Delhi Capitals stunned the Kolkata Knight Riders by zooming past them in match number 24 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 season on Thursday in Ahmedabad. Put into bat, the Knights failed to shine in their armour, struggling to find momentum. The Eoin Morgan-led side posted just 154/6 in 20 overs. Big-hitting West Indian Andre Russell made a decent 45* to play a role in seeing KKR get to 154.
When DC batted, Prithvi Shaw hammered the KKR bowlers to help his side romp past the Knights. He shared a valiant stand alongside Shikhar Dhawan, who played second fiddle.
Interestingly, KKR were going at 69/1 at one stage before DC reduced them to 82/5. KKR needed some runs to get going and Andre Russell, who failed to hit the boundaries at the start, got some momentum, in the end, to help them post 154. The score wasn't at par on this wicket and DC were always on the driver’s seat to win.
DC went on to smash 67 runs in the powerplay overs and then batted so well from thereon. Shaw smashed a 82-run knock and Dhawan hit 46.

India-Pakistan Combined T20I XI Of Current Players
The two Asian giants only play against each other in ICC events or multi-team events like the Asia Cup. Though both teams have played plenty of Tests and One-Day Internationals against each other, the same can’t be said about the shortest format of the game. Both teams have met 8 times in T20I cricket, with India winning 7 of them, including the most recent one in 2016. While India are currently second in the T20I rankings, Pakistan are fourth. Nevertheless, players from both India and Pakistan continue being part of fantasy teams of fans on both sides of the border. And, with the T20I World Cup scheduled to be held later this year in India, both teams could cross path more than once. Ahead of the marquee event, we’ve curated a list of the combined T20I of current players.
