Commenting on her first training session with the Delhi Capitals, left-arm spinner Vicky Ostwal said: “From being on TV IPL to getting into a franchise is a big journey for me. It will slowly sink. It was great getting to know all the players and the members of the coaching staff.”
Ostwal also said he wants to take tips from all-rounder Axar Patel: “I want to meet Axar Patel as soon as possible. As a left arm spinner, he was an inspiration to me. I’m looking for advice from him on how I should bowl in T20s. It will also be good to be working with a legend of the game – Ricky Ponting and Pravin Amre sir and it’s such a proud moment for me to be with those guys.”
Batsman Ashwin Hebbar was quite pleased with how his first training session went: “It was wonderful to be in the Delhi Capitals camp. I’m really happy and excited to be here. I was a bit nervous as it was my first nets session with an IPL team, but I had a good session. When I started hitting, I couldn’t think of anything else.”
