The 28th game of IPL 2023 will be played between Delhi Capitals and Kolkata Knight Riders at the former’s home ground. A winless Delhi team will be looking to win their first game of the season.
Both Delhi and Kolkata are coming into this contest on the back of consecutive losses. The Capitals lost their previous game to Royal Challengers Bangalore by 23 runs. Batting first, RCB posted a total of 174 runs on the board with help from a half century by Virat Kohli. In reply, Capitals’ batting woes were highlighted once again as they fell short of the target by 23 runs. Their batting has been their biggest weakness this season, with the likes of Prithvi Shaw and Mitchell Marsh unable to swing their bats.
KKR, on the other hand, lost their previous game to Mumbai Indians. A century by Venkatesh Iyer took them to a total of 185 in 20 overs, but Ishan Kishan and Suryakumar Yadav came out all guns blazing to take Mumbai to a comfortable win. Apart from impact player Suyash Sharma, all the other KKR bowlers conceded a minimum of nine runs per over.

DC vs KKR Match Prediction
Although the Delhi Capitals have lost five games on a trot, we have seen teams making a remarkable comeback in the tournament after winning even six games on a trot. They will be expecting big contributions from Prithvi Shaw and Mitchell Marsh. KKR, meanwhile, have a strong spin department, but their batting in each of the games has been a one-man show and their pace bowling has been substandard. We predict the Capitals to win this game.
