Delhi Daredevils take on the Kolkata Knight Riders in Match 18 of IPL 10 at the Ferozshah Kotla stadium. Both teams have been in great form in this year's IPL and come into the match on the back of convincing victories.
Delhi Daredevils have been boosted by the form of their young players Rishabh Pant and Sanju Samson. Shreyas Iyer was back into the team in the last game and he is expected to provide the much-needed firepower to the batting order. Corey Anderson was in great form in the last game and would look to carry on his great form.
Kolkata, on the other hand, are one of the most balanced teams in the tournament and have showcased that this season as well. Although they have lost Chris Lynn to injury, the other players have stepped up in his absence.
Both teams are expected to retain their winning combination.
Fantasy Pick Batsman: Manish Pandey
KKR's Mr. Consistent has had another good start to the IPL season and would be looking to carry on his good form. Pandey is a destructive batsman and takes the game away from the opposition in a matter of overs. While players like Gambhir and Uthappa attract all the limelight, it is Pandey who is the backbone of KKR's batting is expected to quietly go about his business.

Fantasy Pick Bowler: Shahbaz Nadeem
The spinner from Jharkhand has been one of the most consistent performers for Delhi Daredevils as well as his Ranji team and has lived up to his reputation in this season's IPL as well. Nadeem has bowled with the new ball and has picked up important wickets. He is keeping a spinner like Jayant Yadav out of the team and that is no mean feat. We expect him to produce a good performance again.
Fantasy Pick all-rounder: Chris Morris
The South African all-rounder has been superb, to say the least having contributed with both bat and ball. Morris picked up 3 wickets last game and has also smashed 38 off just 9 balls in one one of the games and is destructive when on song. Morris has been a wonderful buy for Delhi and would like to continue more of the same.
Chris Morris faced 9 balls and this is what he has done

Punt Player: Shreyas Iyer
The Mumbai lad has only played one game this season as he was suffering from chicken pox but still played a vital hand. Iyer is one of the most talented players in the country and is devastating on his day. Iyer would look to get back into his groove and hand DD another victory against one of the strongest opponents in the league.
The match starts at 4:00 PM IST with viewers having the option of watching it live on either Set Max (Hindi) or Sony Six HD (English). The game can also be streamed on Hotstar.com
