It’s Match 28 of IPL 2023, and Delhi Capitals are getting ready to host Kolkata Knight Riders on their home ground.After playing 5 games each, both teams find themselves in the bottom four of the competition. While KKR is placed at 7th with 2 wins in 5 games, DC is yet to win a game in IPL 2023. KKR will enter the game, having lost two consecutive games, while DC will be looking to gain momentum in the competition.
While both teams have displayed some amazing performances, they are yet to showcase consistency. That is why Venkatesh Iyer is the only player contending for the Orange Cap from KKR. Conversely, DC has David Warner in contention for the Orange Cap. Both teams are struggling on the bowling front, so viewers can expect a batting fest yet again.
That is why fantasy players should certainly opt for a batting-heavy team. Starting with the most consistent player among the teams, David Warner. The Delhi Capital captain has scored 228 runs in IPL 2023 at an impressive average of 45.60.
It will be no surprise to see Warner getting picked first on many best cricket betting sites. Another player who has been extremely good for their team is Venkatesh Iyer. The youngster has scored 234 runs this season with an average of 46.80.
Nitish Rana is another name in the KKR squad who has been doing relatively well in IPL 2023. With 150 runs this season, the KKR captain has achieved a strike rate of 147 and an average of 30.
Axar Patel and Andre Russell can be considered among the top batting picks for the cricket match. Both all-rounders come at the tail-end of the inning but are capable of scoring with a handful of balls remaining. Given how they are likely to bowl their 4 overs as well, Axar and Russell emerge as viable picks for fantasy cricket players.
