Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) will be roaring high on confidence after another comprehensive run chase last night against the Rising Pune Supergiant (RPS) at their home turf. They made a mockery of the total of 180 that looked good on a pitch that looked a bit up and down. They now sit pretty at the top of the table with 12 points. Everything has been going right for KKR as someone or the other picks their hand up in every other match. Whenever one thinks that they have got KKR on the edge, someone takes up the responsibility and get their team over the line.
Their batting looks very settled with Robin Uthappa, Manish Pandey, Yusuf Pathan and Captain Gautam Gambhir all looking in very good form. Their bowling also has a very good mix of fast bowlers and spinners in the form of Nathan Coulter-Nile, Umesh Yadav, Kuldeep Yadav and Sunil Narine all in good rhythm.
On the other hand, Delhi Daredevils will be very disappointed in the way they have played their last 2 games. They failed to chase down 191 against the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) after looking on course to chase down the total and lost by 15 runs. And in their next game failed to chase down a mere 142 against the Mumbai Indians (MI) after being reduced to 26-6 and again lost the game by 15 runs in the end.
They are again making the mistakes they made in the last season as they have again tinkered with their winning combinations in all the games and even Zaheer Khan’s tactics are now in doubt. But, they still have some players who are looking in good form. Chris Morris looks very well settled as a bowler as he is the second leading wicket-taker in the tournament and has also made some useful contributions with the bat. Mishra and Pat Cummings also look very handy with the ball. Sanju Samson and Rishabh Pant are the batsmen looking in good touch.
The last time these two met was at the Feroz Shah Kotla stadium in Delhi on April 17 and Kolkata won that game in a last over thriller with 4 wickets to spare. Coulter-Nile was their hero with the ball as he reduced the Delhi Daredevils (DD) to a total of 168 with the help of his 3 big scalps.
Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) were in big trouble initially with the bat as they were reduced to 21-3 in the first three overs of the chase. But Yusuf Pathan and Manish Pandey came together and made a brilliant 110 run stand to take the game away from Delhi and steer them home as Yusuf Pathan scored a blistering 59 and Manish Pandey scored a match-winning, unbeaten 69 off 49 balls. They will look to do the same tomorrow as they face them at their fortress at the Eden Gardens.
On the other hand, Delhi will look to shake KKR who are sitting pretty at the top and start their progress to finish in the top 4.
