Favorite Team: 79p Kolkata
Result: Delhi won
Post Macth, PunterPolls: Rain delayed the match start and reduced to 12 over game. In these situation Toss plays and important role since its been bit easy to chase whatever the score without caring to loose too many wickets.
Sehwag won the toss and as expected ask for field first, at the very moment one can sense that Delhi have increased their chances in the match. KKR strong lined up didn't work and scored just 96 in 12 overs only. Ordinary performance by the KKR team especially when you have players like Gauti, McCullum and Kallis.
But we can't take the credit off from the Delhi bowlers, Morkel's back to back yorker delivering made that special. At break, DareDevils were amongst the favorite with 43p on betfair.
Chasing the Target of 97 Delhi Daredeils got a very good start and scored half of the runs without lossing any wicket. Flinch specially played very well. In between, they got few hick-ups but Irfan managed to finishes it off very well. All in all it was Daredevils day and they performed it well.
Pre Match, Punterpolls: Delhi duo and National teams occassional openers will stands against each other on their first encounter of IPL 2012 edition. Recent past the records of both the captains being batsman is not been that great and to boost their confidence they want to bite the seat taste of this first bite of the tournament.
Delhi Darevils knows failure very well as they had finishes last in the last edition. On the other side, KKR had improved alot last year and finishes at 4th spot last year. In the absense of key players like Peterson, Jayaverdhane and Warner Delhi teams looks an ordinary team and winning this match would be challange for them.
My bet KKR should win this match.
