“It can only be up from here and hopefully, the young boys will turn up on the high-scoring wicket in Bengaluru. You have to find a way to make a comeback. This has happened to everyone,” Ganguly said.
Ganguly further said that DC is a team full of uncapped youngsters which will take its own time to blossom into a winning outfit and one needs to give this DC side that requisite duration.
“The loss certainly hurts, especially because of the way this team has played since 2019. But these things happen in sport. It’s never easy when you lose. There are so many youngsters on our side and we’ll take time to be a good team,” said Ganguly.
But Ganguly insisted that the players need to do some soul searching into what has gone wrong.
“When you play for a period of time, you will go through such phases. It’s about going back to your rooms, looking at the mirror and asking yourself how I can change.”
When asked about the aspects that the team needs to improve upon, Ganguly said, “We’ll have to bat much better. Axar was absolutely brilliant and that’s why we got a score of above 170. We need others to stand up. Lalit bowled well on the wicket in Delhi. But the most important thing for us is to get together and put runs on the board.”
The Delhi Capitals will take on Royal Challengers Bangalore in their next match in Bengaluru on Saturday.
