KKR Vs DC Head To Head Stats

This will be the third time in IPL 2021 that KKR and DC will face each other, in the earlier matches, the score remains tied up with both teams besting the other on one occasion. However, in the latest face off between the two teams, which was played on the 28th of September as the 41st match of the season, Kolkata Knight Righters won the match by 3 wickets and 10 balls remaining.

Delhi Capitals, on the same pitch as they will face KKR today, delivered underperforming innings against KKR. With the bat, they only managed to score 127 after losing 9 wickets in 20 overs. Steve Smith, Rishabh Pant and Shikhar Dhawan were the top 3 performers with the bat scoring 29 (34), 29 (36) and 24 (20) runs respectively.

KKR’s bowlers showed their supremacy as Lockie Ferguson, Sunil Narine and Venkatesh Iyer eah took 2 wickets.  Ferguson gave only 10 runs in his 2 spells, Narine gave only 18 in his 4 overs while Iyer was a little expensive with 2 wickets as he gave 29 runs in 4 overs, however, still a great economy rate considering the T20 format.

When KKR came out to bat, they made their intent clear, they were here to win the match but but not taking unnecessary risks. Sunil Narine shone with the bat as well and was the third highest scorer for KKR in the match.

Nitish Rana scored unbeaten 36 in 27 deliveries, Shubman Gill scored 30 in 33 balls and Sunil Narine scored 21 from just 10 balls.

DC’s Avesh Khan tried to control the match, so did Axar Patel with their impressive bowling figures, but could not help their team lead to victory.

Avesh Khan and Axar Patel, both, bowled 3 overs and gave just 13 runs, however, Avesh took 3 wickets as well while Axar could not get any.

KKR won the match by 3 wickets and 10 balls remaining.
