Kolkata, April 29: There are lot of similarities between the two teams. Over the years, their performances have been bit inconsistent.

However, the fact remains, one team has won the Indian Premier League (IPL) title twice, while for the other team, it has been a distance dream so far. 

There are some key players and support staff in both teams, who were previously with the other one.

However, the fact remains, when Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), the two times Indian Premier League champions,  play Delhi Capitals  (DC) on Monday, at the Eden Gardens, their home ground, the pitch and atmosphere  somewhat suits them better.

Both sides have two quality spinners too, who may dominate proceedings at Eden Gardens. If KKR have Sunil Narine and Varun Chakaravarthy, then Delhi have Keldeep Yadav and Axar Patel.

Interestingly, Narine and Patel are explosive batters, while Kuldeep and Varun are out and out quality spinners.

KKR captain Shreyas Iyer and their mentor Gautam Gambhir were at one time with Delhi Capitals. Similarly, Kuldeep was with KKR previously.

As they face at the Eden in the 47th match of the IPL 2024, in the reverse fixtures, past records may not be a much significance.

However, for the record, KKR had won the previous match against DC at Visakhapatnam earlier this month. 

Besides, KKR are placed second in the points table with five wins in eight matches while DC are sitting fifth with 10 points from 10 matches.

Kolkata and Delhi have met 32 times in the IPL so far with KKR winning 16 times and DC winning 15. One game ended with no result.

Kolkata Knight Riders: 16

Delhi Capitals: 15
