Last year’s finalist Delhi Capitals will hope to be better this time with more experience behind his name in IPL 2021. The team, led by young Shreas Ayer, showed that when a side gel together and playing as a side, the results must follow.
And the strong link between the players was evident when veteran Amit Mishra, who missed most of the IPL last season after injuring himself during a match, said he wanted a teammate and friend Ishant Sharma to play 150 test matches for India after recently playing his 100th test during the India-England series, which the hosts won 3-1.
In an interview with Delhi Capitals in an interview posted on their official Twitter account, Amit recalled how the two former Ranji and international teammates often enjoyed each other’s company.
“Ishant and I have partnered many times for the Indian team. He has played 100 test matches and I would like to congratulate him on this achievement and I want him to play another 25-30 matches and reach 150. He must play at least 150 test matches. When necessary, we tried to contribute to the country with cotton wool, “said Mishra.
Ishant, who now often plays as a test specialist, has so far played 101 test matches for the nation with 303 wickets in his name with one 10-wicket and 11 five-wicket.
