DC vs KKR Match Preview:
DC vs KKR: Delhi Capitals is all set to come into a face-off with Kolkata Knight Riders in Match 25 of the IPL 2021 at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. This is the second match of the weekday double-header, with Mumbai Indians squaring off with Rajasthan Royals in the afternoon match at Arun Jaitley stadium in Delhi.
Delhi Capitals will head into today’s clash by riding on the back of a loss against RCB. Late carnage by Shimron Hetmyer didn’t prove sufficient for DC to beat RCB as they felt short of the target by just one run. Delhi Capitals will hope to bounce back from a low margin loss & win today’s match against KKR. Delhi Capitals are currently placed third on the Points Table.
Will DC get their Winning Momentum back or it will be KKR who will seal a Victory?
Rishabh Pant’s decision to bowl Marcus Stoinis in the end overs proved disastrous for DC as he was smashed for 23 runs by AB De Villiers. Rishabh Pant had a tough outing as a captain against RCB as he failed to get his team over the line. However, it will be quite interesting to see how the Captain will bounce back against KKR in today’s clash.
Meanwhile, KKR will head into today’s clash on the back of a stupendous victory over PBKS in their last outing. KKR will look ahead to maintain its winning momentum against DC in today’s much-awaited clash. Restricted bowling effort along with perfect show with the bat helped KKR to thrash PBKS in their previous outing. An all-round bowling effort from KKR didn’t let PBKS batsmen settle on the crease. As a result, they ended up scoring a meager target of 124 runs. Eoin Morgan’s 47 runs knock along with Rahul Tripathi’s 41 runs helped KKR to chase the 125 runs target comfortably & end their four-game losing streak with a win.
With their first win in five matches, KKR rose up from the bottom of the table to the fifth spot. KKR will look forward to continuing its winning momentum against DC. Both DC & KKR have produced some spectacular contests in the past including a thrilling Super over Win. So another nail-biting contest can be expected in today’s clash.
