The 41st match of IPL 2021, Kolkata Knight Riders will take on Delhi Capitals in Sharjah on Tuesday, 28th September 2021. DC have defeated KKR the last time and these two teams met again in this season.
Kolkata Knight Riders are well prepared to lock the game with Delhi Capitals in at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium. The Knight Riders started the UAE leg with the two wins, but they are not among the winners against CSK as they lost to the Chennai Super Kings by two wickets on Sunday.
The Knight Riders’ season is looking a little surprising right now. They were downed by Delhi Capitals in their previous match, but they made a strong recovery, winning two consecutive matches against RCB and MI before losing against CSK. They are presently ranked fourth in the IPL ranks, with a total of eight points. They have to win three matches to qualify for the finals.
.So far this season, the Delhi Capitals look excellent at some point. They have everything, from top-scoring batsmen to high-level bowling. This is continuously a pattern for them throughout the last two seasons.
Date and Time: 28th Sept 2021 & 03:30 PM
Venue:Sharjah Cricket Stadium, Sharjah
Kolkata Knight Riders - Eoin Morgan(c), Shubman Gill, Venkatesh Iyer, Rahul Tripathi, Nitish Rana, Dinesh Karthik(w), Andre Russell, Sunil Narine, Lockie Ferguson, Varun Chakravarthy, Prasidh Krishna.
Delhi Capitals: Rishabh Pant (C and WK), Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer, Shimron Hetmyer, Laliy Yadav Ravichandran Ashwin, Axar Patel, Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje, Avesh Khan.
Sharjah’s weather will be more humid because it is close to the desert. With 53 percent moisture, temperatures probably go to 38 degrees and wind speed will be 22km/h with no precipitation. However, it will be a day match, both teams will enjoy the match but with some pressure in this weather.
Sharjah’s pitch always proved paradise for spinners and tough for batting. If they have scored high runs in powerplay then it will play a lot of importance in overall games. Stadium ground and dimensions are small and it can neutralize the pitch activity, and here whoever wins the toss they will try to bowl first.
