New Delhi | Jagran Sports Desk: It was defiantly a phenomenal moment for all the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) fans as the team defeated Delhi Capitals (DC) in Qualifier 2 on Wednesday in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 season at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium to book a place into the final against Chennai Super Kings.

In order to gain victory over DC, KKR had to achieve 136 runs in 20 overs. Chasing 136 runs, KKR achieved the target on the second last ball of their innings with Rahul Tripathi slamming the winning boundary to take his team to the finals.  

Hailing the incredible win, Indian cricketer Abhinav Mukund took to his Twitter and appreciated Tripathi for his amazing performance and maintaining his calm.
