DC vs KKR: Delhi Capitals will play their second game at Narendra Modi Cricket Stadium against Kolkata Knight Riders on Thursday. Delhi Capitals is currently in 3rd place in IPL 2021 points table while KKR sits at 5th place after two wins.
DC lost their last game against RCB by one run at this ground but are still sitting strong at number three position on the table with 4 wins in 6 games. Shimron Hetmyer played an outstanding knock in the last game to take Delhi close to a 172-run target against DC.
His form would come as a major boost to DC as their middle order hasn’t been performing for quite some time. Steve Smith hasn’t made any useful contribution in the three games that he has. The absence of Shreyas Iyer is hurting Delhi Capitals badly. It remains to be seen if Delhi continues with Smith at three or replace him with someone else.
Kolkata Knight Riders:
On the other hand, Kolkata Knight Riders too played their last game at Narendra Modi Cricket Stadium. They registered a 5-wicket win against Punjab Kings and brought their campaign back on track. Skipper Eoin Morgan put aside his bad form and scored a match-winning 47 off 40 balls.
Having said that, the form of Shubman Gill and Andre Russell would be crucial for KKR’s chances. Both the players haven’t come to the party yet. Though, there is no doubt about their potential. Kolkata Knight Riders would want both the players to leave behind their poor form and hit the ground running on Thursday.
