Such has been the varying fortunes of the side that the Delhi Capitals will be glad they are now on the road. The pitches at the Kotla were sluggish and it did not assist the home side at all - a team which has hit the deck fast bowlers and young free-stroking batsmen.

They will land in M Chinnaswamy Stadium, a pitch which should suit the strengths of Delhi Capitals and they will be up against a side which simply does not know what to do to get over the line.

Shikhar Dhawan needs to step up now, he has scored 152 runs in five games at a strike rate of 116.92 so far. Coach Ricky Ponting has already asked him to quicken the pace. Also, his average in IPL games in Bengaluru reads 48.2 and on a much truer surface, he should be able to provide a quick start to his side.

“Everything was going good. We are practicing hard and preparing well, but not been able to execute on the ground. It is cricket. It happens. Personally, I don’t think IPL is very tough. There will be ups and downs for teams,” young Prithvi Shaw said before the match.
