Delhi Daredevils have won last two matches and they would love to nail one more at their home ground FerozShah Kotla Stadium. After 11 straight losses, its good to see a capable team winning two matches on the trot. We can clearly see smiles back to the Delhi Daredevils camp. The team has started looking 'devilish' with desires to win more and why not? They boast of a good line up in batting, bowling and fielding departments. Good to see the players have started believing in their abilities now.
DD have two good leg spinners who can turn matches in their favour - Imran Tahir and Amit Mishra. On the other hand they have found another hero in the form of their skipper JP Duminy. He has scored maximum runs for the team so far. The other left hander Yuvraj Singh is highly dangerous and if he clicks today, KKR would find themselves in a deep trouble.
Kolkata Knight Riders have played three matches and won two. They sit on the third position of points tally. A loss here will take them to fourth position while DD will climb to the third spot. In the last outing against Kings XI Punjab, KKR proved their mettle. After being down by five wickets and only 60 runs on board, KKR seemed losing it to reach a target of 156. Andre Russel came to bat and turned tables on Kings XI. That was a resounding win for KKR that boosted their morale.
As we have mentioned earlier, KKR have the best chance of posting a good total when the openers Gambir and Uthappa score big. A lot is being expected from mystery spinner Sunil Narine who has picked just one wicket so far in this year's IPL.
Head to head stats are pretty even stevens. KKR have won seven so far while DD have nailed six matches. Let us see if Delhi Daredevils can pick one more win today.
