Both Kolkata and Delhi have their fair share of knowledge about the pitch of the Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai which has produced relatively high scoring encounters. And since it is going to be a batting surface, one can expect the toss-winning captain to bat first.

Kolkata vs Delhi recent form
Kolkata, who sit at the top the Indian T20 League 2022 points table, have won three of their four matches this season. The teams started off with a fine win over Chennai before slipping against Bangalore. They bounced back to winning ways in their next two matches, beating the likes of Punjab and Mumbai in absolute style.
Delhi, on the other hand, have been a shadow of their former self this season, having won just one of their three matches so far in the campaign.

Kolkata vs Delhi head-to-head record
Kolkata and Delhi have played a total of 29 matches in the past, with the former winning 16 while the latter coming out on top on 12 occasions. Last season, apart from their league stage meetings, the teams squared off in Qualifier 2 where Venkatesh Iyer’s scintillating half-century ended Delhi’s season right away.
That was only the second instance in the history of the Indian T20 League that Kolkata and Delhi played in the playoffs.
