An off-spinner bowling leg-spin is like multi-lingual: Tendulkar

While Tendulkar did not take any names, his observation on off-spinners trying to bowl leg-break would certainly be music to Ravichandran Ashwin's ears, as he is trying his hand at wrist spin with an eye on national comeback in the shorter versions.

Former India batsman and one of Sachin Tendulkar's good friends Vinod Kambli has thrown a dare towards RR batsman Sanju Samson, challenging him to score a hundred in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) as the Mumbai veteran believes Samson is not worthy of the Orange Camp he possesses as the league's top-scorer currently.

IPL 2018: Rajpoot, Tye combine to power KXIP beat DD

IPL 2018: Rajpoot, Tye combine to power KXIP beat DD

In a low-scoring game, it just takes a couple of wickets to turn things around. KXIP were restricted to a lowly 143 by DD and there was happiness all over the dug-out. But little were they aware that on a tricky Kotla wicket, even a score of 143 was equivalent to chasing 180. With the ball stopping and coming, and rearing up at times, Ankit Rajpoot (2/23) applied proper maths to strike twice, while Andrew Tye (2/25) returned with a couple of scalps to clinch the purple cap. The duo replicated Liam Plunkett (3/17), Trent Boult (2/21) and Avesh Khan's (2/36) efforts to stun Delhi at their home ground.

IPL 2018 DD vs KXIP: Three players to watch out for

The reason for Delhi misfiring could be talked down to the fact that they have failed to string performances in unison. There have been days when the bowling stood up and on other days, just the batting. But all is not lost yet and with Ferozeshah Kotla a proven hunting ground, Delhi should hope that they put together a team show.
