In the second match on Thursday in the double header match in the 14th season of the Indian Premier League, the Kolkata Knight Riders will play against the Delhi Capitals . While Delhi had lost in a close match against Bangalore, Kolkata had defeated Punjab Kings in the last match.

KKR have been troubled by the batsmen’s poor performance since the beginning. His talented opener Shubman Gill is struggling to score runs. He has scored only 89 runs in six matches so far. KKR’s bowling division, especially spinners Sunil Narine and Varun Chakraborty, have been successful in curbing the batsmen of the opposition team but the failure of the top-order batsmen is hurting them a lot.

In the last match against Punjab Kings, KKR’s top order was shattered in front of easy target of 124 runs and their score was reduced to 17 runs for three wickets. After that, captain Eoin Morgan took the responsibility and broke the team’s four-match losing streak. Delhi Capitals have batsmen like Shikhar Dhawan (265 runs), Prithvi Shaw, Steve Smith and captain Rishabh Pant and the KKR batsmen will have to put in extra effort to match them.

Pitch and Conditions:

The scene has now moved to the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad, and the early signs reveal that the pitch is a decent one for batting. The batsmen can make hay if they are prudent in the early goings, as they can cash in once they get their eye in.

Shikhar Dhawan, Prithvi Shaw, Steve Smith, Rishabh Pant (C & WK), Marcus Stoinis, Shimron Hetmyer, Axar Patel, Amit Mishra, Ishant Sharma, Kagiso Rabada, Avesh Khan
