Delhi Capitals slumped down to their fifth straight defeat as the Royal Challengers Bangalore were clinical in their approach and from dictating early with the bat to coming back even stronger with the ball, the Blue Army were completely outgunned, outclassed and outran in a display that had no resemblance to earlier heroics that Delhi has so far posted in the antiquity of the tournament.
Ever since Rishabh Pant has been sidelined due to the accident that he had ahead of the season, the Capitals have performed like school boys, particularly their woeful batting order has gone from bad to worse and the complications simply refuse to stop.
The woes of Delhi Capitals continue and for any fan of the Blues, it is getting tougher to watch
Former Delhi Capitals player who did manage to propel Delhi to greater glory in terms of results and the rounds conquered, Virender Sehwag was absolutely livid with the way in which Delhi Capitals has fared of late and he believes that it is collective failure on the team’s behalf as they now suffer the consequences of poor team-building.
There is a big name in their shed in the form of Rovman Powell, still to be unleashed and yet it feels as if Delhi is losing their plot completely. Sehwag in his latest tirade against the Capitals was absolutely relentless as he tore down the mythical bubble that Delhi is somehow basking in and also expressed his dissatisfaction with the presence of two of cricketing greats who have somehow failed to show Delhi the true light of the day.
This is what Virender Sehwag had to say about the team’s current outings in the ongoing tournament
Talking on Cricbuzz, Sehwag said, “To be honest with you, there’s zero value of the staff that’s present there. It doesn’t matter who strong your team is, it’s the players who are performing badly out there. You can have as many great minds as you like in the dressing room, if your players aren’t scoring runs or taking wickets, what they will do?”

He concluded by saying, “I will never understand that. You have to pick players who can win you matches, and you don’t have to direct them everytime. When you have those players, you can become champions. Delhi do have those players, but they’re not scoring runs or taking wickets. You can make strategies, in the end, those who enter the ground have to perform.”
