IPL 2020: DC is panic after a single loss, says bowling coach Ryan Harris

Delhi Capitals faced their first loss of this year’s Indian Premier League (IPL) against the Sunrisers Hyderabad. Delhi Capitals will play their next game against Kolkata Knight Riders and will look to bounce back.

Ryan Harris, Delhi Capitals bowling coach stated that his team was not in their best form in the match against SRH. He also said this match will not create a panic situation in their campaign and they will looking forward to overcoming this loss.

“Coming off an unlucky loss, we just weren’t at our best for that game against the Sunrisers Hyderabad. But, there’s no panicking by any means,” Ryan Harris said during the pre-match press conference on Friday.

“When you look back at it, a couple of balls during our bowling were a little bit of a miss, and they (SRH) probably ran better between the wickets, we didn’t run as well. But 15 runs is not a huge gap,” said Harris on the 15-run loss against Hyderabad.

Delhi Capitals played 23 times matches against Kolkata Knight Riders where they won 10 and lost 13 matches, Harris said he is expecting a competitive match against KKR on Saturday.

“They (KKR) are a pretty good side and are playing good cricket, with some huge players. We are in the middle of the research at the moment to find out how we’re going to bowl to them, and face their bowlers,” said Harris.

When asked on playing first game at Sarjah Ryan said, “Obviously, it’s a new ground for us and games there have been pretty high-scoring, so it’s the other element we are looking at, at the moment.”

Ravichandran Ashwin got injured in the first match of Delhi Capitals in this year’s IPL, “He’s doing excellent. He had a really good session last night with the ball, bat and in the field. So he might be available for selection for tomorrow, but we are still waiting for our medical staff’s confirmation this evening.”

Harris is also expecting his Delhi side to emerge as the favourite in this tournament.

“Coming into the tournament, everyone was saying the same thing that there are no clear favourites this season. I think the competition this year is probably the closest that I can remember and I’ve been involved in a few seasons overall.”

“I think everyone is virtually sitting on the same points, it is going to be close. The games that come down to the wire are the ones you need to win to make sure you’re in those playoffs spots or in the top-two positions,” he added.
