DC vs KKR IPL: After a brilliant confidence boosting win in their last match, the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) are ready to take on the Delhi Capitals (DC) at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad on April 29. The Eoin Morgan-led team registered a comprehensive victory over Punjab Kings in the last game but they would want to improve their overall numbers in this tournament having won just 2 of their 6 matches. KKR will be hoping to continue this winning momentum in this important game against Delhi Capitals.
The Kolkata Knight Riders are very much unlikely to make any changes to their winning combination. However, Shubman Gill’s miserable form with the bat at the top and there is Karun Nair on the bench who could be given an opportunity. But the KKR team management are likely to back Gill to return in form in this match against DC.
