The Delhi Capitals (DC) and the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) are separated by four points. On the back of contrasting results, DC and KKR gear up to face each other in Match 25 of IPL 2021 at the Motera Stadium in Ahmedabad on Thursday (April 29).

DC captain Rishabh Pant won his third successive toss and opted to bowl first at a venue where the dew factor might have a role to play later in the evening. DC made one change to the side which agonisingly fell short by a solitary run versus the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) on Tuesday.

Leg-spinner Amit Mishra misses out owing to a shoulder injury, and batting all-rounder Lalit Yadav has replaced him in the side. The third-placed team can avail the services of three specialist quicks and a lone spinner in Axar Patel. DC's four foreign picks are Steve Smith, Shimron Hetmyer, Marcus Stoinis and Kagiso Rabada.

KKR, on the other hand, fielded the same line-up which went past the Punjab Kings (PBKS) by five wickets on Monday. The fifth-placed side boasts a bowling attack comprising of three frontline pacers and two tweakers in Varun Chakravarthy and Sunil Narine. Their four overseas players are Morgan, Andre Russell, Pat Cummins and Narine.
