Kolkata Knight Riders vs Delhi Capitals - A rivalry refreshed

The storyline of the Kolkata Knight Riders and the Delhi Capitals is one of stark contrast. The Delhi Capitals (formerly Delhi Daredevils) were a team that started off as a championship contender but then fizzled out quickly after the initial years of the IPL.

The 2020 Kolkata Knight Riders vs Delhi Capitals scoreboard looks to tell a similar story of what has always been but matches are not fought on paper and anything could happen on the field.
