IPL 2021: The coveted edition of the IPL is just one match away from the conclusion. The league phase was over a week ago while even the playoffs match are over.
However, the final will be played by Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR). It has been a phenomenal tournament with so many ups and downs witnessed in no matter of time.
But this fixture would not be very easy or a cakewalk for Chennai Super Kings. Kolkata Knight Riders are coming with stronger momentum after defeating Delhi Capitals on Wednesday.
They even made a huge turnaround against Royal Challengers Bangalore and that only added immense confidence to their players. And that was seen in the game against Delhi Capitals.
However, Kolkata Knight Riders had won the toss and they decided to bowl first. The pitch was very slow and the decision was almost right in the purview of the due factor and chasing in a big game like this.
And Delhi Capitals batting looked nowhere convincing as they played very slow throughout the first innings. Moreover, each and every DC batsman could be seen making run a ball runs. Plus the last match heroes Prithvi Shaw and Rishabh Pant failed to impress even a bit by their batting performance.
As a result of that Delhi, Capitals could only rake up a total of 138 runs in the twenty overs in the first innings. However, even Kolkata Knight Riders were not looking very comfortable on that pitch. Though they had a brilliant first wicket partnership thanks to the top order.
But the middle order nearly lost them the match. However, Rahul Tripathi stepped up and held his nerves to deliver an amazing victory to the Korbo lorbo army.
