Team News

Kolkata Knight Riders

  • Despite a loss in the last game while facing Chennai Super Kings, there would be no changes to the KKR line-up.
  • A huge worry for KKR heading into this one is that the fitness of West Indian all-rounder Andre Russell, who is predicted to miss out with a hamstring injury sustained within the field against Chennai, and his absence would prove a huge blow for Eoin Morgan’s side, with the experienced Shakib Al Hasan likely to put in his place.

Delhi Capitals

  • The franchise did the unexpected in the last game against Rajasthan Royals by handling only three overseas players. Marcus Stoinis was swapped with Lalit Yadav. If Stoinis is fit, he would grow back straightaway.
