Delhi eye another dominating show

Captain Gautam Gambhir and Virender Sehwag have been instrumental in taking Delhi to the top of group B and will once again look to dominate proceedings when the hosts take on a lowly-placed Odisha in their Ranji Trophy cricket match, here on Tuesday.

Having already pocketed three of their four matches, Delhi will be looking to consolidate their pole position if the weather in the national capital holds up in the four-day encounter at the Feroz Shah Kotla stadium.

If Gambhir started the side’s opener with a belligerent 147 against Saurashtra in early December then Sehwag started the new year with a blazing hundred against Haryana at Lahli. Having been snubbed by the national selectors after being omitted from even the 30-member squad that was picked for the World Cup, the veteran batsmen have taken to domestic season with purpose.

Even after a couple of fog-affected games at Feroz Shah Kotla, Delhi have never allowed the momentum to slip and have also managed to bag a bonus point from the Gujarat game. Sehwag has scored two centuries while Gambhir and Unmukt Chand have managed one each to make the side’s batting look unbeatable. Odisha, on the other hand, have struggled in the four matches gone by, collecting only one win.
