Purple Army will be looking to bounce back in style after their loss to RCB by 8 wickets. They were blown away by Mohammed Siraj’s furious spell, KKR managed just 84 runs on the board. Now sitting at fourth place in the table with 10 points, they would be desperate to increase their tally to stay alive in the play-offs race.
DC will also be eager to make amends following their loss against Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) in their last game. While both the teams are currently in the top half of the points table, a win will help them strengthen their position.
Whereas, in the second game of the day Kings XI Punjab [KXIP Full Squad] will face Sunrisers Hyderabad [SRH Full Squad] in a battle of survival.
