DC vs KKR Toss, IPL 2023 updates: Here is a look at the toss prediction of today’s IPL match between Delhi Capitals and Kolkata Knight Riders.

Delhi centrals hosts Kolkata Knight Riders in an IPL 2023 match at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi on Thursday.

DC are yet to get off the mark, having lost all five of their former meeting. Meanwhile, KKR have won three of their five matches so far.

The Indian Premier League (IPL) has returned to its original, pre-COVID-19, home- and- down format for the first time since 2019.

In 2020, the IPL took place behind unrestricted doors across three venues in UAE- Dubai, Sharjah and Abu Dhabi. In 2021 too, the event was held across four venues- Delhi, Ahmedabad, Mumbai and Chennai- before it was again moved to the UAE.

The return to home- and- down format has meant that the captain rightly calling out the side of the coin will have a borderline advantage of maximising home conditions. KKR hold a slim 16- 14 head- to- head advantage over DC.

Jitters of sword from Axar Patel as he survived, fought and stayed till the end to take his platoon home as Delhi beats Kolkata by 4 lattices. A relieved DC camp as they sculpture the first points on the board and this will be a special palm. Khejroliya was assigned with a job to defend seven runs from the final over but a couple from the first two balls followed by a no- ball made the work light for Axar who hit the winning shot. It’s 20 twinkles past night and what a thrilling hassle this has been.

Axar Patel has plodded as the swings haven’t connected and there’s a lot of cat- and- mouse game between Rana and Lalit Yadav. The batsman shaped for a rear megahit and Rana pulled off. What night drama! But this has been sensational from Kolkata and Rana’s tactics have been brilliant.  Axar survives a stumping dread as Delhi needs seven runs from six balls. Six runs for a Super Over!

Axar Patel is off the mark with a single and the fall of Warner has put pressure on Delhi. A veritably sloppy fielding from Andre Russell helped Pandey fund a boundary and get the 100 up for his platoon and also Axar cut Narine for another boundary to ease some jitters in the Delhi dressing room.

Varun breaks the stage and Warner falls for a brilliant 41- ball 57 and his knock comported of 11 successes to the hedge. A rear reach that went wrong as Warner was trapped, the commander reviewed it but the ball was heading on to the wholes and the arbiter’s decision stays. Kolkata strikes back with the gate of Warner but Delhi will be conservative of not losing the plot from then. A gate demoiselle as Axar Patel walks in.

Nitish Rana brings himself into the attack and the KKR commander strikes by removing Marsh as the batsman fails to get the distance and was taken by the fielder at long- out. Phil Salt joins Warner and the batsman drills Rana to the wide long-off boundary to get off the mark in style. Warner with 10 boundaries is five short of his half- century.

Warner gets going with a brilliant pull over the mid-wicket and Delhi will look to gun down the total snappily to ameliorate its new run- rate. Prithvi Shaw is also off the mark with a single as Umesh Yadav finished the over with a brilliant cushion that Warner swayed down.

The change of club eventually worked for Russell as the West Indian smoked Mukesh for a chapeau- trick of sixes to give some motivation to the innings. 19 runs came from Mukesh’s last over but still, the fast bowler finished with good numbers of 4-0-34-1. Delhi will back itself to chase the target after coming out with a atrocious bowling show with all bowlers delivering the goods. The team seems to be rejuvenated under Warner’s leadership with Kuldeep, Anrich Nortje, Axar Patel and Ishant Sharma participating eight lattices among themselves. Mukesh picked one gate with Varun Chakaravarthy falling short of his crinkle. Will be back for the chase in a bit.

“Enough confident heading into this game, not because of the hundred but for the way I’ve been approaching the game, which is more important in terms of my fur. I’m extremely satisfied with that. Most important thing is that everyone understands their part veritably easily. The communication is veritably good, and there have been cases where there ’ve been defeats, but still, we’ve managed to put up a veritably good score on the board. That speaks a lot about our fur depth, will look to carry that forward. We’ll have to bring our A game, we’ve played good justice, but we’ve missed out on a many important aspects of the game, many overs then and there. It’s a pivotal game, and we ’ll look to win it ever. ” Know More IPL News…
