VIVO IPL 2021: Match 41 will be played on September 28th at Sharjah Cricket Association Stadium between Delhi Capitals and Kolkata Knight Riders.The match is scheduled to begin at 3:30 PM IST on Tuesday, when DC will take on KKR, who is currently in fourth place. It will be a match between two of the top four teams in the league. Both teams’ batting lineups are loaded with power, so we can expect a nail-biter of a game between the two.
With thrashing victories over RCB and MI in the first two matches of the second leg, KKR has ensured that they have gained momentum at the right time. KKR, on the other hand, will hope that their loss to CSK in the previous match was just a fluke as they push for a playoff spot. Their chances will improve if they win the match against DC.
KKR’s Probably Playing XI
Shubman Gill, Venkatesh Iyer, Rahul Tripathi, Eoin Morgan (c), Nitish Rana, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Andre Russell/Shakib Al Hasan, Sunil Narine, Lockie Furguson, Varun Chakravarthy, Prasidh Krishna
DC, on the other hand, appears to be unstoppable and is the best suited and most settled team in the tournament. The Delhi Capitals’ pace attack has been causing serious problems for opponents with their speed.KKR’s in-form openers got the team off to a great start against RCB and MI, but they struggled in the last match against CSK. If the openers are to pose a challenge to DC, they must not only neutralise the pace attack of Rabada, Avesh Khan, and Nortje, but also face the spin challenge of Ashwin and Axar Patel on the slow pitch. As a result, cricket fans will find it interesting to watch.
DC’s Probably Playing XI
Prithvi Shaw/Steve Smith/Sam Billings, Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant (c & wk), Shimron Hetmyer, Lalit Yadav, Axar Patel, Ravichandran Ashwin, Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje, Avesh Khan.
Head to Head
Both teams have played a total of 27 IPL matches, with the margin of victory being razor-thin. KKR has 14 victories, while DC has 13 victories. Both teams have played two games against each other in the UAE, with each winning one.In the previous six meetings between the two teams, DC had the upper hand, defeating KKR five times out of six.
The pitches in Sharjah are a little slower. The previous two games in this venue were low-scoring affairs. Given the likelihood of a hot afternoon, the team that wins the toss will prefer to bat first.
• Wicket keeper – Rishabh Pant (DC)
• Batsman – Shikhar Dhawan (DC), P Shaw (DC), Shubman Gill (KKR), Venkatesh Iyer (KKR)
• All-rounder – Andre Russell (KKR)
• Bowlers – Varun Chakravarthy (KKR), L Ferguson (KKR), Anrich Nortje (DC), Kagiso Rabada (DC)
Grand League Captain and Vice-Captain choice:
Venkatesh Iyer, V Chakravarthy, Shikhar Dhawan, Kagiso Rabada
If Steven Smith included in the match he can be a good punt in place of P Shaw.
Due to the current form of the Delhi Capitals, we will select DC as the superior team of the two. DC’s batting and bowling departments are doing well, but the KKR middle order is causing them some concern.As a result, we’ll bet on DC to win this game.
