IPL3. Day.20.Match 29. Delhi Daredevils Vs Rajasthan Royals


Delhi Daredevils 188 for 6 beat Rajasthan Royals 131 all out by 67 runs. in the return match also, to make it 2 on 2 against the Royals in IPL3.

Devils won the toss and elected to bat. They lost three wickets Warner, Sehwag and Collingwood with in the first 6 overs. Kedar Jhadav followed shortly after for 10 of 7. Gambhir at this stage was joined by his deputy Dinesh Kartik. They took the Rajasthan Royals apart through some sensible batting. Gambhir was taken by Yusuf of Nariwal for a polished 43 of 37. But the day belonged to Dinesh Kartik. He plundered runs at will and was out the last ball for an excellent 69 of 37. Nariwal with 3 and Tait & Trivedi with one each were among the wickets. Tait was taken to the cleaners, particularly by Kartik to finish with 4.0.53.1.

Rajasthan Royals just went through the motions and finsihed at 121 all out, loosing by 67 runs.
Marginal contributions came from N.Ojha 27 of 14, Voges 15 of 27, Yusuf 24 of 14 and P.Dogra 20 of 25. All the Delhi Daredevil bowlers had reasonable figures. Maharoof 3.0.13.2, Mc Donald 2.0.17.0 and Amit Mishra 4.0.25.3 were the pick of the bowlers. Ladda,Collingwood amd Sehwag had a wicket each. Over all a match devoid of any interest or purpose.

Royals, what went wrong with you today ? Why such pathetic display ?
