VenueFeroz Shah Kotla, Delhi
Kolkata Knight Riders were beaten by Rajasthan Royals in the 25th match of the IPL by 10 runs whereas Delhi Daredevils were defeated by Chennai Super Kings by eight wickets in the next one. DD triumphed against KKR by four wickets earlier in the first round and the latter will try to take a revenge of their previous encounter. Both teams have played seven matches in the event, won just two, lost five and have gathered four points each.
Dinesh Karthik, Murali Vijay, Quinton de Kock and Jean-Paul Duminy are scoring most of the runs for DD. Their skipper, Kevin Pietersen, is a total failure with the bat and needs to play some big innings. Jaydev Unadkat, Shahbaz Nadeem and Mohammed Shami are trying hard to bowl well against their opponents.
Robin Uthappa along with Gautam Gambhir took off well for KKR by scoring fifties in their previous game against Rajasthan Royals whereas Manis Pandey and Suryakumar Yadav are required to concentrate on their batting. Vinay Kumar and Shakib Al Hasan should assist Sunil Narine nicely in the bowling department.
