As Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) take on Delhi Daredevils (DD) in Match 13 of VIVO IPL 2018, it is trip down the memory lane for DD skipper Gautam Gambhir. As soon as Gambhir landed in Kolkata, ‘Gautam paaji’ turned into ‘Gautam Da.’ Gambhir has had a great run as a leader as well as a batsman for KKR. As a leader, Gambhir has lead KKR to two IPL titles. He still holds the top spot in KKR’s leading run-getters list with 3,345 at 31.26 with strike rate of 124.72.

Gambhir is entering a familiar zone this year but as DD’s skipper, his home team. Just like Kings XI Punjab (KXIP)’s KL Rahul got nostalgic on entering the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium ahead of their clash Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), Gambhir as well is experiencing similar emotions.

DD are coming with a thrilling win against Mumbai Indians (MI). KKR, on the other hand, are coming on the back of two consecutive losses. After the conclusion of the clash between KKR-DD, one of them will end with two wins in the 2018 IPL.
