Iyer brought up his third half-century to put KKR in a commanding position but once he perished for 55, Delhi Capitals came roaring back into the contest.
Nitish Rana, came in at number three, looked adventurous during his 12-ball stay in the middle. He hit a six off Axar Patel and was then dropped by Ravichandran Ashwin at the third man region as he tried to take on Avesh Khan.
Anrich Nortje bowled a sharp bouncer to eventually send the left-hander back to the pavilion.
Gill (46) fell four runs short of a well-deserved half-century as he edged one behind the stumps to Rishabh Pant.
Dinesh Karthik, Eoin Morgan, Shakib Al Hasan and Sunil Narine all perished for a duck.
Ashwin was asked to bowl the final over with KKR needing seven runs for the win.
Ashwin conceded a single of the first delivery to Rahul Tripathi and then bowled a dot ball to Shakib.
On the third delivery, Ashwin trapped Shakib right in front of the stumps and on the very next ball, dismissed Sunil Narine for a golden duck.
Rahul Tripathi then finished the game off with a six over long-off to send his side into the final.
The IPL 2021 final will be played in Dubai on Friday.
