Delhi Capitals vs Kolkata Knight Riders Match 41 – Players to Watch

Prithvi Shaw

The opening batter for the Delhi Capitals got off to a great start in the tournament, but his form seems to have mellowed as the matches have progressed. He has paired well with David Warner and the two have helped Delhi get those consistent starts, but the kind of batsman Prithvi is, we are expecting to see him flex his bat a bit more and put in a big shift in the upcoming game. So far in the tournament, he has amassed 254 runs from 7 games and he will be looking to score a lot more as the tournament progresses.

Kuldeep Yadav

The spin bowler seems to have taken a liking to the Delhi Capitals set up, which explains his brilliant run of form so far in the tournament. He is making a serious claim to one of the spinner spots on the World T20 squads for the upcoming championship and if he can keep up this form, no one will be able to stop his ascension. As far as the IPL 2022 season is concerned, he has scalped 13 wickets from 7 games and he will be looking to scalp a lot more in the remainder of the tournament.

Shreyas Iyer

The Kolkata Knight Riders skipper and steadily grown into his own this season and is currently the leading run-scorer for his team. He was initially part of the Delhi side until the mega auction, where he was signed by KKR as the skipper. He knows most of the players in the Delhi camp and he will use this experience to try and lead his new team to victory. So far in the tournament, he has amassed 248 runs from 8 games and we expect him to score a lot more.

Umesh Yadav

The seasoned veteran has been on a comeback journey of sorts, and while he has leaked runs at times in the tournament, he has been very effective with the ball, having scalped 11 wickets from 8 matches to keep his team firmly in the hunt for a playoff spot. He is facing some serious competition to get a spot on the Indian national team, but a consistent performance this season, will help him make a compelling case.
