Kolkata Knight Riders & Delhi Capitals went on for a war yesterday to secure their spot in the finals. Kolkata came out victorious and is now in line to grab their 3rd IPL trophy.
What we witnessed was a thrilling match that showed an amazing comeback of DC with the ball. Chasing a total of 136 for the victory, Kolkata was in a great position until the scoreboard was 123/1. After the 16th over the momentum went upside down. From that dominant position, Kolkata fell to 130/7.
It all came to a position in which KKR needed 6 from 2 balls, Rahul Tripathi smashed Ashwin for a maximum.
Earlier DC put up 135/5 in the scorecard at Sharjah. The pitch was very hard as the batsman found it very difficult to score. Dhawan topped the scorecard with 36 off 39.
Venkatesh Iyer was named the man of the match for his incredible half-century amidst pressure.
KKR bowled well and luck was with them.
Anyhow now, it’s going to be Chennai Super Kings vs Kolkata Knight Riders in the final of the 2021 Indian Premier League.
