Here are the five things to look out for in the second match – KXIP vs DD
Gautam Gambhir captaining Delhi Daredevils
The mercurial left-hander is back to his home ground. After having such a successful time at the Kolkata Knight Riders, Gautam Gambhir in the twilight of his career will be hoping to win the coveted trophy for his birth city. The agreement was mutual as even the Knight Riders were not interested in persisting with Gambhir.
The opening batsman has been consistent in the IPL for the last two season. In 2017, he scored 498 runs in 16 matches at an impressive average of 41.50 including four half-centuries. Along with the batting, captaincy will be also crucial for Gambhir. He along with the coach Ricky Ponting will want to optimize the excellent talent pool that DD has.
