Kolkata Knight Riders beat Delhi Capitals by three wickets in IPL 2021 Qualifier 2 on Wednesday to advance to the final, where they will face Chennai Super Kings on October 15. KKR were sailing at one point when openers Venkatesh Iyer (55) and Shubman Gill (46) were at the crease, pursuing a below-par 136 for victory. But afterward came the stunning collapse, in which KKR lost six wickets for seven runs in three overs, falling from 123 for one to 130 for seven, sending shockwaves through their dugout and throughout the arena.

In pursuit of the 136-run target, KKR openers Shubman Gill and Venkatesh Iyer put on a 96-run opening partnership. While Gill scored 46 runs in the final game to put KKR in a commanding spot in the pursuit, Iyer scored his third fifty of the season.

Ravichandran Ashwin bowled the first four balls excellently and took two wickets for KKR in the penultimate over, but Rahul Tripathi blew everyone away with his winning six on the fifth ball against the off-spinner. Varun Chakaravarthy had earlier done brilliantly with the ball, taking two wickets and keeping the DC batsmen subdued.

Morgan, who won the World Cup with his side, stated he and the team management will analyse the squad's batsmanship in the final four overs in Qualifier 2. After being in the heart of the action for the majority of the game, KKR came close to gift-wrapping the game to Delhi. This Friday, they will compete for their third IPL title against Chennai Super Kings in the finals.
