Overview

Gautam Gambhir has led Kolkata Knight Riders to two IPL successes in 2012 and 2014. The left-handed opener will be keen on guiding his team to their third title in the ninth edition of the tournament.

They have a packed batting top order that includes the likes of Gambhir, Robin Uthappa and Manish Pandey, followed by the all-rounder trio of Yusuf Pathan, Andre Russell and Shakib Al Hasan.

The Delhi Daredevils have roped in Indian legend Rahul Dravid to their coaching staff. His addition will be vital for Zaheer Khan's side as they look to win the IPL for the first time.

West Indies' T20 World Cup hero Carlos Brathwaite, who scored four sixes in the first four deliveries of the last over of the tournament is included in Delhi's squad. He will play a key role with both ball and bat for the Daredevils. The Knight Riders have retained their key players from last season and that should give them the edge to win their first match on Sunday.
