Delhi Daredevils will welcome Rising Pune Supergiants in the match 33 of the Indian Premier League 2016. The latest Delhi Daredevils v Rising Pune Supergiants betting tips for this IPL 2016 encounter can be checked below.
The presence of Rahul Dravid in the Delhi Daredevils camp has done wonders for them, as they finally managed to break the seasons long jinx and play with some finesse. Against all odds, they are now sitting on the second place in the league table, with two games in hand.
They last visited the in-form Gujarat Lions in Rajkot, where they surprisingly restricted the hosts to a mere 149 runs for seven wickets. Their bowlers did a terrific job, with Shahbaz Nadeem picking up crucial wickets, and the rest maintaining their economy rates under 8.00. When they came to bat, they achieved the target in the 18th over, losing only two wickets.
Dravid’s mentoring has brought up the young Indian talent in the team and put them under the spotlight. After the likes of Karun Nair and Sanju Samson, it was Rishabh Pant who got the chance yesterday. The young lad scored 69 runs off 40 deliveries, and was the man of the match.
Rising Pune Supergiants on the other hand continue to go through the rut, as they incurred their sixth league defeat. As of now, they are the sixth placed side in the competition.
Things have been going awry for M.S Dhoni’s side, as he is undoubtedly having one of the worst spells in his career as the captain. To make things more worse for him, they have lost their four overseas to injury – Faf du Plessis, Kevin Pietersen, Steve Smith and Mitchell Marsh. They have now brought in Usman Khawaja, George Bailey and Adam Zampa to help them through.
With eight games in, they have now got to win the remaining fixtures to reach the final four. But seeing that they lost to Mumbai Indians recently by eight wickets, it will be interesting to see how these new names perform against the Daredevils.
