Delhi Capitals: Analysis
Gameplan: Delhi are pretty much in a do or die situation at the moment. The Rishabh Pant led side has 10 points from 11 matches and a defeat to Rajasthan in the upcoming game will be a big blow to the side’s hopes to make it to the playoffs. The team succumbed to a bitter loss to CSK in the previous match after the bowlers conceded too many runs at first which was, later on, made look even more difficult by the batters as they were bundled out for a mere 117 runs.
None of the batters managed to convert their start to a big score. The bowlers too went for runs in all parts of the ground, as the team was outplayed in all departments of the game. The management will be hoping for a combined brilliance in tomorrow’s massively important match against Rajasthan from all the players. Only then shall their hopes to reach the Playoffs stay alive.
