Uthappa and Iyer tips – Daredevils vs. Knight Riders IPL betting

Delhi v Kolkata

Delhi v KolkataFriday, April 27, 2018 – 8pm IST – Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium, Delhi.

Delhi Daredevils will be keen to make amends of their poor form when they take on Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in the 26th game of Indian Premier League at Delhi.

Delhi has been a sheer disappointment so far this season. The side led by Gautam Gambhir have lost five games out of six.

From top-order issues to poor bowling performances, Delhi have completely looked out of sorts.

Delhi made changes in their last game against Kolkata. Prithvi Shaw replaced Jason Roy at the top of the innings and produced a fiery little knock.

Australia all-rounder Glenn Maxwell once again failed to produce a good score for the side and might face an axe in the next game.

Captain Gambhir has struggled to find form and his repeated failures puts a lot of pressure on the likes of Rishabh Pant and Shreyas Iyer.

Pant is the only in-form batsman in the lineup and shown some sort of consistency with the bat in the games played so far, whereas Iyer played well against Kings XI Punjab and produced a crucial half-century.

The big worry for Delhi has been the form of all-rounders Chris Morris and Daniel Christian, who have not produced runs for the side, even though the latter chipped in with good show with the ball.

The inclusion of pace bowler Liam Plunkett in place of Mohammad Shami definitely worked for the team as he picked three wickets and conceded only 17 runs from his four overs in the last match.

The 21-year old Avesh Khan has certainly impressed everyone with his pace in the game against Kings XI Punjab.

On the other hand, KKR suffered a comprehensive defeat at the hands of Punjab in their previous match.

Opener Chris Lynn played well and scored 74 runs of 41 balls. Nitish Rana has been a big plus for Kolkata so far this season as he has chipped in with notable performances with bat and ball.

Captain Dinesh Karthik is the leading run scorer for the side and is the most consistent run-getter. All-rounder Andre Russell has played some vital knocks for the side and provided impetus at the back end of the innings.

Pace duo Tom Curran and Shivam Mavi have been decent for the side, whereas Kuldeep Yadav, Sunil Narine and Piyush Chawla complied a more than potent spin attack for Kolkata.

Shreyas Iyer betting

Shreyas Iyer has looked in good touch with the bat and chipped in with consecutive half-centuries for Delhi. Iyer needs to continue his good form with the bat if Delhi wants to end their winless streak in the competition.

Robin Uthappa betting specials

Robin Uthappa has produced regular scores for the side but has yet to score a half-century in this year’s competition. The right-handed batsman will be eyeing a big score in this game for Kolkata.
