Delhi Capitals gamers, who had been a part of the Indian squad for the Test collection towards England, have begun coaching for the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021. Rishabh Pant, R Ashwin, Ajinkya Rahane, Ishant Sharma, Axar Patel, Prithvi Shaw and Umesh Yadav all took half of their first nets session on Friday night following the completion of quarantine. Delhi Capitals will tackle the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) on September 22 on the Dubai International Cricket Stadium. Meanwhile, Delhi Capitals’ quick bowler Anrich Nortje, who picked up 22 wickets in 16 matches in his first-ever IPL season in 2020 has mentioned it is going to be vital to take it match by match within the second half of the cash-rich league.
“It was here where things started to happen for me in the IPL, but I am looking to take it match by match this season. There’s a lot coming up, even after the IPL. We have to try and remember what we did here the last time we were here and try and implement that again. Hopefully, we can repeat what we did in the UAE the last time we were here,” mentioned the 27-year-old.
The quick bowler added that the second half of the IPL 2021 season can be fully completely different from the primary half of the season.
“What worked at one place is not going to work at another place so we have to take it game by game. The upcoming games in the UAE are going to be completely different from the games we had earlier in the season. Maybe teams will field different strategies in the second half of the tournament. We have to be switched on now and just be ready,” he mentioned.
Nortje expressed that enjoying the IPL earlier than the T20 World Cup within the UAE is definitely an enormous benefit for all T20I gamers.
IPL 2021 resumes with Mumbai Indians taking over Chennai Super Kings (CSK) on the Dubai International Cricket Stadium on Sunday.
