IPL 2018, DD vs KXIP: 3 Unnoticed things of the match
#2 Too late to make an impact: Sending big hitters down the order
Delhi Daredevils didn’t learn from the mistakes committed by Mumbai Indians yesterday with Pollard and sent their power hitters late in the innings.
The idea behind sending a rookie Rahul Tewatia was understandable but in a flat pitch where sixes and fours is the need of the hour.
He couldn't do much justice and delayed the introduction of power hitters in the form of Daniel Christian and Chris Morris who did their best to reach the score to parity but in the end it was not enough to trouble Punjab batters.
