Delhi Capitals have risen to number two in the league table after losing to Sunrisers Hyderabad in a thrilling match on Sunday. Rishabh Pantra batted first and gave the Sunrisers a target of 160 runs. The match was tied in the allotted 20 overs and the game ended in a super over. However, Virender Sehwag, surprised by the Sunrisers’ decision, exploded his anger after the match. Sunrisers have washed away the authorities.
For the Sunrisers, Ken Williamson top-scored with six runs, but Johnny Bairstow played a stormy 38 off just 18 balls at the start of the innings. However, to everyone’s surprise, Warner and Ken Williamson entered the crease with the bat instead of Bearstore in the super over. Sehwag was shocked by this decision and sent a funny tweet. Seeing that tweet, one can understand why Sehwag is so famous for stabbing.
The former devastating opener for India wrote, ‘If Bairstow hadn’t been stuck in the toilet, I would have been surprised by the Sunrisers’ decision. In the main innings, he made 36 runs from 18 balls. I am sure that among the batsmen of the Sunrisers team, Bairstow is capable of playing big shots. The Sunrisers fought well but lost at the last minute with all these strange decisions. They are responsible for this defeat.
Meanwhile, in the match between Chennai Super Kings and Royal Challengers Bangalore, Rabindra Jadeja took the bat by storm yesterday. Chennai Super Kings won the toss and elected to field. In the last over of the innings, Jadeja made 36 runs by beating Herschel Patel! He hit 5 sixes and 1 four off 6 balls. Then he took 3 wickets for 13 runs with the ball. Bangalore captain Virat Kohli is happy to see this form of Jadeja.
The T20 World Cup is ahead. So Kohli is very happy to see this form of Jadeja, ‘Everyone is watching his ability. I’m really happy to see him perform at bat-ball-fielding. He will play for India in a couple of months and it is a great pleasure to see the main all-rounder of the team perform like this with the bat. When he performs well and is confident, it creates a lot of opportunities.
After the match, Chennai captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s voice was also heard praising Jadeja. Dhoni is not in good form in the current IPL. Speculation has started about his IPL career. This form of Jadeja is like water in the desert for Dhoni. Dhoni said, ‘Jaddu (Jadeja) is someone who can change the game alone. His batting has improved significantly in the last few years. So it is okay to give him extra time, extra delivery to play.
