Delhi has all the ingredients to be a very good team

Recommended Posts

I am really surprised and should say very very impressed by the way DD has fought till the last over even though they were chasing a mammoth total and loosing wickets.


They may be out of this IPL but they have most of the bases covered for having a very successful campaign next year. They just need to learn the knack of "not loosing" wickets in key times and build patnerships like "Vijay-Pant" one. 

 

I felt Prithvi's wicket, Munro's wicket and Shreyas's wicket were unnecessarily lost (i.e. gifted away to opposition). 

 

I can see Delhi going only way up from the current state.

Before the match I said Doni will never like  lose to a young upcoming player as captain. The way he was behaving at the end and was angry at Bravo, Show you the actual egoistic loser he is. You expect him to support young players in the team? There’s a reason why he’s compiled an old men’s club at CSK, so that he can boss over them and everybody suck him dry...

 

Look at the way he was angry at Bravo for giving away runs because he wanted to win this match against a Young team to show his delusional fans how great he is... What would’ve happened if these young kids won? CSK is already at the top of the table. But that show his mean attitude towards young players, make no mistake...

Never shown this passion for RPS though. He takes this Micky mouse tournament way too seriously as if he has to give some pleasure to those folks down South who nobody give any attention rest of the year.

If only he showed the same passion in International matches for India...

 

I’ve feeling that some team might still manage to poop in his party this year too... :phehe:

I would rather watch a young team give it their best every time even if they lose in the last over most time .

This is the first time I've watched these many games in IPL. There should be no place for non-performers even if how big of a player he is. I hate it when they waste our time with sub-standard performance.

Batting is hit and miss but still can play fearlessly and do miraculous job ,bowling is a no show and their is no bowling plan when we take the field ,we are clueless in that department ,need a narine type bowler

When you are at the bottom of the table, up is the only direction in which you can move.

International bowlers coming up short when taken on have let them down.

if they start to drop non performers their wnt be any team left

You severely underestimating the potential of youngsters. There's a reason why we have not won a single T20 world cup since it's inaugural one where we fielded full of youngsters.

Problem with RR is that only Archer n Samson are the only one performing and somewhat gowtham n gopal ( whom they dropped).......

 

kis kis ko drop kroge

Thought we are talking about DD here. 

About RR, they lack aggressive openers. They should try to open with Gowtham in one match and see how things go.

About DD, till the time seniors wnt standup they aint winning regulalry. youngster will win u few games but not the crunch ones

that was just the start of T20 cricket. Same team wont do zilch if they were playing today.  T20 needs experienced players whether they are young or old.  Inexperienced youngsters will be inconsistent and will buckle under pressure.

Those experienced players should be competent enough to get into the team. You can not have them just for the sake of it.

its not that they bought badly, many of us here were calling them the best team

Munro, roy, maxwell, morris all can form a scary lineup on paper .........but they never clicked so it remains same on paper. No one can anticipate if good players will fail

Gambhir was selected as captain who has been gr8 in ipl as captain was expected to keep scoring decent runs n to lead the side well . But neither did the runs neither did the team click

 

Cricket at the end is unpredictable game, how many of us expected gayle to do well or even ambati n raydu to have dream seasons?

How many expected dhoni or watson to do well??

 

 

How many predicted DD will do so bad, most were rating them as the best or among the best teams

It is indeed surprising that we last won the T20 cup in 2007. Been a decade and the team has been unable to lift the trophy again inspite of the IPL starting in 2008. The T20 performance has been very bad since the opening tourney. Somehow the impact of IPL is not seen in the T20i level, whatever the reason may be.

  • Conservative approach, we have gone with same team n combination as went in odi for many yrs
  • dhoni captaincy n own perfomance was below avg in all t20 WC
  • fitness standards werent gr8 in many, gary kirsten wrote a report in post 2010 wc that how fit is he himself then many team members
  • the bowling didnt click in many , which was one the biggest factor in 2007
  • raina n rohit who were youngster never went on to the brilliance level of taking one tournament on their own...kohli did it thrice 
  • Yuvraj, gambhir, zaheer, sehwag, bhajji declined as a core team not only in their perfomance but in terms of fitness as well 
  • we had rahane in 2 Wc in the team playing crucial matches
  • Dhawan n dhoni were below avg in t20
  • rohit as usual highly inconsitent
  • raina's perfomance depended on conditions
  • Jadeja never a good t20 player
  • bumrah came in last WC, before that we didnt have much in pace bowling
  • mishra was our wrist spinner, who starts bowl really fast when he is taken for cleaners
  • no all rounders 

Their was no reason that we shud have won any of the t20 WC , we had plenty of problems .

With IPL as the biggest T20 tourney , players getting experience playing along with or against world's best cricketers,  it would be a huge factor towards team doing well in T20i cup. Ideally we must be dominating the T20i cup.
