In the 25th match of IPL (IPL 2021), Delhi Capitals will face Kolkata Knight Riders at 7:30 pm in Ahmedabad's Narendra Modi Stadium. The current season (DC vs KKR) is about half the match. All the franchises have played around six matches. Royal Challengers Bangalore, Chennai Super Kings and Delhi Capital's are dominating the points table.
Delhi Capitals, captained by Rishabh Pant, have won four out of six matches played so far, they lost to Bangalore by just one run in their previous encounter. At the same time, the situation of Eoin Morgan's Kolkata Knight Riders is not at all. KKR have managed only two wins of their six previous matches; Kolkata won their previous tie but Delhi had to face a defeat. In such a situation, this match will be important for both teams. KKR is fifth in the points table with 4 points and Delhi is third with 8 points.

As seen in the two IPL 2021 matches played at the Narendra Modi Stadium so far, the pitch is slow, with the bowlers getting some help on the surface. However, the team batting second is likely to get help later. A score of 170 runs can be challenging on this pitch.
The conditions will be warm with the temperature around the 37 degrees Celsius mark. The humidity won’t be on the higher side with no chances of a downpour.
Our match prediction meter is telling that Delhi have an upper hand in this match as their middle order, as well as opener batsmen, are also in form. For KKR, the poor performance of the opening pair has been a major concern; however, Batting is the strength of both teams and whoever does better in the scoring dept will win today's match.
