Delhi Capitals are coming off a painful defeat in their previous game against RCB and they will now be playing against the Kolkata Knight Riders in their next fixture. The Delhi Capitals lost by one run against the Royal Challengers Bangalore with the game going into the wire and they have now lost two games and won four games so far in their campaign to be placed at the third position.

Shimron Hetmyer brought Delhi back into the game after Rishabh Pant and Stonis started to get the side back on track in the chase. Dhawan and Steve Smith fell early, while Prithvi Shaw was dismissed after getting a start.

Pant despite getting the half-century could not pace innings to the required run rate and to be honest, he did struggle to find the gaps. Here are 3 stars from Delhi Capitals who will be game-changers against Kolkata Knight Riders.

Shikhar Dhawan had an excellent start to the season but he has now got out early in two consecutive innings which is below his standards. Dhawan and Prithvi Shaw have been providing the much-needed starts at the top for Delhi and the former must look to continue his good run of form rather than giving away his wicket early.

Dhawan fell for just 6 runs in the previous game against RCB and the plan was set to bowl short to him with two fielders positioned for the mistimed hook shot. He found the fielder at the long leg and the impact has been straight away in the entire DC batting. Dhawan is second on the leading run-getters this season and he is an important member of the Delhi lineup.
