Delhi Capitals and Kolkata Knight Riders will compete against each other today in the 2nd Qualifier match of IPL 2021 and the winner of this match will play the final against Chennai Super Kings on Friday, 15 Oct 2021. Delhi has not won a single edition of IPL till date, Kolkata on the other hand has won IPL 2 times in 2012 and in 2014 respectively. Rishabh Pant seems to be a very immature captain for such a big stage and Eoin Morgan has the big match experience because he is a world cup winning captain. It will be interesting to see between Pant and Morgan who will have the last laugh by the end of this match.
Kolkata Knight Riders wins the toss and they have elected to field first. KKR have kept the same playing xi for this match. Delhi Capitals have made one change in their playing xi, Marcus Stoinis comes in and Tom Curran is out.
Todays second qualifier match of IPL 2021 between DC vs KKR will start at around 7:30 PM IST. This match will be played at Sharjah Cricket Stadium which is located in Sharjah, UAE.
Delhi Capitals (Playing XI): Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant(w/c), Marcus Stoinis, Shimron Hetmyer, Axar Patel, Ravichandran Ashwin, Kagiso Rabada, Avesh Khan, Anrich Nortje
Kolkata Knight Riders (Playing XI): Shubman Gill, Venkatesh Iyer, Rahul Tripathi, Nitish Rana, Eoin Morgan(c), Dinesh Karthik(w), Sunil Narine, Shakib Al Hasan, Lockie Ferguson, Shivam Mavi, Varun Chakaravarthy
According to our prediction Kolkata Knight Riders will win todays 2nd qualifier match of Indian Premier League 2021. Kolkata is way more balanced when it comes to the bowling department because they have some amazing quality spinners like Narine and Shakib also they have equally good fast bowlers like Ferguson and Mavi.
