@Trichromatic Match Report for today's game

 

-----------------------------------------------------

 

 

Dominating win for the Delhi Capitals over the Chennai Super Kings as they remain undefeated

 

Delhi Capitals openers Shaw and Dhawan learnt from their last match and started their innings conservatively to build a platform for an attack in the later stages of their innings. They quickly accelerated once the spinners came on as Shaw showed his class with a quick-fire 50. Dhawan also overcame his slow start to dominate Chennai Super Kings spinners Chawla and Jadeja. CSK managed to pull it back with Chawla dismissing both the openers. DC batsmen Pant and Iyer showed some intent but CSK was able to restrict DC to 175.

CSK openers Watson and Vijay also started off slowly and Watson was beginning to look dangerous when he holed out to the deep fielder off of DC spinner Patel’s bowling. Then CSK was never in the game as the DC spinners Patel and Mishra strangled the batsmen from scoring quickly. CSK batsman Du Plessis did his best but it was too little too late as they were unable to keep up to the required rate. Also the DC pace attack of Rabada and Nortje was hard to score off in the “death” overs.

CSK has to do some soul searching as they have lost their second match in a row without much fight and are currently with a 1-2 win/loss record. Dhoni needs to rethink his batting order and maybe put himself up the order. Vijay, Jadhav and Gaikwad’s form is also not that great. The spinners are also not firing and needs to be addressed.

Meanwhile, DC find themselves at the top of the table with 2 wins. They came with a plan to not lose too many wickets too early and bowled with a gameplan in mind. Iyer must be feeling great about his captaincy as he seems to be handling it quite well and must get the hang of things on that front. Iyer and the DC must be hoping this winning feeling continues as they are prime contenders in the play-offs and possibly the title this season.

Dhoni at the post match presentation said they will look at certain slots after this break they are getting. CSK has to think out of the box and make use of power play overs instead of ruining the chase upfront & making it difficult for the middle order.

Also, strength of CSK in last 2 years was having multiple bowling options, which has not been the case so far. I think they should be go with following lineup

Ruturaj

Faf

Curran

Rayudu

Jadhav

Dhoni

Jadeja

Shardul

Deepak Chahar

Hazlewood

Tahir

 

Time to get rid of has beens like Watson & Vijay.

Say what you want about Watson. But while he was there, there was atleast some hope that he could clear the field with his monstrous hits. Once he was gone, it went downhill. Faf tried to hold his end up but Vijay, Jadhav are the real has beens. Watson and Dhoni are the only ones who can clear these long boundaries on sheer power. Vijay and Jadhav used timing and there shelf life is shorter than power hitters. Not that Watto and thala are gonna win all the time but they do have the x factor.

Watson imo is done. Watson at his best was the biggest MVP of IPL, however 2018 was his last hurrah. Overseas slot is precious commodity, you cant waste it on past it player.

He is a big match player. He almost won the last IPL finals if not for Jaddu's crazy running. The only other guy who can replace him as an overseas player is Bravo but he is also getting older lol.

No need of Bravo also. Curran is doing a good job. Hazlewood & Tahir have to play in this lineup.

I thought of that also. Tahir in place of Chawla who seems jaded and confused. Tahir bowls with vareity IIRC he won the purple cap last season. I wonder why he is not played. Who would have thought that rayudu will be missed. @velu say sorry to rayudu :giggle:

Good report , a bit   sugary/positive. Bring about the lack of fluency in Delhi batting, Shreyas SR against pace bowling . In the end it was par score based on CSK batting.  VJ’s incompetence and why did CSK keep a SR of 5 till 12 overs chasing less than 9 RRR. They had lack of intent due to early stage of tournament. Keeping 8  RPO chasing 9 RRR shows intent. They are thoroughly missing Raina and now even Rayudu. Jadhav is neither a batsman nor a bowler. Amit Mishra bowled on line and deceiving variation , impressive after being a plan B bowler replacing Ashwin.

It was a quick report so didn't go into detail. I was also about to criticize Delhi's drop catches and Dhawan was a bit slow to start off with. It was a Shaw show from the start. I also didn't want to be accused of being salty after the loss :laugh: Also winners get the praises :hatsoff: trichro has plans to put this into twitter so I also want to be as neutral as possible as it contained too much CSK and less of DC when I typed it quickly. Then I fixed it to include more of DC players.

Faf is culprit Spend far too much time and Doing a T20 Dravidesque inning which will never win them match. CSK is missing Raina. 

Every player looks good when they dont play

 

Ppl forget how bad raina have become now,not only he has bouncer problem but many more now....opp had rabada n norje. 

Only value he wud have added was saving runs in field. He also like most hasnt played cricket for more then a year

 

They just need rayudu back n some adjustments in batting order. 

 

Faf best use is powerplay

You are not even extrapolating. You are making assumptions. Assuming Raina will fail when team was gun whe he was in playing 11 just a season back is too far fetched. Also l, there is nothing new about Rainas bouncer issue. 
 

 Faf finished games for CSK which is fact.

Raina atleast shows some intent like Watson, Rayudu and Curran while others including Faf, Dhoni and Jadeja have been found wanting in that departemnt.

but its just not a bouncer issue anymore, he has been troubled by spinners n full deliveries equally so he wont have made any diff

See, i do not want to argue on Raina’s current tech ability as its your word vs mine with no basis to proove if Raina will be good or not. What is certain is that CSK is missing what Raina did till last season and may have done this year
