KKR vs DC Match Prediction: The Sportsrush presents before you the Match Prediction of 26th match of IPL 2019.
The 26th match of the ongoing 12th season of the Indian Premier League will be played between Kolkata Knight Riders and Delhi Capitals at Kolkata. In what will be the second match between the two teams in IPL 2019, the first one ended up being this season’s first super over encounter.
Remaining unperturbed with a defeat in their last match against Chennai Super Kings, Knight Riders would be looking to come back to winning ways on their home ground. On the other hand, with three wins in six matches, Capitals wouldn’t want their number of losses to exceed their number of wins.
RR vs CSK – What numbers suggest?
In the 24 matches which Kolkata and Delhi have played against each other, Kolkata have won 13 matches as compared to Delhi’s 10 victories. Talking about the matches played at Eden Gardens, Kolkata’s lead exceeds to seven wins against Delhi’s solo win.

While the Head-to-Head number favours the hosts without a doubt, all seems to be not lost for visitors. Talking about the average score against each other, DC betters KKR by 1 run. While DC’s average score against KKR is 151, KKR’s average score against DC is 150.
RR vs CSK – Paper value
There is no hiding to the fact that Delhi Capitals look a formidable unit on paper. Had it not been their inconsistent form and consistent tinkering with their combination, DC could have done better in IPL 2019.
Opening batsman Prithvi Shaw registered a career-best 99 (55) when the last time DC played against KKR. DC would undoubtedly require another such performance from one of their top-order batsman.
While Knight Riders have also been patchy this season, all-rounder Andre Russell’s form has been the game-changer for them. The 30-year old cricketer’s knack of winning matches from nowhere has aided Kolkata on several occasions. Considering his form in association with KKR’s record against DC at Eden Gardens, they look set to register their fifth IPL 2019 win tomorrow.
