Players from Delhi Capitals, who were part of the Indian team for the Test series against England, started training for the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021. Rishabh Pant, R Ashwin, Ajinkya Rahane, Ishant Sharma, Axar Patel, Prithvi Shaw and Umesh Yadav all took part in their first net session on Friday night after the quarantine was completed. Delhi Capitals take on the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) on 22 September at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium. Meanwhile, Delhi Capitals fast bowler Anrich Nortje, who picked up 22 wickets in 16 games in his first IPL season in 2020, said it would be important to take it game by game in the second half of the cash-rich league.
“This was where things started to happen for me in the IPL, but I want to take it game by game this season. There is still a lot going on, even after the IPL. We have to try to remember what we did here. Last time we were here “Hopefully we can repeat what we did last time in the UAE,” the 27-year-old said.
The fast bowler added that the second half of the IPL 2021 season will be completely different from the first half of the season.
“What worked in one place is not going to work in 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 are playing different strategies in the second half of the tournament. We have to be on now and just be ready,” he said.
Nortje stated that playing the IPL before the T20 World Cup in the UAE is definitely a great advantage for all T20I players.
IPL 2021 resumes with Indians from Mumbai taking on Chennai Super Kings (CSK) at Dubai International Cricket Stadium on Sunday.
