“Shikhar has been batting really well and Smith batted well in the last game. Amit Mishra bowled beautifully in the last game, and we have Ravichandran Ashwin as well.

Marcus Stoinis bowled well with the new ball in the last match and the way Rishabh has been leading the side, especially on a turning track, has been a great sign.”

When asked about all-rounder Axar Patel’s return to the Delhi Capitals squad after recovering from COVID-19, Kaif said, “The balance of the Delhi Capitals squad is now perfect.”

“He has been a key member of this franchise. He played a major role in the team finishing as runner-up last season and it will be no different this year. Axar, Mishra and Ashwin playing together will be a dream spin bowling attack for us.”
