Raipur: May 1, 2013

Delhi Daredevils will take on the struggling Kolkata Knight Riders in the 44th match of the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2013 tournament on Wednesday.

Just like the previous match between the Daredevils and the Warriors, this encounter will also be a battle of survival for both the teams — especially KKR, whose slide during this edition has been pretty sharp.

While Daredevils have lost seven out of their nine games, KKR are not too far behind having lost six games out of nine.

While the Knights would try desperately to bring their lackadaisical campaign back on track, the Daredevils can afford to play with a free mind as they have already lost enough and have nothing more to lose.

The Daredevils have failed to finish off some close matches this season and their effort against the Warriors was certainly laudable considering the situation they are in at the moment.

With a huge pay cheque of more than a million dollars, the senior Pathan has failed to produce one single performance of note during the three seasons that he has been with the Shahrukh Khan co-owned franchise.

That he has been getting game after game is an indication that how bad KKR’s bench strength is. Things have come to such a passe that Yusuf might still be retained having scored only 108 runs in nine matches at a woeful average of only 18, PTI reported.
