New Delhi: Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and Delhi Capitals (DC) will clash in the 41st match of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2021) on Tuesday. If Rishabh Pant-led Delhi will win the match at Sharjah then it will secure a place in the playoffs. Delhi Capitals are second in the points table with 8 wins in 10 matches. On the other hand, Kolkata Knight Riders retained the fourth spot due to a better net run-rate with 10 matches 4 wins.
Delhi have done well so far in the current season. Shreyas Iyer's return has strengthened Delhi's middle order, while pacers Anrich Nortje and Kagiso Rabada are doing wonders in bowling. The bad news for KKR is that left-arm spinner Kuldeep Yadav suffered a serious knee injury and is expected to miss most of the home season after returning from the Indian Premier League (IPL) in UAE.
Delhi, who are trying to win their first IPL title, have played brilliantly in this season. Delhi was defeated by Mumbai Indians in the final last season. Eoin Morgan and his team know very well that they cannot make any mistake against a team like Delhi. The match will be crucial for them to make it to the playoffs. He will have to do well in every field against a strong team like Rishabh Pant-led Delhi.
