Weak in the middle, admits Amre

After its third loss in four home games, to Mumbai Indians on Thursday, Delhi Capitals talent head Pravin Amre admitted the team needs to work on scoring and preserving wickets in the middle overs.

“In Mumbai we scored more than 200 runs. When there is bounce, it suits our batsmen. We know this Kotla wicket. It is very important how we adapt to this,” he insisted.

Asked about erring in not playing an extra spinner or bowling Amit Mishra out, Amre stressed on consistency.

“We wanted to be consistent with our selection. Ishant Sharma has been doing well in the PowerPlays. As for Mishra, maybe it was because left-hander Krunal (Pandya) was batting.

“Rabada and Morris are also wicket-taking bowlers and we know both Krunal and Hardik (Pandya) are very good against spinners. If a foreign player had been batting, Mishra would definitely have bowled,” he said.

Krunal, meanwhile, admitted his team was not expecting such a big total.
