In his homecoming season, the 34-year-old scored a complete of 521 runs in 16 matches at a strike-rate of 135.67, which made it his second-best IPL season by way of runs accrued. Speaking on Sunday, Dhawan stated he’s assured that his group can take the cup this season.
“As a team, we are looking forward to the tournament. We are really confident and are building a great bond. We are all coming back to cricket now, and are already creating that energy, and creating that bond within the team. I feel the trust is also very good between all of us, and I think we have a very balanced side which can do well in the conditions here in UAE. We are confident that we are going to take the cup this season,” stated the dashing opener.
Much of Delhi Capitals’ success final 12 months was all the way down to the general group performances and proactive captaincy from Shreyas Iyer, and Dhawan believes the addition of extra skilled brains will solely assist the younger captain. “Last season he led in a very nice manner, and with Ashwin, Ajinkya coming in with their experience, I think they will share their insights, and it can be really helpful for the team. I think Shreyas has an open mind to learn from both seniors and juniors, and he will lead us in the right way.”
