After the middle-order wobble, the KKR managed to defeat Delhi Capitals by 3-wickets in Sharjah on Wednesday.

Chasing 136 against Capitals, the KKR lost 6 wickets in 3.5 overs scoring only 7 runs before Rahul Tripathi’s stunning 6 in the second last delivery of the final over that made the decision in the KKR’s favour.

Confirming the availability of all-rounder Shakib in the IPL 2021 final, Hussey said Shakib is a fine player and has probably contributed to the team in the last two wins. He is available and everybody’s going to be available for selection, so it’s going be a tough call by the head coach Brandon McCullum, the KKR chief mentor.
