Insipid encounter: SRH ways!

Go Go Go Go Go here we go, we are the orange army; this song made into the lists of Hyderabadi radio with the IPL fever, and tonight's performance from the orange army just corroborated the song's status. Winning the championship in 2016, orange army looks pretty formidable in clinching the title this season.

The weather in the Hyderabad from last 10 days was looming, the city would be soaked down with its heat during this time of the year was taken down by a hailstorm couple of days back making the city stand still for almost 3 hours; with rain in the forecast cricket officials of Hyderabad were pretty much stressed.

With the rain god staying away, we had a pretty much-onesided encounter as RR took on SRH in their backyard; winning the toss and choosing to bowl first, SRH hasn't taken a wrong step in the entire match; they kept the scoreboard in check every time.

Known for its bowling strength, they have once again lived up to the expectations of their fans by restricting RR for a mediocre 125 runs in 20 overs. Shakib and Kaul were the pick of the bowlers for SRH, picking up 2 wickets each and maintaining an economy under 6. Sanju Samson was the only Royal who managed to stick around by scoring 49 runs.

SRH's innings was completely dominated by Shikar Dhawan after an early reprieve as the safest pair of hands in India shells one down, scoring 77 runs in 50 odd balls, Shikar was adjudged the man of the match.

Starting their campaign with a win, SRH would like to continue their dominance in the tournament, while RR would try to catch the balls and opportunities that come in their way to get into the winning ways.

Substantial Delhi Daredevils

The team which has seen a lot of ups and downs in terms of their core stability is Delhi Daredevils. With the likes of Sehwag, Gambhir, Nehra, and Mishra, Delhi started off their campaign in 2008 as one of the favorites to win the championship. However, they just fell short of a couple of steps to clinch the title.

To further strengthen the things next year, Delhi signs in Dirk Nannes the quicky from Australia. Under the leadership of Gambhir DD topped the table and yet again dropped short of their maiden championship title.

From 2010 until 2017, Delhi has faced a lot of criticism for not performing up to their standards. Reaching playoffs only once in a span of 8 years is a record that needs to be flushed down the gutter. 2012, was one of their successful seasons among the last eight, thanks to the likes of Kevin Pietersen, Mahela Jayawardena, and Ross Taylor. 

With Delhi having a capricious core, it was all up to the management to establish a steady and a solid core; and they have …
