Delhi and Kolkata will face each other in match 25 of the Indian T20 League as they begin their Ahmedabad leg of the season. Delhi are coming off a painful loss by 1 run against Bangalore. Kolkata, on the other hand, finally won a game after losing four consecutive matches. Eoin Morgan will be hoping that his troops will step up again, however, the top-order’s form is still a worry for them. Delhi are in good position at the moment and will be guarding against getting into a losing rut.

Top Picks of the match

Rishabh Pant (Delhi)

Rishabh Pant is close to delivering his best. He scored an unbeaten 58 off 48 deliveries against Bangalore but couldn’t win the game for his team. Pant will bat at four and the time has come for him to play a big knock. He also gains a lot of Fantasy points as a wicketkeeper.

Nitish Rana (Kolkata)

Nitish Rana started the tournament on a high but has lost the steam it seems. He opens the innings and the team will be expecting for him to deliver with time running out. Rana opens the innings and he might give a lot of Fantasy points if he gets going with the bat.

X-Factor Player

Avesh Khan

Avesh Khan has dismissed the likes of MS Dhoni and Virat Kohli this season so far. He has showed nerves of steel bowling in tough situations and picks wickets especially in death overs. Expect him to earn a lot of Fantasy points again.
