Bottom-placed Priyam Garg will be a part of Delhi Capitals’ (DC) final IPL 2023 roster, sources with knowledge have revealed to Sportskeeda. There will be a formal announcement soon.
Kamlesh Nagarkoti’s decision to leave the competition earlier this week due to a back issue
After suffering five straight defeats, Kamlesh Nagarkoti’s earlier this week decision to withdraw from the tournament due to a back issue was an insult to a literal hurt for DC. The DC management quickly called Bengal white-ball captain Abhimanyu Easwaran and Uttar Pradesh’s Garg for a two-day trial.
Sportskeeda has gathered that the two hitters took part in team practises on Tuesday and Wednesday. The Capitals’ fortunes also altered at the same time since yesterday, when they scored their first victory of the season by defeating the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) by four wickets.
In an effort to strengthen a faltering batting order, they hired the former captain of India’s Under-19 team
However, they recruited the former captain of India’s Under-19 team in an effort to improve a struggling batting order.
If experience is taken into account, one can believe that it is the proper choice. Abhimanyu Easwaran, who previously played very occasionally for India, is unquestionably the hitter with the better technical skill. Priyam Garg, though, has three IPL seasons’ worth of experience.
After placing second at the 2020 Under-19 World Cup, the young player was immediately signed by SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) for a staggering 1.90 crore. Garg has a meagre average and strike rate of 15.69 and 115.14 in 17 IPL innings while scoring 251 runs.
The experience to high-pressure scenarios has helped Garg surpass Easwaran in this two-horse race, despite the fact that his aggregate T20 statistics are superior.
