The high flying Delhi youngsters of the previous match- Sanju Samson and Rishabh Pant  got a taste of the age-old adage as Delhi’s batting was at its shambolic best with eight wickets down at just 48 runs on the board, chasing a mighty 213 to win. The lack of experience was evident in their shot selection as they tried to dominate a high-quality bowling attack right from ball one.

Samson was first to perish as he mistimed a hoick to deep square-leg where Simmons took a comfortable catch to hand Sanju a golden duck. Iyyer (3) was next in line as he was gobbled up by Harbhajan off the bowling of Malinga. The hero of the last match, Rishabh Pant was expected to approach his innings sensibly but he too left everyone disappointed as he bagged a golden duck. Karun Nair’s misery with the bat continued as his innings ended at 21.

With score reading 31-4, the most experienced batting pair of DD, Corey Anderson and Marlon Samuels, too departed soon after, leaving Delhi rattling at 40-6. Twitter vented out its anger and frustration over the shameful DD collapse.

Here’s a look at some of the tweets–
