DC vs KKR | 16th Match | Indian Premier League 2024

Get ready for the electrifying clash at the ACA-VDCA Cricket Stadium in Visakhapatnam as the home team, Delhi, squares off against Kolkata in match number 16 of the Indian T20 League. With both sides riding high on winning momentum, this promises to be a thrilling contest that will set the stadium ablaze.

Delhi enters the fray buoyed by their recent vic‐ tory over defending champions Chennai, a win that followed two initial setbacks in the tourna‐ ment.

Against all odds, skipper Rishabh Pant orchestrated a stunning start with the new opening duo of David Warner and Prithvi Shaw, who stitched together a formidable 93-run partnership.

Pant himself showcased his batting prowess with a well-crafted half-century, guiding his team to a commendable total of 191 runs.

Delhi’s bowlers, spearheaded by Khaleel Ahmed and Mukesh Kumar, then put up a stellar performance to defend the target, clinching a resounding 20-run vic‐ tory.

With consistent displays and meticulous rectification of errors, Delhi has emerged as a for‐ midable force in the league.

Meanwhile, Kolkata has emerged as one of the two unbeaten sides in the tournament, exhibiting champion-like performances in both of their previous encounters.

Despite a challenging outing for their bowlers at the Chinnaswamy Stadium against Bengaluru, Andre Russell and Harshit Rana displayed nerves of steel to restrict the opposition to 182 runs.

In the chase, the openers, Phil Salt and Sunil Narine blazed away with an explosive 86-run partner‐ ship, setting the stage for victory.

The Iyer duo of Venkatesh and Shreyas then continued the on‐ slaught to chase down the target with 19 balls to spare. While their batting unit has been stellar, Kolkata will need to tighten their bowling to complement their formidable batting lineup.

With both teams brimming with confidence and momentum, this encounter is poised to be a nail-bit‐ ing affair. Who will emerge victorious? Only time will reveal the answer as the battle unfolds on the field!

What to expect: Another graveyard for the spinners? Bharat Arun isn’t too sure. “The pitch keeps changing like the weather,” he said on the eve of the match.

It’s likely that Vizag serves up another pitch where pacers call the shots; it was something that the home side definitely enjoyed and would want another bite of. It will be interesting to see what DC decide to do if they win the toss. Against CSK, they chose to bat, the second favourite option in all of limited-overs cricket, let alone IPL, but Pravin Amre reckoned it had a lot to do with asking CSK to chase.

Head to Head: DC 15 – 16 KKR

Team Watch: DC vs KKR | 16th Match | Indian Premier League 2024

Delhi Capitals

Injury/Availability: As confirmed by Ricky Ponting last time, Jhye Richardson is fit and available. Ishant Sharma made a successful return from his ankle injury in the last game and the only question that remains is around Shai Hope, who missed the last two matches with a back spasm.

Tactics/Matchups: While the last match for DC came on the back of top-order contributions, they have a soft underbelly when it comes to the middle overs.

So far this season, they have lost the most wickets (10), have the worst average (20.30) and the second-worst scoring rate (7.52) between overs 7 to 15. That’s an area they would want to amp up their efforts in, especially against KKR.

Probable XI: 

  1. Prithvi Shaw,
  2. David Warner,
  3. Mitchell Marsh,
  4. Rishabh Pant(w/c),
  5. Tristan Stubbs,
  6. Abishek Porel,
  7. Axar Patel,
  8. Anrich Nortje,
  9. Mukesh Kumar,
  10. Ishant Sharma,
  11. Khaleel Ahmed.
  12. [Impact Sub: Sumit Kumar/Rasikh Dar Salam]

Kolkata Knight Riders

Injury/Availability: Venkatesh Iyer pulled his back in the last match but Bharat Arun said that the batter is “fit and raring to go”.

Tactics/Matchups:Don’t be too surprised to see Varun Chakaravarthy bowling to Prithvi Shaw in the powerplay; the spinner has a favourable matchup against the opener which reads 37 runs, 25 balls, 3 dismissals.

That said, KKR would like their spinners to step up. They have expectedly bowled the most overs of spin this year but conceded runs at an economy rate of 8.78 while managing to pick only three wickets.

On this Vizag pitch, seamer Vaibhav Arora, who took the new ball last season but hasn’t got a game this year, could come into the picture on the Vizag pitch.

Probable XI: 

  1. Philip Salt(w),
  2. Venkatesh Iyer,
  3. Shreyas Iyer(c),
  4. Ramandeep Singh,
  5. Rinku Singh,
  6. Andre Russell,
  7. Sunil Narine,
  8. Mitchell Starc,
  9. Anukul Roy,
  10. Harshit Rana,
  11. Varun Chakaravarthy.
  12. [Impact Sub: Suyash Sharma/Vaibhav Arora]

Did you know?

DC have had the better of KKR in this cycle, winning all three matches between the sides since 2022

Nine wickets fell to pace and only two to spin in the DC-CSK match at Vizag two nights ago

Varun Chakaravarthy bowled his most expensive spell in IPL in KKR’s opening game against SRH, when he conceded 55 and followed it up with a two-over spell of 0/20 against RCB

Anrich Nortje has figures of 1/48 and 0/43 in his two appearances in IPL 2024 so far extending his poor record in the tournament in India.

What they said:

“We are carrying a lot of momentum and also great energy in the team. There’s nothing like success. We totally trust in our plans and we are up for it.” – Bharat Arun, KKR bowling coach.

“CSK also came with two wins, but we played our best cricket. It’s not about what they are coming up with, but it’s about how we are playing and will focus on what best we can give. We also look to finish on a winning note as it will be our last game in Vizag.” -Pravin Amre, DC assistant coach
