Captain Nitish Rana has confirmed Andre Russell is all fit and reading to go while they have not given us an update regarding Khaleel Ahmed’s hamstring strain.
DC is most likely to name three overseas players in their starting XI while we predict Prithvi Shaw and Mustafizur Rahman to be their top options for Impact Players.
In the KKR lineup, we expect Jason Roy to finally get a go and replace under-performing Rahmanullah Gurbaz. N Jagadeesan will be a good wicket-keeping option in-case Gurbaz is left out tonight. Venkatesh Iyer and Suyash Sharma are their top options for Impact player swaps.
