Delhi Capitals failed to play competitive cricket against Kolkata Knight Riders as the bowling was very average in this match by DC bowlers. They need to focus on their weak areas as early as they can otherwise it could be too late to make a comeback in the tournament. Skipper Rishabh Pant played quite responsible cricket but it wasn’t enough to win the match.

KKR continues their impressive performances in this tournament after winning the match against DC. All the key players are in good form but skipper Shreyas Iyer hasn’t played any match-winning knock so far for his team and he needs to play better cricket to win the pressure games as well.
