Match 41, KOL vs  DEL: Preview, Match Details, Pitch & Weather Report, Probable XIs, Fantasy Picks 



Kolkata will be taking the field against Delhi in match number 41 of the Indian T20 League 2021 on 28th of September at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium. Delhi have been in fine form this season and with 8 wins in 10 games are positioned second at the points table. Kolkata on the other hand have managed to fetch just 4 wins out of their 10 fixtures so far, and are situated at the fourth position. They last played Chennai at Abu Dhabi, where they faced an agonising defeat in a cliffhanger. Batting first the men in purple and gold piled up 171 runs on the board for the loss of six wickets. Rahul Tripathi (45) and Nitish Rana (37) were among the top scorers. Chennai chased down the target at the very last ball. Sunil Narine was successful in picking up three wickets while the rest of the Kolkata bowlers grabbed a wicket each. 

Delhi faced Rajasthan in their previous game where they won the game by a handsome margin of 33 runs. Batting first Rishab Pant’s men smashed 154 runs on the board with Shreyas Iyer leading the charge with a classy 43. In reply Rajasthan could only muster 121 runs. Anrich Nortje was the pick of the bowlers for the Capitals, bagging 2 prized wickets of Yashashvi Jaiswal and Rahul Tewatia.   

These two teams have clashed on 29 occasions so far in the tournament where both of them have won 14 games each. The last time these two sides fought, Delhi emerged victorious. A win will send Delhi to the top of the table while Kolkata will be desperate to get those two points to cement their position at fourth.
