The South African spearhead Kagiso Rabada who is all geared up to rock in this edition of IPL after finishing the last season on a high has picked four batsmen whom he feels has troubled him the most.
Kagiso Rabada is one of the top-tier all-round bowlers along with Jasprit Bumrah, Jofra Archer and Chris Morris who can bowl in almost all the phases of the games including the most difficult phase in slog overs.
Who would have forgotten that dream yorker from Kagiso Rabada to Andre Russell to knock him down in the super over in 2019 IPL?. But Andre Russell had his share of fun against Kagiso Rabada as he belted Kagiso Rabada all around the park.
When asked about the difficult batsmen that he bowled to, Kagiso Rabada answered
A lot of them. (Andre) Russell, (Chris) Gayle, ABD (AB de Villiers) and Virat Kohli are some of the names that stand out immediately for me.
Delhi Capitals had a dramatic turnaround in the previous year where they reached the playoffs at the back of some brilliant performances from Rishabh Pant
It gives me confidence no doubt. However, this is a new season and you need to do everything over again. Hopefully this time DC can come through as champions
DC is one of the very few exciting teams that have a bunch of some raw talents to go with experienced players. The likes of Prithvi Shaw, Shreyas Iyer, Kagiso Rabada, Rishabh Pant all are young and fearless, meanwhile, Shikhar Dhawan, Ajinkya Rahane, Ishant Sharma and Ravichandran Ashwin form the core group of experienced players. Here’s what Kagiso Rabada had to say about the team combination.
Yes, definitely. It's a nice mix of youth and experience, and brings in a lot of balance to the side no doubt. There are plenty of performers in this side who I believe can put up their hand on any given day.
