Royals seeking revenge against Delhi Daredevils
A confident Rajasthan Royals will have revenge on their minds when they take on Delhi Daredevils in the Indian Premier League match at the Sawai Man Singh Stadium tomorrow.
It was Delhi Daredevils who had beaten Rajasthan Royals in their first match and the comprehensive defeat which had strengthened the belief that Royals was a weak team.
But much water has flown under the bridge since then and Shane Warne's men are now the table toppers with 12 points from a 6-2 win-loss record.
With a comprehensive eight wicket victory over Deccan Chargers, the hosts are high on confidence and it is no surprise that skipper Warne has given a war cry asking for revenge.
Warne himself concedes that the defeat in first match was shocking but it also helped in introspection and to work out new strategies. Since then it has been a dream run for the Royals except their loss against Mumbai Indians.
The only matter of concern is injuries of Dimitri Mascarenhas and in-form diminutive opener Swapnil Asnodkar.
"We have a big game against Delhi. A victory would help us entrench our self at the top but a defeat might see few teams tie up," Warne said calculating that Delhi with eight points from seven matches might come level with Chennai and Punjab who also till have 10 points each.
