Beaming with confidence after winning two matches on the trot, a resurgent Delhi Daredevils will be eager to keep the momentum going when they take on two-time Indian Premier League (IPL) champions Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) at the Feroz Shah Kotla in New Delhi on Monday.
Going into Monday's first double header, the match promises to be an exciting contest between third-placed Delhi's famed pace battery and KKR's top order batting.
With the likes of South African quick Kasigo Rabada and India's Mohammed Shami still warming the bench, Delhi can boast of a bowling line-up which can demolish any side on their day.
The return of Shreyas Iyer consolidated the middle order and he along with Rishabh Pant can take the bowlers to the cleaners with ease. Karun Nair will also be hoping to get back his mojo back. Delhi's spin duo of Amit Mishra and Shahbaz Nadeem have consistently been among the wickets, besides putting the brakes on the scoring rate in the middle overs.
On the other hand, KKR can take a lot of input on the nature of wicket from their Delhi-born captain Gautam Gambhir, who has been in prime form in the tournament so far. With the likes of West Indian mystery spinner Sunil Narine, India's Kuldeep Yadav, Piyush Chawla, Umesh Yadav and Trent Boult in their ranks, the visitors will certainly be a test for the relatively young Delhi batting line-up.
