After a brilliant match which produced plenty of drama in the last over, seeing Chennai Super Kings get over the line off a last-ball six for their 6th win this season, the action now moves to Eden Gardens. Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) vs Delhi Capitals (DC) will be another game to look out for as the hosts face a stern challenge of Andre Russel and Kolkata Knight Riders, who are a formidable side at their home fortress.
Once again the West Indian duo of Andre Russel and Sunil Narine will be the focus as the change of administration at Cricket West Indies has created new hopes for the veteran cricketers to be a part of West Indies at the World Cup 2019. The young guns of Delhi Capitals will also be pumped up to hold back KKR on their home ground and register another win.

Kagiso Rabada has started enjoying his IPL stint as he is among the leading wicket-takers this season. He is an impact player and he will be the key against a strong KKR batting lineup. It remains to be seen how DC plan against KKR and if they plan on choking with spin, Amit Mishra and Sandeep Lamichhane might both get a go.
Kolkata has a pretty settled XI and no change is expected for tonight’s clash.
