Ajit Agarkar, a former Indian speedster and the newly hired assistant coach of the Delhi Capitals (DC), believes that in T20 cricket, there are no strong or weak teams.
Ajit Agarkar, a right-arm pacer, has represented India in 26 Tests, 191 One Day Internationals, and four Twenty20 Internationals. In his stellar career, he has taken 58 Test wickets, 288 One Day International wickets, and 3 T20 International wickets.
During an appearance on Star Sports’ IPL Gameplan, Agarkar said that the Indian Premier League demonstrates that no club is a clear favourite (IPL). He said that the victors of the Indian Premier League’s first season, Rajasthan Royals, were chastised for their auction tactics, but they went on to win the competition.
“There are no strong or weak teams in T20 cricket; I wish this were true and you could choose one or two sides, but that is not the reality.” “We’ve seen enough proof in previous IPL editions that no team is easy to defeat,” he said.
“Everyone laughed at the squad Rajasthan Royals chose in the auction in the inaugural edition of the IPL, yet they went on to win the championship.”
Shane Watson is set to join Ajit Agarkar and Pravin Amre at the Delhi Capitals as an assistant coach.
Shane Watson, a former all-rounder for Australia’s national cricket team, has been selected as the new Assistant Coach of the Delhi Capitals (DC) for the forthcoming Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022. Ricky Ponting (Head Coach), Pravin Amre (Assistant Coach), Ajit Agarkar (Assistant Coach), and James Hopes will all be part of the DC coaching group (Bowling Coach).
Watson said that the Indian Premier League is the finest T20 league in the world and that he has loved his experience as a player with three different clubs when discussing his appointment.
“The IPL is the world’s finest T20 event. As a player, I have fantastic memories of winning the IPL with Rajasthan Royals in 2008, headed by the amazing Shane Warne, RCB, and then CSK. As a player, I had amazing memories, and now I have the opportunity to teach.
“It’s been a dream come true to be able to work with Ricky Ponting.” As a captain, he was a fantastic leader, and now I get to coach under him. He is presently considered one of the top instructors in the world. So I’m definitely looking forward to learning the ropes from Ricky.”
“They have a strong team in the Delhi Capitals, and now is the moment to win their first championship.”
“I’m very excited to travel over there, work with the guys, and help them out as much as I can in the hopes of winning the first championship.” He said, “I can’t wait to go over there.”
Meanwhile, on March 27, the Delhi Capitals will face the Mumbai Indians (MI) in the inaugural match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022.
