The Delhi Duo: Ashwin and Mishra

We all know Delhi Capitals as an inconsistent side in the IPL as they haven’t won the championship yet and even fail to reach the qualifiers each year. 

Looking sharper:

This season seems a bit different though, having won both their matches so far against Chennai Super Kings and Kings XI Punjab.

This year even their squad looks more mature where the squad is mixed with youth and experience. They have hitters like Prithvi Shaw and Rishabh Pant and experienced spinners like Amit Mishra and R Ashwin.

As Ashwin is out of the playing squad due to a shoulder injury Amit Mishra’s role has even become furthermore important. In a talk with ANI, Mishra said that in UAE the pitch is grassy and doesn’t help spinners a lot, he told that the spinner needs to be smart and has to bowl in the right areas.

Ashwin and Mishra tactics:

Mishra told me that he and Ashwin work closely to analyze their game and even work with the young spinners in the team. He said that in the nets they keep experimenting their variations and talk about the strategy of the opposition and plan their strategy accordingly.

He also praised the head coach Ricky Ponting that he ensures that the boys focus only on the right things and stay in the right frame of mind.
