The Delhi Capitals (DC) lock horns with the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in Qualifier 2 of IPL 2021 on Wednesday, 13th October, at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium in Sharjah.
DC showcased a great batting display against CSK. Prithvi Shaw led from the front with an excellent half-century. A series of wickets then forced skipper Rishabh Pant to rebuild the innings. His half-century and another crucial knock from Shimron Hetmyer helped DC reach 173/5 in 20 overs.
Tom Curran’s excellent middle-overs bowling brought them back into the game, with CSK losing two wickets in a quick interval.
However, it was the skipper MS Dhoni who smashed Tom Curran in the last over, with DC required to defend 13 off the last six balls. As a result, DC will now have to beat KKR to advance to the Finals.
Kolkata Knight Riders:
KKR on the other hand displayed another outstanding bowling performance to restrict Virat Kohli’s RCB to an average total in Sharjah.
The spinners played a major role in the middle overs, with Sunil Narine delivering a superb performance. He finished with figures of 4/21 in four overs. With Kohli, AB De Villiers, and Maxwell all falling to Narine, RCB could only get 139/8 on the board.
KKR’s Shubman Gill scored a quick 29. However, his wicket allowed RCB to get back into the game. Sunil Narine, however, made the most of a promotion to No.5 and smashed three sixes off Dan Christian’s bowling in the 11th over. KKR then staved off an RCB come back to cross the finish line in the last over.
