Kolkata 12/0 after 2 overs. Smith and Dhawan have steered Delhi to a steady start. Dhawan has also picked the Orange Cap again with a boundary off Warrier in the first over. Samson (433 runs) and Rahul (401) are second and third respectively.
KKR have made a couple of changes with injured all-rounder Andre Russell and out-of-form pacer Prasidh Krishna making way for Kiwi quick Tim Southee and fast bowler Sandeep Warrier.
Eoin Morgan: We’re bowling first. I don’t know what the wicket will be like, but it’s not a belter, and not too bad, so somewhere in between. Setting a score might be a challenge, so we’ll try bowling. As a team we are focussed on taking it game by game.
Rishabh Pant: We were looking to bat first anyway. We don’t really know what the conditions are like. 150-160 should be good, since the wicket looks slow. We are looking to take one match at a time, and hope we can win this game and qualify for the playoffs for sure.
Playing XI of DC and KKR
For the Capitals, the injured Prithvi Shaw made way for Australian Steve Smith in the playing XI.
DC are placed second in the pecking order with eight wins and 16 points from 10 outings, while two-time winners KKR find themselves in the fourth position with four wins and six defeats. [KKR vs DC Dream11 Prediction, IPL 2021]
