Analysis: The top-four batsmen of the Capitals are terrifically exploiting. Prithvi, however, did not score better in two of the three matches, but he was stable in the remaining one. Also, Dhawan, who is known to be an aggressive top-order batsman, can clinch what is needed for winning. Pant and Iyer will be adding up some runs along with Hetmyer whereas, their bowlers, especially Rabada, will be looking up to pick some big wickets.
On the other hand, Gill and Naraine, as the top-order batsman of the KKR, have shown consistency so far. Thence, they will be up to something big tomorrow. Karthik, the skipper, is likely to play a skipper knock whereas, Morgan and Russell will be a helping hand in mid-overs to the finish. The bowlers like Pat Cummins, Nagarkoti, and Chakravarthy will have to play their roles crucially for a win.
