KKR is on top of the points table already almost made the playoff place where as Delhi Daredevils holding the last position in points table who played six matches with two wins. DD is looking for desperate wins to keep it play-off options open.
In spite of having some young promising batsman on their side, DD could not perform to the core. But few batsman like Sanju Samson, Rishab Pant, Chris Morris. DD facing inconsistency problems with their batting Shreyas Iyer, Sam Billings, Corey Anderson, Karun Nair till not registered a mark batting performance.
Daredevils need to change the batting order as opening look weak need someone like panth to open innings with Samson and send Morris up the order for some quick runs on the board.
While Delhi Bowling looks good as Captain Zaheer himself leading the bowling attack along with Kagiso Rabada, Pat Cummins Chris Morris & Amit Mishra.
KKR is the most balanced side in both batting & bowling.
KKR Captain Gautham Gambhir already earned Orange cap with leading scorer in the tournament while Sunil Narine pinch hitting added some positive starts for KKR.
Robin Uthappa is also in his best form has already created some match winning innings.
Bowling side with Umesh Yadav, Kuldeep Yadav, Colin de Grandhomme, Chris Woakes & Nathan Coulter-Nile is looking strong.
Nathan Coulter-Nile was rested in the last match is now may be included in the playing level as KKR looks for a faster playoff entry.
KKR looks much better side and looks favorite for today’s match.
