IPL 2021: We’ve sufficient time to get back into rhythm, says Delhi Capitals assistant coach Ajay Ratra

jay Ratra, who is currently overlooking the Delhi Capitals' pre-season camp along with assistant coach Pravin Amre, believes that Delhi Capitals has sufficient time to get back into the rhythm for the second half of the Indian Premier League (IPL).

"It's a different season altogether, generally it happens in full flow, and we had good momentum in the first half. Now that it's happening after a break, we will have to start afresh, and that's why our franchise has organized this camp a little early. We do have sufficient time to get back into the rhythm we had in the first half of the competition, and fortunately, most of our players have been playing international cricket," said Ratra.

Delhi Capitals had a great run in the first half of the IPL 2021. With six wins and two losses from eight matches, Delhi is currently on the top of the points table.

When asked whether the long gap will break the team's momentum, Ratra opined, "Even in Test cricket, sometimes it becomes difficult to find the rhythm after lunch breaks. So, breaks do make a difference."

"However, as I said before, we still have time, and most of our core players are playing international cricket, so they might be already in a good rhythm. Whereas, those who are coming from a long break, are utilising this camp. We have been spending more time with our domestic players, and there are good facilities here, so we will hopefully find our rhythm soon," he added.
