Khel Today Bureau
New Delhi: The Delhi Capitals are all set to take on Sunrisers Hyderabad in their next match of the TATA IPL 2023 at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, Hyderabad on Monday.
Speaking ahead of the game, Delhi Capitals’ Vice-Captain Axar Patel said, “A win certainly changes the environment in the team. A few doubts creep in when you’re not able to cross the line. Our win in the last match will help us build confidence. We will try to keep winning games.”
The Delhi Capitals lost a few wickets towards the end of their chase against KKR in their last game. However, Axar played a crucial knock of 19 from 22 balls to take his team to a four-wicket victory. When asked about the game, the Vice-Captain said, “The wicket was a bit tricky and they bowled quite well. Therefore, I wanted to take the game as deep as possible. There’s always room for improvement and we’ll definitely try to play a near-perfect game in our upcoming matches. If we can do that then that’ll be a big confidence booster as well.”
Looking ahead to their next match, the all-rounder said, “The wicket in Hyderabad is good for batting. The pitch will help our batters as we have been playing on slow wickets in our last few games. The ball comes onto the bat nicely in Hyderabad. Sunrisers Hyderabad’s fast bowling unit will pose a challenge to us, but we’ll plan properly to take on the challenge.”
The match between Delhi Capitals and Sunrisers Hyderabad will begin at 7:30 PM IST.
