When Mahela Jayawardene takes the field against India in the tri-series final on Thursday, he will become only the third cricketer in the history of one-day internationals to have played 400 ODIs – a massive achievement.
During his unbeaten innings of 84 from 81 balls against Australia at Kennington Oval on Monday, former Sri Lankan skipper Mahela Jayawardene became the eighth player to cross the 11,000-run mark in one-day internationals
The sixth edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) has been a rather predictable one thus far, making for boring viewing. Four of the teams – Delhi Daredevils, Pune Warriors, defending champions Kolkata Knight Riders, and Kings XI Punjab have been exceedingly poor, as a result of which they find themselves at the bottom of the table.
Delhi Daredevils finally tasted their first victory of IPL 6 after thrashing Mumbai Indians by 9 wickets with 18 balls to spare this evening at the Feroz Shah Kotla. This is Delhi’s first victory which has come after a string of six defeats in a row!
Delhi Daredevils crashed to a sixth defeat in a row in as many matches they have played so far in IPL 6. The hosts suffered an embarrassing defeat by 86 runs in the hands of the Chennai Super Kings at the Feroz Shah Kotla.
