After securing two wins in two home encounters, Kolkata Knight Riders are in the national capital to face off Delhi Capitals in their encounter. Both the teams will face each other at Feroz Shah Kotla in the second fixture of Saturday’s doubleheader. The match will begin at 08:00 PM IST.
In the first fixture of Saturday’s doubleheader, Kings XI Punjab will be seen hosting Mumbai Indians at Mohali in their first home fixture.
Delhi Capitals faced 6 wickets defeat in the last encounter against Chennai Super Kings and would be looking to bounce back while Kolkata Knight Riders would be eyeing a hat-trick of wins. Andre Russell, who was the key player in both the games for Kolkata Knight Riders, will be once again Kolkata’s go to man while Delhi Capitals will be looking to bank on Rishabh Pant’s wallop. It will be interesting to watch both the power-hitters against each other.
