KKR vs DC Dream11 Prediction Possible 11 Pitch Report: IPL 2024 47th Match | KKR vs DC Dream11 Prediction Today | Eden Gardens Pitch Report

Another mammoth total coming up in this crazy edition of the IPL? It is certainly shaping up that way. Not only is Eden Gardens a batting paradise, but both Kolkata Knight Riders and Delhi Capitals are smashing huge totals.

Last time out, Punjab made a mockery of KKR’s 261. Delhi, courtesy of Jake Fraser-McGurk’s whirlwind 84 off 27 balls, slammed 257/4 against MI. All signs are pointing to more runs, so it’s on the bowlers to hold their own as best as they can.

In terms of the IPL 2024 points table, this is a crucial match. DC can actually overtake KKR on points with a win here, which is vital for Rishabh Pant’s team as this is already their 11th match. KKR’s strong net run rate of 0.972 – the best in the league – puts them in second but need to keep winning with four other teams on 10.
