Delhi Daredevils will face the Rising Pune Supergiant for the IPL10. RPSvDD match would give two major conclusions for the teams. The first thing is that the solidity of the Pune team and the second is the sustainability of the Delhi team.
Delhi has never won an IPL and has constantly performed badly in the last 9 IPLs. The start of the IPL 10 was not encouraging either. The Delhi Daredevils team lost a battle that they could have won any day against Royal Challengers Bangalore. Zaheer Khan is leading the team and he is leading from the front with his performance.
The team has, of course, lost some of the key players for this year of IPL. They have lost a batsman like Q De Kock and JP Duminy. However, that does not really stop them from performing. They still have some important players who can win them matches. Rishav Pant who won everyone’s heart in the lost battle against Bangalore is a player to watch for Delhi.
However, Delhi Daredevils need to come strong in terms of the nerves. There have been too many matches now in the entire IPL seasons that went against Delhi at the last minute. Delhi cannot lose matches now. This is a big platform and they must put all their efforts to come out of the jinx. They have played good cricket last year but lost the momentum to miss out.
However, this is the time when they can make things according to their need. They play Pune today.
Here is the scoreboard of the last match Delhi played against RCB.
