Kolkata Knight Riders vs Delhi Daredevils:
Delhi Daredevils batting has been dismal in last few games as the side will look to end their losing streak when they face Kolkata Knight Riders at Eden Gardens in Kolkata. Delhi has only managed two wins out of six games played so far in the competition. They have lost a lot of close games in the tenth edition of the league. Kolkata has been superior team of the season notching up 12 points from eight games played. Kolkata look favorites to win this contest as their batting has been consistently producing runs with the bat and playing in front of home crowds will certainly is an added advantage.
Daredevils lost their home fixture to Kolkata and would be geared to avenge their defeat in this season of Indian Premier League. Zaheer Khan, Pat Cummins and Chris Morris have all been splendid but batting must come produce their best if Delhi wants to topple Kolkata in their own backyard. The heroes for Kolkata at Feroz Shah Kotla were Manish Pandey and Yusuf Pathan who bailed the side out of trouble and took them to victory.
Delhi has the best bowling attack at their disposal as the contest might be decided between Delhi’s bowling vs Kolkata batting in the end. Delhi must add a spinner as Shahbaz Nadeem was impressive in the games he played for Delhi. The visitors batting must fire as Sanju Samson, Sam Billings and Karun Nair need to raise their game for the coming fixtures if Delhi wants to seriously challenge for the crown this season.
Marlon Samuels has been added in place of Quinton de Kock and might play for Delhi at some stage in the competition. The West Indian batsman has all the class and experience that could prove to be invaluable for the side who is desperately short of confidence in terms of batting.
