IPL 2021 – Qualifier 2, DC ( Royal Challengers Bangalore ) vs KKR ( Kolkata Knight Riders ) cricket match was scheduled today in which KKR won 3 by wickets.
Kolkata Knight Riders won the toss and opted to bowl against Delhi Capitals.
Eoin Morgan: We are going to bowl first. It’s worked. We have kept the same side. Guys know their role. The mindset in the second leg has been spot-on.
Rishabh Pant: We would have bowled first. We needed an extra batsman, so Stoinis comes in. Tom Curran is out. We are in a great frame of mind, always exciting to play together, looking to have fun during the match also.
It is said that it’s not over till it is over. What a wonderful performance by both the teams.
