Delhi assistant head coach Shane Watson has revealed that David Warner and Anrich Notrje are available to play against Lucknow on April 6. The development has happened at a time when the team is looking to get back to winning ways. The 2020-finalists lost their previous game against Gujarat by 14 runs. Notably, the team has been struggling in the powerplay overs in the absence of Warner as they lost three wickets each against Mumbai and Gujarat.
Meanwhile, Watson has confirmed that the left-hander has completed his three-day quarantine. Watson added that Nortje is also available for the game against the Indian T20 League debutants. Nortje was waiting to get clearance from Cricket South Africa (CSA) as he has battled injuries since playing last for his nation in the T20 World Cup last year.
â€œDavid Warner is definitely out of quarantine period now and is available for tomorrow nightâ€™s game which is very exciting. Anrich Nortje has been doing incredibly well over the last couple of weeks since heâ€™s arrived here in India. Last night, he passed his last sort of fitness test to get through and be passed fit for selection, which is exciting that heâ€™s now available for selection,â€ said Watson in the pre-match virtual press conference.
The former Australia all-rounder further added that Mitchell Marsh, who got injured during the Pakistan tour, is progressing well in regards to his recovery. The two-time ODI World Cup winner also said that Marsh has to go through another training session.
â€œMitch Marsh is progressing really well. Whether heâ€™s available for selection, there is still one more training session as well to get through tonight. But heâ€™s been progressing really well which is very exciting with the firepower he brings to the Delhi squad as well.â€
