Struggling teams, Delhi Daredevils (DD) and Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) search for that elusive win and pick some momentum in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2014 at Ferozshah Kotla stadium. Delhi lost to Cheennai Super Kings in a high scoring match, while KKR were done in by Pravin tambe’s hat-trick.
Delhi’s batting has clicked in patches, but they need to find form as a unit. Dinesh Karthik smashed a good fifty the other day and Quinton de Kock seems to be in good touch. Murali Vijay is someone who has played a calming role and he maybe someone they expect to hold their batting together. At the same time, they need skipper Kevin Pietersen to fire as a good performance from him is due.
Kolkata have a very tricky proposition before them. The loss in the previous game would certainly wake them up as losing six wickets in eight balls is a sign of a shaky order. Will Jacques Kallis come back to bring that calm into the side? But, it is also not fair to let Ryan ten Doeschate go as he had only one ball to face in that dramatic encounter.
