Delhi Daredevils will be playing sixth match of 2015 Pepsi IPL on 12 April against Rajasthan Royals at Ferozeshah Kotla Stadium in Delhi. RR won their opening match tournament against 2014 Indian Premier League finalist Kings XI Punjab by 26 runs whereas DD lost against Chennai Super Kings by 1 run. So it is going to be vital game for Delhi at their home.
It was a fantastic first game of Delhi Daredevils against CSK as it went to the last ball but unfortunately Delhi couldn’t win it. Albie Morkel played excellent inning of 73 but failed to win the game. DD side will be highly depending on Yuvraj Singh and Captain JP Duminy. Both these guys failed in against Chennai and will be desperate to perform in tomorrow’s key clash against RR.
Delhi needs to make some adjustments in their strategy and should promote Yuvi and Duminy at the top of the order. Quinton de Kock, Zaheer Khan, Manoj Tiwary and Saurabh Tiwar should be included in Daredevils playing 11 for 6th match of IPL.
Rajasthan Royals batting has be careful for tomorrow’s clash as in last match top five batsmen returned to pavilion on 75 score and were struggling. Hence Ajinkya Rahane, Steve Smith, Sanju Sampson have to play well against Delhi’s bowling attack. Shane Watson missed last match against Punjab and we can expect that he’ll lead the side in tomorrow’s vital battle.
RR bowling was brilliant in the last match and James Faulkner’s all-rounding performance helped team to win. Once again he’ll be crucial player and in the bowling he has to bowl well along with Tim Southee and Dhawal Kulkarni.
