- Kaif said that batting on the pitch in Chennai has been difficult, but the experienced DC batting line-up is certainly up for the challenge
- Delhi Capitals will take on Sunrisers Hyderabad in their fifth match of the VIVO IPL 2021 on Sunday
Chennai: The Delhi Capitals Assistant Coach Mohammad Kaif spoke about his team’s preparedness for the next match. Kaif said, “The way we play against Sunrisers Hyderabad star spinner Rashid Khan will going to be the key factor for us on this pitch.” As you know that, the Delhi Capitals will be looking to build on their momentum when they take on Sunrisers Hyderabad in their next game of the VIVO IPL 2021 here at the MA Chidambaram Stadium on Sunday, 25 April 2021. The JSW and GMR co-owned franchise Delhi Capitals defeated Mumbai Indians by six wickets in their last match.
Kaif added that batting on the pitch in Chennai has been difficult, but the experienced Delhi Capitals batting line-up is certainly up for the challenge, “Batting has been tough on this pitch (in Chennai), but we have got an experienced batting line-up. Shikhar has been batting really well and Smith batted well in the last game. Amit Mishra bowled beautifully in the last game, and we have Ravichandran Ashwin as well. Marcus Stoinis bowled well with the new ball in the last match and the way Rishabh has been leading the side, especially on a turning track, has been a great sign.”
When asked about all-rounder Axar Patel’s return to the Delhi Capitals squad, Kaif said, “With Axar Patel returning to the squad, the balance of the Delhi Capitals squad is now perfect. He has been a key member of this franchise. He played a major role in the team finishing as runner-up last season and it will be no different this year. Axar, Mishra, and Ashwin playing together will be a dream spin bowling attack for us.”
