Team News

Delhi Capitals

  • So far in IPL 2021, Rishabh Pant’s Delhi has dominated the competition. Shikhar Dhawan and Prithvi Shaw got the squad off to a great start, with Rishabh Pant, Shreyas Iyer, and Hetmyer contributing in when needed. With Avesh Khan, Rabada, Nortje, Axar, and Ashwin, bowlers have made a big contribution to Delhi’s success.
  • Rishabh Pant must pass the litmus test to keep his hopes of winning his first title alive in a do-or-die encounter. Similarly, Kolkata boasts a strong batting lineup and a bowling attack that can shock any opponent.
  • Their bowlers were instrumental in leading the squad to a much-needed win over Bangalore in a critical match. A win here will put the Men in Purple and Gold on the verge of claiming their third championship.

Kolkata Knight Riders

  • The Eoin Morgan-led Kolkata Knight Riders are eyeing their third maiden championship after a victory against Royal Challengers Bangalore in the eliminator. After losing to CSK in Qualifier 1, the Delhi Capitals will try all out to avoid a repeat performance and stay one step ahead of the glory. Delhi couldn’t get the classic Dhoni, who took on Tom Curran to finish the formalities, despite defending 12 runs in the final over. On Monday, Kolkata Knight Riders put on a fantastic performance to beat Bangalore in a must-win game and keep their playoff chances alive.
  • The KKR bowlers were successful in limiting the batting-heavy RCB to a meager 138 runs. Sunil Narine took four key wickets, including Kohli, Maxwell, de Villiers, and Bharat, who were all in good form.
  • Daniel Christian was hammered for three sixes by Narine, which relieved Kolkata’s strain. In the last over, Shakib and Eion Morgan sealed an emphatic victory. Virat Kohli’s goal of winning his first IPL title was destroyed before he stepped down as captain.
