Chennai Super Kings Is Still Looking As The Better Side Than Delhi Capitals In IPL 2021: Ajay Jadeja

Ajay Jadeja, the former Indian cricketer, has picked the 2nd placed MS Dhoni-led Chennai Super Kings (CSK) as the better team than table-toppers Delhi Capitals (DC) in the ongoing season of the IPL.

CSK and DC have proved to be the most consistent sides in the 14th season of the Indian Premier League. The two sides occupy the first two spots in the IPL 2021 points table. While Delhi is placed at the numero-uno spot with eight wins in ten games, Chennai is second with seven victories in nine matches.

Delhi Capitals once again asserted their dominance with a clinical win against Rajasthan. Delhi Capitals beat Rajasthan Royals by 33 runs as the top-ranked Delhi Capitals once again proved that why they are the team to beat in this edition of IPL.
Marvellous bowling from the likes of Anrich Nortje helped DC to defend the 155-run target. But their struggles with the bat on a sluggish pitch and Chennai’s big-match experience make the latter the favourites to go all the way.

Ajay Jadeja said in this regard: “I think Chennai is still looking for the better side among the two, although Delhi is also doing really well. Delhi sometimes get rushed in a big game like we saw today with their batting.

“Semi-final, final are one-game shoot-outs, and Chennai have immense experience of crunch game,” said Ajay Jadeja.

Ajay Jadeja, former Indian cricketer, and commentator said Chennai is ahead of Delhi to win IPL 2021 for their immense experience in crunch games.

The Super Kings will have a chance to regain the top spot on Sunday when they lock horns with the Kolkata Knight Riders in Abu Dhabi. Chennai has 14 points but has a better run rate than Delhi Capitals who has 16 points.

The star of the match between DC and RR was South Africa’s Anrich Nortje who took two important wickets in the four overs spell that he bowled giving away just 18 runs. RR Skipper Sanju Samson played a lone hand of unbeaten 70, but it wasn’t enough on the night as none of the other batsmen managed to hang in with the RR captain.

Pragyan Ojha: MS Dhoni’s Tactics And Strategies Proved Helpful For CSK Players

Meanwhile, former spinner Pragyan Ojha knows MS Dhoni may not be contributing with the bat. But his prowess as a tactician and a leader cannot be understated. Pragyan Ojha also echoed former batsman Ajay Jadeja’s opinion. He said that when it comes to crunch games, CSK skipper MS Dhoni knows how to absorb pressure and play mind games with the opposition.

DC and CSK locked horns earlier in the season where the Rishabh Pant-led unit emerged winners. CSK had scored 188/7, with Suresh Raina scoring a fifty. Still, it wasn’t enough as Delhi Capitals openers Prithvi Shaw(72) and Shikhar Dhawan(85) hit spectacular fifties batting at a strike rate of above 150.

They laid a solid foundation as the openers added 138 for the 1st wicket. DC won by 7 wickets as the likes of Moeen Ali, Shardul Thakur, and Sam Curran were taken to the cleaners. DC has won three consecutive games against CSK and will look to extend their dominance over the former champions in their next meeting as well.

IPL 2021: Ajay Jadeja Reckons Rishabh Pant Should Have Given Frontline Bowlers Of Delhi Capitals Some More Overs

Ajay Jadeja feels that Delhi Capitals skipper Rishabh Pant’s ‘defensive’ move to bowl Marcus Stoinis in the 13th over enabled the Rajasthan Royals to win the IPL 2021 clash on Thursday.

Batting first, DC scored 147-8 in their 20 overs. In response, RR lost five wickets for just 42 runs on board. But David Miller (62 off 43) and Chris Morris (36* off 18) had other plans as the duo enabled Rajasthan to revive the chase and clinch the game by three wickets with two balls remaining.

Ajay Jadeja Criticizes Rishabh Pant Who Switched To Defensive Style From Attacking As Move To Bowl With Marcus Stoinis In The 13th Over Backfired

The Rajasthan Royals changed gears in the 13th over, with Marcus Stoinis conceding 15 runs. Tom Curran then went for 12 in the next. Even after David Miller’s dismissal in the 15th over, a well-set Chris Morris managed to take the game away from the grasp of the Delhi Capitals.

Speaking to Cricbuzz after the match, Ajay Jadeja stated it wasn’t the right move on Rishabh Pant‘s part to hand the ball to Marcus Stoinis in the 13th over. The former India batsman suggested the DC skipper should have looked to wrap up the game by bowling his best bowlers at that stage. The last 2 overs saw 29 runs while the 13th over, 14th over and 16th over saw 12-15 runs which cost DC the match.

“That over [13th, by Marcus Stoinis] kickstarted the chase for Rajasthan Royals. Before it, the scoreboard read 55-5. [Kagiso] Rabada, Avesh Khan, Chris Woakes and R Ashwin, all main bowlers had bowled their 3 overs. When they were bowling, the game was different. I believe you should have bowled your main bowlers some more.”

“The game began to tilt in that over. Unlike CSK, Rajasthan Royals can score quick runs in the end. It’s a game, someone will falter. The mistake was that he [Rishabh Pant] switched to defensive style from attacking and what was done and dusted, he let it revive again,” said Ajay Jadeja.

Chris Morris, the most expensive buy-in IPL 2021 showed his class as he hit his compatriot Kagiso Rabada for 15 runs in the penultimate over and followed it up with two sixes against Tom Curran in the last over to help RR seal the deal. The South African all-rounder’s cameo handed the Rajasthan Royals their first win in IPL 2021 after a loss by 4 runs to Punjab Kings in their opening encounter.

Ajay Jadeja Criticized Rishabh Pant’s Decision To Hold Back Ravichandran Ashwin’s 4th Over

Ajay Jadeja also criticized keeper and new DC skipper Rishabh Pant’s decision to hold back off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin’s final over. Although the experienced off-spinner remained wicketless in his three overs, he was DC’s most economical bowler (4.7).

Ajay Jadeja explained that Rishabh Pant should have bowled his best bowlers in the first 16 overs to take the game completely away from the RR.

“It’s not weird (preserving one over of Ashwin) but it’s a big error. You allowed them to come back into the game. There wasn’t much spin but the batsmen weren’t looking to dominate either. I believe if you bowl your main bowlers in the first 16 overs then you have the best chance.”

“It was a small total and, you know, batsmen don’t find it a lot more difficult to chase in the final few overs here in Mumbai. You want to use Tom Curran and Marcus Stoinis for a total of four overs.

If you had bowled them in the death, they could have got some 70 runs to defend. You allowed them to come back into the game by bowling Stoinis and Tom Curran in the middle overs,” concluded Ajay Jadeja.

Rishabh Pant’s Delhi Daredevils will be looking to return to winning ways when they take on Punjab Kings on Sunday. For Rajasthan, Jaydev Unadkat won the Man of the Match award for returning with figures of 3/15 in 4 overs.

Brief Scores:  Rajasthan Royals 150/7 (David Miller 62, Chris Morris 36*; Avesh Khan 3/32) beat Delhi Capitals 147/8 (Rishabh Pant 51, Tom Curran 21; Jaydev Unadkat 3/15) by 3 wickets.

IPL 2021: Ricky Ponting Reveals Ishant Sharma Is Suffering From Heel Niggle

Ricky Ponting, Delhi Capitals head coach said that Delhi pacer Ishant Sharma is suffering from a heel niggle and the side is working on his faster recovery.

The experienced lanky Indian pacer missed the first two games for Delhi Capitals. Rishabh Pant-led side lost against Rajasthan Royals by three wickets in their second game. Ishant Sharma’s absence created space for Avesh Khan who has impressed with his bowling in both games.

Ricky Ponting: Ishant Sharma Had A Heel Niggle That Delhi Capitals Are Trying To Work Through But Avesh Khan Grabbed The Opportunity With Both Hands

Ishant Sharma was signed up by Delhi Capitals in 2018 for a salary of INR 1.1 crore and was retained by the franchise for the IPL 2021. The right-arm pacer had to miss out on the majority of the previous IPL season due to an injury playing only 1 match. He has taken 72 scalps in 90 IPL games averaging 36.19 and conceding runs at 8.09.

“He has been ultra-impressive, pretty much from the first day we arrived here for the training camp. Physically he looks a little bit better, he lost a little bit of weight from last season. He is definitely fitter and bowling faster.

“Without a little bit of extra fitness on his side, he is able to maintain his action better. His lines and lengths and slower ball execution is excellent so far,” Ricky Ponting said while replying to an ANI query in the virtual post-match press conference.

“Coming into the first game, Ishant Sharma obviously had a heel niggle that we have been trying to work through but Avesh grabbed his opportunity with both hands. He has been around with this franchise for a few years now and has not got the opportunity that he has been craving.

“Look so far, he has been one of our real finds and if you got an Indian fast bowler like him and the likes of Woakes, Rabada, Nortje and T Curran around we end up with a really strong fast bowling brigade,” Ricky Ponting added.

Ricky Ponting feels that spinner Ravichandran Ashwin not completing his four overs is a ‘mistake on their behalf’ despite just giving 14 runs in his three overs.

“That’s certainly something that we will talk about when I get a chance to sit down with the team. He had bowled beautifully. Three overs, none for 14. Hadn’t even conceded a boundary.
“Look he had a disappointing game in game one, but he has worked really hard in the last few days to make sure he adjusted and got things right in this game. I thought he bowled beautifully tonight. Probably a mistake on our behalf, and something we will be talking about later on,” Ricky Ponting said.

Sanju Samson won the toss and opted to bowl against DC. RR pacer Jaydev Unadkat built severe pressure with dot balls. Jaydev Unadkat scalped his third-wicket inside the six overs helping RR limit DC to 36/3 after 6 overs.

MOM Jaydev Unadkat returned with figures of 3/15 in 4 overs which included wickets of openers Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, and Ajinkya Rahane. Rishabh Pant’s 51 helped Delhi reach 147/8. Rajasthan was reduced to 42/5 and then 90/6 but then David Miller and Chris Morris led a fightback as Rajasthan scored 60 runs in the last 5 overs.

Ricky Ponting: Delhi Probably Gave Morris Too Many Easy Balls To Hit

Back in the team, left-handed batsman David Miller produced a 62-run knock and it was followed by Chris Morris’ cameo of 36 runs off just 18 balls as Royals defeated Delhi Capitals at the Wankhede Stadium.

The left-handed batsman came out to bat at the score of 17/3, and he guided Rajasthan’s innings. And with 27 needed off the final two overs, Chris Morris stepped up to the occasion to take his side over the line with two balls to spare.

“We probably gave him (Morris) a few too many easy balls, a few too many slot balls if you like. The length wasn’t quite where it needed to be. If you look at the replay of the game, if you bowled a reasonable yorker, he didn’t score off them.

“If it was back of a length, sort of, above stump high, he didn’t get hold of them either, especially with pace on the ball. We talked about how to bowl to him, but the execution probably wasn’t there,” Ricky Ponting said.

“The other thing you have got to factor in is just how wet and how dewy the ball was in the second innings of the game. It wasn’t easy for the bowlers to grip. You could see it at the end there.

“There were a few full tosses that fast bowlers bowled with the ball slipping out of their hand a little bit. That’s part and parcel of IPL cricket. We knew coming here that there will be a little bit of dew in the second half of the game. And we didn’t adapt, and we didn’t execute as well as we could have tonight,” he added.

Delhi Capitals will next take on Punjab Kings here at the Wankhede Stadium on Sunday.

Brief Scores:  Rajasthan Royals 150/7 (David Miller 62, Chris Morris 36*; Avesh Khan 3/32) beat Delhi Capitals 147/8 (Rishabh Pant 51, Tom Curran 21; Jaydev Unadkat 3/15) by 3 wickets.

IPL 2020: Kevin Pietersen Comes Out in Support of Ravichandran Ashwin On The Mankading Issue

Former England cricketer Kevin Pietersen has come out to back Delhi Capitals’ Ravichandran Ashwin on the issue of Mankading. A recent incident involving Ravichandran Ashwin and Aaron Finch in the DC vs RCB clash, where the former only warned Finch of Mankading when he was caught running early from the non-striker’s end. Ashwin, who has joined DC from KXIP this season did mankading of Jos Buttler, last season in KXIP’s clash against RR.

However, Pietersen was not in the favour of Ashwin back then but now has grown a sentiment for him over the issues of Mankading.

I think what he did was perfect: Kevin Pietersen backs Ravichandran Ashwin on issuing Mankading warning to Finch

Kevin Pietersen, who is a part of the IPL commentary team mentioned that the act of Mankading was frowned upon when he played. He said Mankading is in the rule books and is to be allowed but seeing the Finch- Ashwin incident and how far Finch was before Ashwin released the ball, he feels Ashwin did the right thing.

“Apparently (Mankading) is in the coaching manuals now and is to be allowed,” said Pietersen.

“(But) seeing how far down the wicket Aaron Finch was, almost stealing two metres before Ashwin bowled, I think what he did was perfect, Finch, get back in your crease. Do not steal runs!” he added.

Kevin Pietersen says in the past 12 months he has changed his thoughts and he now backs Ashwin’s actions

KP revealed watching the same incident twelve months back, he would’ve criticized Ashwin’s act but not having analyzed it he feels it’s the right thing to do.

“Watching Ashwin do it twelve months ago I would have said, ‘come on mate, no no no’” but “having thought it over the past 12 months, (I think) it was absolutely perfect what he did,” said Kevin Pietersen.

In an opportunity to ‘Brown’ Aaron Finch, Ravichandran Ashwin gave it a pass and just warned the batsman. Ashwin had been warned by DC head coach Ricky Ponting to avoid Mankading before the season started.

IPL 2020: Delhi Capitals vs Rajasthan Royals – DC Predicted XI

The Delhi Capitals are having their best start to an IPL campaign with four wins in their first five matches. The DC side have a great blend of experience and youth in their team this season, which is giving them the result on pitch. The youngest captain in IPL, 25 year old Shreyas Iyer is leading his side appreciably. DC have faced a major blow with veteran spinner Amit Mishra being ruled out of the tournament due to a finger fracture.

37-year-old Mishra with 160 wickets, is the second-highest wicket-taker in the IPL and highest among spin bowlers in the history of the IPL. He was performing well for the Capitals this term, bagging three wickets in three matches with an economy of 7.34. DC are set to face RR in their next clash on October 9 at the Sharjah cricket stadium.

2. Shikhar Dhawan

4. Rishabh Pant

Pant has lately again found his form with the bat and has consistently quick fired some runs coming at the two down spot for DC. Rishabh Pant has a total 171 runs to his name in the IPL 2020, having played five matches yet. His form will be very important for Delhi, throughout the tournament.

5. Marcus Stoinis

The Australian all-rounder has been a key player in DC’s success this season with both bat and ball. He has scored two half centuries yet, has 123 runs to his name and has also bagged three wickets, in this campaign. He will surely be a part of the team in their clash against Rajasthan Royals.

6. Shimron Hetmyer

The West Indies, southpaw batsman is yet to show his class in the IPL 2020. He has scored 46 runs in three innings for the Delhi Capitals yet and will look to show some big shot against RR at Sharjah.

7. Ravichandran Ashwin

The veteran Indian spinner who was brought from KXIP this term has played three matches and bagged three wickets for DC. His carrom-ball still remains a lethal weapon in the hands of DC and he will be be starting against RR.

8. Kagiso Rabada

Rabada has been in an excellent form for DC, bagging 12 wickets in 5 games. He is the current holder of the purple cap. He had a marvellous four-wicket haul against RCB in their last match, giving away only 24 runs in four overs. Rabada has proved to be undroppable in the DC lineup.

9. Anrich Nortje

South African pacer Nortje was brought in as a replacement of injured Chris Woakes in the team. He is having a good debut season in the IPL having taken seven wickets in five matches bowling at an economy of 7.45. He will also secure his place in the starting lineup against RR.

10. Harshal Patel

Patel proved to be very expensive for DC against RR giving away 46 runs, but his excellent display against KKR, where he bagged two wickets will force the Delhi side to give him another chance. He will retain his place in the starting lineup in the team against RR.

11. Axar Patel
