After a disappointing end to their last year’s campaign, Delhi Capitals are looking to bring in Shane Watson as their new assistant coach. Delhi dominated the group stage by securing its place at the summit. However, things didn’t pan out as they would have eventually hoped for. A lacklustre performance in the qualifiers undid all of their hard work in the group stage.
Now Delhi Capitals is looking to clinch their first IPL title with reignited ambitions. Delhi will begin its campaign with a new squad and a few changes in the management. After parting ways with Mohammad Kaif and Ajay Ratra there are a few candidates who are being pursued.
Shane Watson to Delhi Capitals – current position
According to various sources, Shane Watson will be the new assistant coach for DC. All things are considered to be in agreement except for formalities. Shane Watson still has not officially signed any document.
Shane Watson is one of the best in limited-overs cricket format. He could turn out to be the missing piece of the puzzle in DC’s search for a trophy. The two-time IPL winner is in the recommendation to work alongside his former teammate Ricky Pointing. His decisiveness and his ability to look at the game from a different perspective certainly gives an edge to his team. The combination of Ricky Pointing and Shane Watson might turn Delhi’s fortune.
Potential Candidates for DC
Along with Shane Watson, two more names have recently surfaced. Praveen Amre has been a part of the DC franchise for a long time. The former Indian batsman could fill the vacant post of assistant coach. Ajit Agarkar is another option who can fill the position. An official announcement by Delhi Capitals is not out yet.
