Kolkata Knight Riders, who opened their Pepsi IPL 2014 campaign with an impressive 41-run victory over the defending champions Mumbai Indians on the opening night, will lock horns with the Delhi Daredevils in Match 6 of the season.
While KKR will come into this match buzzing with lots of positive energy, their opponents will need to recover quickly from the drubbing their received at the hands of Royal Challengers Bangalore. DD, whose top order was demolished in that game, recovered to post a modest 145 runs on the board, which was knocked off in quick time by Virat Kohli and Yuvraj Singh.
KKR might be forced to rejig the combination that did the job in the previous match, because Yusuf Pathan has traveled back to India to be with his wife and newborn. Hence, there is a chance KKR will make room for either Ryan ten Doeschate or Andre Russell to add more ammunition to the batting.
What our expert think about the game? Read on...
KKR has started with the bang, Delhi is not up to the mark against the RCB in their opening match. To be honest we are not very much impressed with the Dinesh Kartik captaincy. On the other hand, Gambhir has proven himself most of the time.
Got the news that KKR has won the toss and elected to bat first. A very wise decision, we have seen in the first match that batting is not a problem on this track though there is something in there for bowlers. Chasing under the lights is not that easy too and KKR does have the quality of spinners to defend. So we have decided to go with the KKR in this match.
