Delhi Capitals is a team with a lot of talented youngsters playing for them. They have been brilliant in the last two years reaching the Playoffs in consecutive seasons. They were runners-up last year and would like to go one better in IPL 2021. Kolkata Knight Riders, who were the title winners in 2012 and 2014, have displayed below-par performance in the last two seasons.

KKR is ahead of DC in the IPL record of previous clashes. In the tournament history so far, both sides have clashed in a total of 26 games, of which 11 have been won by the Delhi Capitals and 14 by the Kolkata Knight Riders.
