Match and Pitch Condition
Weather: It would be a typical hot day in Delhi with the temperature around 40°C.
Pitch condition: The pitch of Kotla have been batting friendly in the past and the same kind of track is expected again. Delhi made 188 runs in the last match here batting first and won easily by 51 runs. The team winning the toss is expected to bowl first.
- After winning the last two matches, they are unlikely to tinker with the winning combination.
- Karun Nair’s form would be a worry to DD camp but they would want to give him another chance.
Kolkata Knight Riders:
- There is no clarity when Chris Lynn will be back. However, he is still unavailable for next match.
- KKR might bring in Shakib Al Hasan in place of Colin de Grandhomme on a pitch that often helps the spinners after the latter got out on 0 in the last match.
- For the Indian spinner’s spot, it could be a toss up between the two wrist spinners – Kuldeep Yadav and Piyush Chawla with the latter being the more likely contender.
