Former Sri Lankan captain Kumar Sangakkara feels that the Delhi Capitals may have to be ruled out of the IPL play-offs due to the lack of consistent performance by the top order in the last leg matches. After a spectacular performance in the first leg, Delhi slipped to third place after three consecutive defeats. They have to win the last two league matches to qualify for the last four.
Sangakkara said on Star Sports’ Cricket Live ‘,’ I am worried about Delhi Capitals. Their batsmen could not walk in the last few matches. He said, ‘Delhi’s team is heavily dependent on the top order. The rest of the batsmen are not able to score fast. Don’t know if she will be able to qualify in the last four or not.
He said, ‘Mumbai has already arrived and I think RCB will also reach. I think Kings XI Punjab will also be in the last four. ‘ Former India captain Sunil Gavaskar believes that Punjab and Rajasthan will have a tough fight for fourth place.
“Apart from Delhi, RCB and Mumbai, the fourth place will be contested against Rajasthan Royals and Punjab,” he said.
