Delhi's dumping of tradition, the story of Sreesanth's career in an over and more in a review of the action from the third week of the IPL
Kotla's green break with tradition
"Grass is for cows," said Ivan Lendl. Curator after curator at Feroz Shah Kotla agreed with the tennis champion, and resolutely refused to let even a blade of green appear on their pitch. But the IPL has left hardly anything unchanged, and after consecutive losses at home, Delhi Daredevils decided to dump tradition into the Yamuna. Suddenly, the brown surface sprouted grass. It was the kind of green that suited Delhi as they proceeded to smash Kings XI Punjab for 231 in a rare win. More curiously than it had appeared though, some of the grass disappeared for Delhi's next two games, bringing them two more losses, and keeping them in familiar territory, at the bottom of the table.
