After the action-packed Super Sunday, which saw two matches live out to their billing and keep viewers entertained till the last ball, the fun continues on Monday with two of the biggest names in IPL squaring off. Kolkata Knight Riders take on Delhi Daredevils today in the ole match of the day at the Eden Gardens. With both the team’s having registered one win from their three matches the match takes on an even greater significance with a win for either seeing the move past the other in the table. The match takes on more importance given that Gautam Gambhir will be facing off against his old side who he helped guide to two titles.
Coming into the match with totally different fortunes both the teams are in dire need of points. While Delhi Daredevils snapped of their two-match losing streak with a fine win over reigning champions Mumbai Indians at the Wankhede, Kolkata Knightriders are on a two-match losing streak.
The Delhi Daredevils finally saw their investment in batting pay off as their batsmen chased down a huge target set to them by Mumbai. England batsman Jason Roy was the star of the show as he reminded people of his class to blow apart Mumbai and seal Delhi’s first win on the tournament. Finally aided by Gautam Gambhir the top and middle order seems to be shaping up perfectly for the capital team. However, the bowling department remains an area of concern for the Daredevils who have yet to see their pace department step up to the plate. Veterans Trent Boult and Mohammed Shami have leaked runs, making things difficult for the newbies. A bouncy and pace assisted Eden Gardens pitch should be just the platform for the duo to return to form as they both will be looking to extract the maximum for the bowler friendly pitch.
The Dinesh Karthik lead KKR find themselves in a spot of bother. Their failings at the auction are proving heavy on the team as inexperience and a lack of world-class players and leaders finds them struggling to put together any meaningful performances together. They are in desperate need of a revamp in strategy and personnel if they are to have any hope of registering a win today.
