New Delhi: Delhi Capitals had to face defeat once again in the match played in Delhi on Tuesday. In the 16th match of IPL played against Mumbai Indians, Capitals got defeated on the last ball. After the fourth consecutive defeat, David Warner has given a big statement on Akshar Patel’s batting.
Akshar should bat in the top four
Warner said after the match- I think we have some positive things from the last three matches, but we should not lose wickets in bunches. The way Akshar is hitting the ball, he should be batting in the top four. That is, Warner now wants Akshar Patel to bat in the top order. It is clear from Warner’s statement that he will promote Akshar in the next matches. At present, Akshar is batting at number seven. He batted brilliantly against MI on Tuesday, scoring 54 runs in 25 balls at a strike rate of 216, hitting 4 fours and 5 sixes.
Another result on the final ball of the game 🙌
An epic game to record @mipaltan‘s first win of the season 🔥🔥

It ended wrong, but the players were brilliant
Warner further said- You look at our last three matches of IPL, they have been amazing. Wrong end of it today, but the players were brilliant. Rohit played a brilliant inning in the top order. Norkhya is a world class bowler and we expect the same from him and Mustafizur. We have some positives from the last matches. However, after the first win, Mumbai Indians have moved up to the eighth position in the points table. While the Delhi team has come down to the bottom after losing the first four matches. DC’s next match will be against RCB on 15 April.
