KKR vs DC Dream11 Prediction: The high-flying Delhi Capitals will face Kolkata Knight Riders in an IPL 2021 match here on Tuesday (September 28) and the Rishabh Pant-led Delhi will be eager to win this match and seal their place in the play-offs. Delhi now have 16 points and a team with that many points have never missed the knockout berth. But they would want to eliminate even the theoretical possibilities of a last-minute mathematical tangle and secure the playoff berth at the earliest.
On the other hand, a win is quite mandatory for KKR as a defeat will leave them with a big task of winning the remaining three matches and even that may not guarantee them a place in the knockouts.

Captain & Vice-Captain
On a slow pitch, someone like Shreyas Iyer would be an important batsman for DC for his technique against spin. Varun Chakravarthy would be the most dangerous bowler on a sluggish pitch.
Dinesh Karthik played a good knock in the last game to provide the impetus to the score. He would be a key finisher for KKR. Rishabh Pant is always a crucial batsman for DC in the middle order.
Andre Russell is always a hot pick in the all-rounders’ section. Axar Patel will be handy with the ball for DC and also with the bat if needed.
Shikhar Dhawan is going to be the batsman to watch out for given he is the leading run-getter of the season so far. Venkatesh Iyer and Rahul Tripathi are the in-form batsmen for KKR.
Avesh Khan is picking up wickets consistently this season. Anrich Nortje is rattling the opposition with his pace. Irrespective of the pitch, his fast bowling has proved to be vital for DC.
