Sharing his thoughts on the Capitals' wrist-spinner Kuldeep Yadav, who picked up figures of 3/18 against Mumbai, Agarkar said, "Kuldeep has been a fantastic bowler over the years. I am very happy for him, and every time he bowls well, he's going to get you wickets, which we hope that he can do. You can't play an IPL with just 11 players, so the more players put their hands up, the better it is for the team."
Praising the positive environment created by Head Coach Ricky Ponting, the Assistant Coach said, "Joining the team has been superb. Since Ricky Ponting, James Hopes and Pravin Amre have been here for a while, the new guys, like me, are learning from them. Over the last few years, one thing that always stood out at Delhi Capitals was the healthy and positive environment within the team, and that usually translates onto the field.”
The Delhi Capitals will be up against Gujarat Titans at 7:30 pm on Saturday.
