DC vs KOL Qualifier-2 Team Prediction: Delhi Capitals vs Kolkata Knight Riders – 13 October 2021 (Sharjah). Sunil Narine, Shikhar Dhawan, and Prithvi Shaw will be the best fantasy picks for this game.

Delhi Capitals will take on Kolkata Knight Riders in the Qualifier-2 match of IPL 2021, aka Indian Premier League, which will be played at the Sharjah International Stadium in Sharjah.
