IT’S A good thing Chris Morris was out in the middle rather than the sidelines as Delhi Daredevils almost pulled off a Houdini act at the Ferozshah Kotla. Not because he was the man responsible for even bringing his team close to achieving an improbable run-chase. But for his nuisance value in the dug-out.

Zaheer Khan may not have been very effective in Delhi Daredevils’ IPL campaign so far but assistant coach Praveen Amre on Friday said the Indian paceman was leading the side well and takes responsibility of bowling in pressure situations.
