Cricket News sort by Delhi XI

The Sunrisers Hyderabad managed to defend a par total of 162 with some intelligent and disciplined bowling as they won their first match of the season by beating the Delhi Capitals by 15 runs.

A struggling Sunrisers Hyderabad will face a confident Delhi Capitals at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi on Tuesday. SRH have been below par in both the games they have played so far while Delhi Capitals have been excellent, winning both the games they have featured in.

The Delhi Capitals eased to a 44 run win over the Chennai Super Kings in the 7th match of the IPL 2020 as they moved to the top of the points table. CSK’s intent was in question again as they left too much for the end and weren’t able to achieve it, for a second time in a row.

Have been battered rather convincingly by Rajasthan Royals, Chennai Super Kings will be keen to get things right when they take on a confident Delhi Capitals in match number seven of IPL 2020 at the Dubai International cricket stadium on Friday. In a sense, it can be said that Delhi got out on jail against Kings XI Punjab, after the latter needed just one from three balls in their chase. Then again, Delhi deserve credit for holding their nerve under pressure.

Delhi Capitals beat Kings XI Punjab in the first Super Over in the second match of IPL 2020 on Sunday. The game saw numerous heroes. Delhi’s Marcus Stoinis slammed 53 from 21, and also picked up two wickets in the last over that took the match into the Super Over. Kagiso Rabada then bowled the decisive Super Over, dismissing KL Rahul and Nicholas Pooran.

We had a nail biter in Dubai as Delhi Capitals managed to somehow get over the line in their first match against the Kings XI Punjab. Stoinis starred with both bat and ball in the last overs of both of the innings and a magnificent 89 by Mayank Agarwal went in vain as Delhi registered their first points of the season.

Kings XI Punjab and Delhi Capitals will face off in the second match of IPL 2020 in Dubai on Sunday. Over the years, both Kings XI Punjab and Delhi Capitals have been heavy under-achievers in the tournament, so they would be keen to set the record right. A winning start will be the first step towards the same.

The Delhi Capitals have been the perennial underdogs as far as the last few years of IPL are concerned. They are the only team amongst the current lot to not have reached the finals even once. But things sort of changed last season, as they went on to qualify for the playoffs after a gap of 6 long years. The last time they had qualified for the playoffs (except for the previous season) was way back in 2012, the time when Sehwag was still their skipper, and they boasted of T20 giants like David Warner, Kevin Pietersen, Ross Taylor, Andre Russell, Glen Maxwell, Mahela Jayawardene, and Morne Morkel. Sounds like quite a squad ! And this is where it all went downhill for them, they didn’t stick to their core team. Obviously players like Warner, Maxwell and Russell weren’t as intimidating back then as they are now, but still if they had stuck with them, they would have been a lot more successful in the years to come. Not to forget they had let go of AB de Villiers in 2011 !
