Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) defeated Delhi Capitals (DC) by 3 wickets in Qualifier-2 of the Indian Premier League (IPL)-14 to reach the final. In this exciting match played in Sharjah, KKR had to score 6 runs in the last 2 balls to win. Rahul Tripathi gave the team victory by hitting a six off the ball of legendary spinner R Ashwin.

As soon as KKR won this match, Delhi Capitals opener Prithvi Shaw got emotional and lay down on the ground. Tears were coming out of his eyes. Prithvi was later seen crying in the dressing room as well. Prithvi Shaw was broken by the defeat of Delhi. In the last season of IPL also, Delhi had missed out on winning the trophy. She lost to Mumbai Indians in the final.

Delhi’s team was on top of the points table in this time’s IPL. He did exceptionally well in league matches. She was a strong contender to become the champion. Like last time, this time too she was close to winning the trophy.

What mistake did Delhi make in the second qualifier?

Delhi batsmen got off to a great start against KKR in the second qualifier. But the middle order batsmen disappointed a lot. Barring Dhawan and Iyer, none of the batsmen could score more than 20 runs. The Delhi Capitals bowlers were initially unable to take wickets.

The bowlers came back in the last over but by then it was too late. The surprising thing is that Delhi bowlers have taken 2 wickets more than 10 times during the powerplay of all IPL matches. The journey of Delhi under the captaincy of Rishabh was spectacular. The team is out of the league yesterday. Rishabh Pant could not handle the pressure of the big match. There was a lack of experience in the big matches. This was the reason why the team could not reach the final.
