RR vs DD match preview May 1 2012, Rajasthan Royals vs Delhi Daredevils team, probable Squad and Prediction | ipl 5 reviews
Rajasthan Royals and Delhi Daredevils will be playing against each other on May 1. These both teams played recently and Delhi won the contest by just 1 run. A Rahane and R Dravid played tremendously but all was in vain. Delhi were successful in restricting the Rajasthan within 152 runs. Rajasthan were just 3 wickets down and Delhi pulled off a blinder. M Morkel was very impressive in bowling (Purple Cap Holder). 12 balls 15 runs Required was the mere situation and M Morkel bowled really well and conceded just 3 runs in the 19th over which led Delhi towards Victory.
Thus on Tuesday it will be a good contest to watch, whether Rajasthan can take the revenge in their home ground against Delhi is the mere question arising.

Previous match reviews between the two teams: Delhi won by 1 run on Sunday
Sehwag: Today my bowlers did a fantastic job, especially Morne Morkel. Even I thought we will lose this game. 14 in two overs with 8 wickets in hand, it was very difficult. Special over from Morne did the trick. I am just loving this format, I am just looking to bat for 14-15 overs.
Dravid: I think we had them on the mat, we left it a little too late. We gave a chance to one of their bowlers to bowl one great over and Morne did that. It is disappointing. I am proud of my boys, Delhi has a lot of great players, loved the way the boys fought today. These things keep happening. We need to pick ourselves up. It is fantastic to watch Rahane bat, credit to all the hard work he has put in. He is doing what the selectors wanted him to, score tons and tons of runs.
Morne Morkel: I knew that it was an important phase, and glad I did well. Rahane batted well from the start, I always wanted to hit the target and I was confident. You need to be confident and back yourself in games like these.
Rahane: Very disappointed right now. Morne bowled well, credit goes to Delhi team. We’ve been batting well together, there are 7 games to go and Dravid and I would like to continue this.
Rahane is in tears. He batted so well and he couldn’t see his team home. You can’t help but feel sorry for the man. Sehwag is elated, and why not! They have defended 152 and it shows how strong a team they are. Morne Morkel was the man, he bowled a brilliant penultimate over and took the all important wicket of Hodge. At the end, they won the game by just 1 run. The closest any game has gone, apart from the Chennai Bangalore game at Chepauk.
