Mumbai, April 8: Whether as a player, or as a coaching staff, Pravin Amre is an exceptional character. He loves to keep things simple. He  believes in his work ethics, backs his skills and more importantly supports his team or trainees to the core.

Perhaps, for those reasons, usually low profile, technically sound and hard working Amre is loved by many serious cricket professionals and his trainees, in particular.

If not much as an international player, but as a domestic cricket veteran and later as a coach, he has been lauded, respected and looked up with expectations by many. 

Any doubt about Amre's qualities, cricketing knowledge, guidance and credentials, can be verified with his dear disciple Ajnkya Rahane, who like his coach loves to work silently and let his bat answer his critics.

Over the years, Amre has held many responsibilities as a support staff with various teams. Presently, he is the Assistant Coach of Delhi Capitals in the Indian Premier League (IPL). Of course, DC  has several high profile stalwarts like Ricky Ponting and Sourav Ganguly to name a few, who are bound do hog the limelight. But for DC players, Amre is alas a great support, guide and mentor. 

 Delhi Capitals suffered a 29-run defeat against Mumbai Indians in their fifth match of the IPL 2024 at Wankhede Stadium on Sunday. The home side posted a mammoth total of 234/5 in their 20 overs, but Tristan Stubbs' fiery unbeaten knock of 71 runs in 25 balls went in vain as the Delhi Capitals were restricted to 205/8.

Not shying away from the loss, DC's Assistant Coach Pravin Amre reflected, "In this format, it's always those last five overs that are critical. The whole idea was to keep them under 200, but You have to give credit to Romario Shepherd for the way he batted."

"It was overall a good entertaining game. I'm proud of the way we batted. I think till 19th over, our scores were same around 201," he further added.

Having lost four of the five matches so far, Amre said, "We have to start well in this particular tournament, but injuries have impacted us. In the first game, Ishant could bowl only two overs, then Mukesh got injured. Kuldeep hasn't played the last three games, Marsh is injured, so all these are key players and it has impacted overall."

Speaking about the approach ahead, the 55-year-old said, "Well, the beauty of this game and IPL is, any team can beat anyone. One biggest plus is we beat CSK, and we have that credential."

"In IPL you have to click in all the departments. We have to work on our bowling, it has to fire, then only we can win back-to-back matches," he concluded.

The Delhi Capitals will take on Lucknow Super Giants in their next match at Ekana Stadium in Lucknow on Friday.

Will Delhi Capitals bounce back and win against LSG is not something that is likely to bother someone like Amre. Reason being, he is perhaps aware that if the process and spirit are satisfactory, results are bound to come in future. (With IANS support)
