New Delhi, April 20: For a long time, Delhi Daredevils had forgotten how to win a game. Now, all of a sudden, they have two successes in a row in the Indian Premier League 2015 (IPL 8). They will be aiming to maintain that momentum when they clash with defending champions Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) tonight.
DD defeated Kings XI Punjab and Sunrisers Hyderabad for two victories in a row after going through 11 consecutive defeats. Today's challenge against KKR will be a different one as the Gautam Gambhir-led side is not an easy opponent. KKR have so far won 2 and lost one. KKR start as favourites.
