Double header matches will be played on Tuesday in the Indian Premier League (IPL 2021). Delhi Capitals and Kolkata Knight Riders will clash in the first match of the day in Sharjah. Delhi Capitals are currently on the second position in the points table with 16 points. In today’s match, they beat KKR to confirm their place in the playoffs. KKR were defeated by Chennai Super Kings in their previous match. KKR will try to beat DC and regain the momentum. KKR are currently at number four in the points table. Talk about the playing XI of both the teams, the teams hardly make much changes in their playing XI.
Talking about Delhi Capitals, they can join the same playing XI which defeated Rajasthan Royals in the last match. For Delhi, Marcus Stoinis can get a place in the playing XI, if he is fit. In the last match, Lalit Yadav was fed in his place. Steve Smith is less likely to find a place in the playing XI in this match as well. DC may give Lalil Yadav another chance to prove himself by being included in the playing XI in today’s match. Apart from this, the chances of any change in the team are slim.
On the other hand, if we talk about KKR, then in their previous match, they were defeated by CSK in a thrilling match. Despite this, KKR hardly make any changes in the team in today’s match. Andre Russell suffered an injury while fielding against CSK. If he is fit, there is every possibility of playing in the playing XI. If they are not fit, then Shakib Ali Hasan and Ben Cutting are likely to find a place in the playing XI. Today a thorny competition can be seen between the two.
