DC vs KKR, Sharjah Cricket Stadium Pitch Report:
As said earlier, Sharjah has been a paradise for the bowlers, especially the spinners and medium pacers. The surface has nothing to offer for the batters after the first six overs. In the last match, as well, we saw a low scoring match despite a good score in the powerplay.
The middle overs will be crucial for both teams as the tilt of the match can be decided in those overs. The team to get a better hold of the surface in over 6-16 have been in a superior position to win the match, however, we will have to wait and watch the match to get the final result and our second finalist.
