In pics: Weather update
The weather in Delhi is cloudy and we may expect rain during the match
The first week of the Indian Premier League has seen some nail-biting encounters and one team that has ensured edge-of-the-seat entertainment is Kolkata Knight Riders. Having won both their games so far, they have come here to take on the Delhi Capitals in their third game of IPL 2019
While KKR have been on a roll, Delhi Capitals have had a mixed fate. While they thrashed Mumbai Indians in their opening game, they lost to Chennai Super Kings at home in their second game. Going into their third game of the season, DC will want to put the campaign back on track and avoid getting stuck like in the last few seasons.
Drafted into the team at the start of the season by DC to cement the batting, India opener Shikhar Dhawan has failed to provide the quickfire starts at the top. While he has scored runs in both the games, including a 50 in the last game against CSK, his scoring rate has left a lot to be desired.
In fact, head coach Ricky Ponting accepted after the CSK game that he would ideally want Dhawan to score a little fast so that there isn't unnecessary pressure on someone like Rishabh Pant. The DC batting has again looked to rely heavily on Pant to provide the finishing touches towards the end of the innings.
