Throughout the IPL decade, KKR holds an edge over Delhi with 13 wins out of 20 matches. With hitters like Rishabh Pant, Andre Russell, Chris Lynn, Sunil Narine among others we surely expect some fireworks.
Pant, Captain Shreyas and Chris Lynn coming into their own slowly and steadily. With the surface at the Kotla expected to offer spinners some assistance, KKR hopes their core bowling attacker – Sunil Narine, Kuldeep Yadav, and Piyush Chawla have to bring in their beast.
DD also poses KKR’s run-getter Captain Dinesh Karthik, Robin Uthappa, and Nitish Rana some major threat from Liam Plunkett and Trent Boult. The former made an instant impression returning 3-17 in his IPL debut outing and the latter is DD’s highest wicket-taker this season.
