Looking at JP Duminy batting exploit in the tournament so far, he has to come up the order if Delhi wishes to score more runs. Delhi's bowlers have looked decent, which includes Mohammed Shami, Shahbaz Nadeem, Jaidev Unadkat and Wayne Parnell. They definitely miss the services of Nathan Coulter-Nile.
Kolkata, on the other hand, have more worries. They have lost 4 consecutive games and would be desperate for a win in their bag. In their last match against Rajasthan, they were over complacent and lost a game, which they should have won. Kolkata has a decent side, but luck does not seem to be on their side.
Delhi: JP Duminy, Kedar Jadhav, Kevin Pietersen, Manoj Tiwary, Mayank Agarwal, Milind Kumar, Murali Vijay, Ross Taylor, Saurabh Tiwary, Jayant Yadav, Jimmy Neesham, Laxmi Shukla, Dinesh Karthik, Quinton de Kock, HS Sharath, Jaydev Unadkat, Mohammed Shami, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Rahul Sharma, Rahul Shukla, Shahbaz Nadeem, Siddarth Kaul, Wayne Parnell
