Cricket News sort by Delhi XI

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 !
