We are almost halfway through the 12th season of the Indian Premier League (IPL). It has already been 2 weeks since the tournament got underway. The league has been full of enthusiasm and exhilaration thus far, as the cricket fanatics have witnessed every sort of cricketing action. The tournament has been surrounded by lots of buzz and excitement as it has already seen lots of upsets and thrilling encounters.
One of the main reasons for this season being different from the previous ones is the fact that even the weaker teams have also performed well this time around. One such team is the Shreyas Iyer-led Delhi Capitals. The franchise has been a part of the IPL since its inception but has unfortunately never been able to even make it to the finals. The team’s last appearance in the playoffs as well was way back in 2012.
However, the team revamped its squad in the previous IPL auction and as a result, it has achieved good outings in the current season. Despite not being extremely consistent, the Blue Army has won three of its first six games. IPL 2019 has, albeit, been a roller-coaster ride for them but still, there are very high chances of the team making it to the knockout stages.
The players are toiling hard
Unlike other seasons, DC has played like a unit this time around. Whilst playing on the field, the young lads of the team have shown an inspiring team-effort thus far and the boys have been seen practising hard, off the field as well. In a recent video, which was posted by the official twitter account of the Delhi Capitals, Sherfane Rutherford was seen toiling hard in the nets. The Guyanese cricketer was seen working on his shot-selection in the video.
He is yet to make an appearance in the tournament but the way he is hitting in the nets, he might come in contention soon in the near future. “Training sessions going strong and Sherfane Rutherford is timing it well! We can’t wait to see our team in action against KKR! #ThisIsNewDelhi #DelhiCapitals,” the tweet read.

The Delhi Capitals will now take on the Kolkata Knight Riders in their next encounter of IPL 2019. It will be the 26th match of this season and will take place on 12th April at the Eden Gardens, Kolkata. Meanwhile, Sherfane Rutherford, who has been warming the bench until now, will definitely like to play his first game, of this season, for the franchise.
