After a rather one sided match in the afternoon, we got to witness a high scoring thriller in Sharjah as the Delhi Capitals somehow managed to get over the line against the Kolkata Knight Riders by 18 runs courtesy some match defining death bowling by Nortje in the penultimate over.
Delhi Capitals will take on Kolkata Knight Riders in the second game of the double header on Saturday at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium. Delhi have won two of their three contests, but go into today’s match having been stunned by an efficient Sunrisers Hyderabad in their previous encounter. KKR, on the other hand, also have two wins and one defeat to their name. In their most recent outing though they defeated the dangerous Rajasthan Royals by 37 runs. With the teams strong in both batting and bowling, a close contest could be in the offing.
