    65247, agree about Smith, and not enough use made of genuine pinch hitters in limited overs cricket, but easier to look good as captain with intelligent, skilled bowlers able to work to plans. Rather skipper RR than DD in the field!

    great captaincy from steven smith to bring kevom cooper at n.o 3 and good rotation of bowlers,future captain of australia

  • POSTED BY steve48 on | May 16, 2014, 10:47 GMT

    Watched the whole match, and yes, DD were a shambles. Now I assume Gary Kirsten has some say in team selection also? Why criticism only of KP here? Yes, he was made to look a bit silly in the field here, either chasing the ball with his fielders or concocting plans that immediately failed, but with THAT bowling 'attack' , no captain could have maintained control. They should explain not using Shami, Parnell, Rahul, and more input and leadership on field is needed from senior pros. Have to say, it was painful to watch. As for KP the batsman, he needs help and advice about trying too hard, everyone assumes he is arrogant, but if ever I saw a top player having a confidence crisis, it is him. Needs to go watch some of his past innings, and let it flow. How much has his ECB humiliation hurt him? T20 is a tough arena to prove a point in, esp captaining those bowlers!

    @Krishnank34 and many others I dont understand your attitude or problem.If a team plays badly or chokes is that a problem of the opposition.If KKR were deciminated from 121 for no loss to 123-6 blame kkr dont say RR got a gift their bowlers bowled well took wickets.If the same thing is done by a team like csk rcb you guys will say wow what a game how well they played and stuff if you dont like a team leave it there dont insult them if RR has 14 points its coz they earned it unlike teams with big shots and going nowhere

    One of the main reason for DD's failure is batting. its not clicking at all this season, hence DD's bowlers are also under pressure, when defending a moderate target...

  • POSTED BY Wakenaam1103 on | May 16, 2014, 9:38 GMT

    Why they continue to play Stuart Binny is beyond me. He ha scored 114 runs in 11 innings! Pathetic. In the meanwhile Brad Hodge is warming the benches. Binny only playing on past performance.

    DD have gifted this victory to the Royals. Batting first on a dying track - one that's bound to get slower - was one of the main culprits. Poor shot selection - the other. Just like KKR, it seems every team is hell bent on gifting free points to RR. IPL teams need to be more competitive and not just gift their points to the opposition. An easy match to be won, but lost. DD have let their fans down, yet again!!!

  • POSTED BY Cricketfan11111 on | May 16, 2014, 8:00 GMT

    @niazbhi, only Dhoni, Raina and Jadeja were indian internationals when CSK chose them in the open auction where these players were available to other franchises as well. Ashwin and MSharma are CSK finds. They played for india later. You can give some credit to csk for grooming them. Pandey is yet to play for india. This year only one other spot available for an indian domestic player. Dhoni is trying different players- Manhas, Negi, Shankar- to find the suitable one for that 7th indian in the team.

  • POSTED BY Naresh28 on | May 16, 2014, 7:23 GMT

    A few Indian bowlers have made a mark on the IPL. Although Praveen Kumar has only played a few matches, I feel this guy could lead the Indian bowling attack. Him and Bhuvi have the same style with the ball. Chahal, Tambe and Bhajji are bowling well amongst the spinners. Sandeep Sharma promised in a game or two but has now become expensive in his spells.

  • POSTED BY Naresh28 on | May 16, 2014, 6:25 GMT

    Tiwary's return could be good news from a team India perspective. As said by @nampally - there is a need for teams like DD and MI to lift there game in all departments. These teams seem to turn up to play but dont seem to enjoy the challenge. RR has been the best - giving ALL players a go in the 11 and also playing as a unit lifts the team spirit. India will not struggle to find batsman for the various 11's and formats - the biggest challenge will be finding the bowlers.

  • POSTED BY niazbhi on | May 16, 2014, 6:13 GMT

    KP was undoubtedly a great batsman for IPL. May be he has lost it in this IPL. You need to have a few decent bowlers.. DD seems to think Sukla can be their spearhead... he did not even get to bowl regularly for KKR. Tahir bowled well does not mean Tiwary will.. I do not understand why Rajsthan gets all the great allrounders and CSK keeps almost half of indian national team.

  • POSTED BY on | May 16, 2014, 5:51 GMT

    In the land of Ben & Cutting-Chai (Ahmedabad), Ben Cutting didn't have a debut worth his reputation as a future great batting all-rounder for Australia.

  • POSTED BY Greatest_Game on | May 16, 2014, 4:23 GMT

    @ Nampally commented "A change in Captaincy from KP to Tiwary will give DD some badly needed wins."

    A change in Captaincy from KP to ANYONE, including the ball boys, would help! As soon as KP came in Delhi commenced to lose. Even Shikar Dhawan is a better captain, and face it - he is hopeless. KP - $1.5 million of ……. nothing!

  • POSTED BY Greatest_Game on | May 16, 2014, 4:18 GMT

    Delhi took 5 wickets. Three of them were taken by South African spinners. But, as we all know, Saffas can't bowl spin, right? Truly, we hear that from SC posters day after day after day…….

    Surely kp is not a captain material n not in form too so he surely he should be benched without doubt.... Secondly need experince bowlers n shami n parnell must me there for rahul n kaul too support...... Dumminy is my captain .... even why did delhi buy kp instead of warner who is much better buy than kp at the moment .....

  • POSTED BY cricketlover111 on | May 16, 2014, 0:36 GMT

    DD please don't play Taylor at No.6, leave him on the bench if you can't see what a mistake this is. He is a great player who was in good form until DD got hold of him.

    Strange- all the comments saying what a wonderful batsman/captain/person Pietersen is and how he would use the IPL to make England look silly seem to have dried up.

  • POSTED BY lian_14 on | May 15, 2014, 22:09 GMT

    Can we just take a moment to note that KP is worth close to a Glenn Maxwell and a George Bailey combined in the IPL auction? In Bailey, you would have got a good captain who would actually make sense of the batting line-up, and in Maxwell, well you know what he's done in the IPL.

  • POSTED BY Navin84 on | May 15, 2014, 22:00 GMT

    Am I the only one that feels that KP as captain is Delhi's biggest problem. Back in 2009 when he was captain of Bangalore and led them to something like 5 straight losses and when they changed him to Anil Kumble, they reached the final. For god's sake please remove KP from the captaincy.

  • POSTED BY Nampally on | May 15, 2014, 20:56 GMT

    DD played a totally thoughtless XI vs. RR & lost by a huge margin. Whilst the 3 spinners Duminy, Nadeem & Tahir got 5 wkts.for 75 in 11 overs, Shukla, Kaul & Tiwary leaked away 106 runs in 9 overs without capturing a wkt. Why was a foreign Fast bowler like Parnell or Neesham or Hodge not used instead of Taylor? In addition DD's most promising bat Jadhav is still sent at #7. Unfortunately he got run out today but he should go #5 with Duminy rightly sent #4. At least Tiwary saved DD from a humiliating low score mainly with the help of the bowlers. DD a good side but needs a more skilled Captain who understands his players & the Team's needs. If Manoj Tiwary is fit, He would have been the ideal Captain leaving KP to focus on batting. Tiwary knows all the Indian players + is a good batsman + has captained Bengal in Ranji before his injury problems. A change in Captaincy from KP to Tiwary will give DD some badly needed wins. KP is not a good T20 Captain & is struggling to score runs!

    Its not as bad a team as it stands.... hugely mismanaged.... When Karthik was captain, he atleast effected 2 wins.... KP did not put effort to learn his team mates... so never knew how to lead a side... he could be a good batsman.... but surely not the case in leadership role..... their other option should be JP Duminy. But Karthik did fairly well in leading...

  • POSTED BY parikshit_Ops on | May 15, 2014, 19:50 GMT

    Delhi easily the worst team. They don't have any will to win. KP has been a failure. He had ample chances, guess he should not have been captain. He is no good for thatDD had good batting before they came to tournament. They just didn't utilize it. Vijay, Karthik, 2 Tiwarys and Jadhav. Brilliant Indian batting supply, although the bowling talent is not much there, but neither KP nor Karthik earlier could make right decisions. In this game, good for Tiwary that he got 61 N.O. but feel bad for poor Jadhav who is denied a chance to bat up no matter what he does. Was unlucky to be Run Out

  • POSTED BY android_user on | May 15, 2014, 19:25 GMT

  • POSTED BY desiboy454 on | May 15, 2014, 19:17 GMT

    This team needs some major Changes! KP needs to be dropped just becuase he is now working, unless he can score in some other t20 leauges before the IPL next year. Vijay was always persisted with by CSK, DD need to do the same. De Kock is a must.. 7/10 he will provide a start. DK batted at 3 for MI, so here bat at 3, and JP cant bad lower than 4. Follow that with Yadav to keep middle/death over ticking. Jimmy Nesham a good batting all rounder or Parnell a good bowling all rounder, should depend on if the pitch will allow JP to bowl 2 -3 over or not. Couter Nile, Shami def the 2 bowlers. I dont know why DD dont play Rahul Sharma.. He was really good for Pune, they should back him. He is not international level but def IPL worthy. and then either Kaul or Unadkat. RCB played with Unadkat a lot. My xi for DD next year to be competitive, wont WIN IPL trophy.

    1.De Kock 2.Vijay 3.Karthik 4.JP 5.Yadav 6.Jimmy Nesham/Parnell 7.Courter-Nile 8.Shami 9.Rahul Sharma 10.Unadakat11.Kaul/Nadeem

    DD what a terrible display....KP just showed why he should never be leading this team...negative right from the start...winning the toss and bowling first on a dying track....bad field placings but really the bowling was shocking.....KP once again failed to lead from the front at the crease...no point batting Taylor at 6 facing 14 an over with 12 to go....hopeless ...time to give Nessham again...certainly cant do any worst than the bowlers on display.

  • POSTED BY on | May 15, 2014, 18:57 GMT

    There we go again why no Hodge RR is performing really well as a unit a well set one each one with a specific role only one selection bewilders me and that is of Binny this fellow is woefully out of form cant score runs but RR is keen on sending him up the order luckily he got out the second ball he faced.If Sanju can be axed for a game to give the news we want runs from why not drop Binny.Rest this entire unit is near to perfect no need for changes.Dravid Pujara athetist when all four of the foreign players are performing well why do you need to axe them just to play Hodge.Moreover Hodge is a vetran t20 player that given a chance he can do what is needed at present I dont think that is needed only need of the hour is ask stuey binny to warm benches for some games and get a bowler probably vikramjeet mallik or someone in his place

  • POSTED BY Cricketfan11111 on | May 15, 2014, 18:51 GMT

    Where did KP captain successfully in his career? Why appoint him as captain? His poor form didn't help DD's course either. Franchises' first priority must be choosing the captain. Captain's man management skill is very important in bringing out the best from the players other than his cricketing tactics. I don't think KP fits the bill as captain. Too much chopping and changing of players. DD's campaign is over this year. They have to start planning for next year.

  • POSTED BY android_user on | May 15, 2014, 18:36 GMT

    Too bad DD are playing Rosco at slogger/finisher spot at no. 6/7. He must be given the chance at no. 3 or 4. He's past those slog sweeps circa 2006-2011 and needs time to settle in.

  • POSTED BY Sgtm1993 on | May 15, 2014, 18:30 GMT

    I don't want to blame a single player for such a humiliating loss but KP surely needs to drop himself. His batting has been atrocious and no wonder ECB dumped him. He was a good player in his prime, but very inconsistent and always played a rash shot that cost him a chance for a good score. I don't rate him as a "great player." He might win you few games by his amazing scoring ability but like i said, the next time you always knew that he was gonna get out cheaply. The management has been ridiculous. KP always has words like "need to get our straps, pull up our socks, etc." well, its not Easy KP. Pathetic, absolutely pathetic. Four over seas player are Taylor(c), Dumminy, Tahir, Dekock.

Royals v Daredevils, IPL 2014, Ahmedabad May 15, 2014

Batsmen set up big win for Royals

The Report by Abhishek Purohit
  shares

Play 05:52

Rajasthan Royals 201 for 6 (Rahane 64, Samson 40, Tahir 2-25) beat Delhi Daredevils 139 for 9 (Tiwary 61*, Bhatia 2-18) by 62 runs
Scorecard and ball-by-ball details

Rajasthan Royals took another step towards the playoffs, crushing bottom-placed Delhi Daredevils for their seventh win. The defeat also ended a very slim chance Daredevils had of making the top four. Royals were ahead right through the game after being asked to bat on a pitch that got slower as the game progressed, a decision Kevin Pietersen later conceded was wrong.

Ajinkya Rahane provided the base with a steady 64, Kevon Cooper and Sanju Samson the momentum in the middle, and James Faulkner the finishing flourish as Royals racked up 201 for 6. Pietersen had backed his batsmen to chase whatever Royals scored, but Daredevils crumbled without much fight, most of it coming from Manoj Tiwary, who was unbeaten on 61.

Rahane and Karun Nair got Royals going with an opening partnership of 44 in 5.3 overs. The new ball in the first innings was probably the best time to bat on the pitch, and Rahane was away with a series of fours. Nair caught up when he lofted Siddarth Kaul for a couple of boundaries, but was caught in front next over by Shahbaz Nadeem.

Cooper had come in at No. 10 in his only game of the season before tonight. He was sent in at No. 3 to go after the bowling, and he did exactly that, swatting three sixes in a 16-ball 32. The spinners were operating at that time, and with the pitch turning, Royals might have stalled. Cooper, although he never looked in control, did not allow that to happen. When one of his mis-hits finally went to a fielder, Samson came in and ensured there was no let-up in the scoring, lofting and flat-batting Kaul for two sixes in the 15th over.

Rahane had been going at just over run-a-ball at the other end, but he opened up in the next over as Royals surged to a big finish. Rahul Shukla was taken for three fours behind square leg in the 16th over, once by Samson and twice by Rahane. The opener swung Nadeem for six over deep midwicket in the following over before he was bowled for 64 off 50.

Imran Tahir bowled a superb 18th over, conceding only two and removing Stuart Binny with a googly and Samson, for 40 off 25, with a legbreak. Seeing that, Pietersen decided to give the penultimate over to part-timer legspinner Tiwary, whose only over earlier had gone for 11. Ben Cutting and Faulkner swung him for a six each. Faulkner hit two successive ones over long-on off Shukla in the last over to push Royals past 200. Royals had taken 77 off the final six overs, despite Tahir.

Mayank Agarwal hit a few fours off the new ball, but after he failed to clear mid-off in the third over, Daredevils quickly fell apart. Dinesh Karthik swung a Dhawal Kulkarni slow bouncer to fine leg, and the slow bowlers came on to squeeze Daredevils further.

JP Duminy could not keep a cut down off Pravin Tambe, and Rajat Bhatia's leg rollers took care of Pietersen and Ross Taylor. Tiwary and Kedar Jadhav were the last batting pair at 58 for 5 in the 10th over but a direct hit from Cutting separated them.

Tiwary hung around till the end, but reducing the margin of defeat was to no avail when the campaign had already ended.
