After Delhi Capitals registered their fifth win on Friday, their head scout Vijay Dahiya has stated that his players are ready to face any challenge that came on their way in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020.
Delhi Capitals are, currently, at the top of the IPL 2020 points table with 10 points. In their last match against Rajasthan Royals, they registered a remarkable win albeit setting a below-par target. Due to the early fall of the top-order, DC posted 185 runs target which RR would have easily chased down. But the DC bowlers chocked Rajasthan-based franchise’s batters and were bundled out for 138. And eventually, Shreyas Iyer-led side won the game by 46 runs.
Reviewing the match between DC and RR, Vijay Dahiya heaped praise on Delhi Capital’s teamwork. He said that his side is not dependent on one player to guide them to victory. Every individual has stepped up to take responsibility for their game.
“It was a team game played by the individuals, you play your role, you play your part or sometimes you do something extraordinary, and this is the whole crux of this team. This is what the team is all about, that’s what our boys are doing.
“I mean we are not dependent on one person, every game you see a different individual steps up, raises his hand and delivers for the team and that’s what the whole quality of any team,” said Vijay Dahiya in an official release issued by Delhi Capitals.
Comparatively less taxing on your body in the UAE- Vijay Dahiya.
As players have to travel around three venues to play matches in the UAE, Vijay Dahiya claimed that it is challenging to play back to back matches. But he reckons that it is much easier to play in the UAE as compared to India because they have to travel less. Dahiya, however, believes that his team is ready to take up every challenge thrown to them.
“I guess there’s no doubt about back-to-back matches proving to be challenging. Barring Dubai, the travel for us is over two hours for each match, and that’s the main challenge you have here.
“Otherwise, when you are playing back home in India, there’s more air-time, and you end up getting up early and then traveling to another city. So I think it’s comparatively less taxing on your body here and doesn’t push you to the limits compared to what happens when you play in India,” said Dahiya.
“But yes, it is still demanding because we have different grounds, different mindsets, different surfaces, and tough conditions. However, I believe our team is up for any kind of challenges thrown at them,” he added.
Meanwhile, Delhi Capitals will play their next match against Mumbai Indians on Sunday (October 11).
