Viru Smashed Royal Bowlers For Delhi Win

It was one such encounter which was completely one-sided and easily won. Man who made it possible for Delhi was Nawab of Najafgadh. Viru batted like Nawab and ensured easy victory for Delhi. Royals started well by smashing first over for 14 runs but they lost wickets regularly and they faced big setback when Yusuf Pathan got out for 0 after getting promotion in batting order. Royals never recovered from that shock and finished with paltry total of 142 thanks largely to Abhishek Jhunjhunwala who hit half century and took them to that total. It was smooth chase for Delhi as their openers gave them flying start and one-of their openers ensured their victory. Here on things will become tough for Royals as they rely heavily on one man Yusuf Pathan and which is not good for them. As I am quoting regularly they missing Ravindra Jadeja badly but they themselves have to blame for such situation because they did not renew contract with him and when he tried to get contract Royals banned him. Batting is the weak link for Royals and they have to work hard to win matches.

Coming to today's matches it will be KKR V/s CSK and RCB V/s KXIP. For CSK it will be important to win this encounter just to get the confidence after the loss from their first match against DC. Dhoni made a mistake in last match by going with bits and pieces players and have to correct that mistake by getting specialists in, to ensure victory for them. As far as KKR concerned their confidence is sky high after 2 consecutive victories and they will go all out to win this encounter as well. 

RCB  and  KXIP both lost their opening encounter and today one of them will start their winning campaign. As far as RCB is concerned they have great batting line-up and good bowlers in their ranks only thing required from them is application. If all of them apply  and play as a unit, I think RCB will become tough team to beat as they have all in-form battters and bowlers who performed well at domestic and international levels this season before coming to IPL.On the other side KXIP missing the services of Brett Lee and it seems Yuvraj is also struggling with his wrist injury and needs time to recover from that. So some worries for them but key will be their captain Sangakkara who is in great form currently and have to lift his team by performing from the front.

So to sum it up today we will see to mouth watering contest.
