Delhi Capitals’ South African star Kagiso Rabada is confident that his team will go to distance in IPL 2020. 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. And Rabada believes they can also win the tournament.
Rabada said that Delhi Capitals had a good season in 2019 and so they can go on and win the competition. He however said that as it is a new tournament they will have to start again and prepare the group together.
“We had a really good season in 2019, so I know that we can challenge and win this competition because we came really close last season, so mentally I guess that helps. But also, it is a new tournament so we have to start again and we’ve got a nice group put together, nice team,” Rabada said in an official release issued by Delhi Capitals.
“We have to start again and start the whole process, so hopefully we can get off to a good start but win at the end of the season — we want to be the most consistent team and win at times when we really, really need to win,” he added.
Ricky Ponting is an extraordinary mind to have in the dressing room. Delhi Capitals players are reaping benefits from his time at the franchise as head coach. 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.
