Information on how to watch Monday’s Kolkata Knight Riders vs. Delhi Daredevils IPL cricket match live online from Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium in Delhi can be found below.
Led by upbeat Captain and South African international J.P. Duminy, Delhi started the 2015 IPL season appearing as if they’d changed nothing from the style that earned them a disheartening nine straight losses to finish off the 2014 campaign.
But they took heart from the fact that their losses in their first two games this season each came down to the final ball. The belief that only luck separated them from a 2-0, rather than 0-2 record gave Duminy’s crew the morale to keep fighting.
They won their next two in similar fashion, nipping Punjab on an Angelo Mathews boundary with one ball to go, then hanging on to the final ball to preserve a four-run margin over Sunrisers Hyderabad — a game in which Duminy himself came in to bowl and stunned Hyderabad by taking four wickets.
In the defending champs’ previous game, Andre Russell rescued the Knight Riders who had appeared desperate when they sank to just 60 for five wickets against KXIP. The 26-year-old Jamaican ripped 66 off just 36 balls to propel KKR to four wicket victory in just 17.5 overs.
Delhi and Kolkata are now tied at four points, with two wins apiece, but the Knight Riders’ superior net run rate places them a notch above the Daredevils in the standings.
