New Delhi: Dinesh Karthik-led Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) will look to get their Indian Premier League (IPL) 2018 campaign back on track when they take on struggling Delhi Daredevils in New Delhi on Friday. The fourth-placed side was beaten by Kings XI Punjab in their previous match. DD, who will be playing their first match under new skipper Shreyas Iyer, will also aim to regain momentum after winning just one out of their last six games which prompted Gautam Gambhir to hand his resignation.
