Delhi Team News

Delhi have had two comfortable wins in their SMAT journey so far beating both heavyweight Mumbai and Andhra quite comfortably in the two games so far. Nitish Rana has held the batting fort of Delhi in both the games. He was at his destructive best in the game vs Mumbai but even against Andhra, he scored a good 27. The only concern for Delhi would be the top order where Shikhar Dhawan and Hiten Dalal haven’t fired so far and it could just be the calm before the storm.

The bowling has done wonders for Delhi. Ishant Sharma has been among the wicket and so have been Sangwan and Lalit Yadav. These players can not be overlooked in fantasy but they will be up against a strong Kerala side possessing a good batting lineup.

Kerala Team News 

Kerala absolutely smashed Mumbai in their last encounter and it came on the back off a breathtaking inning from Mohammad Azharuddeen who just blew Mumbai away with his 54 balls 137. With Sanju Samson and Robin Uthappa around him, Kerala has a very heavy top order capable of doing well against any bowling attack.

However, Delhi management must have seen the videos of Azharuddeen and must have started working on his strengths and weaknesses and that’s where the challenge lies for him. The challenge for Kerala lies in their bowling too which conceded 196 runs against Mumbai. Sreesanth could be dropped and Sudhesan Midhun might come at his place for this game against Delhi.

DEL vs KER Pitch Report

Wankhede pitch is more friendly to batsmen than bowlers and the example was seen last evening both the teams scored over 190 runs in Mumbai vs Kerala match. However, in the day game Andhra could only manage to score 130 odd but that also boils down to the quality of batting and bowling. The target was chased by Delhi in 17 overs and that’s an illustration how good a track Wankhede is for batting.
