Earlier, (KKR) skipper Eoin Morgan won the toss and asked (DC) to bat first in Match 41 of 14th edition of (IPL 2021).

KKR has made a couple of changes with injured all-rounder Andre Russell and out-of-form pacer Prasidh Krishna making way for Kiwi quick Tim Southee and fast bowler Sandeep Warrier.

For the Capitals, the injured Prithvi Shaw made way for Australian Steve Smith in the playing XI.

As the race for playoffs has intensified, KKR needs to win all its remaining 4 matches to secure its place in the playoffs or else it has to depend on the results of other teams. Meanwhile, Delhi has almost qualified for the playoffs and look to finish in top two on points table.
