Wednesday’s Qualifier 2 brings together Delhi Capitals and Kolkata Knight Riders at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium. Delhi Capitals won the group stage but have lost their last two games against Royal Challengers Bangalore and Chennai Super Kings. KKR finished 4th on net-run-rate but have won their last three games. Read on as we preview this match. The Qualifier 2 begins at 19:30 local time.
Delhi Capitals have very quickly gone from being the all-conquering table-toppers to losing two in a row and a game away from elimination. However, they have match-winners in all departments and beat KKR by 7 wickets in April.
KKR are the momentum team in the tournament and now only two wins away from winning the 2021 IPL. They beat Delhi Capitals in their last meeting in late September and will fancy their chances against anyone.
