Have to look at IPL remainder as a fresh season: Amre

Ahead of the resumption of the 2021 IPL season, Pravin Amre stresses the need to look at the remainder as a fresh season

In the first half of the 2021 IPL season, the Delhi Capitals ensured that they had a thorough momentum running with seven wins in the tournament, topping the table, ahead of the Chennai Super Kings. While the franchise certainly would be bolstered by the return of their star player Shreyas Iyer, they would be equally cursed by the long break in between. 

DC’s assistant coach Pravin Amre insisted that the franchise would have to look at the remainder of the IPL season as a fresh one, with the varied conditions in the Middle East coming into play. He also added that it would be crucial for the franchise to not show any signs of complacency. 

“We have to look at the remainder of the season as a fresh one. There has been a long break after the first half and we will be playing in different conditions and wickets. We are looking to start from scratch and not show any complacency after a brilliant performance in the first half of the tournament,” Amre was quoted as saying in a media release.

“We will look to play with the same intensity that we showed in our first match of the IPL 2021,” he added.

Amre also credited the franchise’s management for sending the squad early to the Middle East, where they are currently training for the restart of the tournament. 

“It's going to be humid when the season resumes and it is important for the players to get used to the wickets and conditions here in the UAE. Credit to the DC management for sending us here early, so that we have enough time to prepare well with the conditions on offer,” Amre said.
