KOL vs DC Injury Updates
Delhi Capitals have no injury concerns heading into this game. Meanwhile, KKR suffered a blow a few matches ago when Andre Russell sustained an injury. However, he is said to have recovered, but the Knight Riders might not tinker with their winning combination.
The side chasing won the previous game held at this venue and the trend is expected to continue. Moreover, the pitch in Sharjah has witnessed a string of low-scoring encounters, and we could be in for another one on Wednesday.
Pacers and spinners have fared equally well on this track. They are expected to enjoy bowling on the track, despite having shorter boundaries on offer.
With a clear day on the cards, we are all set to witness a full game of 40-overs.
