The second qualifier match is currently being played between Kolkata Knight Riders and Delhi Capitals at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium. In this match, Kolkata won the toss and got the Delhi team to bat first. The Kolkata bowlers, proving the decision of captain Eoin Morgan, did not give the Delhi batsmen a chance to play more freely and bowled tightly. Delhi’s team could only manage 135 runs in the stipulated overs on the basis of opener Shikhar Dhawan’s 36 and former captain Shreyas Iyer’s 30 not out. The KKR team must have been very happy after seeing the target of 136 runs from Delhi, because in the history of IPL, whenever Delhi has to defend a target of less than 150 runs, the team has lost every time.
