Sehwag fires Delhi to thumping win over Warriors

Pin It

Skipper Virender Sehwag butchered Pune Warriors India attack as Delhi Daredevils romped home by eight wickets in an Indian Premier League encounter in Pune thus retaliating their loss to them couple of days back in Delhi.

Sehwag scored 87 off a mere 48 balls as Delhi extracted sweet revenge for the defeat at the hands of the same opposition three days back.

Sehwag’s innings was studded with 10 fours and three sixes as Delhi won with as many as four overs to spare.

Had it not been for Sehwag’s swashbuckling innings, the target of 147 would have been challenging. But the Delhi hotshot displayed his class to help his team overhaul the target with four overs to spare.

Earlier, Manish Pandey in particular who was sent to open the innings with Ryder made the most of the opportunity as he reminded of his supreme form while he used to play for RCB. He began his innings on a careful note and then went on to hit his trademark effortless boundaries. His partner Uthappa did not get carried away, rather he was sensible enough to keep the partnership going.

The only relief for Pune was Mahela’s run-out and Pietersen’s wicket, who was caught at mid-on. The rest of the bowlers could do nothing to stop Sehwag who smashed 87 runs from just 48 balls. Ganguly could not repeat his magic with the ball as he brought himself into the attack in the seventh over and did not turn over again as it produced 12 runs.

Delhi Daredevils are deservedly the table-toppers now and the other teams will have to deliver their best to replace them from the numero uno spot.
