Kagiso Rabada to miss the rest of our IPL season

Delhi Capitals can confirm that Kagiso Rabada is returning to South Africa and will not be available for the remainder of the IPL season, following a precautionary measure taken from Cricket South Africa ahead of the World Cup.

The 23-year-old did not play in our match against CSK at Chepauk as he had a little stiffness in his back. Furthermore, tests were conducted, and the reports were shared with CSA (Cricket South Africa) for analysis.

The board felt that calling him back and giving him rest will be the best course of action. As a franchise we must respect this decision.

Our speedster reflected on his journey and shared his thoughts for the team:

"It is indeed very hard for me to leave the Delhi Capitals at this stage of the tournament,” he said. “But with the World Cup just a month away, a collective decision has been made for me in this regard. It’s been a tremendous season for me with the Delhi Capitals, both on and off the field, and I truly believe that our team can win the trophy."

The current Purple Cap holder has given a few memorable performances this season, the most notable of them being the Super Over he bowled against KKR at home. His 4 for 22 against the Sunrisers was another special effort.

Rabada clinched a total of 25 wickets in 12 matches at a Strike Rate of 11.28 and average of 14.72. His statistics speak volumes of how influential his IPL campaign has been.

His blistering pace will also be missed. 154.23, 153.91, 153.50, and 153.45 km/h - four of the fastest deliveries this season have all been bowled by Rabada.

With Rabada gone, it is up to the rest of the boys to step up to the occasion. Our next challenge is in the form of Rajasthan Royals at home on 4 April 2019.
