Delhi Daredevils vs Kolkata Knight Riders latest updates: Hello and welcome to CricketCountry’s live coverage of VIVO Indian Premier League (IPL) 2018 Match 26. The match will see Shreyas Iyers’s Delhi Daredevils (DD) take on Dinesh Karthik’s Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) at Feroz Shah Kotla, Delhi. We will be bringing you the live updates, interesting tweets and stat facts from the cyberspace.

Gautam Gambhir who returned to DD with a big reputation of winning titles has stepped down as captain of the side. This has added more responsibility to the young Iyer. Can he turn the fortunes for DD who are currently at the bottom of the table. Whereas, KKR are doing decent this year with Karthik leading the side. They have won half of their matches they played and are stranded at fourth spot in the points table.

DD will climb a rank up the chart if they win today, whereas KKR will retain their fourth spot with 8 points. Both teams have equally explosive players with the ability to deliver big on occasions. Will we get to see Sandeep Lamichhane in today’s match?

Gautam Gambhir, Prithvi Shaw, Shreyas Iyer (c), Rishabh Pant (wk), Glenn Maxwell, Rahul Tewatia, Liam Plunkett, Mohammed Shami, Sandeep Lamichhane, Trent Boult
