Delhi Capitals are on a role this season as they chase their maiden IPL trophy. The side is looking balanced and young skipper Shreyas Iyer has done a tremendous job leading the young and dynamic side. DC pacer Kagiso Rabada heaped praises on his skipper who has amassed 335 runs this season.

Sharing how tough it can be lead international stars, Rabada opines that Shreyas has done a tremendous job this season. He adds that Shreyas is able to keep his calm in crunch situations and that has helped him immensely in decision making.

Shreyas has been really unbelievable as a captain. He is young. For a captain, especially when you are leading an overseas player on a big stage, (it) is a huge task. So he has done really well so far. He is leading from the front,” Rabada said in a virtual press conference.

“Shreyas is just a normal guy who is chilled out and when we get on the field he is a captain who has to make decisions and I am sure Ricky (Ponting – the head coach) is helping him.”

Tushar needs minor adjustments

Bowling alongside two fierce Proteas speedsters, DC’s Tushar Deshpande has been impressive in his debut season. Barring the 26 run over to Chris Gayle, the young speedster has hardly done anything wrong. His talent has impressed Rabada immensely, who feels that with experience Tushar will get better.

Tushar needs to learn a lot. He just needs to take it game by game. He has not bowled badly at all even in the last game,” Rabada said. “Like I said it is just about those minor adjustments. What he has do is learn from his experiences and that’s how is gonna get better,” he added.

DC is currently at the top of the table with 14 points, despite their loss to KXIP. And they will be looking to secure a top two finish as they face Kolkata Knight Riders in Saturday’s first game.
