Trevor Penney, the fielding coach of the Deccan Chargers, would certainly be a worried man what with the Bulls putting up such a dismal performance on the field.
While there may not be too many complaints about their batting and bowling performances, it is not unknown that their sloppy fielding and innumerable dropped catches has seen them gift away matches.
The Bulls take on Delhi Daredevils in Hyderabad today. Delhi are in complete contrast to the Bulls as they have been a side which has performed exceptionally well this season . Having lost the top slot to the Knights from Kolkata, Delhi would want to win this match and once again claim the number one position.
While the Daredevils would enter the match with a lot of confidence, the Chargers, who have no chance of making it to the next round, would play for pride.
No matter what combination they chose, the Bulls have unfortunately fallen short of the required adrenal on that particular day (but for their matches against the Pune Warriors, the only team they managed to defeat this season). Dale Steyn, who sat out in the last match, is most likely to make a comeback to the side with a high possibility of Daniel Harris making way for the pacer.
Meanwhile, the Daredevils do not have much to worry about. Though they would not take the Chargers lightly, yet it won’t surprise anyone if they rest a few key players. The absence of Kevin Pietersen should hardly worry them too.
Ajit Agarkar, who has been in and out of the side, could again see himself figuring among the playing 11 while Virender Sehwag would look to score as many runs as possible and reclaim the orange cap.
While it seems that Delhi is most likely to sail through in this match, there is a possibility of the Bulls getting back to their raging ways.
