Match 26 VIVO IPL 2018: Daredevils look to revive their fortunes under new captain as they face KKR at home
With a new captain leading their side Delhi Daredevils will look to revive their lost fortunes against the Kolkata Knight Riders in match number 26 of VIVO IPL 2018 on Friday.

Shreyas Iyer, the youngest player to lead Delhi, will leave no stone unturned to start his captaincy stint on a winning note tonight at the Feroz Shah Kotla Stadiumin Delhi.

With just one win in six matches so far Delhi Daredevils are at the bottom of the eight-team points table. Now with 23-year-old Shreyas Iyer leading, DD hopes that this will bring some positives for them. Iyer has scored 157 runs in six matches so far at an average of 37.75, in the season, with two consecutive fifties. With names like Pacer Liam Plunkett, who took 3 wickets in his first IPL match and Trent Boult, the highest wicket taker for the team, DD's bowling just needs to click on the right occasion.

However, with three wins and three loses, KKR today return to the ground after five days of rest. Despite batting at five, skipper Dinesh Karthik is leading the team as the top run scorer, though opener Robin Uthappa is yet to perform big. Another batsman Nitish Rane, who is hitting the ball nicely can be dangerous for DD.

Spinners have been leading KKR's bowling as more than half of the wickets have gone to the spin trio of Sunil Narine, Kuldeep Yadav and Piyush Chawla. With a spinner friendly wicket at Kotla, KKR's bowling can turn the game in their team's favour.

Head to head KKR has 13 wins from the 20 overall games of the Indian Premier League played between the two sides.
