Delhi Daredevils (DD), who are going through a tumultuous time will look to storm back to the winning ways under their newly-appointed captain Shreyas Iyer when they square off against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) at the Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium on April 27 (Friday).
Meanwhile, Gautam Gambhir stepped down from the captaincy role taking responsibility for the poor performance.
The young batsman from Mumbai, Iyer, will now be at the helm of Delhi team. He will be eager to bring out the best from his players right from the word go.
It is important for him to first earn the faith and respect of his teammates after which the team will start gelling well together.
Dinesh Karthik and his team will be refreshed after a considerable break. They will be eager to hit the straps and get back the winning momentum again.
Moreover, the tournament is moving forward faster than ever and the race to qualify for the playoffs has started now.
However, Delhi, who finds themselves at the bottom of the IPL 2018 points table will have to make an early move.
It will be a challenging clash as Delhi will go for the revenge as they lost the last encounter in Eden Gardens against Knight Riders.
As per a report according to Accu Weather, it is extremely hot in the capital city. The temperatures are hovering around 41-degree Celcius and will remain the same.
Meanwhile, the summer season has settled down in Delhi and there are no chances of rain at all in the city.
However, it will get a bit hazy by the time the match starts but the temperatures will remain in the high 30s. The heat is likely to take a lot out of the players.
It will be tough for the bowlers in the second-half as the dew will settle in and play a major part.
The team chasing will have an added advantage so both the skippers will look to bowl first which has been a norm in this ongoing season in particular.
But Delhi Daredevils would be having an extra pressure following the poor show so far in the domestic professional league.
