Kolkata Knight Riders would attempt to return back to winning ways when they face a high-flying Delhi Capitals side at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium on Tuesday, September 28. The match has a scheduled start time of 3:30 pm IST (Indian Standard Time). The Knight Riders have been playing free, fearless and aggressive cricket ever since the second phase of IPL 2021 resumed in the UAE and they achieved instant success with wins over Royal Challengers Bangalore and defending champions Mumbai Indians. Although their winning run was halted by Chennai Super Kings on Sunday, the Knights would be proud of the way they took the game to the very last ball and almost eked out a win.
