IPL 2018: Kolkata Knight Riders vs Delhi Daredevils preview and possible lineups

On Saturday, we were obviously 25-30 runs short with the bat and that put us under pressure.

Rana slog-swept Rahul Tewatia for a six to get started, and his 35-ball 59 became the fulcrum around which the innings revolved.

Maxwell and Pant gave Delhi hope but that was soon extinguished - Curran chipping in with the wicket of Tewatia - as the visitors slumped to a third defeat in four games and Kolkata moved up to second in the table.

The all-rounder inspired with both the bat and the ball as Hyderabad, despite making hard work of their chase of 139, managed to clinch it thanks to Shakib and Captain Kane Williams.

The LIVE action of Match 13 IPL 2018 Kolkata Knight Riders and Delhi Daredevils will be updated here once the Match Starts. Both fell in quick succession but a sumptuous knock from Nitish Rana and some ferocious hitting by Andre Russell ensured that Kolkata posted a healthy total of 200 runs. He went after the bowling attack right from the first ball and along with Nitish Rana, counterattacked the bowlers in the last five overs.

Chris Lynn and Robin Uthappa struck a partnership for the home side before the latter was dismissed for 35 runs. Sunil Narine shone with the ball for the Knights with 2/17 in his four overs but he wasn't defending a competitive score.

Lynn got into the groove by smashing Boult for back-to-back boundaries before Uthappa took Nadeem to the cleaners with two sixes and a four. KKR have lost their last two games and have some serious issues to fix with their team.

DD on the other hand brought in Jason Roy in place of Colin Munro in their previous match and that turned out to be a masterstroke. The young kid Shubman Gill is wasted in the lower middle order; KKR could instead include the in-form Ishank Jaggi, for his experience and his proven ability to strike the ball.

Gambhir too is expected to be among runs at Eden Gardens. On the changes front, we don't see changes for Delhi, unless a fit Chris Morris makes his way back for Dan Christian.

The live match IPL 2018 Kolkata Knight Riders vs Delhi Daredevils will be broadcasted on Star Sports 1, Star Sports 1 HD, Star Sports Select 1 and Star Sports Select 1 HD in English Commentary.
