IPL 13: Delhi have firepower to go all the way, says Axar Patel
IPL 13: Delhi have firepower to go all the way, says Axar Patel

Dubai, Sep 15 (TIWN) After having a decent Indian Premier League (IPL) campaign last year, all-rounder Axar Patel is set to make a mark for Delhi Capitals in the upcoming season starting on September 19 in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

Shreyas Iyer (c) Ajinkya Rahane, Amit Mishra, Avesh Khan, Axar Patel, Harshal Patel, Ishant Sharma, Kagiso Rabada, Keemo Paul, Prithvi Shaw, Ravichandran Ashwin, Rishabh Pant, Sandeep Lamichhane, Shikhar Dhawan, Alex Carey, Lalit Yadav, Daniel Sams, Marcus Stoinis, Mohit Sharma, Shimron Hetmyer, Tushar Deshpande.  There is plenty of experience in the side with the likes of Ajinkya Rahane, Shikhar Dhawan, Rishabh Pant and Shreyas Iyer, all of whom will also be tasked with scoring the bulk of the runs as they are likely to play more often than not. Wicket-keeper batsman Alex Carey is also known to use the long handle well and along with Marcus Stoinis will almost always be required to up the ante in the death overs.  Among the bowlers, Delhi are well placed with three seasoned spinners in Amit Mishra, Axar Patel and R Ashwin in conditions that are likely to help spin bowling. Fast bowlers Ishant Sharma, Kagiso Rabada and Keemo Paul bring to the table plenty of experience as well, leaving the former Australian captain quite a selection headache.
