Delhi Capitals two match winners
Mitchell Marsh will be another really big season for him.

Former Australia player Shane Watson has opined on the key strengths of the Delhi Capitals. 

“Well, I think there are a lot of very talented players; yeah, David Warner, for me, is just at the top of the order. He will continue to have a point to prove, and everyone will be like riding off his back of him. He’s always scored so many runs in the IPL. And to be an opening batter and set the platform as he does is very important. I think Mitchell Marsh will be another really big season for him. He has incredible skill with the bat alone, and how he’s batting and taking the game on will play a big part. And then we’ve got some youngsters with the ball, fast bowlers, Nagarkoti and Chetan Sakariya. And then we’ve also got our spinners, like Axar and Kuldeep Yadav. Those two guys, to be able to have world-class spinners bowling especially through the middle, to be able to try and get wickets and keep the runs down, is so critically important.”

Watson further spoke on the home advantage that Delhi Capitals have this season: “For sure, Delhi’s normally, conventionally, a lower, turning sort of wicket, and we’ve got the bowlers to exploit that with our spinners alone. We can make the most of those conditions with Axar, Kuldeep Yadav, and the batters we’ve got. It’s a smaller ground as well. So, in any IPL, you must make your home ground a fortress.”
