The Delhi Capitals, who suffered a close loss by one run in their last match, will take on Kolkata Knight Riders in the 25th match of the 14th season of the IPL to be held at the Narendra Modi Stadium on Thursday. Delhi had suffered a close defeat by one run to Royal Challengers Bangalore in their last match, while they had beaten Sunrisers Hyderabad in the Super in their previous match.
Kolkata, on the other hand, had defeated the Punjab Kings by five wickets in their previous match, but before that they had to face defeat in four consecutive matches. The team has won only two of its six matches so far this season, while Delhi has won four matches in six so far.
