Mumbai | Jagran Sports Desk: Delhi Capitals will look to put the 'no-ball' controversy behind them and gain much-needed momentum against another side seeking course correction, the Kolkata Knight Riders, in the Indian Premier League at the Wankhede Stadium on Thursday.

Delhi suffered a 15-run loss against Rajasthan Royals, a game marred by a no-ball controversy over a high full toss that resulted in a one-match ban for assistant coach Pravin Amre. Delhi Capitals are currently seventh on the points table with three wins in seven outings. KKR are placed eighth having lost their last four games.

With the Delhi batting line-up comprising David Warner, Prithvi Shaw, Rishabh Pant and Powell, KKR's varied attack has to be on guard to stop the rampage. Warner, after striking three back to back fifties, faltered against the Royals and would need itching to play another impactful knock. Pant will need to take greater responsibility along with the likes of all-rounders Lalit Yadav, Shardul Thakur and Axar Patel.

Meanwhile, KKR needs to get their combination right and the batters, including skipper Iyer, will have to put up an improved show. Shreyas failed in the last game and so did the opening pair of Sam Billings and Sunil Narine. If they continue with the same openers, the two would need to give an aggressive start.

For the likes of Shreyas, Nitish Rana, Rinku Singh and Venkatesh Iyer, it won't be an easy task, especially against in form Delhi spinners. Pushing Venkatesh down in the middle order has also not worked yet. Shreyas has said it was just a matter of time and once KKR gets going, they will be unstoppable as a team.
