Delhi Daredevils will take on the Rising Pune Supergiant in match 9 of IPL 10 today and the encounter is expected to be a thrilling one keeping in mind the strong batting RPS possess in front of the decent DD bowling attack.
Rising Pune Supergiant have started their tournament on a higher note and have registered one win out of the two matches they have played till now, while on the other hand Delhi will be hoping to register their first win of the tournament.
If the Delhi Daredevils wish to succeed then they cannot solely depend on their bowlers as their batsmen still have to prove their mettle. In their first match against Royal Challengers Bangalore, only Sam Billings and Rishabh Pant performed decently with the bat. So if DD are to record a win then the team as a whole must come good.
With Smith, MS Dhoni, in-form Ajinkya Rahane and all-rounder Ben Stokes in the line-up, the batting at least on paper is not a big worry. But they have to work on their bowling, their weaker suit.
