Miscreants attack Delhi Capitals team bus, Mumbai cops file FIR

Some miscreants attacked the Delhi Capitals’ team bus ahead of the next Indian Premier League (IPL) season. The squad has arrived in Mumbai to begin preparations for the IPL 2022 season, which begins on March 27. At the Brabourne Stadium on that day, the team would face the Mumbai Indians. Players and coaches will be quarantined for three days prior to joining the team bubble.

On March 15, the team welcomed head coach Ricky Ponting and assistant coach James Hopes. The team will stay in Colaba’s Taj Mahal Palace. Meanwhile, it was revealed that in Mumbai, some miscreants attacked DC’s team bus. The Mumbai Police have registered a First Information Report (FIR) under four distinct sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC). Five to six unknown miscreants have been charged in the FIR.

Meanwhile, the 2020 finalists announced this week that Shane Watson will serve as their assistant coach for the future season. He’ll join the coaching staff alongside former Australian teammates Ricky Ponting and James Hopes. Meanwhile, Rishabh Pant will take charge of the team once again, with all eyes on him. After all, the wicketkeeper-batsman has been having a good run recently.

Apart from the southpaw, the Delhi franchise kept Prithvi Shaw, Axar Patel, and Anrich Nortje. Due to the big auction, the team was forced to part ways with several prominent players, including Shreyas Iyer, Shikhar Dhawan, Marcus Stoinus, and Kagiso Rabada. They have, however, signed David Warner, Mitchell Marsh, and Kuldeep Yadav.

Meanwhile, IPL 2022 is going to be a major affair, with the addition of two new clubs — Lucknow Super Giants and Gujarat Titans. As a result, for the first time since the 2011 season, a total of ten teams will compete for the prestigious championship.
