It was a tale of two very different outcomes for Kolkata Knight Riders and Delhi Daredevils in their 2014 IPL openers.
Kolkata started their campaign with a victory over 2013 champions Mumbai Indians, beating the holders by a convincing 41 runs.
Delhi meanwhile were hoping to improve on their bottom-placed finish last year, but did little to convince anybody with a poor display against Royal Challengers Bangalore in an eight-wicket loss.
The Daredevils were without captain and star batsman Kevin Pietersen for that match against RCB and there remain doubts over the Englishman’s fitness for this clash with KKR due to a finger injury.
In Pietersen’s absence against Bangalore their other overseas aces JP Duminy and Ross Taylor were required to save the franchise from 17-3 to finish 145-4.
Expensive new signing Dinesh Karthik will need to give a better showing against the Knight Riders, as will Mayank Agarwarl, Manoj Tiwary and Murali Vijay.
For Kolkata they will be looking towards veteran all-rounder Jacques Kallis and Manish Pandey once again, as the duo were impressive against Mumbai after skipper Gautam Gambhir had been dismissed early on.
