The 19th match of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2022) will see Delhi Capitals (DC) take on the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) at the Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai on Sunday, according to the IPL 2022 schedule.
The Kolkata Knight Riders have had a decent IPL 2022 campaign so far, with three wins in four games. The likes of Andre Russell and Pat Cummins have hit their strides in the last few games, serving KKR well. But they now face a wounded Delhi Capitals side, who come into the game on the back of two losses. However, the return of David Warner and Anrich Nortje should hand Delhi Capitals the favorites tag. With both teams keen to clinch an all-important win, an entertaining game beckons in Mumbai.

A high-scoring game is expected at the Brabourne Stadium despite there being some help on offer for the bowlers.

Both teams will ideally look to chase upon winning the toss, with 170 being a good total at the venue.
Today’s KKR vs DC Dream11 match top picks
Rishabh Pant: Although Rishabh Pant has shown glimpses of his explosiveness in the middle order, he is due for a big one. While KKR's bowling attack revolves around the spin-twins Narine and Chakravarthy, Pant is a wonderful player of spin, which should hold him in good stead. With Pant keen to get some runs under his belt, he is a must-have in your KKR vs DC Dream11 fantasy team.
Shreyas Iyer: Shreyas Iyer is set to face his former IPL side after KKR roped him him at the mega auction. The Kolkata captain is still to make an impact with the bat, unable to get going against spin in the middle overs. However, given his potential and ability to anchor the innings, he is one to watch out for in this game.
Axar Patel: Axar Patel is one of the best spin-bowling allrounders in the league, with the Indian international impressing with both bat and ball in IPL 2022. With KKR's batting being right-handed heavy, Axar should hold the key for DC in the middle overs, making him a good addition to your KKR vs DC Dream11 fantasy team.
Sunil Narine: Even though he hasn't picked up many wickets, Sunil Narine has been brilliant in the middle overs for KKR. His ability to turn the ball both ways and vary his pace according to the conditions has served Kolkata well. With the conditions likely to suit him yet again, Narine can be backed to pick a wicket or two today.
