On Saturday, it’s again a ‘Double Dhamaka’ of the 11th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) as there are two matches and the first one will be played between the teams who have lost their first two matches of the season, Mumbai Indians (MI) and Delhi Daredevils (DD). While MI lost two close matches against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) and Chennai Super Kings (CSK), DD lost their first two games against Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) and Rajasthan Royals (RR). However, the third game becomes much more important for both the teams as they would now like to make a comeback in order to gain some early momentum. Let us look at the five players to watch for of the crucial game.
1. Gautam Gambhir (DD)
Gautam Gambhir, captain of Delhi Daredevils, scored his 36th half-century in the curtain raiser of his team. In the process, Gambhir has joined David Warner at the top as the batsman with most IPL half-centuries (36). Delhi’s batting was expected to revolve around their experienced captain and Gambhir played the exact innings. Although he didn’t bat in the rain-affected game against RR, after facing a loss in the first two games, he again needs to perform well for the team in the third game.
