The Verdict


Delhi haven't been as consistent in the second half of the tournament as they were in earlier matches but they get my vote to reach the final here.


For additional interest Sunil Narine as top KKR bowler takes the eye after his Man of the Match performance against RCB at this ground in the eliminator.

Top KKR Bowler Sunil Narine at 33/10
