The toss and other details will be updated shortly. Follow the KKR vs DD live score here.
KKR opened their first match against defending champions Mumbai Indians in style with a huge 41-run win, and this will bring a confident squad to the field today.
There can be some shuffle in the team today as Yusuf Pathan has taken off to be with his newborn baby and wife, and that makes space for Ryan ten Doeschate.
The team can also opt for Andre Russell as a replacement for some batting line support. Sunil Narine and skipper Gambhir need to work on form today.
DD, on the other hand, must overcome their loss to Royal Challengers Bangalore in the first match, where the top batting line failed miserably.
The team had to quickly change the skipper to Dinesh Karthik at the last minute as Kevin Pietersen dealt with an injury. Even for today’s match, Pietersen’s availability is unknown for now, and if Karthik plays the role, he has to work on using the options better.
With the missing skipper, much hope lies on Murali Vijay and JP Duminy.
Kolkata Knight Riders have won six of the eleven matches played against Delhi Daredevils, but that edge might just not matter here.
