Delhi Capitals will finish seventh in IPL 2020: Brad Hogg

Delhi Capitals 2019

Former Australian spinner, Brad Hogg has predicted that Delhi Capitals are likely to struggle in this year’s IPL. He reckons that the side doesn’t have a solid bowling line-up and depend too much on Kagiso Rabada to do the damage. He also went on to add that in case Rabada gets injured, there’s no potent fast bowler in the squad who could help them win games.

Their flaw is their depth in pace. They rely too heavily on Rabada. If Rabada gets injured, Delhi Capitals are in a lot of trouble. The other flaw they have is that they don’t have depth and quality in their overseas contingent.” Said Hogg on his Youtube channel.

Hogg has also said that Shreyas Iyer led side is packed with brilliant batsmen and has a great batting line up. Delhi Capitals’ batting line is counted as one of the best this season, having a mixture of both young and experienced players in the side.

“The Delhi Capitals’ top six looks very formidable, a mixture of experience with youngsters. They have got Dhawan at the top, along with Prithvi Shaw, Pant and Iyer. So, they are going to make plenty of runs.” he added.

The Australian cricketer believes that picking Ravi Ashwin was a wise decision. The Indian spinner is a world-class spinner, besides being a good leader.

The acquisition of Ashwin is an absolute beauty, quality leadership, good spinner, also can handle the bat in the middle overs. That adds a little bit of depth to their batting and spin department.

As of now, Delhi Capitals have completed their 6-day mandatory quarantine period and have started their training camp. Shreyas Iyer and Co. would be eager to exhibit strong performance in this season and hopefully win the title.

Brad Hogg left the game as one of the better leg-spinners the world has ever seen. He played 123 one-day internationals for Australia, picking 156 wickets at an average of 26.8.
