Kolkata Knight Riders vs Delhi Capitals Betting Tips 28/09/2021

Teams Status

Kolkata Knight Riders

KKR began the UAE leg of IPL 2021 with back-to-back wins before being beaten by league leaders Chennai Super Kings on Sunday that left them stuck on eight points – a haul shared by multiple teams.

That defeat aside, KKR have witnessed plenty of good things since the league resumed. In Venkatesh Iyer, they have found a star in the making, whereas Lockie Ferguson and Sunil Narine have been outstanding too.

One slight concern is the form of their captain Eoin Morgan, who has contributed scores of 7 and 8 in his two outings. In fact, he has not scored a half century in any form of T20 cricket since last year’s IPL.

Andre Russell is a big injury concern for KKR. He did his hamstring against CSK. If he is ruled out, one of Shakib Al Hassan and Ben Cutting is likely to be drafted in.

Delhi Capitals

Second-placed Delhi Capitals already have a foot in the knockout stages, thanks to their win over Rajasthan Royals. No team has not made the playoffs despite amassing 16 points, which is what they have right now.

That said mathematically speaking they do have an outside chance of elimination, however unlikely that may be.

Of their last four fixtures, all they need to do is win two, which would guarantee them two shots at the final in the playoffs.

Marcus Stoinis is out injured for Delhi. Lalit Yadav filled in for him in the last game but Sam Billings’ availability might warrant a change now.

Tipster’s Angle

Tip: Kolkata Knight Riders to win @ 2.24

KKR’s sole defeat of the UAE leg so far has been to highflying CSK. Even that loss came in a final-ball thriller where they stretched the MS Dhoni-led side to the limit. Granted that they will likely be without Russell for the game, which is a big loss, we still like them as underdogs than we like Delhi as the favourites. The play here is to back KK to win @ odds of 2.24 with Dafabet.

Tip: Eoin Morgan to score over 24.5 runs @ 1.83

Morgan’s form has been talked about a lot of late. His dip in form could be attributed to a considerable time spent in biosecure bubbles or a permanent decline at the age of 35. Your bet will depend on what view you have of the England and KKR captain. We believe Morgan still has some game left in him. And with him being put under the magnifier, coupled with Russell’s injury, a decent score should follow. The play here is to back him to score more than 24.5 runs @ 1.83 with Bet365.


Delhi have won four of the last five matches between these two sides. This head-to-head could use a bit of course correction right about now.
