KKR looking for the revenge of the last match played and lost the match in Super over
In the 26th match of the IPL season 12 between Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and Delhi Capitals (DC) will be played from 8 o’clock tonight on the Eden Gardens ground in Kolkata.
Two-time champion Kolkata Knight Riders against Delhi Capitals will want to pay back their previous defeat. When both teams were face-to-face on the Feroz Shah Kotla ground for the first time in this season, Delhi defeated Kolkata in the Super Over. In this match, the host of Kolkata is showing a lot. With the benefit of domestic conditions, Kolkata is expected to get support from domestic audiences as well.
In this season, Kolkata has so far won four out of six matches, while in two it has lost. The team occupies second place in the table with eight points. On the other hand, in the way that Delhi beat Royal Challengers Bangalore by four wickets in their previous match, the team’s confidence has increased significantly.
The team is in sixth place with six points, with three wins and three losses in six matches.
Kolkata’s team lost against Chennai, despite Andre Russell’s a half-century, could score 108 runs in nine overs in 20 overs and Chennai had achieved this target by losing three wickets in 17.2 overs.
The team, led by Dinesh Karthik, had lost the middle order even after the headline failed in the match, and now the team will have to avoid this against Delhi. Again in the match, everyone will look at Russell vs. Kagiso Rabada. Russell has become the strength of Kolkata. On their own, the team lives in confidence that if they are then they can win the match.
On the other hand, Rabada is currently on top of the list of bowlers with 11 wickets in the league. Delhi is also confident of winning its last match and the team wants that its batsmen perform well here too. Delhi is strong in the bowling and it has good bowlers like Chris Morris and Sandeep Lamichhane, besides Rabada.Tags:26th matchDelhi CapitalsEden Gardens groundKolkataKolkata Knight RidersMatch Today
