IPL 2022 – Kolkata Knight Riders vs Delhi Capitals Match 19 Dream11 Predictions, Lineups and more
The 19th match of the IPL 2022 will see the Kolkata Knight Riders against Delhi Capitals. At one point during the previous encounter against Mumbai Indians, Knight Riders were on the verge of abandoning the contest following Andre Russell’s expulsion. Australian Test skipper Pat Cummins, on the other hand, had other ideas and batted an unbelievable 56* runs off just 15 balls to help his team defeat the Mumbai Indians by 5 wickets with 24 balls remaining. Rahane’s form is a source of concern for the management. Will they impose a severe punishment on him? We must wait and observe.
On the other side, Delhi Capitals were unable to timing the ball well and failed to smash massive sixes in their last encounter against Super Giants, losing by six wickets. This was their second straight defeat in this competition. Anrich Nortje, who started his first match of the season, was ineffective with the ball, which was a major factor in their defeat. Prithvi Shaw is in fantastic form as usual, and he will be their crucial man.
The match is scheduled to take place on the 10th of April, 2022 at the Brabourne Stadium, Mumbai.
Kolkata Knight Riders vs Delhi Capitals Match 19 – Pitch Report
In order for the batsmen to get the most out of their shots, they must play the ball late. Conversely, the bowlers must be extremely exact in their line and lengths, or else they would get smoked out of the park. Following the current fashion, going bowling first is a smart idea.

Kolkata Knight Riders vs Delhi Capitals Match 19 – Players to Watch
The KKR skipper may be getting some of the captaincy elements correct, but when it comes to the batting, he is still to make that big score and get that confidence boost. So far in the 4 matches he has played, Shreyas has scored only 69 runs and looking at his reputation in T20 cricket, the numbers clearly don’t do justice. Hopefully, he can dig deep and get those runs on the board against the Delhi Capitals.
The all-rounder is an absolute veteran of the tournament and is known to be a weapon with the bat and ball. He has shown his capabilities in this tournament, but there is still scope for him to cause a lot more destruction. So far in the tournament, Russell has scored 106 runs and has two wickets to his name.
The Delhi Capitals skipper is yet to set the stage on fire with his explosive batting. There have been occasions where he has shown signs of his real form, but so far, we are yet to see him firing on all cylinders. The Kolkata Knight Riders have some great bowlers in their ranks, giving Rishabh Pant the chance to dig deep and rediscover form.
The crafty bowler is on a journey of rediscovery and so far, it seems to be going great as has already has 6 wickets to his name and the way he is experimenting with techniques makes us believe that he is trying to make a serious claim for one spot on the World T20 squad. India will need a quality spinner in its ranks and Kuldeep Yadav on form is a dangerous proposition.
