This time around he will be wearing the blue and red jersey of Delhi and will face Dinesh Karthik and co, when these two teams collide in the much anticipated clash at Eden Gardens on Monday. Meanwhile, Narine became the first foreign spinner to pick 100 IPL wickets. The spinners gave away just 60 runs from their 12 overs and picked up three wickets between them in the previous match, but KKR will quickly have to address their fast bowling woes soon. But after seeing recent performances, DD will still have an upper hand keeping in mind the fact that KKR's star captain Gautam Gambhir is no longer with them. We feel that in the first three games, potentially we could have won all three.
Kolkata removed three Delhi batsmen including Jason Roy and Gambhir inside the first three overs, derailing their chase, but Pant was playing a blinder.More news: Who are the Windrush generation and why are they facing deportation?
The trend will be broken eventually but over the first ten games of IPL 11, only the rain-affected match between Rajasthan and Delhi has gone to the side batting first. Momentum too is on their side and could play a huge factor in the match. Without the distraction of Sunil Narine at the other end, the Australian was free to dominate and he should press on in this tournament if he can keep clear of injury.More news: Ant McPartlin pleads guilty to drink-driving after collision with two cars
Lynn got into the groove by smashing Boult for back-to-back boundaries before Uthappa took Nadeem to the cleaners with two sixes and a four. Against Sunrisers Hyderabad, they fought hard right to the end despite scoring a modest 138-8 SRH's run-chase got tricky, but they eventually got across the line with one over to spare.
Overall, Delhi Daredevils look like a side ready to roar while KKR have to do some strategic changes before they come across as a more confident team. The spell was divided between India's Mohammed Shami and Kiwi quick Trent Boult. Like Uthappa, captain Dinesh Karthik looked good in his brief innings of 19. As the 16th April seems like the pitch update and weather reports sound calm for the T20 match between KKR vs DD.More news: Concluding ceremony of Commonwealth Games held at Gold Coast
