The Kolkata Knight Riders and the Delhi Capitals meet in the IPL at the Sheikh Zayed Cricket Stadium in Abu Dhabi on Saturday. Both sides are still firmly in the hunt for a play-off place, making this encounter a big one.

Kolkata Knight Riders Form


The Kolkata Knight Riders have won five of their 10 fixtures in 2020 and are pushing for a place in the play-offs of the Indian Premier League.

Their last match served as a major wake-up call for the side from Kolkata, though, as they were humbled by the Royal Challengers Bangalore on Wednesday at the Sheikh Zayed Cricket Stadium in Abu Dhabi. The Knight Riders crawled their way to 84/8 in their 20 overs, before RCB reached the total with eight wickets and over six overs to spare.

It was a very poor performance from the Knight Riders and one they will be eager to put behind them as quickly as possible.

Delhi Capitals Form


The Delhi Capitals are enjoying a solid 2020 IPL campaign, having won seven of their ten matches to date, but they won't be happy with the way things ended in their last match.

The Capitals went down by five wickets to the Kings XI Punjab on Tuesday at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium. The side from Delhi posted a very competitive 164/5, but their bowlers struggled to contain a free-scoring Kings XI Punjab, who reached the total with six balls to spare.

Shikhar Dhawan was once again outstanding for the Capitals, scoring 106 not out off 61 balls. This century was his second successive ton after his brilliant 101 not out against the Chennai Super Kings.
