IPL 2022: Former Kolkata Knight Riders opener and author Aakash Chopra believes that Delhi Capitals is in a state of bother after their loss to Gujarat Titans here on Saturday at Pune.
Delhi won their first game against Mumbai Indians, they looked out and dead even in that game but contributions from the lower-order saw them over the line.
The top order of the Capital failed yet again against GT and this time DC got no support from the lower order batters and lost the game by 14 runs.
There Are Not A Lot of Positives for Delhi Capitals: Aakash Chopra
After their defeat, last night against GT, Aakash Chopra in his YouTube video said that there aren’t a lot of positives for DC to take from the game.
“The Delhi Capitals are in dire straits. Things might change once David Warner and Nortje come”, Chopra said in his video.
Chopra at the same time questioned Capitals’ batting effort. None of Tim Seifert, Mandeep Singh or Prithivi Shaw got going in the match. He said: “It seemed they will win the match till the time Rishabh Pant was at the crease. Actually, they should have won the match, you had Rovman Powell and Rishabh Pant. Prithvi Shaw has gotten out twice while playing the pull. Hit the ball along the ground, why are you hitting it in the sky?”
At the same time, Chopra was quite impressed with Khaleel Ahmed’s bowling and said that it was good to see Khaleel bowling so well. He though lambasted Capitals fielding and said if capitals would have held onto their chances then Shardul Thakur and Axar Patel too have gotten wickets. He Said, “Mustafizur Rahman picks up wickets, which is fantastic. Khaleel Ahmed is a huge improvement, Khaleel is bowling really, really well. The fielding was also not that good, they dropped a couple of catches else Shardul and Axar might have also had wickets in their kitty.”
Delhi Capitals would hope that with the return of David Warner and Mitchell Marsh, their batting will find some solidity.
