The fiery Delhi Capitals (DC) fast-bowler, Kagiso Rabada is currently the leading wicket-taker in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020. Rabada has scalped as many as 25 wickets in 14 matches at a brilliant average of 17.80 and a strike rate of 13.12. However, the South African is also quite sharp with his throws, as visible in a video shared by the franchise’s official Twitter handle.
Captioning the video on Twitter, Delhi Capitals wrote: “When @RickyPonting and @MohammadKaif make you do direct hit drills even in the dressing room. #Dream11IPL #YehHaiNayiDilli @KagisoRabada25”.
In the video, Rabada was seen attempting to hit a water bottle placed at a certain distance in an innovative direct hit drill, inside the dressing room of the franchise. The cricketer failed to get the desired result with the first time, before following it up with a successful second attempt.

The Delhi-based franchise will be locking horns with the defending champions Mumbai Indians (MI) in the first qualifier of the ongoing edition of the IPL.
DC finished second on the points table, as they won their last league match against the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the franchise’s final league match. The Delhi-based franchise defeated RCB by a margin of six wickets in the 55th match of IPL 2020.
It will be a golden opportunity for the Delhi Capitals to reach the final for the first time in the cash-rich league, with a poor run in the playoffs. The match against MI on Thursday will mark Delhi’s fifth appearance in the playoffs of an IPL season. A win will help the franchise end their jinx, and skipper Shreyas Iyer will be optimistic of a game-changing performance from Rabada.
