Delhi Capitals, after playing out a lopsided Super Over clash against KXIP, will take on Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the IPL 2020 contest later on Friday. The capital franchise had a four-day break ahead of their match against CSK and their assistant coach Mohammad Kaif said that the team has improved a lot during this phase.
Kaif is confident that Delhi Capitals will perform well against the MS Dhoni-led side. He mentioned that CSK are a strong team and spin is their main weapon but added that their will not be much turn in Dubai so that will cut off the danger.
“Chennai Super Kings are of course a strong team, their main weapon is their spinners during the middle overs. But thankfully there hasn’t been much turn in Dubai yet and there’s ample dew so I think the spinners haven’t been as dangerous but these are new conditions with a lot of changes since the last IPL which was 1.5 years ago.
So we are seeing this as a whole new competition altogether. So the previous stats won’t necessarily matter,” Kaif said in a video posted by the official twitter handle of Delhi Capitals.
Delhi Capitals will look to better their performance further in the upcoming season and Australia’s most successful coach Ricky Ponting is doing the best he can. His impact on the team has also been quick as Delhi Capitals, studded with some young talents, went on to qualify for the playoffs for the first time in seven years in the last season of IPL.
Delhi Capitals have Shreyas Iyer leading fellow youngsters like Prithvi Shaw and Rishabh Pant in their ranks. Senior India opener Shikhar Dhawan only adds to the experience of their squad. They will also be bolstered with the presence of premier India spinner Ravichandran Ashwin in the upcoming season of IPL.
