IPL 2021 Qualifier 2 – DC vs KKR
Delhi Capitals will take on Kolkata Knight Riders today in Qualifier 2 of IPL 2021 to grab the ticket to the finale. The winner of this contest will lock horns with Chennai Super Kings in the final match on Friday. Watch DC vs KKR live on YuppTV and experience all the cricket excitement.
Eion Morgan-led KKR enters today’s match with immense inspiration and confidence from their victory against Royal Challengers Bangalore in the eliminator on Monday. KKR bowlers restricted batting-heavy Bangalore to a below-par score of 138 and chased the target in the final over to stay in the hunt. Kolkata had a disappointing IPL during the first half but bounced back in the UAE to enter the playoffs. With their top order in brisk form and bowlers rising to the occasion, KKR never allowed their opponents any breathing space. Andre Russell’s availability is uncertain and worries KKR but Shakib uses his experience to chip in whenever needed. Shubman Gill and Venkatesh Iyer stability at the top amplified with Sunil Narine, Ferguson and Varun Chakravarthy rattling opponents is a relief for men in purple and gold.
Delhi Capitals displayed total domination throughout the tournament but lost to Chennai Super Kings in qualifier 1. Delhi reached the playoffs three times in a row managing to reach finals last year. Luck didn’t favour Delhi during IPL 2020 when Mumbai Indians shattered their dreams to lift their maiden title. Rishab Pant will go all the way to change their fortunes in today’s game. Shikhar Dhawan, Prithvi Shaw, Rishab Pant, Shreyas and Hetmeyer are in brilliant form. Avesh Khan, Axar and Ashwin have been successful in taking wickets in regular intervals.
Spinners will have plenty of assistance in a slow and sluggish Sharjah pitch. Dew will have an important part to play in the latter part of the game.
