A. Ross taylor is a player who is a player who can hit the ball out of the park many times. The players who replace Ross is also not making any significant differance so Ros should give a chance as if he gets going then it will strengthen the Strong Batting line up of Delhi and he is pretty handy in the field too.....
A. It's always good to have a strong reserve bench and Delhi has managed to maintain their intensity throughout this IPL! Their TOP ORDER has been brutal and has absolutely minced their opposition in and out! The only concern with this Delhi team is their lower middle order which has to show a bit of consistency in it! The reason why I would go with Ross, is that he has experience of playing in India and can handle the spinners well! Andre Russel, inspite of being terrific, hasn't had much of an experience of playing in the Indian conditions! Ross specializes in this format of the game and I won't be surprised if a couple of big hits gets him going again! Delhi are in a very comfortable position now and they can now, go in for a bit of testing; testing in the sense, more of a "strengthening the reserve bench" practice! Another point of consideration is that Mahela is also not firing in this IPL! So I would go with Ross for this match at least, push him up the order and let his willow do the talking!
A. Delhi selectors have re think in taking Tylor to todays match, he was totaly out of form and Russel still in Bench, we never saw that how russel will be batting and keeping him out from match because of his poor bowling on last match.Delhi have done another good decision on today that Nagar is out from Team, He was very poor at bating and keeping him in the team is no meaning.
A. Delhi have rode an excellent run of form of their top three batsmen throughout the tournament, and that is the crux why they find themselves perched at the peak. But as we have seen in two of their last three matches,The openers failed to perform and the middle order collapsed like a pack of cards. Mahela has not been his true self,and with Pietersen back home, Delhi's middle order looks fragile to be honest.Ross has been struggling for form throughout the length of the tournament,and given the chances he has been given, I guess it's better Delhi looked for other options. Andre Russel might be a very good pic,as he is no mug with the bat.Personally, Ross shouldn't feature in Daredevils's scheme of things as of now,since he has wasted opportunities and there are talented cricketers in the lurch.
A. No, lot of chances already given by Team management. He hasn't contributed to team delhi in this season. His form also in dilemma. Its better off playing some other overseas player than worrying about Ross.
A. YES,Ross Taylor should be given opportunity because in play offs,if pitches are bowler friendly,he will be needed to steady the inning,another if they have to chase more than 200 and early loss of wickets,he will also be helpful
A. DD should not make any major changes for this match, and continue with their winning combination. Should win this match and 100% secure their place in top 4.
Ross Taylor is a great batsman but not in good form, admitted by Ross himself.
DD still 2 more matches to play after this, and after winning this match can keep experiment for last match or two.
I feel if winning combination team is fit, the same combination should be continued for rest of the tournament till finals. Changes should be made only if circumstance demand so.
