With a top-two finish possible for them, Rising Pune Supergaint will be going full throttle at Delhi Daredevils in their penultimate league match in IPL 10, at the Kotla on Friday. Rising Pune Supergaint have been on a roll, quite a revelation this season after virtually hitting rock bottom last year. The Steve Smith led side, however know how Delhi Daredevils could be even though they are out of playoff contention. Besides hosts are on a high after the thrilling win over Gujarat Lions in their last game.
The home team may not have been the most consistent team in the IPL 10, but they are capable of surprising any team in the competition. In fact, they have the reputation of being the ‘most unpredictable side’. Fighting the frustration of not making it to the last four despite having one of the most talented teams, Delhi Daredevils now have pride at stake.
When the teams met earlier in the league in Pune, Delhi were the winner by a whopping 97 run and had showed plenty of promise. But Delhi Daredevils hast lost steam and Rising Pune Supergaint has been evolved fighting the unit, boasting of a new match winner in every game. The Rising Pune Supergaint story this season is about finding a winner in each game. The team has been able to strike a balance and find personnel who can deliver when needed.
Rising Pune Supergaint have shown the ability to deliver against top teams this season. They have won both their games against Mumbai Indians while beating Kolkata Knight Riders, number two in the table once. They are expected to rise to the challenge on Friday evening. Delhi Daredevils, though, will not be pushovers. It should be a riveting scrap.
