Can the leggie stun the Kinghts?

He would be looking to dictate the proceedings with his unpredictable variations.

However, the question is what would be his strategy against the KKR batsmen, who are in deadly form.

This is a home tie for DC, and Mishra can definitely influence the outcome.

Wicket-keeper batsman Robin Uthappa played a great knock against Kings XI Punjab to lay a strong foundation atop.

As a result, it would again be a treat to watch if he continues in the same vein.

However, it would not be easy on the sluggish track of Kotla, as the DC spinners would look to get him out early.

Nitish Rana

Can the local guy upset the home fans?

Rookie top-order batsman Nitish has been in sensational form since the start of the tournament.

His twin half-centuries have proven to be the backbone of KKR's batting.

He would be backed to come up with another stellar performance, and with Kotla being his home ground, he would look to make it count.

As a result, DC bowlers have a task at hand.

Andre Russell

Moreover, his bowling has been effective as well.

Thus, DC bowlers need to make sure that they do their homework properly.
