Delhi Capitals (DC) assistant coach Shane Watson has given a warning to the opposition skipper, KL Rahul saying that the plenty of options in the team can sometimes cause a headache for the team management ahead of their game against Lucknow Super Giants (LSG). Watson also acknowledged that LSG have all their bases covered in the squad.
DC will be locking horns with LSG on Thursday, while the capitals have won just one match in the tournament so far out of the two they played, LSG has winning momentum on their side as they won the last two games. Jason Holder joined LSG in the last game and it has strengthened their all-rounders’ section.
Along with Holder, they have quality all-rounders in Krunal Pandya and Deepak Hooda. Shane Watson warned KL Rahul saying that having plenty of options in the team can cause headaches for the captain.
During a media interaction as per the quotes in Hindustan Times, Shane Watson said, “You can’t also have too many bowling options. It can be difficult to decide how you’re going to give everyone a go. It’s great to have plenty of options but sometimes, it can provide a big headache for the captain. But at the moment, they have all the bases covered.”
Shane Watson also admitted that the quality all-rounders in the LSG can give them added advantage and can also pose a threat to the DC batting unit.
Shane Watson elaborated, “Having quality all-round options is a huge advantage to the captain, there’s no doubt. If one of the main bowlers is having an off-day, you can mix and match your bowlers, try to limit the damage. Krunal Pandya has bowled really well, so did Deepak. Jason Holder was a huge inclusion in the last game for LSG. So, there’s no doubt that having all-round bowling options plays a part.”
