Winner KKR vs DC Prediction

Both teams lost their previous game and they will be desperate for a win in this match.
Kolkata failed to chase an average total despite of a marathon knock from Andre Russell.
Their batting attack hasn’t been consistent which is destroying their IPL 2022 campaign.
Meanwhile, the batting lineup of Delhi Capitals is performing well and they almost chased
down the huge 223 runs target against Rajasthan in their last match. They need to forget the
no-ball controversy of that match and focus on their next game. The team combination of
Delhi Capitals is also better than the Kolkata Knight Riders
Hence, we predict that Delhi Capitals will beat Kolkata Knight Riders in match 41 of IPL


The match is scheduled to start at 07:00 PM IST. Star Sports network will broadcast the
game on television, and its live streaming will also be available on Disney+ Hotstar.
