Delhi Capitals (DC) fast bowler Kagiso Rabada is currently the leading wicket-taker in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020. Rabada has accounted for 25 wickets in 14 games with an average of 17.80 and a strike rate of 13, 12. However, the South African is also quite sharp with his throws, as seen in a video shared by the franchise’s official Twitter handle. “When @RickyPonting and @MohammadKaif let you do direct hit exercises, even in the locker room. # Dream11IPL #YehHaiNayiDilli @ KagisoRabada25,” read the caption. Rabada was seen trying to hit a water bottle placed at a certain distance in an innovative critical hit exercise, which took place in the team’s locker room. The cricketer failed to get his shot on target the first time before continuing with a successful second attempt.


Here’s the video demonstrating the exercise:

The Delhi-based franchise will compete against defending champion Mumbai Indians (MI) in the first qualifier of the current edition.

DC finished second on the points table, after beating Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the franchise’s final league game. The Delhi-based franchise beat RCB by a margin of six wickets in the 55th match of IPL 2020.

Delhi Capitals have not qualified for the final in any edition of the cash-rich league, with a bad run in the playoffs. Thursday’s game against MI marks Delhi’s fifth play-off appearance in an IPL season. A win will help the franchise end their jinx, and skipper Shreyas Iyer will be optimistic about Rabada’s groundbreaking achievement.
