IPL 2018 LIVE Score KKR vs DD Live Cricket Score: Gautam Gambhir is back at the Eden Gardens but this time as the captain of Delhi Daredevils who square off against Kolkata Knight Riders this evening. The former KKR captain is returning for a scalp. Both the losses that KKR have suffered so far have come from tactical blunders – handing the ball to Vinay Kumar in a tense last over against Chennai Super Kings and mismanagement of resources against Sunrisers Hyderabad.
Dinesh Karthik is chained to a harsh spotlight and now has to face the man against whom he will always be judged. Gambhir could not expect better circumstances for his return to Eden Gardens. He may not spark widespread emotional turmoil like Sourav Ganguly did while stepping out in opposition colours, but the atmosphere should still be interesting to behold.
Sunil Narine loves bowling to Daredevils. He has got 20 wickets from 11 innings – his second best against IPL teams, after his 26 against King XI – coupled with an economy rate of 6.3. He is also in red hot form and has scored over 70 runs in the two matches.
However, Knight Riders’ Kamlesh Nagarkoti has been ruled out of the season without playing a single match, with Karnataka seamer Prasidh Krishna replacing him. As for Chris Morris of DD, he missed the previous match with illness and it is not clear yet if he will be featuring in today’s game.
Pitch Condition: The Eden Gardens track is considered as one of the better batting surfaces although spinners tend to come into action as the match wears on. Spinners have enjoyed bowling here in IPL games as well.
