IPL 2019 | Match 52 | KXIP vs KKR | Mohali | May 3rd @ 8 PM IST

Recommended Posts

KKR has been a great batting unit but had a terrible bowling unit this season. In the 6 matches losing streak, they lost 5 by batting first and 1 they lost while chasing was a close match with them almost pulling off 213. Part unlucky and part terrible Team management.

In hindsight KKD's selection is not that bad. This guy shows the ability to hit the ball as soon as he walks in. Striking form at the right time.

and i think thats his role..strike from ball one. Rohit knows this aspects usage very well and has spoken about this in past and i am sure he had told Kohli and Dhoni.

Their batting is far too good enough to outweight their bowling

 

Just compare this

 

Narine  vs  Tahir

Bhajji  vs Chawla

Jaddu vs Kuldeep

Russell vs Bravo

Chahar vs Prasidh/Warrier

Thakur vs Gurney/Ferguson

 

Looking at this there is not much difference. Given the fire power they have right through their line up man to man KKR is significantly stronger than the Retired XI lol

poor bowling and poor lineup with Russell coming down the order just because he can go bang bang.

CSK has no chance in a realistic match against MI or KKR or even SRH with Warner/Bairstow some Dhoni / Flemming wizardry is on going, we are not understanding it.

Dhoni knows how to create panic among the opposition. They have mastered that over the years.

Don't think anyone else is captain material there. 

Yes, the replacements aren't available. Still he needs to be sacked for stupid captaincy and more importantly lack of performance from team. Too much chopping and changing in playing 11.

KL Rahul 

First of all he has to fix his own head before fixing the heads of others. Let him be where he is. As it is his head is messed up. A nervous wreck at the international level.  Ashwin is the least harmful choice. He wants to do it with full conviction. That is all you need at this point. It is different that he is not doing it very well. PKXI has had Mahela, Sanga, Gilchrist . They did jack either. Some of them were worse than this. ATleast he tries albeit there is lot of scope for improvement

Ashwin has had enough opportunities. It’s all because of his constant chop and change to his playing XI that KXIP has failed to qualify for the playoffs 2 years in a row from strong positions. 

 

KL Rahul can be a good positive choice just like Iyer is for Delhi

Iyer had a share of dumb stupid calls as well. Rabada saved his ass most of the time. KL Rahul a meek guy who has this stage fright even as a player. Not a captaincy material any chance. There is a problem with his squad. Not many T20 specialists. Gayle T20 specialist. KL Rahul decided to change  to ODI specialist for selfish reasons. personally i am happy with that. Agarwal not a T20 specialist. Mandeep not a T20 specialist.  Curran is fairly new. David Miller utter flop. Not an ideal side.

Lets not apoil KL Rahul by giving captaincy as he will fail..give it to gayle or something. Could be bad or it could be really good. With puran curran they have two super solid guys they should retain and make Gayle captain. Also pic some young indian bowlers.

Rohit is blessed with strong bowling line up and couple of massive hitters down the order. He could make mistakes and get away. But others have to understand stability is more important. If you want to learn something from Dhoni that is it. Identify the XI and back them. Kohli is the opposite. Very impatient. Couple of failures he will toss them out.  First job is to identify the perfect XI in the very first match stick to it. One or two changes may be depending on the conditions.

Indeed Rabada and Shikhar Dhawan as well has changed the ranking of this DC team by their performances.

 

Dhawan solves the lack of runs by DC openers in last IPL.

 

Rabada solved the lack of wickets issue by DC pacers.

 

Pant and Iyer are no more the only two performers. With Dhawan and Rabada joining the camp and performing Delhi has more performers this IPL.
