KKR vs DC IPL Score: Shikhar Dhawan started well against KKR bowlers.© BCCI/IPL
Shikhar Dhawan started strongly for Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) after captain Eoin Morgan won the toss and opted to field first against Delhi Capitals (DC) in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium in UAE. KKR made two changes, bringing in Tim Southee and Sandeep Warrier in place of Andre Russell and Prasidh Kirishna. DC replaced Prithvi Shaw with Steve Smith in the final XI. After enduring a disappointing end to a last-ball thriller against the Chennai Super Kings (CSK), KKR will look to start afresh against an in-form DC team. Despite fighting toe-to-toe against MS Dhoni’s team, KKR ended on the wrong side of the result which put them on the fourth spot in the IPL 2021 points table. DC, on the other hand, secured a comfortable win against Rajasthan Royals (RR) by 33 runs and will be looking to confirm a place in the playoffs. Morgan’s side will look towards a good all-round show from Sunil Narine yet again while Rishabh Pant will expect his side to carry on the winning momentum. Senior players like Shikhar Dhawan and Shreyas Iyer will again form the backbone of DC’s batting going into the match. (Live Scorecard)
