First Semi Final - Rajasthan Royals vs Delhi Daredevils

tags: delhi, daredevils, IPL, criccket

Great match coming up tomorrow. There is always a Semi-final jinx in any sport. Rajasthan being the top team in the tournament are the favorites but should be cautious in the big game.

Delhi on the other hand has lot to prove. Almost the next best team at the start of the tournament but lost its way. I think they are a little weak on the bowling department.

No matter who wins, it sure gonna be a cracker.

Watch out for ...

  • Tanvir against Delhi's openers, Sehwag and Gambhir.

  • Glenn McGrath. Rajasthan were able to score only 33 runs off his eight overs in the league games.

  • Yusuf Pathan and Shane Watson, who form the mainstay of Rajasthan's power-hitting arsenal.

  • "It's been an interesting journey with the Daredevils. Basically, we have been in three finals already to get in to the semi-finals. If that doesn't prepare you for a semi-final, then nothing else will. To get through three must-win games steels the team. It will be a huge advantage for Viru and his guys. Dennis Lillee, Delhi's cricket advisor on the team's preparations.
