Former Rajasthan Royals captain, Ajinkya Rahane was bought by Delhi Capitals for IPL 2020. Now, Rahane as revealed how BCCI president Sourav Ganguly convinced him to join Delhi Capitals squad.
Now, Delhi Capitals is a stronger team than the previous season. Ajinkya Rahane is a veteran player whose experience will help Delhi capitals to win their maiden IPL title.
During the Instagram live chat with Vikrant Gupta, Ajinkya Rahane said,
“I am really excited to play for the Delhi Capitals. I remember when I was in Hampshire last year and was playing country cricket, Sourav Ganguly was covering India’s World Cup game. He asked me whether I wanted to play and told me to take my time.”
“I took my time and the fact that I would get to play under Ganguly and Ponting I felt would help my growth as a player. But as I said, Rajasthan Royals gave me an opportunity and I am grateful to them,” he added.
He further said, “In T20s I have always opened and even in domestic cricket and in the IPL I have opened. So yes opening is my favorite position. But I have always believed in giving my best to the team wherever they need me to be.
So even if Delhi Capitals tell me to bat in the middle order and although the opening is my preference. I am even ready for that as a cricketer and as a professional athlete.”
