After an emphatic Super Over win at Feroz Shah Kotla, the rejigged Delhi Capitals would be eyeing to outplay Kolkata Knight Riders at their den in Eden Gardens tonight. While the hosts faced 7 wickets drubbing at the hands of Chennai Super Kings in the last game, Delhi Capitals registered 4 wickets win over Royal Challengers Bangalore and will be coming after the four-day break.
The last time both the teams met at Feroz Shah Kotla, the match went into Super Over and Kagiso Rabada turned out to be the hero of the match with his brilliant yorkers. Something similar is expected tonight as both the teams reload for the second head to head encounter this season.
