James Hopes, Delhi Capitals (DC) bowling coach, is hoping for a string of victories in their upcoming matches in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL). Delhi will lock horns with last season’s runners-up Rajasthan Royals (RR) in the 11th match of the IPL 2023 at the Barsapara Cricket Stadium in Guwahati on April 8, Saturday.
“We have a few young players, who are facing bowling speeds of high 140s or low 150s for the first time. They are learning it the hard way through the competition. Hopefully, they’ll get more comfortable with the high pace and start turning their performances around,” the 44-year-old told Delhi Capitals.
Abishek Porel is a special talent: Hopes
“Abishek Porel is a special talent. He got our innings going with the bat against Gujarat Titans and he did well with the gloves behind the wicket. He’s a very good wicketkeeper and he’ll catch up with the speed of the game with the bat as well,” Hopes further added.
