IPL 2020, DC vs KKR Today's Match at Sharjah Highlights: As it Happened

IPL 2020 Delhi Capitals vs Kolkata Knight Riders Live Score & Latest Updates -DC WIN: Last over of the match and Tripathi hits the first ball for a four. But the very next ball, he is yorked by Stoinis. A little gem of an innings comes to an end by Tripathi, who scored 36 from 16. DC win another game here. They win by 18 runs. the match. KKR need a miracle to win here.

Match 16 of IPL 2020 will see the two powerhouse teams Delhi Capitals and Kolkata Knight Riders come up against each other in Sharjah. One expects plenty of big hits on the day in what is the smallest stadium in the tournament.

Here’s a look at the players to watch out for.

Shubman Gill

One of the most promising batsmen in Indian cricket currently, Gill has been impeccable at the top of the order for KKR, helping set it up for the big hitters later in the innings. His fluent batting is likely to find more runs on Saturday against Delhi. The youngster from Punjab will face some top notch bowling in Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje but has the wherewithal to weather the storm and push on for a big score.

Eoin Morgan

The England captain has not been as explosive as he would have liked yet in the tournament but Sharjah allows the big hitting southpaw a chance to change that. Morgan has done well to finish the innings for KKR in their two wins against SRH and RR and will hope to make good use of the batting paradise. While his batting abilities are well documented, his constant talking to young players in the game during pressure situations has helped the likes of Shivam Mavi, Kamlesh Nagarkoti and Shubman Gill.

Pat Cummins

When KKR broke the bank for the Australian pacer it raised a few eyebrows. But Cummins, apart from the first game, has responded brilliantly for KKR. His unsettling of Steve Smith with raw pace went a long way in helping KKR register their second win in the tournament. It is likely that the Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan and Shreyas Iyer find it difficult to get him away. On a small ground however his pace will help the batsmen which means he must use all his international experience to keep them quiet.

Marcus Stoinis

The Australian all rounder was a key addition to the Delhi Capitals side and plays a big role in the final stages of the innings with the bat and ball. In Stoinis, DC have a player who can clear the ropes with ease and Sharjah should make for a good evening for him. As a bowler, his variations and probing lengths are likely to cause KKR’s big hitters some trouble.

Kagiso Rabada

The South African pacer’s abilities are very well known and if DC are to come away with a result, Rabada has to be spot on. His pace and accuracy are every batsman’s nightmare and possibly one sure shot way of keeping the KKR batters quiet.
