Delhi Capitals and Kolkata Knight Riders will clash with each other from 7:30 p.m. today. This match will be played at Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai. The wicket is likely to help the fast bowlers in the beginning. However, the wicket could be better for batting later. This will be the second match between the two teams this season. For the first time, the bet was in the hands of Delhi.
Rishabh Pant against Rajasthan has been severely criticized in the cricket world. The manner in which he gestured both his batsmen to return to the pavilion on the no-ball controversy, is not being much liked. In such a situation, today Rishabh will try his best to silence the critics with a big victory.
This season has been mixed for Kolkata Knight Riders. Pat Cummins, who won him the match with the fastest half-century of the season, was also shown the way out of the team. The exclusion of a large number of players from the playing XI means that Kolkata is yet to find its best 11.

We have seen a good batting track in Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai. RR had scored 222 against the DC in the last match of Delhi on this ground of this season. There is some assistance for bowlers also in the initial period of innings.
Most of the strips are of Red soil, which gives good bounce and pace to bat on. We can't forget the whole IPL is going to play in only 4 venues so there will be some assistance for spin also in the mid-period of the tournament.
