DC vs KKR

Kolkata is the 3rd most successful team in the history of IPL with 2 titles in the bag. Delhi Capitals, on the other hand, are regarded as the perennial underachievers in the competition. While many would assume that KKR would have been dominating this fixture, it is one of the closest rivalries in the tournament. The rivalry of DC and KKR caught fire after former Delhi skipper Gautam Gambhir became the captain of KKR. Since then, both sides have given us some memorable battles on the cricket field.

Last meetings IPL 2019

In DC vs KKR 2019, Delhi Capitals won the toss and elected to bowl first in this game. On the back of a fifty from the skipper Dinesh Karthik (50 runs off 36 deliveries) and Andre Russell blitz (62 runs of 28 deliveries) KKR posted a total of 185/8 in 20 overs. DC openers came out with a positive mindset, and the youngster Prithvi Shaw went on to score 99 runs off 55 deliveries. He got a good partner in Shreyas Iyer who scored 43 runs off 32 deliveries. However, despite the best of the efforts of both batsmen, KKR pulled back things, and the match got tied. Batting first in the Super Over Delhi managed only 10 runs, and KKR had an easy target. But pacer Kagiso Rabada bowled a brilliant over to stop KKR to only 7 runs to register a 3 runs victory in enthralling super over.

In KKR vs DC 2019, the game was played at KKR home – the iconic Eden Gardens. Delhi Capitals again won the toss, and once again they opted to bowl first. KKR vs DC live score read 178/7 in their 20 overs courtesy some excellent batting by Shubman Gill (65 runs off 39 deliveries) and Andre Russell (45 runs off 21 deliveries). Chris Morris, Kagiso Rabada, and Keemo Paul all returned with 2 wickets each in their bag. This time in DC vs KKR live score, the other opener of Delhi Shikhar Dhawan, was in the mood and he took the KKR bowlers’ case. The southpaw scored unbeaten 97 runs off 63 deliveries and alongside Rishabh Pant (46 off 31 deliveries) made sure there is no twist to the tale this time around. DC registered a dominating 7 wickets win over KKR to complete the season double over them.
