IPL 2103: KKR vs Delhi Daredevils
Delhi Daredevils and Kolkata Knight Riders have been major disappointments in this IPL season with both the teams placed at the bottom of the rankings' table. However, clash between the teams is always special and fans can cherish that moment when the teams clash later tonight at International Cricket Stadium, Raipur.

Daredevils, once again, depend on Virender Sehwag's exploits with the bat. David Warner and Mahela Jayawardene hold the key to the batting of Daredevils, but both have lacked in consistency, which has been the main reason for their low ranking in IPL 2013. A lot was also expected from the India under-19 captain, Unmukt Chand in the Delhi Daredevils shirt, but he has been one of the biggest flops.

There is nothing much to write about the DD bowlers with only Umesh Yadav finding a place in top 10 IPL 2013 bowlers with 11 wickets so far. But, other bowlers such as Ashish Nehra and Irfan Pathan have only bowled well in patches. The story is no different about the defending champions, KKR with the only bright spot being the bowling of Sunil Narine who has taken 15 wickets so far.

Eoin Morgan and Gautam Gambhir have been scoring consistent runs, but other players such as Yusuf Pathan and Jacques Kallis have still not proved themselves with the bat. However, Gambhir's bad run in the last two matches is a major worry, for they depend on their skipper to provide the middle order with a solid platform.

Practically, it looks impossible for either of the teams to make it past the ground stages, though they have seven matches still left to play. The fans of both the sides would still remain positive and see a slim chance of getting through, which might turn out to be true only if they win all their remaining matches. Both the teams are aware of the monumental task that lies ahead.
