Among all the teams in this year’s Indian Premier League, Delhi Capitals’ bowling has stood out.
The attacking nature of the South Africans Anrich Nortje and Kagiso Rabada, discipline of Avesh Khan and the craft of spin-twin R. Ashwin and Axar Patel have not only given the team a formidable look but also considerably reduced the worries of bowling coach James Hopes.
“The two of them (Nortje and Rabada) bowl 150 kmph an hour so I’d be disappointed if they weren’t attacking and aggressive,'' said Hopes while addressing the media on Monday.
“Having both those guys on the park has really enabled us to do that in the Powerplay.”
He admitted the team had not peaked yet and pointed out, “To be honest, we were still a little bit sloppy in the field. We’ve four games to go and, and hopefully, we’ve got the finals after that. We’re starting to show signs that we’re on the right track, definitely.”
