Delhi vs Kolkata in Indian T20 League

Speaking of the overall records, the gap between the two sides couldn’t be wider, with Kolkata winning the Indian Premier League 2 times, and reaching the playoffs a total of 6 times out of 12. The team struggled in the early seasons of the tournament, but turned over a new leaf with a better structure and management in place, with Delhi boy Gautam Gambhir at the helm.

However, over the last couple of years, the team has struggled a bit to hit the levels of consistency expected from them now. The management has chosen to invest heavily in young Indian stars like Shivam Mavi, Shubhman Gill, Nitish Rana and others, but there has been a clear over-reliance on the likes of Andre Russel and Sunil Narine to get the team out of tough conditions, time and time again. This season will be one of reckoning for the two time champions of Indian T20 Premier League. 

For Delhi, this season will be about continuing the good work and progress made in the last season after years of being in the turmoil. This is probably the first time in a while that the management has stuck with the same core of the squad, with some smart additions enhancing the depth of the team. The Shreyas Iyer led team would be raring to have a go at a Kolkata side still battling inconsistencies, and looking to even up the head to head to record with a couple of wins.
