New Delhi: Newly-appointed Delhi captain Ishant Sharma wants his players to shoulder responsibility as he feels the core of the current team is “fairly experienced” having played together for nearly four seasons.

The likes of Unmukt Chand, Manan Sharma, vice-captain Milind Kumar have all been around for some time now and Ishant is confident that the team will perform to its potential as they gear up for their Ranji Trophy group A opening round encounter against Assam,on Friday.

“The dressing room atmosphere is good. We have had good preparation. This is a good team with a lot of young players. But they have been around for three-four years now and they have the experience. Now is the time to take responsibility. The first target is to reach the knock-out stage,” the Delhi skipper said on the eve of their opening game.
