Delhi Daredevils are gearing up to get their campaign back on track amid uncertainty over the availability of their best batsman Kevin Pietersen for the Indian Premier League match against Kolkata Knight Riders who will look to continue their winning momentum here on Saturday.

While the Daredevils were beaten black and blue by Royal Challengers Bangalore in their opening match, the Knight Riders kicked off their campaign in the best possible manner, posting a thumping 41-run win over defending champions Mumbai Indians. (Read full preview)

On a high after playing a crucial role in Kolkata Knight Riders' stunning Indian Premier League win over defending champions Mumbai Indians, Manish Pandey said reuniting with Jacques Kallis, the veteran with whom he previously played in the Royal Challengers Bangalore team, helped him rediscover some lost form.

Pandey's 64 and Kallis' 72 were the cornerstones of KKR's 163-run total, which helped them clinch a 41-run win over the fancied Mumbai. The duo's 131-run stand was the highlight of the IPL's opening match on Wednesday. (Reuniting with Kallis helped me: Pandey)
