New Delhi: The good thing about the match between Delhi Daredevils and Kolkata Knight Riders at the Feroz Shah Kotla today is that at least one of them will win.

But knowing their luck, it might rain. KKR played one of the most amazing matches of IPL. A 121-run opening stand between Gautam Gambhir and Robin Uthappa against Rajasthan Royals at Motera on Tuesday was followed by an incredible six wickets going down for two runs.

One wonders if KKR will be able to recover from that blow. They have forgotten how to win and this reverse, especially when they were looking set for a win, must be killing for their psyche.

Their situation isn't helped by Gambhir's body language. Nor by his rather uninspiring captaincy in crunch situations.

Delhi aren't in any better shape. Kotla was a disaster for them in IPL-6 and this edition isn't looking much better either.

But at least Kevin Pietersen and his side put up a valiant fight against Chennai on Monday. That they still ended up losing has more to do with confidence than anything else.

That said, if the two sides were to face off, one could assume Daredevils may well be better placed mentally. They did, after all, do well with the bat.
