Vizag is all set to host the DC vs KKR IPL 2024 match on Wednesday, April 3. Vizag is the home ground for Delhi Capitals for a couple of games. This is the second and final game for the Capitals at this venue. 

Delhi Capitals are heading into this match after beating CSK in their last match. They posted 191 and the Super Kings reached as far as 171 in the chase. Despite MS Dhoni’s late heroics with the ball, the Men in Yellow lost the game. 

The Capitals got their combination perfect for this game as they decided to bring in Prithvi Shaw in place of Ricky Bhui. He scored 43 off 27 balls and added a 93-run stand to set the game up for the Capitals.

Rishabh Pant then scored his first fifty of the season as he blasted his way to it. DC after the first win is looking for a competent side. They have also won three of their last five games against KKR.

The Kolkata Knight Riders have won their first two games. They were lucky to win the first game against SRH but stamped their class against RCB. They too were clinical in how they bowled at the Chinnaswamy and restricting RCB below 200 was a great job.

Gautam Gambhir’s decision to stick with Sunil Narine paid off as he scored a quickfire 47. Venkatesh Iyer also scored a quickfire fifty to help KKR win with more than three overs to spare and boost their NRR.

They have lost three games in the last two seasons against DC.

Pitch Analysis

From what we saw from the DC vs CSK clash, Visakhapatnam is a high-scoring venue. The pitch is flat and batting-friendly. However, the bowlers have true pace and bounce in it if they can be pinpointed as the DC bowlers showed. Matheesha Pathirana bowled some accurate yorkers which is another way to minimise damage at this venue. 

So far 14 games have been played at the venue with seven matches won by the team batting first and seven matches chasing/ 206 posted by MI against DC is the highest score posted at this venue. Seeing how the last match panned out and the kind of power hitters on show, we are in for another high-scoring encounter.
