Delhi Capitals (DC) fast bowler Kagiso Rabada says his team have unfinished business in the Indian Premier League (IPL), especially after losing the final last year. Delhi lost the final against Mumbai Indians (MI) in the IPL 2020 final and Rabada believes that they now have what it takes to clinch the title.
"We've had unfinished business since the day the Delhi Capitals didn't win a final. We are coming back after a break and it's just one final stretch for us," the South Africa fast bowler said, according to a DC media release
"Hopefully, we can do it for our fans and our families this season. We are just going to give it our best shot. The guys believe that they can do it so that's a great sign," he added.
Speaking of Shreyas Iyer's return to the side, Rabada feels that his inclusion adds great balance to the side. "It's awesome to have Shreyas back. He's a phenomenal batter and an integral part of our team. He's good for the balance of the team. I'm sure he's itching to play. He seems to be in good spirits and he seems to be hitting the ball well," Rabada, who has picked up eight wickets this season, said.
DC go into the second half of IPL 2021 at the top of the table and Rabada reckons that they have given themselves a great chance of making the playoffs. "I think the guys are in a good space as we have been playing some cricket since the first half of the tournament. That's a positive for the team," Rabada said.
"It's also nice to start the second half of the season being on top of the table. However, we still have a lot of work to do. We've given ourselves a good chance to qualify for the Playoffs and earn a spot in the final," the fast bowler said.
DC will begin the second leg of their campaign against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) on Wednesday (September 22).
