Delhi Daredevils vs Rajasthan Royals
Rajasthan Royals pacer Kevon Cooper, who has been one of the finds of the season, hopes to carry on his good form when the 2008 champions face table toppers Delhi Daredevils in the Indian Premier League (IPL) at the Ferozeshah Kotla stadium here Sunday.
The rookie West Indian is one of the leading wicket takers in the tournament with 10 scalps from five matches. The 23-year-old Trinidadian has played a key role in Rajasthan Royals resurgence this year.
Cooper said Rajasthan, who are now fifth in the league with eight points from eight matches, are looking to bounce back from their 46-run loss against Royal Challengers in their last match. “Boys have got four days rest, so we are looking to get back to playing cricket. Guys are ready,” he said after a training session here Saturday.
Asked about his performance, Cooper said: “It is a dream for me to be playing in IPL. Ten wickets in five games didn’t expect this at all. Hopefully I can carry on the good run.”
