Mumbai: In the IPL 2021, the Delhi Capitals team is making a comeback under the captaincy of Rishabh Pant. Now there is a lot of good news for the Delhi team as 2 veterans have returned to their team. The team has won three out of the four matches played so far, while it has been defeated in only one match. IPL 2021, MI vs DC: Delhi Capitals thrashed Mumbai Indians by 6 wickets
Delhi now have to play their next match against Sunrisers Hyderabad and before that, captain Rishabh Pant has got double good news. In fact, fast bowler Ishant Sharma, who could not play a single match this season due to a leg injury, is fully fit and available for selection. Ishant was ruled out of the entire tournament due to injury after playing just one match in the last IPL season. The second major good news has come from the spin department for Pant.
Even before the start of IPL 2021, Delhi Capitals suffered a major setback. Akshar Patel, the finest spinner of this team, was caught in the corona, but now he is completely healthy. Being infected with Corona, Akshar could not take part in any of the team’s matches so far. However, the relief news is for the team that the characters have become fully fit and have also joined the team.
