry ways with the bat

The rookie opener has shown consistency with the bat at the top of the innings. The 22-year old notched up a crucial half-century to see Delhi Capitals beat Sunrisers via super-over eliminator.

In five matches played, Prithvi Shaw has accumulated 166 runs at an average of 33.20. He will take heart from the fact that he holds excellent numbers against Kolkata. In four matches against Kolkata, Shaw has scored 241 runs at an average of 60.25 with three half-centuries to his name.

Given his decent performances this season, we are expecting Prithvi Shaw to score 30 runs or more in this [email protected].

Tip 2: Prasidh Krishna’s consistency with the new-ball for Kolkata

Pacer Prasidh Krishna has been the premier bowler for the side this season. In the previous game played against Punjab, Prasidh Krishna was the standout bowler on display and claimed 3 for 30 in his four overs.

With eight wickets to his name, Prasidh Krishna is currently Kolkata’s leading wicket-taker in the competition.

Given his wicket-taking ability with the old ball, we expect Prasidh Krishna to take two wickets or [email protected].


Delhi Capitals to register a thumping win over Kolkata Knight Riders.

  1. Prithvi Shaw to score 30 runs or more in this contest- Delhi Capitals @2.50
  2. Prasidh Krishna to take two wickets or more- Kolkata Knight [email protected]
