Delhi Capitals began their first training session under the watchful eyes of head coach Jonathan Batty in Mumbai on 28 February 2023.
Speaking about the exciting bunch of DC players ahead of the inaugural edition of the Women’s Premier League, Batty said, “The players started to gel straightaway in our first practice session. The talent is outstanding in our group. I was impressed with how the players batted during the session.”
The Head Coach also expressed that the Delhi Capitals have the potential to reach the Final of the tournament, “We have compiled a strong squad, a super group of players. If we can get the players performing at their maximum potential in the tournament, then we should hopefully qualify for the Final. But as a coaching group, we must ensure that our players are the best versions of themselves every day.”
DC is yet to announce their captain for the inaugural edition of the Women’s Premier League. It looks like a solid unit with a mix of youth and experience.
They will start their campaign against Royal Challengers Bangalore in CCI, Brabourne Stadium on 5 March 2023.
