New Delhi: five losses in a row delhi capitals The condition of has been battered. This season for Delhi under the captaincy of David Warner has been like a nightmare so far. The team has proved unsuccessful on all three fronts. Especially Delhi has got the most disappointment in batting. Only captain David Warner is scoring runs. Prithvi Shaw’s poor form has put the team in the most trouble and in such a situation, Delhi has now called some players in its camp.
This season for Delhi Capitals, except Warner, no batsman has been able to score runs openly. Be it an Indian player or a foreigner, the edge of the bats of the Delhi batsmen has been seen to be blunt at the moment. Especially the failure of the three domestic Indian batsmen in terms of runs has given them a headache. The biggest name in this is Prithvi Shaw, who has been retained by the team continuously.
