Head to Head Match Stats
KKR Won: 13
DC Won: 11
KKR have seen their youngsters Shubman Gill and fast-bowling duo of Shivam Mavi and Kamlesh Nagarkoti shine in their previous game against Rajasthan. While his team has performed well as a unit, KKR skipper Dinesh Karthik has failed with the bat so far. However, in Sharjah he would like to lead by example and help his team register yet another win.
Like Karthik, Shreyas Iyer, the youngest captain in IPL 2020, has led his side well but has disappointed with the bat. The short dimensions at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium provide him the opportunity to be the game changer and help his side once again regain the number one spot in points table.
