Delhi Capitals made a good start against Mumbai Indians (MI), winning their opening game at the Wankhede Stadium. However, the team, led by Shreyas Iyer, lost by six wickets to defending champions Chennai Super Kings (CSK) at the Feroz Shah Kotla in New Delhi. Their next encounter is against the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) at the same venue and would want to make amends.

Last year, the Delhi-franchise beat KKR at the very venue and they can take heart from the victory. On the contrary, KKR are at the top of the points table after their thumping victory against Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) at the Eden Gardens. The hulk-like Andre Russell has turned out to be a brute force and he is one man who can again make a difference and carve the Knight Riders’ third straight triumph.
