Delhi Capitals will face off against Kolkata Knight Riders in Match 16 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024, on Wednesday, April 3, at the ACA–VDCA Cricket Stadium in Visakhapatnam. 

With both teams riding the wave of recent victories, the cricket community is bracing for a contest that promises fireworks.

DC vs KKR: Team Previews

Delhi Capitals

After a shaky start to the season, Delhi Capitals have bounced back with vengeance. Following defeats at the hands of Punjab Kings and Rajasthan Royals, they turned the tables on Chennai Super Kings, clinching their first win of the season by a margin of 20 runs.

It was an exceptional display of attacking cricket, with the top order, featuring David Warner, Prithvi Shaw, and captain Rishabh Pant, finding their rhythm and propelling the team to a formidable score of 191. 

The bowlers, led by the Indian pace duo of Khaleel Ahmed and Mukesh Kumar, who took 2 and 3 wickets respectively, bowled with precision, while Axar Patel was economical.

However, Anrich Nortje's performance has left much to be desired, with the South African pacer yet to make his mark this season. 

The team's bowling arsenal is expected to receive a boost with the return of Kuldeep Yadav, who missed the previous game due to a niggle. The Capitals will aim to continue the winning streak and maintain their momentum.

Kolkata Knight Riders

On the other hand, Kolkata Knight Riders have emerged as a force to be reckoned with this year, under the guidance of their new mentor and former captain, Gautam Gambhir. With two wins out of two, they are comfortably perched at the second spot in the points table, having dispatched Sunrisers Hyderabad and Royal Challengers Bangalore.

Despite a few underperformances, notably from Mitchell Starc and Varun Chakravarthy, the team has shown depth and versatility. Starc, in particular, is under the microscope, as expectations are sky-high for the league’s most expensive player ever.

The batting lineup has been formidable, with Phil Salt and Sunil Narine laying solid foundations, while Venkatesh Iyer and Shreyas Iyer have been instrumental in building on the momentum. 

Rinku Singh and Andre Russell, the team's finishers, have already demonstrated their explosive capabilities, hinting at the depth and balance within the squad as they eye a third consecutive win.

DC vs KKR: Vizag Pitch Report

The ACA–VDCA Cricket Stadium, with its history of favouring spinners and offering a fair playground for batsmen, is expected to play a crucial role in the outcome of this match. The average score for the first innings here stands at 160, with an even split between victories batting first and chasing (7 games each). However, the pitch has shown signs of slowing down in the second innings, suggesting that the team winning the toss might opt to set a target. With tactics such as change of pace and wide yorkers being key weapns for pacers here, captains will be keen to exploit every inch of the pitch to gain an upper hand.
