Delhi Capitals (DC) romped against Sun Risers Hyderabad (SRH) in the second qualifier of the tournament. In a knockout game, it was expected to see some close match from the two best sides in the tournament.
Both the teams have experimented his idea with batting order but one team turned out to be successful and enters the finals for the first time ever in the history of Indian Premier League. Delhi Capitals will be playing against Mumbai Indians in the finals of IPL on the November 10.
However Sun risers Hyderabad journey to the playoffs was complete roller coaster while Delhi Capitals easily makes it to the playoffs and then to the finals. Although Delhi Capitals at one stage looked miserable to qualify for the playoffs but with the young talents and strike bowlers they have proved it here we are in the finals. Having said, let us take a look at the three players who flopped in the match.
David Warner (SRH)
Another Season and this aggressive left-handed batsman has crossed the mark 500 runs in a season. Sun risers Hyderabad batting has been too much revolve around David Warner.
If warner is successful Sun risers Hyderabad winning ratio but if he fails to score then there is nothing in their batting to turn things around with their fragile middle-order or not having any quality all-rounder.
Chasing 190, it was expected the captain warner to give the start he is famous but that didn’t happened in the knockout game against Delhi Capitals. Warner has scored 2 runs before completely missed the inswinger from Rabada which has went to hit his stumps.
With his wicket Sun risers Hyderabad was never in the game although some effort was made by kane Williamson but he couldn’t get the support from the other players.
Rasid khan (SRH)
If Sun risers Hyderabad batting revolve around David Warner then here is genuine game changer for Sun risers Hyderabad around which Sun risers Hyderabad bowling revolves. In a match Delhi Capitals it was very shocking that Sun risers Hyderabad was playing with quality bowling attack.
These were bowling figures from Rasid khan in a match against Delhi Capitals. There was too much depended on Rasid khan to get early breakthroughs in the match to restrict opposition at the low score. But that never happened and Delhi Capitals went onto posted 189 runs in their 20 overs.
Although in this Sun risers Hyderabad has the worst bowling unit without having any experience pacers in the team.
Another match winner for Sun risers Hyderabad who has failed to perform in a knockout game. With the early wicket of David Warner it was too much depended on Manish Pandey to provide resistance to team.
But it looked he was following the trend of his captain to leave the team in trouble before getting out after scoring just 21 runs.
It was perfect moment for player like Manish Pandey to define his character in the crisis situation for his team to take to the finals one more time and made the statement that my test debut is not far away but looked he has to wait and let us if Sun risers Hyderabad will retain him before the next season.
