Pravin Amre praises Jake Fraser-McGurk says, “Have an impact on the game” After LSG vs DC Clash

Pravin Amre praises Jake Fraser-McGurk

The youngster Jake Fraser-McGurk has guided the side to register a six-wicket victory in the match against the Lucknow Super Giants on Friday.

Jake Fraser-McGurk who was brought in the DC Squad as a replacement for Ngidi Lungi, benched during a few games despite the Capitals batting line-up failing to show consistency.

However, the youngster has been an impressive half-century in the match. “Jake’s slot is at the top order, but there we have David Warner. In the first game, Sai Hope batted well at the top before being injured. We knew that Jake would get an opportunity and he grabbed the chance with both hands,” Amre said.

The Capitals team management was impressed with Frase-McGurk’s batting show in the nets and hence decided to give him a go.

“He was batting really well in the nets, and we could make out that he has that X-factor and that ability to strike those sixes. In his innings, he started off with two sixes. In the last two games, we played well but could not cross the line, so we wanted to have an impact on the game, and he delivered,” Amre said.

“For every talent, it is important to go out there in the middle and perform. There’s a difference between doing well in the nets and performing in a game. I am very happy that he batted the way that’s required for this format,” the former India international added.

Fraser has had a phenomenal year so far, having scored 257 runs in eight matches he played in the Big Bash League featuring the Melbourne Renegades.

His impressive performance earned him an Australia cap in the ODI series against the West Indies this year and joined IPL and put Capitals on the back in the track.

Coming to the tournament, Delhi Capitals secured two victories in 6 matches of the IPL 2024 campaign and secured 9th position in the IPL 2024 points table.

Delhi Capitals will be playing their next match against Delhi Capitals on April 17 at Narendra Modi Stadium.
