Hello and welcome to the Live blog for the 41st match of IPL 2021 – between Kolkata Knight Riders and Delhi Capitals – at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium. Hit refresh for latest updates.
KKR are currently in the fourth position with four wins from 10 games. They have the same number of points (8) as three other teams who have also played the same number of games. In what is a rat's race to make it to the playoffs, KKR will be eager to edge ahead with a win in this game.
It is easier said than done though as KKR have to deal with DC, who have been having their own battle with CSK for the top spot. CSK are currently No. 1 and DC will be keen to reclaim that position by registering what will be their fifth win on the trot.
KKR's openers gave the side good start against RCB and MI but couldn't quite get going against CSK. If they are able to present a challenge to DC, the openers will not only have to neutralise the Nortje threat but also put the pacer under pressure – Akash Sarkar previews the KKR-DC clash.
