Kolkata Knight Riders Vs Delhi Daredevils Match 32
Question in detail
Kolkata Knight Riders Vs Delhi Daredevils, match No. 32, Eden Gardens: Delhi's quest for the playoff appears to be a tall order. Kolkata, on the contrary, is almost at the doorstep. KKR leapfrogged Mumbai to top the table after a comfortable win in the one-sided affair against Pune on April 26. Tying up on points (12) with Mumbai Indians, Kolkata need one more win in their remaining 6 matches to emerge as the first qualifier of the playoff round. They have won all their matches with affair margin. So, their chances to become the winner of KKR Vs DD match are higher than Delhi's at Eden Gardens.
Gautam Gambhir has set the standard leading his team from front. Reveling in the top spot as a batsman, Gambhir has scored 305 runs in 8 innings so far. Also, the other batsmen including Robin Uthappa, Manish Pandey and Sunil Narine have been the major contributors in leading the side on the net run rate. In a sublime touch both with bat and ball, in-form Knight Riders have been a side to reckon with in this IPL season.
Delhi Daredevils is far from unlocking the doors to the playoff round. They are yet to win 5 out of their 8 remaining games. The task is difficult, but not impossible. Going into their 7th game, Delhi would eye a win to tone up their playoff chances. But, beating KKR would be a hard nut to crack for Delhi given the fact their batting and bowling have been off colored this IPL season. 4 losses in 6 games are enough to testify their failure as a team. However, the case is not new to them. They began their IPL campaign much like the way they had it in the last couple of seasons.
Becoming the winner of KKR Vs DD match would be more than a just an uphill task at hand. However, if Delhi moils, they can revive their fortunes in Kolkata Knight Riders Vs Delhi Daredevils match at Eden Gardens.
