The 49th Match of the Vivo IPL will be played between the Struggling Rising Pune Supergiants and the Delhi Daredevils. The match will be played at Dr. Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy ACA-VDCA Cricket Stadium, Visakhapatnam. Match will be played at 7:30 PM Pakistan Standard time. Last time when these 2 sides across each other the Rising Pune Supergiants beat Delhi side quite convincingly and won 2 points.
Starting from the RPS side who is at the bottom of the points table and is out of the race of final 4. The way RPS side played this tournament was quite heartbreaking as they won just 3 matches and lost 9 matches so far. They didn’t perform up to the expectations and they remained quite unlucky in such a
sense that almost 5-6 players got injured and ruled out of the tournament. That not only caused them defeat but also they couldn’t make the right changes due to continuous injuries in the team. This is also in the first time of history that the team couldn’t make it into the next round who was led by MS Dhoni.
Now RPS have just 2 matches left and they will try their level best to win these matches in order to end this tournament in a much better way. MS Dhoni wasn’t on his best this year. He didn’t play a single match winning knock for his team and he also didn’t used his best bowler this time. Ravichandran Ashwin who remained totally flop this year wasn’t benched and players like Irfan Pathan were not given any proper chance in the tournament. MS Dhoni also need to learn from his mistake and now he has to give chance to all his benched players to show their game as they are out of the tournament now. Also
they have won against Delhi in the first match so they have to take this as positive and try to give their best in the ground.
Coming towards the Delhi Daredevils side who have played a decent tournament so far but the defeat from Mumbai has on the panic button and now they have to win at least 2 out of 3 games with a good margin if they want to go through next round. Delhi Daredevils have won 6 out of 11 games and lost 5
and right now they are at no 6 in the points table. Issue so far that Delhi has faced is their unpredictability. You don’t know how they are going to perform in the next match and their batsmen
and bowlers need to be much more responsible. They bowlers looked quite rusty against Mumbai Indians and their batsmen couldn’t take responsibility and lost wickets by playing rash shots. Good thing is that Zaheer Khan their captain is back and is looking in a good touch. Quinton De Kock is also scoring
runs in almost all the matches and have played with responsibility. This match for Delhi will be very crucial as it is against a relatively weak team and if Delhi play their best game they have a very good chance of winning against them.
