IPL 2013: Delhi Daredevils lock horns with defending champs Kolkata Knight Riders
The stage is all set and the fans have fastened their seatbelts as the Indian Premier League 2013 is going to kick off. The defending champions Kolkata Knight Riders face a stern test straightaway as they take on Delhi Daredevils in the opening encounter of the IPL season at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata.

Both sides have some terrific match-winners in their arsenal and both would be raring to go and put their best foot forward.

A SWOT analysis will give us a clear idea of where they stand against each other.

Delhi Daredevils:

Strength: A formidable batting line-up with batsmen like Mahela Jayawardene, David Warner and a quality pace bowling attack with Morne Morkel and Umesh Yadav bowling in tandem.

Weakness: Kevin Pietersen’s injury and Virender Sehwag’s niggle will affect the balance of the top-order.

Opportunities: Delhi Daredevils has the opportunity to avenge their IPL 2012 defeat in the Qualifier’s match against IPL Champions Kolkata Knight Riders.

Threats: Delhi Daredevils will have to avoid complacency; they have always done well but have faltered in crucial games.

Kolkata Knight Riders:

Strength: High on confidence, Kolkata Knight Riders would like to start this edition with a bang and their strength lies in their team’s balance and variety. Jacques Kallis’ experience and Brett Lee’s ability makes them a force to reckon with.

Weakness: A lot of options in the arsenal can be a boon and bane at the same time as it can make the job of skipper Gautam Gambhir and team management difficult on whom to pick and whom to drop.

Opportunities: They can beat Delhi in the opening match and get psychological advantage over them as first match always sets the tone for the rest of the tournament.

Threat: The expectations are going to be sky-high from the KKR side as they are the defending champions and coping up with that pressure and performing will not be that easy.
