Delhi Capitals skipper Shreyas Iyer looked satiated with their new acquisitions and said that new recruits who have joined DC the 2021 VIVO IPL Auction bring a lot of experience to the squad.

Delhi clinched good bids and got the likes of experienced players such as Steve Smith and Tom Curran. Besides, they even grabbed four talented domestic players- Lukman Meriwala, Ripal Patel, Vishnu Vinod and Manimaran Siddharth.

We had maintained our core unit from the last season and the new players that have come in bring a lot of experience to the squad. Along with international players such as Steve Smith and Tom Curran coming in, we have a few domestic players who have joined the squad as well. Lukman Meriwala has done tremendously well in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy. It’s going to be a great experience for the other youngsters, who have come in,” Iyer said in a statement issued by the franchise.

It’s going to be challenging because if you look at the other teams, they have also framed their teams in a pretty unique way and obviously the core and strength have been pretty much similar for all the teams. The IPL can surprise you at any point in time and I feel this season is going to be more exciting.

‘Stick to the basics and get the best out of ourselves,’ reckons Iyer

We need to keep things simple and focus on our processes, which we have been following in the last two seasons. We need to stick to the same routine and not complicate things. We need to see to it that we stick to the basics and get the best out of ourselves,” said Iyer.

It was phenomenal to see their support last season and obviously, we love the energy from the fans even though we didn’t get to see them on the field. I would love to see them on the field if things open up in the coming IPL. I would just like to tell the fans that keep supporting us, keep loving us and we are just looking forward to getting you the trophy this season and we all could celebrate the victory together,” the 26-year-old added.

Delhi Capitals finished runner ups in IPL 2020, as they lost to Mumbai Indians in the finals.
