Kolkata Knight Riders have won the toss and have opted to field Against Delhi Capitals
KKR has made the right decision of fielding field at this pitch – because most of the matches have been won by the chasing side. Delhi’s dashing opening pair Shaw and Dhawan have started the proceedings for their side. They have got a decent start to the game but later on, Delhi batsmen were finding some time to middle the ball.
Sharjah is known for its slower wicket and this has proved a bit heavy for DC to post a challenging total on the board. KKR bowlers have done a great job and restricted DC to post 135-5 in 20 overs. Even Delhi knew that this score was not enough to win and they had to do something extraordinary in order to be on the winning side.
KKR has got a great start to the 2nd innings of the game and it was more than 90+ runs and not even a single wicket has fallen. DC bowlers were finding some tough time to pick those wickets – but in the later stages, their bowlers have shown true potential. Suddenly they started picking all the crucial wickets and the main batting guns of KKR have been sent to the dugout. It was all down to the last over of the game and Tripathi has ended the match in style and won the game by 3 wickets.
Now after this win in the Qualifier-2, KKR is all set to face the mighty Chennai Super Kings in the Vivo IPL 2021 Finals at Dubai International Stadium on 15th October.
