Gautam Gambhir was one of two players retained by Kolkata. He is the team's captain. He has gone from being one half India's primary Test opening partnership to having not played for the country in over a year. He was out for an eight-ball duck in Kolkata's opening game and will be eager to contribute a lot more, soon.
Dinesh Karthik will be the Delhi captain, should Kevin Pietersen not return. He was the second-most expensive buy at the 2014 auction, with Delhi paying Rs 12.5 crore (US$ 2 million approx) for him. He has played for India as a specialist batsman on several occasions. He last got his chance for the country behind and in front of the stumps in the Asia Cup in March, when Dhoni was injured, but didn't impress. He was also out for a duck in his team's opener. He, too, has much to prove and will be eager to do so sooner rather than later.
Kolkata's top three - Gambhir, Kallis and Pandey - are joint holders of an unwanted record: most ducks by recognised batsmen in the league. Each of them have eight, and only Amit Mishra has more.
The last match Delhi won was against Kolkata in 2013 - they have lost seven in a row since
