It has been a remarkable season for Delhi Capitals in the Indian Premier League 2019. They have made things fall in place with their brilliant display of cricketing skills on the field. They became the second team to qualify in this year’s edition of the tournament. Meanwhile, Sourav Ganguly reveals the secret behind the success.
The impact of Ricky Ponting and Sourav Ganguly has been huge on the Delhi franchise. The players are gaining huge knowledge on the duo before letting themselves out in the middle. Besides the coaching panel, Shreyas Iyer has been fantastic in leading the side.
Speaking of the successful campaign so far, Ganguly quoted that they have got the experienced squad in their ranks. He believes that the mix of youth and the experience is the right kind of combination to win a certain tournament in the game of cricket.
“There is no such word called inexperience in this team. We have the right mix of youth and experience. It is also a huge boost to get an experienced player like Shikhar coming out and batting with so much confidence,” Ganguly told TOI, adding: “Shikhar has been brilliant for us. His form was very crucial for the Capitals.”
We didn’t panicked:
Sourav Ganguly highlighted the fact that they have trusted a few players and persisted with them despite losing the games. He quoted that the amount of faith they kept on the players have been reverted back in the performances, which helped them to seal the place in playoffs.
“Right after losing the Kings XI Punjab match, Capitals didn’t react in panic by chopping and changing the team. They persisted with proven players and this team is really making us proud.”
Bowlers and Axar Patel contributed as well:
Meanwhile, Sourav Ganguly also credited Axar Patel for contributing when it required the most. He is decent with the ball and also gave those crucial runs with the bat in the end overs. Ganguly also lauded the way Kagiso Rabada and the other fast bowlers delivered.
“It’s not only the batsmen who are making it count. The bowlers are doing excellent work. Rabada has been outstanding, so too the other fast bowlers. Axar Patel too has contributed in all departments,” Ganguly said.
Well, as Sourav Ganguly said, the team has shown great determination in the middle. They have been brilliant in the season so far and would like to make the most of the opportunity in the playoffs.
