DC vs KKR: Dream 11 Fantasy Tips & Match Preview | IPL 2019

DC vs KKR Match Preview – The Feroz Shah Kotla is all set to host another game of the world’s biggest domestic league here on Saturday.

The 10th match of IPL 2019 will be played between Delhi Capitals (DC) and Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) tonight at 08:00 PM local time.

Shreyas Iyer-led Delhi Capitals made a good start to the season by registering an amazing win over the 3-times champion Mumbai Indians (MI) at the Wankhede Stadium.

However, the crowd at Feroz Shah Kotla was not lucky enough to see their favourites win their first home game of the season against the defending champions Chennai Super Kings (CSK).

The Delhi Franchise had beaten KKR at the same venue, when both the teams played against each other in the previous season of the IPL. The DC fans will once again have the same expectations from their team to win tonight against King Khan’s side.

Now, if we look at the current stats of this season, KKR is at the top of the points table by winning both the games it played till now.

Sunil Narine treads a reckless route when he bats and his bowling skills are on the wane. Thus, making him captain or vice-captain could be risky.
