Shikhar Dhawan blasts 30-ball fifty for Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Delhi Daredevils

Shikhar Dhawan blasts 30-ball fifty for Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Delhi Daredevils

Delhi who were practically already out of the mix just got a confirmation in today's game that their hopes of qualifying to the Playoffs would not be materialized.

Interestingly, CSK and SRH have played 8 matches head to head and the former team won 6 of them while the latter only 2. The trio have done bulk of the scoring in this IPL season for DD.

The magnificent performance by the duo completely demoralised Delhi Daredevils and SRH would be pretty happy with their batsmen finally coming to the party. Their bowling is seemingly invincible, and now their batsmen are getting in on the game. I am telling the team that we have to be really calm and not worry much about other things. While the likes of Sunrisers Hyderabad and Chennai Super Kings are likely to feature yet again in the tournament's next stage, the remaining teams seem set to battle out fierce competition for the ticket to playoffs. But they have surprised everyone as they have defended totals like 118 and 132, that too very apprehensively. The bowlers clearly looked in their elements with Rashid Khan being the pick of the bowlers against Delhi Daredevils. He has thrived in different match situations in which he has been asked to bowl.

His 13 wicket-tally coupled with a miserly economy rate of 7.05 indicate towards him being a complete bowling package. You can't replace MS at the moment, then you have Dinesh Karthik who also deserves a chance in the national side, especially after what he did in Sri Lanka to win that game which was absolutely lost for India.

Iyer and Shaw's confidence must be a notch higher too, having made the India and India A squads respectively for the United Kingdom series.

"I know I have to excel at every level to leave an impression. All I can say is, I have miles to go before I sleep", said Kaul with sparkling eyes when asked about being unfortunate to miss out on the opportunity in the Sri Lanka ODIs.

The knock came two days after the 20-year-old was ignored from India's T20 squad for their tour of Ireland and England. Winning 3 matches alone on the performances of these three has reaped it rewards for the upcoming stars of Indian cricket.
