Last three games were not as per what we wanted: Ajinkya Rahane
Ajinkya Rahane the Delhi Capitals batsmen feel that they started off well but the last few matches haven’t been as they wanted but it normally happens in a tournament like IPL.
“I think we started off really well, won seven out of nine games initially, and then the last three games were not as per what we wanted, but this is going to happen in a tournament like IPL. You play 14 league games, it’s a big tournament,” Ajinkya Rahane said during the pre-match press conference.
Ajinkya Rahane further went on to opine that the next two games are very important for the side as it would decide where the Delhi Capitals would stand in the points table at the end of the season.
“I think the upcoming two games are really important, and it’s all about staying positive. Three losses don’t make us a bad team. It’s all about playing to our strength and backing each and every individual. As a team, we are really looking forward to playing against Mumbai now and then RCB,” Rahane added.
