The current IPL series is turning out to be a bad series for Delhi Capitals. Delhi Capitals are at the bottom position with 4 points from 2 wins and 5 losses from 7 matches played. Under the leadership of David Warner, the team is struggling to form the right combination and winning combination.
They come in different combinations in every game. Prithivi Shah was trusted for 7 matches. But, after that they dropped him. Delhi Capitals’ batting has been terrible. Warner is shining in batting and Henrich Norkia in bowling. But other overseas players like Mitchell Marsh and Riley Russo did not play well. Now, they didn’t capitalize on the opportunities given to Phil Salt, Rovmen Powell and Mustafizur Rahman. David Warner’s strike rate is not remarkable and that strike rate is not enough for T20 cricket.
In this case, Delhi Capitals head coach Ricky Ponting, who met the media before the match against Sunrisers Hyderabad, gave a stern warning to the players. “Yes! We used overseas players. They haven’t gotten to the point yet. Riley Roussow played 2 games in the beginning. Riley Roussow played in 2 matches. We are struggling for the right lineup of overseas players.
Mitchell Marsh is important for us, he can bowl 4 overs. A good batsman in the top order. To remove him from the team, there is an immediate need to field with 5 bowlers. Going down with 5 bowlers is not good for T20. 6 bowlers are required. Only then will it be right. Mitchell Marsh was on form for the ODI series against India. Rowman Powell plays on pitches like India pitches in May, so pitches are not a problem.
So I am going to sit down with our batting unit and discuss it. Because we practice well. Why what comes in training does not show in matches. This is what I am going to tell them seriously. So this is what we are going to talk about. We have also discussed taking different initiatives. You will see a different Delhi team in today’s match.
Batters must contribute from 1st to 8th base. Otherwise it will be difficult for them. The respective players must stand up and finish the match when it is their turn. This is what I expect, this cannot be done, their position is difficult. That’s why I say that if we play properly, luck will turn to us. These same players will make big scores,” said Panting.
