'Youngsters have the freedom in DD'

'Youngsters have  the freedom in DD'

Delhi Daredevils have been regularly investing in youngsters. Seasoned leg-spinner Amit Mishra said the young players in the Delhi Daredevils squad have well-defined roles and are encouraged to play freely.

The franchise and management were surely delighted to see young Sanju Samson taking the lead with a brilliant century during the Daredevils’ massive 97-run victory over Rising Pune Supergiant. The victory cames close on the heels of their opening match loss to Royal Challengers Bangalore, and provided Daredevils the much-needed confidence for the season.

“Our youngsters are provided the opportunities. We have given them the freedom to play freely. Rahul Dravid and the coaches have asked them to play freely. Youngsters have been told about their roles, but there is no pressure. They are playing with a good mindset as you can see and hopefully in coming matches, you will see them playing well,” Mishra said.
Mishra, who picked 3-11 against Supergiant, was pleased with his performance.

“Last match the way I bowled I was very happy. I would like to bowl an attacking line. The fielding and our approach also need to be attacking. Our bowling attack is better, so the bowling has been going good. We will go according to the plan and will try to do even better,” he said.

Mishra was also full of praise for captain Zaheer Khan. “He has played so much and played with best captains of India. He has a vast experience and he can be smart when it comes to captaincy. He has seen everyone who is playing now and guides us about our strengths and weaknesses.”

Mishra said their batting, too, has depth. “Last match you saw that our batsmen clicked. We have all all-rounders and we have batsmen till sixth and seventh position. We will decide the team according to the wicket and the opposition."
