DC Playing 11: In the Qualifier 2 of the Indian Premier League 2021, the Delhi Capitals will be up against the Kolkata Knight Riders team. The DC team were the best side in the league stage, and would look to play like one.
The Delhi Capitals have been one of the best teams in the tournament, and will be looking to seal the match on the back of experienced players. In the Qualifier 1, they batted well to post a strong total of 174 runs on the board. But the bowlers could not keep it tight and the opposition chased down the score in the last over, and have a scope of improvement.
The Delhi Capitals have not been at their best in the last 3 league matches, and will certainly be under pressure. They have not been able to play well as a team, which is the cause of their loss in the last game. The team’s batting performance was impressive in the last game, but it was an average effort from the bowlers, who failed to defend the total and would look to improve their performances.
