Delhi vs KKR: Battle for survival

May 01, 2013, 09:29 IST | Agencies

Following their win against struggling Pune Warriors, Delhi Daredevils will look to shock defending champions Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) here today

The Daredevils vs KKR match will be a battle of survival for both teams. Daredevils have lost seven matches while KKR have lost six out of their nine outings. 

Both KKR and Daredevils have big names who have failed to fire till now. Though Daredevils’ Aussie opener David Warner played a good knock of 25-ball 51 against Pune Warriors, captain Mahela Jayawardene is due for runs along with Unmukt Chand. But they would need a special effort from Virender Sehwag, who hasn’t done enough considering his stature. For KKR, skipper Gautam Gambhir and Eoin Morgan have done decently, but Yusuf Pathan’s poor form has affected the team severely.
