© Provided by Firstpost IPL 2021, KKR vs DC LIVE Score Updates: Kolkata opt to bowl; Smith replaces Shaw for Delhi

15:18 (IST)

In the Star Sports studio, Sunil Gavaskar has predicted a DC win today’s match. Hayden has gone with KKR. 

15:06 (IST)

Delhi Capitals XI: Shikhar Dhawan, Steven Smith, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant(w/c), Shimron Hetmyer, Lalit Yadav, Axar Patel, Ravichandran Ashwin, Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje, Avesh Khan

15:06 (IST)

Kolkata Knight Riders XI: Shubman Gill, Venkatesh Iyer, Rahul Tripathi, Eoin Morgan(c), Nitish Rana, Dinesh Karthik(w), Sunil Narine, Lockie Ferguson, Tim Southee, Varun Chakaravarthy, Sandeep Warrier

15:06 (IST)

One change for DC: Steve Smith replaces Prithvi Shaw.

15:05 (IST)

Rishabh Pant: “We wanted to bat first. The wicket looks slow, so 15-160 should be par score. Hope we can win the game and qualify for the playoffs for sure.”

15:04 (IST)

Two changes for KKR: Tim Southee and Sandeep Warrier come in for Andre Russell and Prasidh Krishna. 

15:03 (IST)

Eoin Morgan: “Don’t know what the wicket will be like, but it’s not a belter and not too bad, so somewhere in between. Setting a total might be a challenge, so we will try bowling.”

15:01 (IST)

Toss: KKR decide to bowl first after winning toss. Morgan says he is not sure “what’s the wicket like”.

14:57 (IST)

Pitch Report: “Pitch is slow at Sharjah. In the middle stages it will be hard to bat, so expect fireworks in powerplay. There’s not a lot of grass to hold the pitch together, there are bare patches. Fast bowlers will try cross-seamers, a few will skid off the leather and others will take off after hitting the seam, making it difficult for power-hitters outside powerplay,” says Matthew Hayden.

14:50 (IST)

New for KKR fans: Tim Southee could be making his debut for the franchise today. He most probably will replace Andre Russell in the side. Confirmation will be in at toss. 

14:45 (IST)

KKR spinner Kuldeep Yadav injures knee

Kuldeep is back home in India after sustaining a serious knee injury and it could also make hit sit out of the majority of the domestic season. A few reports suggest that he has already done surgery for the injury. The spinner has not been picked in India’s squad for T20 World Cup.

14:34 (IST)

Likely changes…

KKR are certain to be without Andre Russell who injured himself fielding in the deep against CSK. 

For DC, Marcus Stoinis injured his leg against SRH and could miss the match. Prithvi Shaw also injured himself in the last match and can be out of today’s game. 

14:26 (IST)

Here’s a look at the points table. A win today for KKR will be a huge boost for their playoff chances.

14:20 (IST)

Shreyas Iyer’s return has allowed us to play ideal line-up, says DC bowling coach James Hopes

“At the start of the tournament, with Shreyas being out we decided to play Steve and I think all along our ideal line-up had Nortje and Rabada in it, but we just couldn’t afford to do that at the start of tournament.”

14:10 (IST)

Head to head record

Kolkata Knight Riders and Delhi Capitals have met 27 times and Eoin Morgan’s side has a slight edge over their opponents as they won 14 matches compared to Delhi’s 13.

13:57 (IST)

Two matches today in IPL 2021! Two in-form teams collide in the afternoon game. DC are second in the league table with 16 points and have won their last two matches in UAE. KKR have won two out of three matches in UAE and are fourth. A win tonight will help Delhi Capitals take one more step towards finishing at top of the points table. Kolkata Knight Riders need two points to consolidate the playoffs spot. This should be a cracker of a contest. Stay tuned for toss and team news…

Live Score KKR vs DC, IPL 2021, Today’s Match: Hello and welcome to the live coverage of the match between Kolkata Knight Riders and Delhi Capitals


Preview: Delhi Capitals (DC) will take on Kolkata Knight Riders (KR) Match 41 of IPL 2021 at Sharjah. Expect fireworks as both teams have power-hitters and the Sharjah ground has shorter boundaries as compared to other venues in United Arab Emirates (UAE).

DC are comfortably placed on second. Although they and Chennai Super Kings (CSK) have the same points but thanks to the Net Run Rate (NRR), CSK sit atop in the points table.

KKR, on the other hand, have been quite impressive in the second leg of the season, winning two out of the last three matches. They had to face loss in hands of CSK in their last match but there were plenty of positives to take from the loss as well.

Varun Chakravarthy remains key for KKR. But it was also good to see Sunil Narine stepping up in the last match and almost stealing a match for his team from the jaws of defeat.

Venkatesh Iyer, Rahul Tripathi have batted well in this season but captain Morgan would surely want some runs under his belt as well.
