While Kolkata comes with a lose. Kolkata has 3 changes in their team as they bring Joe Denly, Charlos Braithwaite and Lockie Ferguson in the place of Sunil Narine, Chris Lynn and Gurney. So both the openers of Kolkata are injured and it was questioned arise on skipper about who will open the innings and finest Kartik decided that Shubman gill and Joe Denly will open the innings. But Joe Denly was clean bowled in the first over of the innings of Ishant Sharma.

In the ninth over Robin Uthappa was out in the bowling of Rabada. Later on, wicket starts falling and they lose Nitish Rana, Dinesh Kartik and Andrew Russell. But the score was above 160 runs and so they have now average total on the board and now everything was on the bowlers to defend the total. It was a good chance for Delhi capitals to win the match as it was the average score in this ground. Prithvi Shaw and Shikhar Dhawan gave a good start for the team before Prithvi shaw back to pavilion at the team score of 32 in 3rd over.
