An inconsistent Delhi will square off against a struggling Kolkata in match 41 of the Indian T20 League 2022 season. The Rishabh Pant-led side, who won only three games so far, suffered a 15-run defeat at the hands of Rajasthan in their last game. Meanwhile, Kolkata are enduring a four-game winless run. They lost to Delhi by 44 runs in their first meeting between both franchises this season.
We pick five First Games fantasy cricket Match-Ups in the Delhi-Kolkata match.
D WARNER vs S IYER
David Warner and Shreyas Iyer meet each other in this Match-Up. Both players registered half-centuries in the opening fixture between both sides. Warner has racked up 219 runs in five innings. The Kolkata skipper, who made 46 runs in two innings at Wankhede Stadium, is two short of 250 runs this season.
Verdict: D Warner could finish above S Iyer in the fantasy points chart.
T SOUTHEE vs KULDEEP Y
New Zealand pacer Tim Southee has been brilliant this season as he has claimed eight wickets in three matches. He is up against Kuldeep Yadav, who went wicketless and conceded 40 runs against Rajasthan last week. In his two outings at Wankhede Stadium, Kuldeep Yadav took only one wicket and conceded more than 12 runs per over.
Verdict: T Southee is likely to triumph against Kuldeep Y.
L YADAV vs N RANA
Lalit Yadav has impressed in Delhi's last two games. The 25-year-old took 2/11 against Punjab and played a valiant knock of 37 against Rajasthan. Nitish Rana, on the other hand, has failed to build on after his half-century against Hyderabad. He has managed just 143 runs from eight innings in the 2022 season.
Verdict: Based on recent performances, L Yadav has the edge over N Rana.
Did You Know? L Yadav has grabbed an average of 42 fantasy points per match in the 2022 season
S NARINE vs K AHMED
Khaleel Ahmed has been brilliant with the ball, picking up at least one wicket in all six matches. The tall left-arm pacer collected 11 wickets to his name at an economy of 7.91. Khaleel's opponent Sunil Narine, who failed to pick up a wicket in Kolkata's last two matches, has six wickets in eight games.
Verdict: K Ahmed could clinch more fantasy points than S Narine
S THAKUR vs U YADAV
With just four wickets at an economy rate of 9.60, Shardul Thakur has struggled for consistency in the 15th edition. The Delhi medium pacer, who went wicketless in the last two matches, faces an uphill task against Umesh Yadav. A wicket, two catches, and 15 runs helped Umesh register 63 fantasy points against in his latest outing.
Verdict: U Yadav is likely to win this Match-Up.
