KKR vs DC, Match 41, Match Preview: Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) will take on Delhi Capitals (DC) in the 41st match of IPL 2021 on Tuesday. Currently, sitting at the top of the table, Delhi Capitals are yet to lose a game in the second leg of IPL 2021. They are coming into this game on the back of four successive wins. Delhi Capitals won their last game against Rajasthan Royals by 33 runs. Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant and Shimron Hetmyer scored vital runs during the first innings. The middle-order is amongst the runs and that should keep the team in good stead. Prithvi Shaw has now two low scores in two matches in UAE. He would be keen to play a solid knock on Tuesday. Though, there shouldn’t be any complaints as far as bowling is concerned.
The pacers, comprising of Rabada, Nortje and Avesh Khan are doing a great job and so are their spinners. All the five bowlers are amongst the wickets and that makes Delhi Capitals a formidable unit. They go into the contest as favourites. Facing them are Kolkata Knight Riders, who lost their last game against CSK by 2 wickets. CSK have fared pretty well in the second leg of the competition. They had begun their UAE campaign with two consecutive wins before losing to CSK.
Openers, Shubman Gill and Venkatesh Iyer didn’t score too many runs in the last game, however, Rahul Tripathi continued his good run. Vital contributions from Nitish Rana, Russell, and Dinesh Karthik propelled KKR to 171 runs at the end of the first innings.
KKR could have won the game had Jadeja not tore-apart Prasidh Krishna in the 19th over. His 8-ball 22-run cameo took the game away from Morgan and Co. Otherwise, it was a pretty good bowling performance from them. Sunil Narine was the pick of the bowlers, picking 3 for 41 in 4 overs. There were a lot of positives for KKR despite losing the game and they would be confident of making a comeback on Tuesday. Although they suffered a setback as their MVP Andre Russell got injured during the encounter with CSK.
