After the stunning knock of the 79 on the debut, Delhi surprise Healten Dalal was asked how he reacted to the gambling of Pascal's humming of the bowlers. "There was no such plan, I'm an attacking player and Gautam Bhai told me to play my natural game," he says. Dalal could afford to smile at the end of the first play day, but Delhi's latent in the plan against the opposition bowler in the opposition played a vital role in the collapse of the home team from 162/2 to 317 all out.
On the second day, Rob was expecting a team from Vikram Rathour who had learned their lessons after watching the tribulations of Delhi against bowling and spin. But the supreme order of Himachal al-Pradesh simply collapsed only on a twin attack from Delhi's left-wing duo – Vikas Mishra and Varun Sood. They formed six scalps between them to keep them panting in 58/6 and staring down possible. Fifty pounds by a fire by Rishi Down, and all sorts of meaty donations from the low order, helped Yumach al-Pradesh reach 216/8.
Early on Tuesday, the play was stopped for nearly 75 minutes due to heavy rain spells. After that, visitors were out of the unsatisfactory beginning after Ishant Sharma rattled the stump of their opener Priyanshu Khanduri. Following the loss, Himachi looks like they've got the measure of bowling, with the Bains Bunny caressing Ishant's three limits. It was when Nitish Rana brought the spinners on. Suddenly, the skin of the game changed. There was a touch of nearby fieldmen, and the madmen simply entered their shell. This defensive thinking led to their fall. Between Bakers 16-23, Himachal Pradesh lost five wickets in just 9 runs. The Delhi bullshit was not unusual, but it was accurate.
The second half of the play belongs to Dahwan. The veteran team, together with young Akant Saint, who plays in this first-class game, gave their team the hope with a rear-back stand with 95 points behind the seventh. What worked for them was their positive stroke games and confidence in using their legs to spins. Devan went down the runway on several occasions, and even got on one knee to throw away the turbulent Twins of Delhi. San Potter four short times of the mark a century and a half, while Daawan will soon follow him for 64, done by a bad sanction.
Milestones: Delhi 317 (D Shorey 88, H Dalal 79, M Dagar 3/63) HP 216/8 (Rishi Dhawan 64, Ekant Sen 46, Varun Sood 4/53).
