New Delhi: This time in the Indian Premier League (IPL), more spinners than fast bowlers can do the wonders. This is believed by the “Gabbar” Shikhar Dhawan of Delhi Capitals. The explosive opening batsman says that the presence of the finest spinners like Ashwin in his team’s bowling lineup could prove to be an advantage in the upcoming IPL.
Pitches can be spoiled due to continuous match
Shikhar said in a media interaction program organized by his team, “Around 60 matches are to be played on 3 grounds in the UAE.” In such a situation, the fear of the pitch going bad will be more If the pitch is good, we will make a lot of runs, but if the pitch is not good then it will not be easy. He said, we have not played cricket in recent months, so we have to see how the pitches are prepared, how they are being used. Due to their excessive use in the middle of the tournament, it is possible to start taking turns or the ball starts to be low.
Delhi capitals are more experienced in such pitches
Shikhar said, in terms of poor pitches, Delhi Capitals are currently showing a slight advantage due to the strength of their spin attack on their other rivals, which R Ashwin has become very strong due to being bought from Kings XI Punjab outside the auction. He said we have great spinners. Ashwin has arrived. Sandeep Lamichhane, Amit Mishra and Akshar Patel are already present. According to this, we have a very strong spin bowling side and at times these batting also do well, so our batting has also got depth. Due to the experience of all these, they are going to prove to be a big advantage for us.
There will be relief from matches in three places
Shikhar, who expresses the fear of spoiling the pitch due to only three grounds, believes that it will get some benefit. He says that this time the matches will be played without running away, due to which the players will get some relief and fatigue will also be reduced. He said, your body will not get tired due to less travel. Usually, in the IPL our match ends late at night and we need to catch a flight till 11 am next morning to go to a different city for another match. Now all players will be able to recover better during matches due to less travel.
