In the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2014 game played between Delhi Daredevils and Sunrisers Hyderabad, Delhi lost their way after a rousing. Kevin Pietersen in particular looked in superb touch as he clambered Moises Henriques all over the park. Once he got out to Amit Mishra though Delhi struggled to up the ante. Earlier, Quinton de Kock and Pietersen struggled for timing and they almost were run out.
It has to be said that Hyderabad’s bowlers with variety in the attack have struck at regular intervals to keep Delhi’s batsmen in check. If Dale Steyn and Bhuvneshwar Kumar started well then Amit Mishra with his box of tricks took over. He snared the important wicket of Pietersen. Delhi’s hopes now rest on the experienced all-rounder Laxmi Ratan Shukla and Dinesh Karthik.
Shukla did show his class by smashing Mishra for a six. A much needed six for them. They also have JP Duminy to bat. The left-handed batsman with his wide range of shots needs to play a fine innings. A good score on this board would be around 160-170. So, they need to up the ante and score runs.
