KKR vc DC: IPL 2021: Match Prediction
DC has one of the very well balanced batting and bowling units in the tournament with a lot of quality players. Their big weakness has been the absence of a quality all-rounder who can perform well equally in both departments. KKR has a great depth in their batting unit with batters coming in at No.6 to 8 capable of making quick-fire 20s & 30s. Their spin duo has been their biggest strength. Prasidh Krishna and Andre Russell have went for few runs in the last 2 matches. It will be a close game but we expect Delhi Capitals to win this match.
