DC vs RR: “When expectations are over, don’t be hopeless” – this is probably the basic mantra of Rajasthan Royals in the current season. The surprising manner in which the Royals defeated the Delhi Capitals brings to mind the same basic mantra for the Royals. And the four players who have been the biggest heroes of their victory, fully meet this.
Who was not expected to play, he became a hero!
However, if Morris could do it, then his basis was laid by David Miller. Miller, like Morris, does not get that importance in the IPL because it has often been said that he does not often meet expectations like Glenn Maxwell. However, Miller surprised everyone against the Capitals. Incidentally, if Ben Stokes were fit, Miller would not have got a chance in Playing 11!
Mustafizur Rahman also made a wonderful comeback
Surprised by his strategy, the Royals too, when they added not three or three left-handed paceers in their playing XI. But, it was not like this was a decision taken in a jubilant way. Actually from IPL 2019, DC had lost the most 10 wickets against opener left arm which meant losing 1 wicket after every 18th ball and that was the reason to include three left handed players. Mustafizur Rahman showed this after a long time that even when the expectations are seen to end, one should not be hopeful. The Bangladeshi bowler, who took 2 wickets for 27 runs, had to constantly struggle with sports and fitness after the great early season of 2016. 2017 and 2018 went through the struggle and did not play a single match in 2019 and 2020. In such a situation, not only the royals but also Mustafizur have made a comeback.
Excellent jaydev Unadkat
DC vs RR: If someone made a memorable comeback in the entire match, then it was Jaydev Unadkat. In fact, if any one of these four has lived this basic mantra, “When expectations are over, don’t expect to be hopeless”, then they have remained unadvertised. There was a time when Unadkat was not able to withstand the pressure of getting 8.4 crore rupees in auction, due to which Royals left him and then rejoined the team at a reduced price of 3 crores. However, the sharpening of the undercut did not decrease. Undakat has seen many ups and downs in life and cricket, but he can hardly forget this game of taking 3 wickets for just 15 runs in his entire career.
This quartet of Rajasthan Royals shows that if you have the ability and you always believe in yourself, then you will surely get opportunities to surprise the critics. The team for which these four play, that is, the Royals have been doing this since their birth.
