The Kolkata Knight Riders stuttered their way to a three-wicket win over the Delhi Capitals at Sharjah to advance to the IPL 2021 final, where they will face MS Dhoni's Chennai Super Kings. Rahul Tripathi smashed a six to take KKR into the summit battle, and it was another last over sorrow for DC. The openers, Shubman Gill and Venkatesh Iyer, put on a 96-run stand for Eoin Morgan's team.

However, things changed dramatically when DC bowlers took four wickets in a row to force the contest into the final over.

Iyer scored his third half-century to put KKR in command, but after he was dismissed for 55, Delhi Capitals stormed back into the game.

Nitish Rana, who came in at number three, looked daring in the middle throughout his 12-ball stint. As he attempted to take on Avesh Khan, he smashed a six off Axar Patel and was subsequently dropped by Ravichandran Ashwin at the third man region.

Anrich Nortje struck the left-hander with a crisp bouncer, sending him back to the pavilion.

Gill (46) was four runs short of a well-deserved half-century when he edged one to Rishabh Pant behind the wickets.

For a duck, Dinesh Karthik, Eoin Morgan, Shakib Al Hasan, and Sunil Narine all died.

With KKR needing seven runs to win, Ashwin was assigned to deliver the final over.

In his first delivery, Ashwin gave Rahul Tripathi a single and then bowled a dot ball to Shakib.

On the third delivery, Ashwin trapped Shakib in front of the stumps and dismissed Sunil Narine for a golden duck on the very next ball.

The game was then closed off by Rahul Tripathi, who hit a six over long-off to send his team into the final.

On Friday, the IPL 2021 final will be held in Dubai.
